So we put together a men’s capsule wardrobe based on a bunch of requests. Both men and women people struggle to find clothes that are both functional and fashionable. One of the perks of a capsule wardrobe is that it’s easy and affordable. No longer are you buying pieces that don’t mix and match with the rest of your closet. Even though you may spend a bit more per item your cost per wear will make a capsule more affordable. For the women in your life be sure to check out all our capsule wardrobe outfit ideas.
Men’s Capsule Wardrobe
This capsule wardrobe is is a starting point for Men’s style. It doesn’t include formal and athletic wear but it does show how with just 14 pieces including shoes and belts you can cover most of your everyday clothing needs. Since these pieces are the building blocks of a capsule wardrobe ideally you invest in items of better quality, if you want them to last longer. Having a great pair of jeans and basic pants go a long way towards an easy everyday style. You are streamlining the number of items you own while trying to maximize the function and outfit options. These outfits would also be great for travel since you can easily fit all these items in a small carry-on bag!
