We live in the age of fast fashion where we are used to replacing our clothes and accessories with new, more fashionable ones every season, often closing an eye on quality and focusing mostly on design.
Due to the low prices of fast fashion, everyday clothes do not have the same perceived value they once had. Quality fabrics are increasingly less common to come across and are generally deemed too pricey comparing to their lower quality alternatives.
Still, despite the incredible technical advancements of the third millennium, fast fashion pieces haven't yet come close to looking like high quality USA-made garments.
But what to do when the price of quality clothing is higher than what we are used to paying in chain stores? There is a solution that is as simple as it is brilliant: a capsule wardrobe.
A capsule wardrobe consists of a few strong basics that don't go out of fashion; clothes that you can wear for years without them looking outdated. You don't really need that many items if the ones you have are well-made and versatile.
The key to a functional capsule wardrobe lies in choosing clothes withing the same color palette so you can easily mix and match them to create dozens of different outfits, and in having a variety of accessories to change up your look depending on your mood and the occasion.
For men, these essentials might include a suit, a few dress shirts and polo shirts, a pair of dark jeans and a sports coat. For women, they usually include a classic little black dress, a pair of dress pants, a pencil skirt, a few shirts and blouses and a cardigan or everyday elegant jacket. Make sure that all of your wardrobe staples are comfortable to wear, durable and made of high quality fabrics.
The "buy less, buy better" approach will not only save you a lot of time and money, but over time will also rid you of items that are old, unfashionable or otherwise not perfect.
Focusing on quality instead of quantity is the easiest way to build a stylish contemporary wardrobe, no matter what your budget is!
