As January has ended and February has begun, we’re getting ready to welcome fresh new colour palettes and prints into our spring wardrobes! An easy way of getting the most value out of your clothing is to introduce the idea of a capsule wardrobe. A capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that all work together to be able to create numerous varied outfits out of just a few key pieces.
