Capsule Wardrobe: a collection of a few essential items of clothing that will not go out of fashion, such as skirts, trousers, and coats, which can then be augmented with seasonal pieces.
So, I decided that trying a capsule wardrobe would help minimize clutter in my closet and boost my style morale. I’ve been using it for over a week and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made regarding my attire. I didn’t have to buy anything, although a camel colored pair of shorts would be a great addition to compliment all of my navy blue.
I’m extremely predictable when it comes to what I wear. It usually consists of navy blue, white, black, stripes, and any kind of anchor embellishment. I tried to stay with 33 items and follow the rules (because I am a rule follower) but because it is still so hot in Florida I decided that I had to include a variety of tops and bottoms to accommodate the weather. For fall, some of the items I included were:
- several tank tops (solids & prints, casual & 2 dressy)
- 3 pair of shorts (navy, black and denim)
- 1 pair of skinny jeans
- 2 pair of pencil pants (black and cobalt blue, one of pantones fall colors)
- several lightweight sweaters (navy, lime green, denim)
- several long sleeve tops
- polka dot button up top (one of my favorites)
I also added back in a pair of kelly green matchstick jeans (not shown) that I had alterations made on. I must say they are one of my favs, but it is still sweltering hot in Florida so they will have to wait a bit to be worn.
