How to mix your personal style with your capsule wardrobe

How to personalize your college wardrobe

If you've been reading my latest posts about minimalist style, you'll notice that I've talked a lot about living with less, meaning, fewer clothes. The focus in my wardrobe right now is the basics, and how I can use them to create a style that will last, and one that is unique to me and who I am. Having a capsule wardrobe is really convenient because you know exactly what you have which makes waking up in the morning to pick out your clothes that much less of a hassle. It means fewer options and less stress which is perfect for someone who's indecisive like me. When you're capsule wardrobe consists of a few pairs of jeans, t-shirts, tank tops, and shorts, it can be difficult to add in your own style when you don't have a lot of options. Luckily, there are so many ways to enhance your capsule wardrobe so that it is more personalized to your style type!

Here are some tips:

Statement pieces will be the elements of "you" that you want in your wardrobe.

-The best way to put your own twist on your capsule wardrobe is to throw in some statement pieces that really express who you are. It's a great idea to make sure that these statement pieces will go with the different pieces of clothing you have in your capsule wardrobe. A good example of a statement piece would be a printed top. You can wear it in a variety of different ways! You can wear it with denim jeans, shorts, or a skirt in black, blue or white. With just one statement piece and a few basics, you can make so many unique looks! Imagine having a few basic pieces with a few basics? You'd have even more options!

Create your own style identity

Everything in your closet doesn't have to be bland or constantly repeated, you get to add in your own personal touches so you feel that the clothes match your personality or how you want the world to see you.

-Statement jewelry is another thing that you can use in every outfit to make it more personalized. As a jewelry lover, I like to have a few bracelets and necklaces to wear to mix things up in my outfits, but I try to get ones that have a similar style. Try to invest in some signature jewelry and use it with as many outfits as you can! A statement necklace, in particular, is good to have. Try to find one that really screams "you" and wear it whenever you can.

Put your own style twist on your wardrobe

-A transitional bag is great because you can wear it no matter what time of year it is and it will match with basically everything in your closet! Try to buy one in black, grey, white, navy blue, or beige. Also, make sure to get the style and shape that matches your style. Adding in a unique bag will give a personal touch to your wardrobe beyond compare!

Best bags in college

The keys to making your capsule wardrobe more personal are adding in prints, and pops of color, signature jewelry, and handbags that really show off your style!

Overall, it's totally possible to look like "you" and still have a minimalist style. Even though having a capsule wardrobe means having fewer clothes, using these style methods will allow you to enjoy your capsule wardrobe, and still have a style that is unique to who you are.
