The sample capsule I have built has a great mix of pieces that can be put together for casual outfits or dressed up a bit. Like I said in my last post, you want to make sure your capsule pieces fit your lifestyle,
For more casual looks, a great tee shirt can be a great base for an outfit. You can easily wear a tee by itself when the weather is nicer or pair it with a jacket or cardigan when the the weather is cooler. I really love the detail on the Ruffle Hem T-Shirt. I always prefer short sleeve so I can wear them all year long.
In addition to tee shirts, I included a basic stripe, nice white shirt, a chambray, a cute black top, and a print. While those are the categories that I would choose for my capsule, your capsule can have any combination as long as the tops you pick can be worn multiple ways. I am really drawn to black and navy myself. My favorites are the black camisole and the navy printed top.
Cardigans and Sweaters
Of course you need bottoms for your outfits. I stick to pretty neutral colors for my bottoms but you can add a color that works with your tops too. I recommend two different cuts of jeans, a pair of black pants, and a colored pair. For the colored pair, you could go with white if you like wearing white pants in the winter.
Jeans and Pants
Some people stray away from skirts because they can be hard to match. If you pick the right shape and color you can wear it many different ways. I really like the brown but depending on the colors of your capsule you could pick black or blue.
It is always a good idea to have at least one dress in your capsule. The shirtdress is a great option if you are wanting something very versatile. I love how a simple shirt dress cane be dressed up a bit or worn more casually depending on the accessories and shoes you pair with it.
Pull outfits together with a great jacket or blazer. A jean jacket adds a casual feel while a blazer looks a bit more polished. If you work in a business casual environment, I would pick the blazer over the jean jacket as you would get more use out of it.
Blazers and Jackets
It can be easy to have a large collection of accessories. I used to have tons of cheap jewelry that I never wore. Instead, pick a few quality pieces that you love.
