Wardrobe Capsule March 2013

Wardrobe Capsule March 2013

Wardrobe Capsule March 2013 by wingedwriter featuring stretch skinny jeans

Today I'm going to share with you the fifteen items hanging in my closet. I made a visual from Polyvore (with clothes similar to my own), since I can't seem to make time to photograph my clothes in good daylight! My current wardrobe capsule consists of 7 tops, 4 bottoms and 4 jacket/cardigans:

Tops
  1. Navy button-down polka-dot
  2. Navy silk flowy
  3. Multi-color patterned
  4. White front-pleated
  5. Black decorative tee
  6. Purple silk (gray in photo)
  7. Black v-neck tee

Bottoms
  1. Denim pencil skirt
  2. Tan pencil skirt
  3. Skinny blue jeans
  4. Teal skinny jeans (coming soon)

Cardigans/Jackets
  1. Black striped
  2. Gray flyaway lace
  3. Purple (recent gift from my daughter)
  4. Tan decorative jacket (gift from my sister)

Over 140 outfits come from this small amount of clothes. I know that might be hard to believe, but just look:

All 7 tops with denim skirt
All 7 tops with tan skirt
All 7 tops with blue jeans
All 7 tops with teal jeans 

{28 OUTFITS so far! That's about a month's worth. Now to add a jacket/cardigan.}

TOTAL: 140 OUTFITS!!

P.S. You could use the button-down (polka dot) shirt as a jacket to add even more outfits!

Yes, I know that charting this out reveals my inner geek, but I'm okay with that; it was showing anyway. I'll share links on how to make a capsule wardrobe stretch further with scarves in a future post. "Ooooo, ahhhh."

If you'd like to see outfit combinations like these in photos, the blog Outfits Posts, does it really well.

    1. I'm so glad it inspired you, Melissa! The key is to make sure all your tops go with all your bottoms; took me awhile to figure that out. :)

    1. YES! I'm happy it's inspiring you! Also, it helps to figure out your "uniform". That outfit that you're most often reaching for (feel put together in). My uniform is jeans,lose-fitting shirt, cardigan and/or scarf; so knowing this when I chose my capsule made it easier to decide what clothes to keep. I have another friend who's capsule would be almost all dresses and cardigans because that's her go-to thing.
