CAPSULE WARDROBE CHECKLISTS | 4 STYLES,10 PIECES, ENDLESS OPTIONS

Whatever your lifestyle is you can achieve a fashionable ageless look with just 10 pieces. A well chosen capsule wardrobe is the key to effortlessly pulling it all together without looking boring.

Here are 4 of the most popular styles many of us can identify with. Each ten piece capsule wardrobe will make enough outfits to go an entire week without wearing the same one twice. All the capsules have a key layering piece, a mix of my Styling Staples, and items that are current and updated.

1. PREPPY

Its so easy to make outfits if you start with classics like a blazer and a button up. This season double breasted is back. This style by L’AGENCE comes in all your favorite neutral colors and fits so nicely. If you choose another color blazer, you can easily substitute different neutral print skirt like this leopard print or black and white check option.

Make more capsules by changing out your color story.

2. SPORTY

Always on the move? This style is just as pretty as it is practical. Every piece’s fabrication is thoughtfully chosen with how it feels on first. These Vuori Performance joggers are my client’s favorite joggers of all time. Get this denim inspired jean jacket made of lightweight tencel. It’s perfect for warm months ahead. You’ll stay on trend with updated shoes like quilted sports slides and a new sneaker.

A new set means a new capsule. There are so many cozy lounge wear sets out right now. Take your pick then match your kicks.

3. BOHO

Femanine silhouettes and natural colors give this capsule an effortless look. Play up your girly side a little bit of lace. A bralette like this is so pretty peeking out the sides of your tank, under your button up, or on the back of an open sundress.

Pro Tip- To get the most mileage out of each capsule try to get every top to go with every bottom.

NOT A FAN OF CUTOFFS?

You can get the look and light weight feel with distressed jeans instead or try a longer inseam short like this version of the Parker (above).

Pro Tip- If you’re not confident enough to wear shorts try a super light weight jean.

BIRKENSTOCKS

4. FASHION FORWARD

If you love fashion your capsule should have all these pieces. A real fashion coinsure knows the value of few timeless designer pieces like an Affordable Gucci Cardigan and a Designer Belt. She also incorporates the newest trends like jelly bags and sandals.

Pro Tip- Think beyond mixing and matching the pieces. Instead, think about how you can style them to make new outfits. For example all the ways to wear a button down.

JELLY BAGS

These all come in multiple colors!
