If you’ve followed this blog for any amount of time, you know that I live my life by capsule wardrobes. I’ve tried every capsule wardrobe planner I’ve come across and spent hours scrolling Pinterest, slowly developing my own system for planning my own capsule wardrobe.
I am a planner and like to feel prepared for anything. It’s also really important to me to feel like I am appropriately dressed for any situation I’m walking into. But on top of all of this, I am a minimalist and get overwhelmed when I have too many options. Out of necessity, I created this system to help me plan and organize my clothes to live up to all of these criteria. There are tons of wardrobe planners out there, but this is how mine is different:
-it’s designed for people who live with extreme weather
-it acknowledges that not all seasons are equal and you might need many more clothes for one season than another
-it takes into account outerwear and athletic wear
-it strives to achieve the exact right balance of having a minimalist wardrobe but still feeling ready to look amazing in any scenario
I call it the Canadian Capsule Planner, because we in the Great White North deal with some pretty big temperature swings, but this planner will work for anyone in any climate. While there are a lot of resources for sewists, this planner is absolutely useful if you buy all of your clothes. The planner includes a bit of reading, some examples and printable PDFs to plan your year in clothes, your seasonal capsules and organize your must-make lists. Happy planning!
