Only great minds can afford a simple style – Stendhal

You are smart and successful (or aspiring to be), so why are stressing about what to wear everyday? It's because that closet full of clothes you've spent thousands of dollars on actually makes you feel less confident. 

So it's time to use that great mind and simplify your getting ready routine. 

This course will show you the exact steps to curating a beautiful and practical closet so you can devote your resources (time, money, energy) to more pressing matters.

Instead of worrying about what to wear everyday you'll be able to swiftly pull together classic, stylish looks.

If you're up for the challenge I'll walk you through the 10-step process I used to create my own capsule wardrobe — and an easy, effortless style.

10-lesson Curriculum

Each lesson takes about 30-60 minutes to work through and includes a comprehensive set of content (videos, slides, images, and worksheets) to help you apply the tips and tricks to your own closet.  

1. Intro 

So what exactly is a capsule wardrobe? I'll provide an in-depth review of this growing trend and discuss why it is the most efficient way to build your signature style and dream closet.  

2. Lifestyle 

If you have a lot of stuff in your closet that seems completely off from your actual lifestyle you aren't alone. We'll tackle the challenge of mapping your wardrobe to the reality of your day-to-day. 

3. Aesthetic 

Struggling to understand and develop your personal style? This lesson will help you get in touch with your own aesthetic so every single item of clothing you buy going forward is a piece you'll absolutely love. 

4. Evaluation 

Now that the fundamentals are covered we need to get our hands dirty. In this lesson I'll show you how to evaluate what stays in your closet vs. what goes as well as what you'll need to buy for your capsule. 

5. Checklist

After the evaluation you'll need to develop a capsule wardrobe checklist. It's not just a shopping list but a seasonal guide of must-have staples that you should always have in your closet. 

6. Budget

Before you rush off to shop, there are a few more things to address. One critical part of this course is making sure you stay within your financial means. The budgeting lesson will ensure you don't go broke. 

7. Brands

I am a strong advocate of having a go-to set of brands that you can depend on for your capsule wardrobe. This lesson will discuss how to discover those brands and provide recommendations on where to start. 

8. Shop

Ok now it's time to shop! However, there is a process I want to teach you to ensure: (a) you aren't overwhelmed and (b) you don't fall victim to impulse purchases. This lesson will make shopping extremely efficient. 

9. Care

The fewer items you have the better they should be. In this lesson we'll discuss how to assess your purchases for quality and how to care for these pieces to extend their longevity. 

10. Conclusion 

We'll close out the course by discussing how you can stay committed to your newly created capsule over time. After all this work we wouldn't want you to revert back to a closet full of stuff you don't need! 

 
 

This course is specifically designed to help you build a closet of essentials that complement your style and life. The result? Completely eliminating the daily "what to wear" dilemma.

INCREASE CONFIDENCE

You will establish a stronger sense of style and self after this course. The process will be about developing self-awareness and a keen sense of quality – not about keeping up with the latest fashion trends or being a walking billboard for luxury logos. By understanding the wardrobe staples that work for your body type, lifestyle, and aesthetic preferences, you'll boost your confidence and feel more secure in what you decide to wear each day. No more wearing things that make you feel less than.

SPEND WISELY

From assessing fabric quality to better determining fit, you will learn how to maximize the value of every dollar you spend on your clothes. Moreover (and contrary to what you may have heard) your capsule wardrobe will not be created with a set number of items in mind. Instead, the goal will be to identify the fundamental elements of your wardrobe and then align your needs with your financial resources. You'll no longer waste thousands of dollars on things you don't absolutely love and need. 

 

SAVE TIME

The daily "what to wear" drama is about to come to an end. Standing in front of your closet like a deer in head lights will be a thing of the past. With the right colors and silhouettes you'll be able to close your eyes, pick 2-3 pieces, and blindly create an outfit that looks great. I'm not exaggerating (I do this sometimes). The items in your capsule wardrobe will work seamlessly with one another making getting ready an enjoyable and time-efficient process.

I'm an ex-fashion marketing executive turned lifestyle blogger and creative strategist. I've worked for and partnered with dozens of iconic and emerging fashion brands such as Ralph Lauren, Burberry, Skagen, and Gilt. I've built a community of over 75,000 simple living and minimalist style enthusiasts and my work has been featured in publications such as Fast Company, Apartment Therapy, and GQ. 

