This is a very important step. You need to create space in your existing wardrobe You can treat t. his as a blank canvas or upcycling project,. Whatever feels right! Look through your existing pieces and toss anything you don't "feel" for anymore. Be really strict, no "maybes" or "when I lose weight". You need to look what works for you right now and what you love. Not one or the other, both need to be applied to the item. This is a very important step in creating a wardrobe you will love for years to come.
Pick Your Colour Palette
If you work in the office, you probably best to go with grey, navy or black as your primary colour. You don't have to, but since its autumn/winter, it is probably most appealing and some pieces would work during other seasons. You can still inject some colour with accessories and tops. So don't worry to be looking dark or boring! This is not the idea of the capsule wardrobe at all, however, we need to be practical and it needs to more or less work for all seasons, well at least the core pieces. I have illustrated below how the autumn/winter capsule wardrobe might look like with core and minimal colour. It does not look boring to me!
Evaluate What You are Left With

Shop for What You Need
Take your time shopping and picking out pieces you think you might need. Treat it as a game and enjoy the experience of looking for those perfect items! There is no ideal number, but you should aim for about 20 items excluding shoes and bags.
