If you’re a capsule wardrobe wearer like me than you might be curious about some ways to extend the life of your capsule wardrobe. After a few years of using the capsule wardrobe method here are four ways to extend the life of your capsule wardrobe!
Here are 4 Ways to Extend the Life of Your Capsule Wardrobe:
Wear a NUMI Undershirt
One way to wear your capsule year round is to add a Numi Undershirt! The undershirts are made with tencel which regulates your body temperature. This is super helpful during the summer months when the weather is warmer.
Your Numi undershirt will also extend the life of your capsule wardrobe! And who wouldn’t want their favourite pieces to last longer. The Numi Undershirt’s Sweat-Secret Technology on the underarm absorbs your sweat before it can touch your clothing and ruin it.
Basically your Numi undershirt helps prevent sweat stains and the natural wear on your clothes. It will be a staple item in your capsule wardrobe because it saves your clothes so you can love them longer and you save money in the process.
Repair Before Replacing
If you have a tiny hole in an item of clothing sew it or find someone to sew it for you! We need to start treating our clothing better and treating them like an investment. It will end up saving you a lot in the long run.
Washing your clothes contributes to wear on clothing. By spot cleaning a piece of clothing instead of throwing it in the wash you are saving the quality of the item.
Hand Wash and Lay Flat or Hang to Dry
Washing machines and dryers can be too intense for clothing or overtime ruin them. Hand-washing is an alternative that really makes you appreciate your clothing but, not everyone has the time. Avoiding the dryer is a little easier and is beneficial is so many ways. Hanging clothes to dry helps the item last longer and you can avoid those little fluffs on your clothing. If you talk to any ethical fashion brand owner they will beg you not to put your clothes in the dryer or at least try not to every time.
