In this post, I will be sharing what I believe are the essentials needed for a fabulous year-round everyday capsule wardrobe. 36 pieces & 54 everyday outfit ideas! I truly feel that every woman needs all of these pieces in her closet to create the perfect outfit and to serve as the foundation to build upon with seasonal/trendy pieces throughout the year.
You can create endless outfits solely from this everyday capsule wardrobe. And, you can add a few new pieces here and there for a more colorful and/or seasonal outfit. Mostly, just change out your top or accessories with a seasonal or trendy piece to create a whole new look.
This will be a great starting point if you are wanting to build your own everyday capsule wardrobe or if you want to go through your closet and minimize what you have and start fresh. If you subscribe to my blog (top right side of my blog), you will receive an instant printable of my closet detox guide to help you get started.
Now, let’s get on with it and show some of the many outfit possibilities that you can create with just these capsule pieces! They possibilities are endless! And, don’t forget to bookmark this post for outfit inspiration!
