A kapszulagardrób szerepe a hétköznapokon és a nyaralás során

A carefully thought-out capsule wardrobe tailored to your needs and lifestyle can make your everyday life a lot easier, but you can also benefit a lot from it during a vacation. You can say goodbye to the long preparation in the morning, unnecessary shopping and your suitcase overflowing with clothes as soon as you create such a wardrobe. In our latest article, we give you advice on putting together a capsule wardrobe!  


First of all, what is a capsule wardrobe?  

A capsule wardrobe consists mostly or entirely of high-quality basic pieces that can be combined with each other easily and in many ways. This can only be beneficial from the point of view of usability, sustainability and functionality, so it is no coincidence that this method has been increasingly popular in recent years.  

What are the advantages of a capsule wardrobe?  

It is cost-effective , since such a wardrobe consists of a specific number, usually 30-40 items of clothing; underwear not included, but shoes and accessories included. These are well-thought-out basic pieces, so you won't have to spend on extra clothes, and you can also curb impulsive purchases. Space-saving , as it really only contains the "essence". It is time-efficient , because you also save on pointless spending and long contemplation in front of the wardrobe. It's environmentally friendly because you don't bring unnecessary things home. If trends and fashion are not your thing , this method is still a good choice, since with its help you don't need to devote so much time, money and energy to dressing, but you can still live your everyday life in the correct outfits that you like.  

How do you get started?  

Unpack your entire wardrobe and go through it carefully! Sort them into three piles: those that are no longer wearable, those that are in good condition, but for some reason you don't wear them - you can sell or give them away - and finally; that you love and wear. You will work with the latter set, it will be the basis of your capsule wardrobe. Notice which colors you like to wear most often; these will be your basic colors, which you will complement with a few other shades. It is important that this color palette harmonizes nicely, that everything can be paired with each other!  

For a couple of weeks, wear only the ones you selected in this pile and observe how viable the end result is, because you may still find a piece that you judged wrongly and still has to go! After that, you can get the missing items, but don't rush! Rather, it may take longer to find exactly what you are looking for, but only take home the perfect piece of impeccable quality for you! Always keep your color palette and lifestyle in mind when adding a new member to your wardrobe! Don't despair if you find it difficult to get used to the new system, or if the process is time-consuming at first, since building a well-functioning capsule wardrobe can take up to 1-2 years, but everything will pay off later!  

Capsule wardrobe for vacation?  

We can put together separate capsule wardrobes for certain occasions, such as work, evening programs or vacations. The latter can be particularly useful, since saving space is the number one consideration when traveling.  

When designing the Printa collections, we always keep the capsule approach in mind. The pieces of the summer Breeze harmonize perfectly with each other, they can be varied in many ways, and in fact every piece fits together.

We have created 3 different, complete capsule wardrobes from Zita's wardrobe, specially designed for holidays, so that you have something to draw inspiration from!


The "Kapolcs" capsule wardrobe is a true festival-compatible selection. Light, bohemian style, with bright colors and comfortable, practical basic pieces.


Our "Balaton" selection is a fresh, blue-white composition that pleasantly reflects the waterfront atmosphere. Zita's love for Balaton is deeply rooted, so pieces of this style always appear in Printa's range, even in the latest STRAND collection.


Our third capsule wardrobe is a clean, sand-beige wardrobe with strong black contrasts. Perfect for any vacation, but this selection was definitely inspired by soft, sandy beaches!

We hope our article inspired you to create a more conscious wardrobe and that our tips will be useful in the future!
