3. Invest in Timeless Pieces
Once you’ve decluttered your closet and gotten rid of any fast fashion pieces, it’s time to start thinking about investing in timeless staples that will last for years to come. A well-made pair of jeans, a classic black dress, or a tailored blazer are all great pieces to invest in! Not only will they last longer than cheap alternatives, but they will also look better and feel nicer too. There are so many different variations you can make by mixing and matching timeless articles of clothing that will grow your closet in a mindful way and are also essential for any given occasion. Nueve Los Angeles focuses on exhibiting and curating staple garments that lines up with the philosophy "less is more," combined with sustainability, fair trade and everlasting styles.
4. Stick to a Budget
It can be tempting to overspend when building a capsule wardrobe, but it’s important to stick to a budget. Decide how much money you want to spend on new clothes each month (keeping in mind that it’s ok to spend more if you plan on selling some of your old clothes), and then stick to it! Nueve Los Angeles also has the option to use Afterpay on any purchase, so you can buy now and pay later, helping you manage your finances with installments. There are plenty of ways to build a great wardrobe without spending a fortune – so don’t let sticker shock stop you from creating the closet of your dreams.
A minimal wardrobe doesn’t have to be expensive – In fact, having fewer clothes can actually save you money in the end! Investing in minimalist and staple pieces will always give you a timeless look, giving you true style, and if you choose well, you can make over 100 combinations with only ten articles of clothing rather than overspending on fast fashion trends that cycle out and don't last due to their poor quality. Follow these tips on how to create a capsule wardrobe on a budget: shop your own closet first, shop secondhand stores whenever possible, invest your cash on timeless staples that will last for years instead of following fleeting fashion trends and finally – stick within the bounds of setting a monthly clothing budget! Creating an ethical wardrobe has never been easier – or more affordable.
