Happy Saturday! I have a gift for you: a new + better version of the free capsule wardrobe planner! I’ve been planning my Summer wardrobe these past few weeks + using the planner like crazy, but there were a few useful things missing from it. So I added a couple of new sections:
NEW Word Association Section
One thing that really helps me clarify my a style is word association. I’ll write down every style I can think of — urban, boho, classic, minimal, feminine, cool, earthy, professional, sporty, etc.. Sometimes I’ll even include cities that instantly make me think of a particular style — Berlin, Paris, Palm Springs, Seattle, etc.. Then I circle the ones that represent what I’m going for + cross out the ones I don’t. Boom. Instant style clarity.
NEW Brand Section
Remember this post about shopping tips? Well, the very first tip was to make a list of your go-to brands:
Having a list of go-to brands is like having a secret weapon. Think about it–brands design with their ideal client in mind, and you better believe they have her profiled in detail. They know her body type, her style, and her price range.
There are literally thousands of brands out there and they each target a different type of person. So your brands are out there! Explore one brand at a time on sites like Piperlime or Polyvore. When you find one that screams you, add it to your list and make notes about the specific things that fit you there. When you’re in need of a party dress, just check your list and rely on your brand. You’ll save so much time.
So there you go! Two brand new sections to help you with your capsule wardrobe planning. And as always, it’s free.
Love this! This may seem like a weird question, but is there a good resource for giving examples of what different styles are exactly? Having a hard time understanding th difference between many of the fashion terms used. Feel like this would help me really try to define and understand what my style is.
That is a really good question. :) Hm. I think one quick way to get a feel for styles is to search them on Pinterest. For example, type in “boho outfits” + see what comes up + try to observe commonalities in what you’re seeing.
I’ll keep thinking! :)
This is brilliant!!
So this idea is fantastic and I plan to jump on board. Now, I have a hard time parting with clothes, so I am nervous! What about things like leggings, tights, pj’s, under tanks, etc? Are they separate from the capsule?
Also, what do you do with the clothes you do not take with you into the next season. Store them, donate, what? It seems like after time I would end up with a full closet again when that is what I am trying to solve. Any insight is great!

I would also love to know what happens with “last season’s” pieces? I’m also curious when mixing all of your seasons together, how many total pieces do you have?
