Capsule Wardrobe

I loved this weekend’s WSJ article in the Off Duty section talking about creating a capsule wardrobe. For some of us having too many choices can be overwhelming. The idea behind the article is having a tightly edited closet with many go to basics. They selected 12 pieces and created an outfit for everyday of the week. I listed all the items below along with a couple of my picks.

  1. Nike Daybreak Sneaker
  2. Toteme Stripe Turtleneck Sweater love this look for less piece by Alex Mill that just dropped.
  3. Ralph Lauren Blue Button Down
  4. Charlotte Chesnais Mini Hoop Earrings look for less Mini Twisted Hoop.

  6. Celine Class Peacoat look for less J. Crew.
  7. Pearl and Gold Necklace Completed Works also like this minimalistic one from Sophie Buhai.
  8. Les Reveries Silk Floral Midi

  10. Emme Parcons Julien Boot or for a more casual look Common Projects Chelsea Boot.
