If you’ve recently purchased an Outfit Formulas® Capsule Wardrobe, you may be feeling a little overwhelmed when you see the shopping list. That’s totally normal, and we promise you’ll get the hang of it quickly! Before you start shopping, we want to share three rules we live by around here:
RULE #1: WE ARE CLOSET CURATORS, NOT CAUGHT-UP CONSUMERS!
We don’t buy clothes because we are bored or just because something is on sale. We buy clothes because something fills a gap in our wardrobe, makes us feel confident, and will serve us well. Those magical unicorn pieces are what we call a HECK YES! That leads us to rule #2…
RULE #2: IF IT’S NOT A HECK YES, IT’S A NO!
If you feel just ‘okay’ in something, the material is uncomfortable, or it’s not the most flattering cut- guess what will happen… you’ll rarely wear it and it will be a waste of your money. Nobody wants that! We’re here to help you learn what pieces will serve you best so that you can curate your closet with confidence.
RULE #3: IT TAKES TIME AND PATIENCE TO TRULY CREATE A CLOSET YOU LOVE.
Start with what you already own to assess what you want to keep, toss or donate.
If you find you still have gaps in your wardrobe after shopping your closet, you can review the suggested items on your list and choose what you want to buy first. Remember: you don’t have to buy it all at once to make this program work! Keep in mind the first two rules before you hit the stores.
The Outfit Formulas® Style Guides help you choose the right clothing from your favorite stores with our easy shopping lists, and pair them effortlessly with our daily outfit ideas. You can learn more about how it works and the benefits of building your own capsule wardrobe here.
