Today I’m back with the third installment of my perfect capsule wardrobe series and we’re talking uniforms!
T-Shirt, Denim, Converse.
When it comes to figuring out your personal style and creating a capsule wardrobe that works for you, figuring out your uniform is a pretty important step.
I don’t know about you, but when I first heard this term, my thoughts immediately went to Mark Zuckerberg.
But I’m not advocating anything that extreme (although if that works for you, then more power to you!).
Instead, I like to think of it as more of a helpful guideline for building my capsules.
In other words, it’s my way of keeping myself in check so that I only include items I’ll actually wear.
But here’s the catch: it’s not that easy to figure out what your uniform is.
It took me four capsules to figure it out.
Four capsules to formulate these questions and then find answers to them:
- What is my lifestyle?
- What do I reach for most in my closet?
- What do I feel most confident in?
Those may seem like super simple questions, but they can be difficult to answer.
I don’t know about you, but I tend to think of myself as living in this glamorous alternate reality.
But once I got real with myself and was able to answer those questions honestly, I came up with my uniform and you know what?
This spring capsule, which includes various forms of my uniform, has felt the most “right” of any of my previous capsules.
What about you? Do you know what your uniform is? Let me know in the comments below!
Hoodie: Old Forever 21. Similar ethical option.
Tee: Thrifted. Similar ethical option.
Denim: Old Gap. Similar ethical option.
Straw Fedora: Old Gap. Similar ethical option.
Until next time,
