I have been toying around with the idea of a capsule wardrobe for a while now and whilst I think it would be great for the everyday and fantastic for my bank account, I believe it would be a little tedious for my readers to see the same palette all the time. That being said, there are a few blogs dedicated to the art of minimalist dressing including Un-Fancy who has nailed her casual capsule wardrobe.
As I started curating pieces to add to my work wardrobe, I realised that a capsule wardrobe would be the most efficient way to build a collection of long lasting pieces that can be styled a hundred different ways. Today was my first day at work and I wanted to share with you what I have so far.
These sixteen pieces make up a very micro capsule wardrobe and I think its a great place to build up from. Caroline from Un-Fancy says you should stick to a number and for her that’s 37 so I can still buy an additional 21 core pieces. I can’t wait to show you all the different layering, tucking and rolling up options that are possible. Also keep in mind, that some of these images are just for representation purposes and a few items will look different from this. What really impresses me about this collection is how versatile it is. I can see myself wearing every single item regardless of whether its a 9-5 working day or not.
I actually styled a couple of pieces from this capsule wardrobe a while back so you can see my first look below. Keep checking back from time to time and you will see more additions in the future. Also since this is the last month of summer, I aim to put up another Autumn Capsule Wardrobe in April with some warmer pieces!
