Creating a Capsule Wardrobe Is All the Rage Right Now

Is owning fewer clothes the key to happiness?

By: Hannah Baxter

Is there anything worse than staring at your closet—which, for many of us, is practically bursting at the seams—and deciding that you hate everything you own and have nothing to wear? It’s happened to us on more than one occasion, and despite our nearly incessant drive to shop and piles upon piles of clothing, it has yet to disappear. Eliminating the basic element of choice might be exactly what we need in order to feel confident in our sartorial choices again. That’s why the idea of a “capsule wardrobe” is so appealing—if you’re limited to a certain number of decisions, the possibility of feeling disappointed is much less likely. An editor at POPSUGAR was determined to find out why so many high-powered women, like Stella Bugbee, The Cut’s editorial director, and the queen of de-cluttering herself, Maria Kondo, have followed this path of extreme minimalism, and if she, too, could manage to streamline her wardrobe.
