And now we can talk about planning for the next season. For me, a new capsule season will start on September 1st. I will start adding fall clothes as I need them, while continuing to use my current summer wardrobe. Where I live, September always has a wide variety of temperatures and weather conditions, so a gradual wardrobe change works best for me.
I will phase out my summer clothes around October 1st and wear my fall capsule wardrobe through the end of November. I expect to choose around 40 items, since that has been working really well for me. I will buy a few new things. Most of my clothes will come out of boxes, saved from years past.
Today I got out my sweaters and started to sort through what I still like and what I want to donate. There are a few things that I don't really like and a few that didn't work the way I wanted them to (one sweater looks great but is kind of scratchy and feels very acrylic. Another is lovely, but it always sheds on anything it touches, including the rest of my outfit). I plan to replace those with new pieces, searching for things that I love and that will work just right.
I'll keep sorting over the weekend, referencing the outfit examples that I've shared over the past few days. I'll see if I can make similar-enough outfits from what I already have, and narrow down what I'd like to buy new this season.
I hope your planning is going well. If you're posting about your next wardrobe, leave me a link in the comments! I'd love to see it.
