Then we have the perfect solution for you! Why not create a capsule wardrobe? Yes, we hear you thinking. What is a capsule wardrobe? A capsule wardrobe is a wardrobe with a limited number of items. Items that you must have in your closet and that you can easily style with other items. Sounds good right? With our tips to create a capsule wardrobe you will be ready to conquer the world. Ready, set, go!
Step 1: Find your basics
Reduce, reduce, reduce
It’s simple. Reduce your wardrobe to 12 items that will form the foundation of your wardrobe. The good thing about these items is that you can combine them endlessly and adapt them perfectly according to the specific look you want to create.
A must have basis in your wardrobe
One of the items you most definitely should add to your wardrobe is one of our timeless raincoats. A coat that has it all, never out of style and is wearable throughout all seasons, whenever & wherever your journey takes you to.
Ways to wear our raincoats
If you want to go for a more feminine look, you should always have the tailored trench in your closet. Want to go for a cleaner look? Then putting on your waist belt coat is the way to go. But there’s more! We are huge fans of the idea of a conscious wardrobe. That’s why we invest in clothing that is built to last, made in a way that is considerate to the people that make our coats. So, adding one of our coats to your wardrobe is a good idea! We promise.
Step 2: Use the right method
Sort the clothes you already have
Put them neatly on your bed and divide them into different piles, so you know what you want to keep and what can go away. Most important: get rid of all the clothes you don’t wear! If you want to keep your wardrobe organized, you can divide your entire wardrobe into summer and winter items.
Sort by type
By doing this you will find out what might be missing from your wardrobe. Obviously, we want the basic items in our capsule wardrobe to last as long as possible.

Step 3: Accessories are key
Minimize to a small number of accessories per season
Every fashionista knows this rule. An outfit is not complete without accessories. What accessories do you need in your closet? What about our scarfs or beanies for in the winter? Add a bucket hat and a bag for a cute summer look. We like.
The slow fashion principle
So, creating a capsule wardrobe is a good idea. It is the perfect way to stick to your own style and wear something that makes you feel good.
How nice that you can wear the pieces from time to time again. You don’t have to discard pieces once purchased. Thumbs up!
At Rain Couture, we design one coat for all-weather circumstances, all seasons and occasions. We believe in slow fashion too and that’s why we have a slow fashion approach.
Our slow fashion approach:
- We release 3 timeless classics every summer or winter, made in limited quantities.
- We only produce when goods are sold out, so we don’t have an overstock.
- Timeless means never-out-of-style designs, so we don’t have sale.
- All of our products are made with fair labor.
It’s about investing in clothing that is built to last, made in a way that is considerate to the people that make our coats. We hope our timeless all-weather coats will be the foundation of your Capsule Wardrobe for many years to come.
