What is a capsule wardrobe?

Spring is the perfect time to start with a minimalist wardrobe. If you are just getting ready for spring cleaning, you shouldn’t miss your wardrobe either. Disgracefully discard pieces that you have not worn for more than half a year, because you will most likely not take this piece for the next six months either.
