How Many Pieces in a Capsule Wardrobe?

One of the questions I’m asked most often about capsule wardrobes is, “How many pieces should be in my capsule?”

The answer depends on your personal style goals and wardrobe objectives.

In this video, I review some of the most popular approaches to building a capsule wardrobe, from Susie Faux’s emphasis on enduring investment pieces to Donna Karan’s “7 Easy Pieces”; from Project 333’s minimalist approach to Un-Fancy’s emphasis on 37 pieces you absolutely love – as well as my own take on getting started with a 10-piece micro capsule wardrobe.

    1. Great feedback. Yes I agree, the unfancy and Project 333 approaches have much in common. One difference I subjectively pick up on is that Project 333 emphasizes the benefits of minimalism most while the slightly larger unfancy closet emphasizes style outcomes more often (i.e defining a style that’s exactly as planned and truly loving everything in your closet), but one could use either approach to achieve each chief outcome.
      I look forward to checking out your blog! Thanks for commenting!


  1. Really love your approach to capsules. I’m currently just trying decide if everything in my closet should actually be in my wardrobe, but I think something like the Unfancy approach may work for me.
    Also, you look fabulous in this jumpsuit! I love that it still has your signature DVF wrap vibe, but with a trouser!
