Planning Accessories For Your Travel Capsule Wardrobe
With travelling light on so many people’s agendas it makes so much sense to practice the art of creating a capsule wardrobe. The benefits are huge and can make packing and finding outfits whilst on holiday an absolute breeze.
What Is A Capsule Wardrobe?
A capsule wardrobe is basically one it sounds like, a small segment of your wardrobe which has been stripped down to the basics having only 1 or, a very limited number of the same garment. A capsule wardrobe should have a number of coordinated outfits which are interchangeable and a big emphasis on no wasted space, so nothing you won’t wear whilst away.
Why Do I Need One?
You don’t have to create a capsule wardrobe for travelling, but if you do the benefits will really pay off whilst you are away. Capsule wardrobes are great if you aren’t the most organized or struggle when it comes to planning outfits and packing clothes for your holidays.
If this takes your fancy then a capsule wardrobe will be perfect for the next time you are travelling because of the minimal nature means you can easily fit a whole capsule wardrobe in a small suitcase, and possibly even a carry-on bag if you aren’t travelling for a long period of time, which means more financial savings to spend on a great time whilst you are away!
The added bonus is you won’t be spending much time choosing your outfits before you head out to explore for the day, as you selected your outfits whilst packing. There is a slight drawback here, and that is if you plan your outfits based on the weather, and there’s a change you could be caught in a rainstorm with no protection. If this is a concern, when piecing yours together include a waterproof layer for peace of mind.
