Have you ever experienced when you open your closet in the morning but you end up just standing there not knowing what to wear and how to wear for that day?
Capsule wardrobe is not a new fashion concept, instead, it was introduced around 1985. The idea of a capsule wardrobe is to create a minimalist wardrobe by eliminating the outfits to 37 pieces or less.
A minimalist wardrobe is basically classic, quality items in neutral colors that are interchangeable and easily pair or layer with each other.
However, this is not asking you to own a pair of jeans with a different color t-shirt for 7 days a week. A minimalist wardrobe can include casual chino, trousers, dress shirts, sports shirts, mid layer, casual jacket, hat and etc.
You can pair with these essential outfits and accessories and still look cool in your desired way.
One thing to remember: a minimalist wardrobe is different for every guy, so you can follow our guidelines below or just build your own styles!
Black hat is one of the stylish items that could be used on any occasion. The concept of minimalism is to reuse a stylish item that can be paired with any kind of outfit and obviously black hat was.
Black never goes wrong, but be mindful with the words printed on the t-shirt.
If you dislike wearing a cap, knitted headwrap could be another good choice. Plain color t-shirt definitely fit into the concept of minimalism.
White sneakers are the best shoes that pair well with any kind of pants.
A clean and modern outlook with plain white t-shirt (fitted), dress pants, and white sneakers.
If it’s summertime, wearing a single color singlet could be a nice pick as well.
You will definitely need at least one sweater in your minimalist wardrobe.
A nice combination to be wear during fall.
Imagine you need to go on vacation near the beach with your girlfriend, a piece of nice Hawaiian print shirt surely will not be too much because it can be wear during a casual day too.
Go with rocker looks with a damn nice denim shirt.
Whether you are wearing a full suit for working, you would still need a set of nicely designed suit in your minimalist wardrobe that fits into different occasions like wedding, funeral, graduation, or interview.
The overcoat is almost a necessary winter item to be wear during fall or winter. Keep one in your minimalist wardrobe. Black tie, black dress pants and leather monk strap dress shoes with white shirt are the coolest combination if you ask for minimalism.
Own a full set of shining suit that comes with a vest, it could be pretty cool to be wear in a wedding party.
How could we miss the mighty black suits? Whether it is paired with white shirt or with a plain color t-shirt, it is still very trending and stylish.
When we want to attend an after-work party, we might not want to wear a full suit as it is too formal. This is why we need a casual shirt that will not look over formal for a semi-formal event.
Other than the white shirt, we think blue and gray shirt is another good choices. Blue shirt is a must for almost every man, whether it is light blue or dark blue.
Whether it is a checked shirt or pinstripe shirt, they are the best fit for attending a semi-formal event.
Undoubtedly, every man should at least own a good jacket to protect himself from the elements. Whether it is made of denim, leather, wool, tweed or corduroy, and whether it is bomber, windbreaker, blazer or overcoat, you gotta own one at least in your minimalist wardrobe.
Bomber jacket is a stylish jacket that could pair with any kind of jacket. Pick bomber jacket if you only want to own one jacket in your minimalist wardrobe.

Overcoat is only applied on fall or winter but it won’t be a bad idea to own one.
Sporty jackets aren’t only for workout outfits.
The leather jacket is one of the stylish items that we strongly recommend to own one. You don’t have to invest in a real leather which is costly. The leather jacket is so easy to be matched with any kind of t-shirt, shirt, and pants. A nice leather jacket could also last for years.
We definitely do not want to miss out the sport wear series. Almost every man will do exercise, go to a gym or attend some existing outdoor activities. As a minimalist, you need to own at least 2 sets of sport wear for exchange.
A safer choice with all black sport wear.
A sport wear style that is suitable for a morning jogging.
Singlet is not expensive and it could be wear everywhere, whether it is at home, gym, friend gathering or outdoor activities.
