There are a few key elements that are important to have during your capsule planning session. The first is choosing style words, which help you to focus on what overall look that you are going for. For Amy, she chose: classic, attractive, and comfortable.
Another element that will make the versatility of your capsule multiply by 100 is choosing a couple of silhouettes that you feel your best in.
Choosing style words and silhouettes may seem a little daunting, but with the guidance of someone who asks the right questions, it becomes an eye-opening process.
Remember! A capsule wardrobe is for a pre-determined amount of time. My personal comfy zone is three months time. Think winter-spring-summer-fall. This allows me to experiment a little more with fashion. Some people may prefer to go six months without changing things up. Some might prefer a year. When I work with clients, we do a three month capsule because it is do-able and not scary.
So, for three months Amy agreed to follow her style words, her silhouettes, and also a color palette.
Her color palette was easy because she already knew exactly what colors brought her joy to wear. These were the colors that she felt comfortable and attractive in. Remember, Amy had a strong sense of personal style and what she liked and did not like to wear.
