Capsule wardrobes have never appealed to me but as I look at what I’ve worn this winter, I see that my clothes have morphed into one. Maybe yours have too. I own a decent amount (ahem) of clothes but I mix and match the same pieces over and over throughout the season, which is essentially a capsule wardrobe.
Here’s what I rotated most often this winter. I made a lot more than 25 outfits from these pieces because they’re classic shapes and neutral colors.
After our talk about black here and flattering colors here, I began to look for more clothes and accessories in my summer palette. Black is easy to center a wardrobe around because it’s readily available and everything matches.
I realize that if I’m going to have any success stepping back from my predominantly black wardrobe, I’m going to need a plan. I created a small capsule of 18 outfits using the 9 items below that fit my inverted triangle shape and coloring. There are lots of other ways to combine these pieces, but you see where I’m going with this.
9 Wardrobe Items
I used the 12 accessories below to add more variety.
A capsule wardrobe contains however many garments you need, that mix and match to create multiple looks. They’re customized for your lifestyle, coloring and meant to save you money. They also simplify your life because they take the guesswork out of getting dressed.
Seeing this capsule allows me to visualize a spring wardrobe that’ll be easy to put together, travel with and wear. Luckily I already own pieces that transition into spring. Here’s a mirror selfie from yesterday showing my move to blue.
Would you find it helpful to have a capsule wardrobe template for your body shape each season?
Would it also be helpful to have it in your color season?
If you liked this post, I’d love for you to pin this to Pinterest. Thanks!
Thanks for reading ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
