Capsule Wardrobe: Work Edition

I’ve always been interested in the idea of a capsule/minimalistic wardrobe. I think it’s a great way to reduce clutter in your closet and overspending on things you don’t need. I personally don’t think I could ever actually reduce my wardrobe to only a few pieces to make it minimalistic (because I get bored and I like the variety), but I do think it’s a great idea.

Today, I wanted to share my first attempt at a capsule wardrobe. I decided to use the following items:

  1. Black Pants
  2. Medium Wash Jeans
  3. Gray Plaid Skirt
  4. White Button Down
  5. White Cami
  6. Black Cami
  7. Gray Cardigan
  8. Nude Blazer
  9. Green Dress
  10. Black Dress

I decided on 10 items that I thought would make up a good capsule wardrobe for work and then I styled them 10 ways. I also tried to keep it simple by only using 2 bags and 3 pairs of shoes. It was definitely not super easy to come up with these outfits, but I think overall I did okay! Again, I think in my own closet I like to have more variety, but for someone who loves to stick with neutrals and classic pieces this is a great way to go!

Here are all the looks I came up with!

Top: Express / Blazer: BCBG MaxAzria / Pants: Old Navy / Shoes: Old Navy / Bag: Celine
Top: Old Navy / Cardigan: Forever 21 / Shoes: Steve Madden 
Jeans: American Eagle / Shoes: Steve Madden / Bag: Kate Spade
