A capsule wardrobe is a minimalistic and efficient sustainable fashion closet.
It consists of perfect basics with durable quality which you can combine together and keep longer because they’re never out of style. Usually, a capsule wardrobe consists of around 30 clothing pieces made with ecological materials such as organic fibers or recycled materials. The idea is to stay minimalist and consume less but of course stay stylish.
In general, people who decide to adopt a sustainable lifestyle, make sure to select the perfect outfits that answer the following points:
1) good for the planet
2) made from ethical production
3) durable and timeless fashion products.
You can make a divide in a few seasons so you can change your essential items depending on each season, summer or fall. In this way, you can create your own sustainable wardrobe! We have found some nice inspiration for outfits consisting of basics which you can add to your own capsule collection. For each outfit we found similar eco-friendly items, not harmful for the environment or our health, so you can start adopting an eco-conscious lifestyle and stop following fast fashion trends right now!
