How to Build a Mini Capsule Wardrobe?

A mini capsule wardrobe is great for people who like to own less and for travelers who want to pack lightly. Building a mini capsule wardrobe is not difficult when you know the tricks and how-tos. 

Here are the ways to create a mini capsule wardrobe:

Occasions and needs

Write the activities and your needs at the current time. For example, you may create a mini capsule wardrobe to travel to a country for specific events, like work conferences or for a beach vacation. 

You would need different items for those two different events. However, if you are a minimalist who likes to have fewer clothes, consider your daily activities and what tasks you do on a daily basis. 

For example, if you are going to college, you are pregnant, or if it is for a mini seasonal capsule wardrobe
