Capsule wardrobes have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years. A capsule wardrobe is a way of curating your closet to contain a set amount of items which can be mixed and matched multiple ways.

Sustainable fashion doesn’t have to look one way. It can mold to your personal style and become your own. While capsule challenges, and ethical fashion at large, are depicted on mostly one type of person (thin, white, well-off, minimalist) they are for everyone.