Most importantly, I actually went through the process of creating a capsule wardrobe a few years ago. At that point minimalism in style wasn't a trend and there were virtually no reputable resources to rely on so I developed my own plan. After receiving several emails from my readers on how I built my closet I decided to share my process via this affordable course. 

This course draws on my personal and professional style and design experience to offer an intuitive, no-drama method for building the wardrobe of your dreams. You don't have to be a fashionista (or fashionisto) to dress well and feel confident in your look every single day.

Course FAQs

 

What is a capsule wardrobe? 

First, it is not about only owning 20 items or putting other unnecessary restrictions on yourself.

It's about curating a well-thought out closet made up of intentional purchases of essential items that compliment your shape, aesthetic, and lifestyle.

A capsule wardrobe prioritizes quality over quantity and helps you create multiple outfits from staples pieces that you absolutely love owning.  

A part of the course will be dedicated to educating you more about this concept (if you need more context). 

HOW IS THIS COURSE DIFFERENT? 

The idea for this course actually came about from frequent emails from readers asking me to enhance my minimalist style posts with more ideas for practical application. So I became aware that there was a need I could potentially help solve. 

To my knowledge (and I searched extensively and explored many resources) there are no other capsule wardrobe resources as comprehensive, hands-on, well-structured, and clearly communicated as what you will find in this course. I'm also confident that the e-course format is a more thorough method of solidifying the process than just a book or worksheet.     

Moreover, my goal is not just to show you a bunch of cute outfits so you can purchase them through my affiliate links. It is also not to indoctrinate you and conform you to my personal aesthetic. Having a minimalist style doesn't mean adopting my taste or color palette but finding your own. 

My life was significantly changed when I figured out how to simplify my style and I aim to show you how you can change your life using this method as well. 

That said, there are some incredible minimalist fashion blogs, websites, and books available these days (way more than when I started my style journey). There's no reason why you can't round out your repertoire by exploring and pulling great information from more than one! 

Who is this course for? 

This course is especially useful for anyone who has transitioned to a new phase in life (new job, new child, new city, new outlook, etc.) and need your wardrobe to reflect this. It can be very difficult aligning your style with your lifestyle and this course will offer tips and solutions that help you with this. 

This course is also perfect for you if any of the following apply: 

  • You want the items in your wardrobe to be beautiful and practical
  • You aren't into "fashion" but want to look stylish and polished
  • You don't have a lot of time to spend getting ready
  • You're lacking space and need to cut down on non-essentials
  • You make impulse shopping decisions and have wasted a lot of money 
  • You travel frequently and need to learn how to pack light 
  • You never know what to wear and getting ready is stressful 
  • You're curious about the capsule wardrobe concept but change is hard and you need more than a generic ebook or checklist to guide you

What if I'm not into fashion? 

This course is not about keeping up with fashion trends but establishing a keen sense of personal style and building a wardrobe of fewer but better pieces that work for you. 

What if I'm not a minimalist? 

The capsule wardrobe concept draws on principles of minimalism in terms of it being a tool to do more with less. However, this doesn't mean you have to adopt a minimal aesthetic. No matter if your style is bohemian or eclectic, if you believe you could benefit from creating a core collection of staples that make it easier to get ready each day, this course is for you. 

What format is the course delivered in?

You will be provided with a website link where you can access all the course materials easily. Content is easily viewable no matter the device you are on. Each lesson will include about 30-60 minutes worth of material in the form of video, audio, slides, images, and printable PDF worksheets. 

How long does it take? 

Each lesson will take about 30-60 minutes to consume all of the content and complete the action items. However, how long you decide to take applying the learnings to your closet is completely up to you. 

Do I have to buy more clothes? 

It depends, though shopping is not the main focus of the course and the whole purpose is getting to a place where you only buy what you absolutely need. You don't need more clothes but the right clothes. During the course you will spend time evaluating what you already have and then determining if you need to giveaway some items that aren't being worn to make room for more useful essentials.  

What if I'm not satisfied? 

Well the course is completely free but if there are issues with your experience or questions about the content just contact me and we will promptly sort it out!
