I have written about 5 piece french wardrobe here and here. Love it or hate it the 5 piece french wardrobe is definitely a thing of beauty. 

 

A curated wardrobe is the modern luxury that most successful people posses. Instead of spending an insane amount of time  in the morning deciding what to wear, and loosing precious energy, they rely on their curate wardrobe. The 5 piece french wardrobe system is a great way to build a curated wardrobe that will resonate with your signature style. 

Many of us are stuck in the vicious circle of overbuying, impulse buying and finally returning a purchase. Fashion’s ever-growing ghost economy attest to the fact that impulse buying and returning purchases are on rise.While retailers urge you to buy more and fast fashion is much-loved by the new generation  the price it extract from the environment is staggering.

Minimalism is not about having less.It’s about making room for more of what matters.

I love the idea of a curated, environment-friendly wardrobe that is ethical and environmental friendly choice. Huge amount of waste is generated in production of fabric such as jeans and the production of cheap clothes often involved child labourer and under paid workers.

Just because it is called  the French Wardrobe philosophy doesn’t necceessarily means it is about french style. It is more about how you buy clothes not what is your style preference. Well you do need things like the skirt that never goes out of style or the item  every girl needs to have in their closet.The popular philosophy is that your basic wardrobe allows you to spend more money on few special clothes. Additionally you will have more money to get your clothes tailored and achieve the perfect fit.Learn to manage and organize  your  wardrobe like a boss with the 5 piece french wardrobe method. It aims to achieve a well-balanced and functional wardrobe. A wardrobe that is not over flowing with random items that you don’t remember purchasing or wearing. Apart from that is the best way to maintain a curated wardrobe that grows by 5 piece every season.

While wearing the same outfit in a row for 2 day is frowned upon by most people it is not uncommon  to repeating outfits. Think about how much money would you like to spend on a items that you not wear more that 10 times or may be less.

All you need to know about 5 Piece French Wardrobe Part 1

If she can’t afford it, she won’t buy it. If it doesn’t fit (or make her feel good, or flaunt what she’s got), she won’t wear it. If she can’t find it, she won’t compromise. If she loves it, she won’t toss it. She reuses it, rethinks it, lets it age.

When a French girl shops, it isn’t a solitary act of buying something new. It’s part of a lifelong process of editing her environment, making small but meaningful additions to her home, her closet and her life.
