When you enter into the workforce having a work capsule wardrobe is important. You want a timeless wardrobe but also one that represents you as a professional. I spoke about the importance of a capsule wardrobe in this blog, but I feel that a work capsule wardrobe is even more important.
If you are on a limited income and do not have a lot of money to splurge on a new an all new closet full of work clothes, then a work capsule wardrobe is your answer. The key to creating a work capsule wardrobe is that you must choose pieces that mix well together and can be worn all year around.
This is why I came up with these must have work capsule wardrobe pieces and each item is super affordable as none of them are priced over $30.
Work Capsule Wardrobe Pants.
When looking at capsule wardrobe pants it is important to stick with neutral tones such as cream and black, so that they can be paired with many shirts. It is also a good idea to stay away from pants that are era specific. Meaning that bell bottom pants may not be in 5 years from now. The key to a capsule wardrobe is it lasting over time.
Work Capsule Wardrobe Dresses
Even if you choose patterns for your dress the colors still need to be neutral for the most part. Sheath dresses are timeless shape that never goes out of style and the dress can be paired with a blazer to give it a different look.
Work Capsule Wardrobe Skirts
Similar to the pants a plain color and shape will take you a lot way. The key to having a capsule skirt is that it should be able to be paired with many shirt and blazers if need be. Giving you an option for both a summer and winter look, when a blazer is added.
Work Capsule Wardrobe Shirts
All of your shirts should be dressed up. They should also be versatile enough that they can go with every season and a blazer should be able to be worn over them if need be. Once again giving it a different look. Stick to neutral tones and if you must choose patterns make sure the patterns are basic and are neutral as well.
Work Capsule Wardrobe Jackets
Adding a blazer or a light jacket to a look can make an outfit look very different. It can also make the outfit more versatile to be work in the colder months either. The key to the blazer since the tone has to be more of a solid tone is to make sure that you choose a great shaped jacket so that way you do not blend in.
