Planning is critical to achieve success in everything that you do, especially if you are trying to make a (drastic) change in your life.
And let’s face it, going from the standard western (jam-packed) closet to a curated, 30-something pieces wardrobe isn’t an easy affair for any of us.
From purging your current wardrobe to defining your style, budget and favorite brands, the to-do list is long, which makes the planning process only the more critical.
Which is why I have compiled in this post the top 4 planners to help you build your own capsule wardrobe from scratch.

Here are the 4 TOP free planners online
1. The Popular Planner from Unfancy
Unfancy is a source of inspiration for women looking to build a minimalist wardrobe.
un-fancy.com was born in 2014 “out of a desire to find (her) style and curb (her) mindless shopping habit”. Back then, the blogger behind Unfancy, Caroline, had a “closet full of cheap clothes but ‘nothing to wear’.”
After experimenting with a minimal closet for a full year, she found her sweet spot: a structured, curated closet of 37 pieces. She’s documented her journey since then and provides all kind of useful information from (light) packing guides to seasonal outfit inspiration.
Practical, clean, yet action-driven, unfancy’s planner is probably one of the most popular planners out there.

2. Multi-purpose wardrobe planner – Anuschka Rees
Popular Berlin-based blogger, Anuschka Rees, is the author of the Amazon bestseller ‘The Curated Closet’ that helps you identify and refine your style, overhaul your closet and teaches you how to shop smarter.

Encircled is a Toronto-based designer and manufacturer of capsule wardrobe essentials. The company’s CEO and founder, Kristi Soomer is a former management consultant who spent most of her life in airports. She started Encircled out of a desire to help women travel lighter.
The planner is beautifully designed and a solid step-by-step approach to building a sustainable, long-lasting capsule wardrobe. I especially love the ‘closet audit’ and the additional resources with a list of related blogs and books.
