Capsule Wardrobe for Beginners: Core Collection

Here’s a quick how-to for building a custom capsule wardrobe from just a few basics. If you’ve considered creating your own capsule wardrobe or need a refresher, this is a great resource for getting started! Let’s go!

core collection

When putting together a seasonal capsule wardrobe, you should always start with a core collection. This core collection could be the same every season or you can update it according to the weather or your current lifestyle. For this example, we’ll keep fall and winter in mind as well as the idea of keeping things casual since most of us are spending the majority of our time at home!

Your core collection is unique! Here’s how you find it: quickly pull your 3 most worn or very favorite pieces in your wardrobe right now. Then add 2 more practical items that coordinate with the first 3. Now you have 5 pieces total. That’s your core collection; the base to build your capsule wardrobe from.

Again, this is a unique collection for everyone, but we’ll use some of our favorite core styles from the shop to build an example capsule with!

  1. Dark skinny jeans
  2. White crew neck tee
  3. Cotton pullover sweater
  4. Distressed denim overalls
  5. Leopard print cardigan

Real quick, imagine all the outfits that can be styled out of just these five pieces…

  1. Jeans + tee
  2. Jeans + tee + cardigan
  3. Jeans + sweater
  4. Overalls + tee
  5. Overalls + tee + cardigan 
  6. Overalls + sweater

These are basic outfits that you can spice up by simply switching out shoes and accessories! And by adding just a few more pieces to this mix, you get an even more versatile collection.

As you continue building your seasonal fall capsule wardrobe, stay true to your style, but have some fun with it! If your core collection is really neutral, add a couple of accent colors or maybe try a more monochromatic pallet, but mix things up with prints and textures.

building from your core collection

Continue to build your capsule wardrobe by adding 2 or 3 pieces at a time to your core collection. Think about how each new piece will pair back with the original items.

For example, a couple more items that could be added to this group for building a comfortable and casual collection are:

  1. Striped sleeve sweatshirt
  2. Black distressed skinny jeans

And with just those two pieces, the following outfits can be made:

  1. Jeans + sweatshirt
  2. Overalls + sweatshirt
  3. Black jeans + tee
  4. Black jeans + tee + cardigan
  5. Black jeans + sweater
  6. Black jeans + sweatshirt

We’re already at 12 outfits total with just 7 pieces of clothing! Now, we’d never ask you to have a 7 piece wardrobe but the idea is to get creative with styles that you love, are comfortable to wear and reflect your personal style. You don’t have to have a huge wardrobe to have a unique sense of style, but you do need to know what your style is and have some great quality pieces to build your wardrobe with from season to season.

There’s no specific stopping point when it comes to building your custom capsule wardrobe. This process should come to an end organically and more often than not, once you’re done working through your wardrobe, you’ll have pieces you realize you no longer need as well as a list of items you’d like to buy and add to your closet.

We hope this post is an inspiring starting point for you, but if you’d like help customizing your capsule wardrobe, we’d absolutely love to!

The matrix measure I slogan Gail Dines speak, at a colloquy in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her statement of the problems caused next to dirt, and provoked laughter with her intelligent observations roughly pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the event – sundry of whom had on no account viewed smut as a disturbed in advance of – queued up afterwards to pledge their support. The mise en scene highlighted Dines’s iffy charisma and the deed data that, since the undoing of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most sensitive and interesting of mr roles: the world’s foremost anti-pornography campaigner.

歷史
六七千年前的先民就開始釣魚。周文王曾和兒子們在靈沼釣魚取樂。戰國時范蠡也愛釣魚,常把所釣之魚供給越王勾踐食用。 二十世紀八十年代,中國大陸的各級釣魚協會成立,釣魚地點也從自然水域向養殖水域過度,所釣之魚則從粗養向細養過度。人數增多、水體污染及濫捕濫撈導致釣魚難度上升。釣魚協會開始與漁民和農民簽訂文件,使更多釣者能夠在養殖水域釣魚,達到了雙贏的目的。 二十世紀九十年代初,來自台灣的懸釣法走紅大陸,各地開始建造標準釣池。 二十世紀末,發達國家的釣者提倡回顧自然,引發新一輪野釣戰,而中國的釣者則更青睞精養魚池。1

钓竿一般由玻璃纖維或碳纖維轻而有力的竿状物质製成,钓竿和鱼饵用丝线联接。一般的鱼饵可以是蚯蚓、米饭、蝦子、菜叶、苍蝇、蛆等,现代有专门制作好(多数由自己配置的半成品)的粉製鱼饵出售。鱼饵挂在鱼鉤上,不同的對象鱼有不同的釣組配置。在周围水面撒一些誘餌通常会有較好的集魚效果。

识鱼
鱼类的视力不如人类,距离、宽度均无法和人类的视力比较,鱼类对水色、绿色比较敏感,鱼类的嗅觉非常灵敏,鱼类的听觉也非常灵敏,钓鲤鱼时,不能在岸上大声谈笑、走动不停,鱼类的思考能力非常弱,鱼类应对周边环境随着气象、水温、水色、潮流、流速、水量的变化而变化,于是便出现了在同一个池塘、水库、湖泊,往日钓鱼收获大,今日少,上午收获大,下午少,晴天大,雨天少等情况。2:114-117淡水钓鱼,中国大陆经常垂钓的鱼类对象是本地鲫鱼、日本鲫、非洲鲫、鲤鱼、游鱼、罗非鱼、黄刺鱼(黄鸭叫)、黄尾、鳊鱼、青鱼、草鱼、鲢鱼、鳙鱼,台湾经常垂钓的鱼类对象是本地鲫鱼、日本鲫、吴郭鱼(罗非鱼)、溪哥仔和红猫(粗首马口鱲)、斗鱼、罗汉鱼、苦花、三角姑(河鮠)、竹蒿头(密鱼)。2:117
