Be more with less by building your own capsule wardrobe.

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Summer wardrobes can be tricky because here in Houston we are dealing with the heat and humidity.

If you want to build what is called a "capsule wardrobe," it might save you time and money and this isn't just for the ladies but also the guys.

The capsule wardrobe is buzzing all over social media sites like Pinterest.

So what is a capsule wardrobe?

This wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that are classic and can be mixed in with trendy and seasonal pieces.

Certified professional organizer Ellen Delap at gets paid to create capsule wardrobes for her clients.

She says with so much in men's and women's closets today, it's no wonder we can never find anything to wear.

Plus many of us keep duplicating the same items over and over again!

To create a capsule wardrobe, choose between 30 to 40 pieces you can wear for a season.

By creating groupings, you can build off that and create a couple dozen outfits.

And don't forget about the shoes-- pick styles that work with your capsule.
