If you are gearing up for your first or next Project 333 capsule wardrobe beginning on October 1st, you are not alone. I’ve been reviewing my pieces from last fall and thinking about what to include this year.
If you aren’t sure what to include in your capsule wardrobe, please remember …
- There isn’t a one size fits all capsule wardrobe. This has to fit your body and your life.
- 33 is not a magic number. If your number is 38, 52, or 95, that’s ok.
- You don’t have to get rid of the items you don’t include in your capsule wardrobe. Set them aside and revisit after a few months. A little distance will give you clarity about which items you want to keep or not.
Keep these things in mind when browsing the resources below for capsule wardrobe inspiration.

Your heart: When you are ready to choose your 33 pieces, the above inspiration is lovely, but what matters is what you love. Start by choosing pieces from your own closet and then give yourself time to dress with less and figure out what makes you smile.
If wearing an old sweatshirt because you know you are going to get paint on it while working on your next masterpiece makes you smile, include it. If a frumpy pair of shoes make you smile because they are comfortable to walk miles in, include them. If a dress you’ve been saving for special occasions makes you smile, include it and wear it today. Today is a special occasion.
Inspiration is everywhere, but a capsule collection filled with your favorite pieces is the one that will last, and the one you will love.
