Hi there, Emma the designer and owner of Woodward here.
Firstly, thank you so much for popping on to the blog today.
I wanted to start this series as I love styling and fashion, I miss not working with customers to create their own personal style and wanted to make sure that whoever follows me and reads my blogs gets real value from it.
Let's inspire you to create your own!
So here we go - What is a capsule wardrobe? Its when you have a range clothing that all fits together to make various outfits, think about what you take in your suitcase for travel and apply that to everyday life. The capsule concept also ties into the slow fashion movement, meaning less and more sustainable shopping and a eco friendly approach to clothing.
A 'capsule wardrobe' is something that I hear a lot about, and also something I believe most of us inspire to have. Don't we all want to just wake and go yes! that's my outfit for today I feel confident and I look great, life is good!
But where do you start? What do you need to start? What about my colours and the rules of fashion - is it too overwhelming?
Throughout my weekly series I am going to talk through my ideas of how to achieve this.
- The basics - what do you need?
- How to choose what is still working for you in your current wardrobe.
- Colours, personal stylists how do you choose one and do I really need one?
- Putting the puzzle together.
- You have the plan now let's take it up to the next level with accessories.
I would love to hear your thoughts and questions. Follow along on my Facebook page as I will be doing live videos chatting through the different topics.
Here's a quick introduction video I did recently
