How To Build A Capsule Wardrobe For Men

Having too many clothes is a common problem. When you look in your wardrobe and see clothes spilling out and in a mess, it can be frustrating and stressful, which is where a smaller, more compact wardrobe collection can come in handy. 

The fact is that having great style - and looking and feeling good - isn’t necessarily about having lots of options, it’s about having a carefully selected range to choose from that makes it easy to feel good. 

By creating a capsule wardrobe, it becomes easier (and less stressful) to put outfits together, which makes looking nice far easier to achieve.

Love the concept of creating a capsule wardrobe? Here’s how to go about building the perfect men’s capsule wardrobe that should stand the test of time. 

Opt for timeless, classic designs 

When selecting clothes for your capsule wardrobe, what you want to do is choose clothes that look great now, and will look great in a few year’s time. When you buy trend-led choices of clothing, they often need to be replaced more quickly because trends change at a rather high velocity. 

Building a game-changing capsule wardrobe should centre around a combination of simple, classic looks. That’s the key to building a capsule wardrobe that will stand the true test of time. 

Choose versatile pieces 

When it comes to shopping for new pieces to add to your wardrobe, use clothing sites like Calibre to choose clothing that’s smart, chic and versatile. You want to pick items that do double duty and can be used to create a range of different looks, from casual day-to-day outfits to smarter, more chic evening looks. 

You want to pick items that can be worn in a variety of ways, such as a jacket that works for meetings but is still casual enough to wear on a date. The key is to select items that have versatility to them and can be styled in a range of ways. 

Add neutral shades 

When it comes to building your capsule wardrobe staple selection, it’s a smart move to make to add neutral shades into the mix. Think: white, black, grey, olive, brown, and khaki. Adding these neutral tones into your capsule collection will make matching outfits far simpler and easier. 

You want to ensure that the core elements of the capsule wardrobe are made up using cool, neutral shades. That way, pairing a range of different looks together, for various events, becomes far simpler and easier to achieve. 

Start simple 

When it comes to what your starter capsule wardrobe needs, it’s best to start simple with a few essentials. Ideally, this should include: a couple of jackets (one more dressy), a few tops (a mixture of t-shirts, polo tops, and shirts), a couple of pairs of trousers, a couple of pairs of shoes (one pair more dressy), and a selection of simple accessories. 

There you have it, a guide to how you can build a fantastic capsule wardrobe for men.
