Capsule Wardrobe: How Many Outfits Can You Make Out of 12 Items?
Building a Capsule Wardrobe for Women
The answer lies in your creativity.
I found 12 classic pieces of clothing I felt would make a great start to creating business capsule wardrobe. I also kept a color theme of just three colors: red, white, and black (okay, the jeans are blue!) for the women’s capsule. Building your base wardrobe around classic pieces and a color theme makes it easy for you to shop and also mix and match. I always say start with three colors first when building your wardrobe. Then as you advance, you can add in more pattern and a few other colors. So let’s see this in action now!

I placed a number to the right of each section of the total number of outfits created for that section. Below you will see the variations I created. I did add in a belt for fun. So just think of how these basic outfits can look even better by adding accessories such as jewelry, scarves, hats, handbags, and shoes!
