When I think of Scandinavia, I think of minimalism. Whether it concerns interior design or fashion, people from the Northern countries seem to think: less is more. Minimalism, however, is not only a matter of aesthetics, but an entire lifestyle. Although the principle of focusing on only the things that count in a world where abundance is practically a given is not new, only a few really live by it.

One method to truly be a minimalist is to have Capsule Wardrobe. The concept behind it is to gather a limited number of pieces that ideally can be combined among one another. If you reduce your closet to only your closet staples, you’ll have much less to worry about in the morning. Forget about those days when you couldn’t find anything to wear in a huge pile of clothes. Capsule wardrobe is truly the perfect solution for those of you who love the uncomplicated and structured side of life.
