How to Make a Capsule Wardrobe

We’ve all dreamed of having a wardrobe like Carrie Bradshaw from Sex in the City. Sadly, the reality of owning (or renting) an apartment with a wardrobe like that will set you back thousands.

If you are struggling to make space for your clothes in your apartment, a capsule wardrobe might be the best solution for you! At Store That, London Docklands, we understand how important space can be, especially in a small London apartment! We’ve rounded up our top tips to create a capsule wardrobe so you can look stylish in the city, without losing space at home.


Cleanse your wardrobe

The first step to curate your capsule wardrobe is to purge your wardrobe of old clothes that no longer fit, you no longer like or just generally have no use for anymore. The best way to give your wardrobe a style overhaul is to match it to your lifestyle. While you might be heel obsessive, does it make sense to have a wardrobe full of fancy dresses and shoes if you work from home most of the time?

For those items you can’t bear to throw away, why not store them in a secure self-storage facility like Store That? That way, you can store away much loved and seasonal pieces without compromising on wardrobe space.


Fill gaps in your wardrobe

Before you hit the shops to stock up, make a list of things your basic wardrobe needs to stop you frivolously taking out your purse when you see something you don’t have (but also don’t need!).


Choose go-to brands

Capsule wardrobes are great for creating a minimal wardrobe that includes timeless pieces that you can recycle to create different looks.  Remember, quality is more important than quantity, so selecting the right go-to brands is vital to keep your wardrobe on track.

Steer clear of retailers that sell cheap, throwaway fashion and go for brands that have better quality materials. While this might be a bit pricier, it’ll mean having a high-quality wardrobe with pieces you’ll want to wear time and time again.

Of course, there will always be the shoes, bag or coat you can’t bear to part with. Rather than throwing them away, put them into a London self-storage unit. Our units have round the clock security to ensure your items are fully protected. For more information, contact our team today on 0207 5151 300.
