My first capsule wardrobe

May 29, 2017

It was spring when I created my first wardrobe capsule, when the weather is less than predictable in New Jersey, so I had to account for that. For my spring wardrobe, I chose rain boots, regular booties, chucks and heels, as well as several jackets. My entire wardrobe, including accessories, came in under 40 items. 33, to be exact. I managed to create a wardrobe capsule without shopping for a single additional item, which made me really happy! I realized that I actually have plenty of outfits with my current items regardless of my “nothing to wear” perception of my closet.

So far I have not missed a single thing that I put away out of sight.

As I promised in my previous post, I came up with a number of sample outfits, and those are only a small portion of outfit ideas I could create with my current capsule wardrobe.

Styling Tips

Most of my outfits are casual and only a few business-casual, just because I created it in accordance with my lifestyle and the frequency I need to dress for the office. Since I only need to show in the office once a month or so, this is reflected in in my capsule wardrobe.
