Simple Is Best

· ·

Our focus at Otherware is to bring you high quality, ethically produced, sustainable pieces that not only look great, but feel great and will last the test of time. In a world that is constantly go, go, go with fast fashion options everywhere, we're trying to kick back and slow it all down again.

We're working to incorporate a Capsule Wardrobe plan into our own kids clothing options this season, which is easier said then done! What we love about this approach is simple: less laundry, less things/stuff, less options and a focus on better quality, supporting small business, and supporting sustainability. Here are a few tips to creating your own Capsule Wardrobe, because if we're being honest less truly is more.

 

Sem Label Romper - AW18 Conscious Collection

 

WHAT TO INCLUDE

A kids capsule wardrobe should include approximately 12-15 everyday wear items.

Girls

  • 7 tops
  • 5 bottoms
  • 2 dresses

 Boys

  • 7 tops
  • 5 bottoms

Additional Items

  • Coat
  • 1 pair of running shoes
  • 1 pair of boots or sandals (season/climate dependent)

WHAT TO LOOK FOR

Well made items that will last and can be reused rather then having to be thrown out after one childs use. We recommend picking a couple of great brands and buying multiple pieces from them to coordinate. A few of our go to brands for each season are Sem Label, Jax & Lennon, and Adelisa for the best boots, shoes & sandals.

Neutral colour schemes with minimal patterns and graphics. Make it easy for yourself and your kids to match everything without having to argue or put much thought into it each morning. We all know that for some kids picking out what to wear everyday is super stressful and makes getting out the door super challenging for everyone involved.

Comfortable material because if you're going to ask someone to wear something over and over it better feel great!

Simple.

Happy capsuling mama's!
