This capsule wardrobe has 39 items- which I know is a little more than my past capsules. However, I am trying to blend a professional teacher wardrobe with comfy/casual pieces as well. The 39 items include: pants, skirts, tops, cardigans, dresses, scarves, purses, and shoes. Having a capsule wardrobe is all about curating and paring down to a wardrobe filled with only the things you love. You have to be discerning and carefully evaluate each piece. By doing so, it makes it so much easier to get dressed in the morning, and you always feel like you look your best.
My number one tip for creating a versatile capsule wardrobe is to stick to a color palette. If you stick to a simple color palette, it makes it SO much easier to put outfits together. Many people seem to think with such few items, your wardrobe needs to be completely neutral for the capsule to work. WRONG! It is really very easy to mix in colorful pieces, as long as you have plenty of neutral pieces to mix in as well.
For example: my neutral colors for the season include: white, grey, and black. However, I add in pops of pink, navy, and blue to make it more colorful and fun!
So, here you go! My Spring Capsule Wardrobe:
Tops: 13 Cardigans: 2 Pants: 6 Skirts: 3 Dresses: 4 Scarves: 2 Purses: 2 Shoes: 7
See? That wasn't so bad was it! If you're new to the concept of a capsule wardrobe I encourage you to give it a try. It may seem scary to go through and purge your wardrobe, but I promise in the end you won't even miss the items you donate.
