The main point of this whole capsule wardrobe/lean closet/minimalist wardrobe thing? Finding a collection of clothing items that I actually wear, over and over again. While I still feel that my closet needs some work, I thought it would be a good exercise to look at the ten most worn pieces in my closet. I’m
