I’ve heard from a bunch of my capsule friends in this Facebook group and on Instagram that even with the smaller number of clothing in their closets they still mostly wear the same few pieces over and over again.

I know that’s certainly true for me!

If you follow my weekly outfit roundups then you know that I pretty much wear a pair of (thrifted) converse every day. They just really work for my lifestyle and I like the way they look!

When I first started noticing that I wasn’t wearing all of the clothing in my wardrobe equally, it kind of bothered me.

But then I realized: I have a capsule within a capsule.

What do I mean by that?

Even with the smaller amount of clothing in my closet, I still have fringe pieces that don’t get as much mileage as others.

But I’m not willing to get rid of them and pare things down even more.

Why?

Because I may not wear them as much, but they are invaluable to have when the occasion comes up where I DO need them.

Some of my fringe items are:

my blazer
my black dress
my heeled boots

Some of my core clothing items are:

my basic tees
my skinny denim
my converse
my black booties

It made me realize that building a capsule should be done with a formula that accounts for this. First build up your core items and then start adding the fringe items until you have a complete capsule that accounts for pretty much any situation.

Easy right?

What are your fringe and core items? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,

Signature

    Ahh-since I have my first ever “everyday capsule”, it does get complicated. What to choose🤔. My fringe is: black jumpsuit, navy dresses (3), jcrew pointy toe suede flats, Sorel cage booties. Basics are: striped tops, blue jeans tops, blue jean jacket, 1 pair Levi’s, (new) Michael Star ribbed Tee, old Clark clogs, 2 blazers (1 black, 1 pin striped). Not sure if this is catagorized properly??
