A Capsule Wardrobe is a trendy topic these days. Essentially, it’s creating a minimalist wardrobe that focuses on timeless pieces that can be interchanged and accessorized into various outfits. When you think about it, it’s not as daunting as it seems since most women only wear about 20% of the clothes in their closet.
Here is a starting point for what should be in your Capsule Wardrobe. Aim for less than 40 pieces altogether.
- Little black dress
- Ankle boots
- Dark wash denim jeans
- Crisp white tee
- Forgiving wrap dress
- Black slacks
- Fitted sweater
- Button-down shirt
Open yourself up to creatively mix and match. Layer pieces to create dimension or leave a shirt untucked one day and then tuck it into high-waisted jeans the next. Accessorize your look or change your hairstyle to dramatically change an outfit. A capsule wardrobe doesn’t have to be confining.
I’d love to see the looks you put together and I’ll be posting my capsule wardrobe looks in February on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Take a look and comment to let me know what’s working.
