10-lesson Curriculum

Each lesson takes about 30 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!

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.

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. 

 

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 33 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.  

Who is this course for? 

This course is 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 in your home and need to cut down on non-essentials
  • You make poor and/or impulse shopping decisions and have wasted a lot of money as a result 
  • You travel frequently and need to learn how to pack light 
  • You never know what to wear and pulling together outfits is a source of stress and frustration
  • You've transitioned to a new phase in life (new job, new child, new outlook, etc.) and need your wardrobe to reflect this
  • 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. 

Is this applicable to men? 

Yes, sure is. Because I am a woman I'll use visuals from my own closet as personal examples. However, the capsule wardrobe concept is gender neutral and almost all of the course material can be directly applied to men (I know firsthand because I've used it to revamp my partner's closet). 

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 60 minutes worth of material in the form of videos, slides, images, and downloadable/printable PDF worksheets. 

How long does it take? 

Each lesson will take about 30 minutes to consume all of the content and complete the action items for a total of 5 hours for the entire course. However, how long you decide to take applying the learnings to your closet is completely up to you. 

How long do I have access to the course?

You will pay a one-time fee for lifetime access to this course including any future updates or revisions. 

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.  

Are there any additional fees? 

No, there are no additional fees other than the one-time cost of the course. 

What if I'm not satisfied? 

I offer a 30-day refund guarantee if you work through the course and find that it didn't quite meet your needs (though I'm confident it will)!
