A Capsule Collection.
By definition, a capsule collection is small collection made up of core pieces that not only remain in your wardrobe rotation, but thrive in your rotation! Your capsule collection should also be timeless. Traditionally, one would maintain their capsule collection and only add pieces that are on trend or for a specific occasion in small bits once a season. This concept also provides a woman FREEDOM. Freedom to always have the perfect outfit for any day, any event and any type of weather that rolls in.
How do you do this, you are asking. Below is a list of a core collection that is most likely, already in your current closet.

Create Seasonal Budget Allowance
Take the time to review YOUR personal finances and only give yourself a seasonal apparel allowance based on what will work for YOU, not your neighbor, friend you fancy at work or the ever changing "mom" at your Childs school. BE YOU! Using this allowance, add a couple items each season to illuminate your Capsule Collection.
