Capsule Wardrobe: Winter 2018 (recap)

Over the past 10 days I have been engaging in Stylebee’s “Winter 10×10” capsule wardrobe challenge. This time I wanted to share a recap of the different outfits I wore and to say the least, it was an absolute success!!

Basically the formula is 10 items of clothing you transition into 10 different outfits over 10 days.

Please Note: I decided to continue with the remix I have been successful with before by not including shoes or outerwear as part of my transitional collection.

My Intention.

My intention is to make my basic/ casual favorites, cute and to also engage with the capsule wardrobe community. I do not personally know anyone else who purposefully capsule wardrobes, so it was nice to be able to interact with like minded individuals, share my style as well as find new ways to fall in love with my wardrobe by learning tips from others. I avoided my denim shirt/jacket this time because there’s usually always one/ two included. Though there is nothing wrong with including one, I wanted to push my creativity a little more with my colorful items.

My Ten.

  1. grey fitted tee
  2. golden yellow long sleeve shirt
  3. green/blue/yellow plaid shirt
  4. grey sweater
  5. off-white/ cream fuzzy sweater
  6. “possibilities” yellow sweatshirt
  7. grey/white stripe dress
  8. charcoal grey jeggings
  9. dark blue denim jeans
  10. tan/brown plaid pants

The Outfits.

My 1st fave: Golden Vibes

I call this part of the wardrobe Golden Vibes because it felt so uplifting. I absolutely loved the color scheme I put together. It made everything so easy to pair. The first time I tried capsuling, I pre-planned the outfits I was going to wear, but this time I kind of pulled day to day.

My 2nd Fave: The “Picnic Dress”

I have a small collection of what I like to call, “picnic dresses.” I started calling them picnic dresses because they are slightly below the knee which is perfect for a picnic. The “picnic dress” got more play than I expected. I wore it three different ways which really pulled a new card from my creative deck.

  1. Casual- Plain
  2. Cute- with an Off-White cardigan
  3. Preppy- with a grey sweater

The Wind-Up.

At the end of my last capsule wardrobe post, I stated a few goals for future capsules. Those included documenting each day’s outfit and having a better variety of accessories. I did a decent job with documenting the outfits, but I’m still working on the accessories part. So the search continues. I do not want to just buy anything; quality is key! I did however make great use of one accessory, which I plan to share more of in a future post.
