Capsule Wardrobe - Downsizing the Wardrobe or Building One's Style


Style Me Pretty

My Scandinavian home


Maybe you've just heard about it or maybe you have already transformed your wardrobe.

What has not lost its momentum after a couple of years in the trend is the capsule wardrobe. What does capsule wardrobe mean? It means carefully curated and cultivated wardrobe where pieces work harmoniously with each other so you no longer need to fall into a consumeristic fit and buy the next random piece of clothing.

To me it sounds more of building one's own style. 

The concept of the capsule wardrobe focuses on selecting a certain number of pieces (the number 37 seems to be popular with capsule wardrobe enthusiasts) that are in your preferred style, colors, prints and textures, accompanied with the right accessories and shoes.

The formula goes like this:



Choose the basics in the colors that you love wearing and that would fit greatly with the other items you select.

To add interest you need items that would be textured or printed and pair perfectly with the chosen basics.

Lastly, choose the footwear and accessories that match your capsule wardrobe.

Below are a couple of color palettes and boards showing mixed & matched items to give you a spark of the idea how to capsule your wardrobe.






Anzelika's Art



In the art world, Anzelika Koleva is known for her unconventional way of creating art - by spreading colors, finger painting and using spatulas to shape images.


She has replaced brushes with her fingertips and uses them solely to mix colors. The finger painting technique and painting by letting colors spread is not easy as one can imagine, but she has mastered them both thus making her art immediately recognizable.


The woman, being the everlasting inspiration is the main motif in her paintings. She uses the image of the woman as a drive fueled by the stories and emotions shared by her friends, sisters and mothers which she captures and translates into her paintings.




What she is also recognized by is her vinyl art. She uses old, damaged vinyl records to revive and beautify them and create one of a kind stories. Read about her amazing vinyl collection here and buy her art here.
