We talk a lot about the benefits of a Capsule Wardrobe, but there are some particular benefits to building a Capsule Wardrobe for work. We spend a large percentage of our lives at work, and that may have particular meaning for you, maybe it's financial, maybe it's about achieving goals and challenging yourself, maybe you like the social aspect... whatever it is, how you dress will impact how you feel about yourself and how you're perceived by those around you. But, there are other things you value too and most people don't have a lot of time to spend on shopping for clothes. Fashion often compels us to purchase impulsive, trend-based pieces and it's easy to neglect the foundations. When dressing for work, this is particularly problematic as it leaves us with wardrobes full of weekend wear or separates that need to be paired with something more classic to make them appropriate. For those of us who take our work seriously (#boss) a Capsule Work Wardrobe can make a significant difference to everyday life and here's why:

If you purchase the right things you won't spend as much. It's about getting out of that reactive and emotional shopping cycle. By putting just a little thought and planning into your wardrobe you will end up with more options for much less money.
