This free printable ultimate capsule wardrobe checklist is exactly what I need to put together a classic and stylish closet full of clothing I love to wear!

I was blown away by your response to last week’s post about building a timeless capsule wardrobe— I’m enjoying all the emails and shares on Facebook, thank you!!! The shift from ‘fast fashion’ to a more classic investment wardrobe has saved so much time and money, and I’m glad you connect with that idea as well. Something I’ve been asked to create time and time again is a printable clothing inventory to help declutter, organize, and optimize your wardrobe. We’ve been working hard behind the scenes on this, and I’m so happy to offer you the free printable capsule wardrobe checklist today!

Obviously take the suggestions with a grain of salt because it will vary according to your climate, activity level, and lifestyle. I’m a work-at-home mom who works out 3-4 times a week, so that skewed it a bit towards casual, comfy-yet-stylish clothing that I can dress up or down as needed. Someone who works in an office will need more suits, whereas teachers trend towards more of a ‘business casual’ wardrobe. If you work out 6 times a week, up the ante on the workout gear, and if you live in Florida you can probably skip the winter boots.

Of course, if you invest in your clothes you want them to last. A few items I’ve found super helpful in keeping my clothing in great shape are slim velvet hangers, mesh laundry bags for the gentle cycle, and a sweater shaver de-fuzzer that is my new favorite toy. Those inexpensive items were worth it to keep my clothing looking new.

How to Use the Ultimate Capsule Wardrobe Checklist

Step One:

Begin with a massive closet cleanout. Take out every. single. thing, clean the shelves and vacuum. Now, unless you are wearing it weekly which gives it a free pass, try on everything. Make two piles, keep and donate. Donate anything that you don’t love, that doesn’t fit or make you feel good, or brings up negative feelings. Chances are you aren’t reaching for those pieces anyways, why have them cluttering your closet?

Step Two:

Print out the capsule wardrobe checklist. As you put the pieces back into your closet, take an inventory of what you already have by checking them off the list.

Step Three:

The unchecked boxes give you a blueprint of what you need. Start by adding in seasonally appropriate items (ie, spring is coming so you can probably wait to get those winter boots.) Be wary of getting things just because they’re on sale. Yes, this is a good strategy to save money but often we’re tempted by pricing rather than our love for the item and end up convincing ourselves that we like it rather than actually needing it. Remember, one pair of great shoes you love is better than 3 pairs that pinch your toes!

Step Four:

Continue to evaluate and build seasonally. If you’re anything like me, you will soon be able to walk into your closet and immediately grab a few things that stick out like a sore thumb because they don’t fit with the others– donate those! Soon, your closet will be infused with only the pieces you love, and you can mix and match to your heart’s content.
