It’s been well documented in recent years, the efficiency and benefits of becoming a “minimalist” or embracing the idea of a capsule wardrobe. Growing up in America with a consumer mentality, and with the rise of “fast fashion” this can be a daunting idea to embrace and may even seem impossible to some. We think it’s worth noting though that some of the most successful people in recent memory have taken the idea to heart and lived a lifestyle of simplified decision making to create headspace for more important things. CEOs, Presidents, Artists, Designers, and some of Silicon Valley’s best have taken to the idea that having a limited number of clothing items paves the way for easier decision making when getting dressed, and also likely leads to owning higher quality products which means they’ll last longer and carry the added benefit of boosting your confidence and self-esteem. If you can pull it off, it’s really a win-win scenario. One that’s at least worth considering if not fully embracing, because let’s face it, who doesn't need to “get rid of some stuff?”

The Minimalists explain what being minimal means and Becoming Minimalist shows how 33 articles of clothing can equal 25,176 different outfits.

You can’t do it without the ever important “staple pieces” and for that, look no further than the cognac or black Marciante and Company’s "The Marie" women’s leather flat.

Be More With Less really helps break down how to build a capsule wardrobe.

That’s what we’re looking for when putting together a capsule wardrobe right? The only way it can work is having a limited number of items to make up the contents of your closet is if they each have versatile qualities and can be used in a number of different settings. A classic, high quality, well-made leather shoe is a perfect addition. They’re comfortable, they look great, and they can last you forever. The Marciante and Company "The Marie" women's leather flats are just that.
