- Shoes: 19 pairs (no change since last check-in)
- Business and Special Occasion Capsule: 14 items
- Beach/Swim Capsule: 8 items (no change since last check-in)
- Lounge/Sleep Capsule: 12 items (no change since last check-in)
- Spring/Summer Wardrobe: 48 items
- Fall/Winter Wardrobe: 69 items
Crunching the numbers
My current wardrobe total is 170 items. To use 80% of this wardrobe only 34 item should sit unworn. However, this is across seasons.
Taking a closer look at the fall/winter season, I have 69 fall/winter wardrobe items and 4 pairs of boots for a total of 73 items. This means that only 15 items can sit unworn for the entire season.
Taking a closer look at the current season, which is spring/summer in my area, I have 48 items and 10 pairs of footwear for a total of 58 items. This means that only 12 items can sit unworn for the entire season.
However, to make this slightly more complicated, I have 22 items (Business and Special Occasion Capsule and Beach/Swim Capsule items) that sit unworn for most of the year. Out of 170 items, these 22 items make up 12.9% already! That leaves me with only 12 items that should sit unworn between both my fall/winter AND spring/summer wardrobes or 6 items each.
With the Fall/Winter season over, it’s time to see what the 6 unworn items were from this wardrobe. I’ll cover that in my next post along with why these items went unworn yet I am still keeping them.
Do you know how many items are in your wardrobe?
