How to Create a Capsule Wardrobe for Children


Do you spend all your money on kids’ clothes just to feel like your little ones never have the right things to wear? If your answer is yes, then you must be also losing lots of time on shopping sprees, seasonal switch-outs and doing laundry.

With so much emphasis on how adults should organize their clothes nowadays, why is nobody talking about how children’s wardrobes can be also simplified?

How to Create a Capsule Wardrobe for Children

That’s what we are here to discuss today so you have arrived in the exact right place!

Being mindful about what we get for our kids will result in less time shopping, organising, and tidying up. Not to mention that buying high end baby clothes that are better quality also reduces waste and clutter.

Does the notion of “capsule wardrobe” ring a bell?

Dating back to 1970, capsule wardrobe was first used by Susie Faux, to describe a collection of clothing that is composed of interchangeable items, meant to maximise the number of outfits that can be created. Although a term mostly used in relation to adults’ wardrobes, when it comes to kids things are not very much different. Their wardrobes should be based on function and flexibility too.

What Are The Benefits Of Creating A Kids Capsule Wardrobe?

  • Getting your kids dressed is super easy
  • Less consumption
  • Less storage space required
  • Reduced wardrobe maintenance
  • Less money spent

How To Build a Capsule Wardrobe

Capsule wardrobes should be built on a maximum of 30 clothes that are good quality and which fit your little ones well. If you are ready to start chucking out everything that is too small, overwarn, or never been worn, the following kids capsule wardrobe tips will help you decide what to keep and what to throw:

1. Make A List

Putting everything on paper when throwing out, doing shopping or seasonal sorting can help you stay focused and reasonable. Keep a promise to yourself to stick to your decision and not buy anything that is not already on the list.

2. Only Invest In Good Quality Clothes

Fast fashion is not only bad for us, but also bad for the environment. Your kids don’t need to have tons of low quality stuff just to be dressed up as the latest fashion trends. With kids, as with adults, their clothes should fit them well, be comfortable and made out of good quality materials. Unlike budget fashion, high quality classic children’s clothing are made ethically, stand up the test of time and can even be passed onto future generations.

3. Get Rid Of All The Extra

Children grow out of their clothes so fast that sometimes they don’t even have time to wear all the items we buy for them.

Here’s a checklist of what they actually need:

  • 10 t-shirts
  • 2-3 pairs of jeans
  • 2-3 pairs of shorts
  • 2 swimsuits
  • 2 casual dresses and 1 special occasion dress (for girls)
  • 1 piece of boys’ formal wear
  • 3 pairs of sneakers, 3 pairs of slip on shoes and 2 pairs of boots
  • Underwear
  • 2 winter coats
  • 3 sweaters
