How To Create A Sustainable Workwear Capsule

Did you know that people generally only wear 25 percent of their closet?

Think about it... what clothes do you actually wear in your closet?

We can easily cut down on clothing excess and textile waste by building a workwear capsule. To clarify, I’m not an advocate of capsules for all clothing; I think it’s important to have freedom and flexibility for night and weekend wear. I need space in my life to wear my rainbow-colored romper, okay? I like to use that free time to express my pure individuality and creativity.

But, a space where we can easily create a capsule is in our professional attire.



Workwear Capsule Checklist


There are five main reasons why a workwear capsule is a great solution:

  1. We make thousands of decisions a day. Stop wasting precious brain power on what to wear by building a set wardrobe that you can rely on.

  2. A capsule can free you from the daily anxiety of “does this match?” “can they see my panty lines?” “Is this too tight?”

  3. You’ll start to be more productive and feel better at work because you know you look good and are dressed perfectly for any meeting that may arise.

  4. Because a capsule frees you from anxiety, it helps you become more confident.

  5. Takes less time to get ready in the morning, so you can get more sleep!

The psychology of clothing is a real science, so it’s important to dress for the job you want, not the job you have. After your capsule is created, you’ll start to embody a certain office persona and exude ease and confidence. My goal is to lead projects with the elegance and sophistication of Amal Clooney. Think about it - who’s your workplace role model?


Although I encourage that you put your money into tailored clothing you’ll be wearing every day, a solid workwear collection doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated to figure out. Amal may have millions of dollars to spend on clothing, but I sure don’t. Nevertheless, I want to look put together!
