These days, I get bogged down with the amount of stuff I have. There are 17 remotes in my living room and only one of them gets used, my husband and I have 28 towels, but there’s only two of us and our closets are exploding with pieces of clothing that neither of us have worn in more than 2 years.
It’s absolute madness.
But, in the midst of all my stuff, I’ve found that a perfect and easy place to begin simplifying my life is in the closet. By creating what is called a capsule wardrobe — a simplified wardrobe with less items — you can clear out all the unnecessary clothing that is cluttering your closet and making getting ready more complicated.
8 Winter Items That Will Make Getting Ready 10 Times Faster:
1. A White Button-Up
White button-ups should be a staple in everyone’s closet. They go with everything, they’re classy and they’re an easy way to make any outfit look put-together.
If you don’t have one, you’re wrong.
2. A Flannel Shirt
Who doesn’t love the look, the feel and the warmth of a good flannel shirt? They are perfect for layering, adding pattern and interest to any outfit and, most importantly, they’re super comfy.
3. A Statement Cardigan
Cardigans are a must for any wardrobe. Not only do they add warmth to your outfit, but they are super cute and easy to pair. And it’s 2016, we aren’t talking about the cardigans Mr. Rogers wore or anything.
4. A Comfy Pullover Sweater
Comfy pullover sweaters are a winter must. Nothing is worse than waking up on a cold winter morning and having to spend an hour getting ready. With a pullover sweater, you literally just have to throw it on and you look good without even trying.
5. A Perfect Pair of Jeans
Finding the right jeans is hard, but once you spend the time searching for the perfect fit, your closet and your butt will thank you.
6. A Warm Coat
7. A Puffy Vest
8. A Great Pair of Boots
Boots and winter are a perfect combination. Boots not only create protection and warmth for your feet, they are statement pieces and give every outfit a little extra flair.
