What is a capsule wardrobe?
Creating a capsule wardrobe is about having a finite number of clothing items per season that you absolutely love. Though it takes some pairing down (most capsule wardrobes include only a few dozen clothing items), it's really about gaining freedom, flexibility, and quality of life.
By clearing out the closet clutter and only keeping high-quality, well-fitting, interchangeable clothes you love, many women have found been converted by the capsule wardrobe lifestyle. The capsule concept is popular among ladies who are tired of "too many clothes and nothing to wear" or who want to be more responsible consumers. Capsule wardrobes are also frequently used by long-term travelers, since living out of a suitcase is the epitome of a set wardrobe.

Featured on The Oprah Magazine and The Today Show website, Courtney Carver is one of the first female bloggers to bring this trend to the masses with her Project 333.
Cladwell Guide is another great online resource and app for those who want to "live a bigger life with a smaller wardrobe."
