Invest in a wardrobe capsule for work that you can wear casually. Rework pieces like a blazer or a dress to make outfits for the weekend. When you’re off duty, all of the 8 closet essentials on my 2023 Work Wardrobe Checklist can do double duty as part of a casual outfit. Here are some mix-and-match outfit ideas you can use anytime that start with a few high-low versions of my Work Capsule Wardrobe.
WEAR A COLORFUL BLAZER CASUALLY WITH JEANS
Take your favorite pair of new jeans and wear them casually with a spring blazer. If you’re looking to refresh your jeans with a new style that’s current and flattering to your figure, take my FREE jean quiz HERE. With all these pretty spring colors I personally love light-wash jeans.

Closet Essentials New Wardrobe Checklist
There are a few versions of my New Wardrobe Checklist in this work capsule.
Worthy White Blazers
Flattering Double Breasted White Blazers
Soft White Blazers
The biggest difference, besides the price, in these 3 styles is the fabric. You pay more for quality fabric that isn’t transparent or wrinkles as easily. If you’re looking for another style to add to your mix versus a year-round staple like the Cinq a Sept try this puff sleeve Amazon-style under $60. All of these styles are versatile shades of white in between bright white and ivory.
Cropped White Blazers
Add more variety to your mix and match with a cool cropped blazer.
If you look better in ivory or winter white you can substitute an ivory blazer and any of these key pieces to create the same capsule wardrobe combinations from the lookbook. Likewise navy blue is a great alternative to black.
