WHAT’S A CAPSULE WARDROBE

A Capsule wardrobe is a thoughtfully selected group of items you can easily mix and match to maximize potential outfit options and space in your closet or suitcase.

TRAVEL CAPSULE

I’ve helped hundreds pack, some for a long weekend others for 28 days in Europe. They key is having the kind of outfit you need when you want it, even if the itenieruy or weather changes. You can do this with the right pieces.

LOOK AT 13 of the 16 OUTFITS I MADE USUING JUST 10 ITEMS

including shoes and accessories.

CAPSULE WARDROBE CHECKLIST

1. A COLORFUL CARIGAN

This is the most important piece because it can be worn with every outfit combination. Choose quality. A luxury label is worth the splurge.

2. A WHITE OR BLACK DRESS

A LBD or LWD should be a staple for your closet and your capsule. I’ve always been a fan of James Perse dresses. They are fitted but lined and have roughing strategically placed to hide imperfections. The black one I’m wearing is so soft and just the right weight. This Eileen Fisher tank dress has been my go to for my clients who travel and want something less body conscious.

Stylist Tip- for a LWD choose a classic shirt dress that hits above the knee so it can double as a tunic top.

3. WHITE OR BLACK PANTS

For travel consider something with 2% spandex or more so they keep their shape. Know your numbers and buy a pair that fits fabulous. If you like a lower rise, the ones I have on are only $20!

These are my favorite white ones. My taller friends who like a little higher rise to hold in their tummy are a fan of these from Fidelity.

4. HEELS

A square heel is the most versatile to dress up or down and easiest to walk in.

5. FLATS

You can’t go wrong with a sneaker or a slide. These are my favorite.

6. WHITE OR BLACK TANK

7.STRIPED TOP

One of the best “neutral prints” out there. A stripe top will add interest to outfit. Here are some smart short sleeve options.

8.BUTTON UP

This one piece alone can be styled so many different ways. See how I did here with my denim version and watch the video tutorial.

Stylist Tip- Buy an oversized silhouette. They look more effortless and are easier to transform

9. BELT

Belts are the best accessories. They help to draw lines on your body to define your waist and create different shapes and silhouettes. Wheater you wear them thought the loops or over your cardigan, make sure to buckle up! Found some sales on one of my favorites, Moschino.

Stylist Tip – choose a color and match it to your shoe to giving your neutral collection some pop!

10. PJS THAT YOU CAN WEAR OUT

This is like a secret weapon for your travel wardrobe. You can use the pieces to make more outfits and you won’t look silly wearing your PJs to breakfast. This Vuori jogger is the most recommended my Nordstrom Six friends.

AFFFORDABLE GUCCI CARDIAGN

The best closets, including my own, I curate with a mix from Target to Chanel. Luxury pieces like a Gucci cardigan can be surprisingly affordable.

STYLING PRINTS VS NEUTRALS

The key to styling prints vs neutrals is neutral prints. I've partnered with an industry stylist and an art teacher to show you how. If your style is eccentric, classic, or somewhere in the middle you can mix patterns.
