Building a Capsule Wardrobe

{Links to all products in table below}

In addition to streamlining your existing closet, it’s important to evaluate whether you have the basic building blocks to create a capsule wardrobe. For me, these basic pieces are the ones displayed above. These 28 pieces can all be easily mixed-and-matched or layered together to form a number of casual to dressy looks. Once you have these basic building blocks, you can easily incorporate additional one-off pieces and feel confident that you’ll have something to wear them with. Plus, most of these pieces are trans-seasonal, making them well worth the investment! I’ve linked to all of these items below as well as shared a few tips on pairing these pieces together. These pieces can be found at a number of stores so my advice as you start shopping is to use these items as a guideline and to buy them in the classic colors talked about in this post (white, navy, black, tan, pale pink, etc.) so you can get the most wear from them.
