Wardrobe Essentials: 5 Days of Outfits with Capsule Wardrobe

You need your wardrobe essentials. Look at these 5 days of outfits that use a small capsule wardrobe. You’ll learn how to dress for work, a date, brunch, the grocery story, and your perfect self!

You might be wondering what a capsule wardrobe exactly is. Well, it’s a wardrobe that is typically worn for a season and has a limited number of pieces, normally ranging from 20 – 50 pieces. The creator of the capsule wardrobe, Caroline Rector, suggests a capsule wardrobe of 37 items that you can change up every season as you see fit. The items included in the capsule wardrobe are your absolute essentials, seasonal options, and even random trendy pieces you just want to keep for a little bit.



We’re going to use 7 items to style 5 days of outfits. These 7 items are essential pieces that every girl should have in her wardrobe to ensure that she looks stylish each and every day, even if you feel at your worst. When I put my car in the repair shop to get a new car battery, I had to take a Lyft to work. I scheduled the Lyft to pick me up at 7:45am. I forgot to set my alarm, so I miraculously woke up to a text from Lyft saying that my driver would be there in 3 minutes. Because I have a wardrobe with the highest quality essentials, I was downstairs with my outfit on and brushed teeth in 5 minutes. I knew that I still looked stylish and comfortable, and my co-worker even exclaimed that I looked just as good as I looked any other day.  

That is the power of having the right clothes. Now, here are 7 essential items for your wardrobe that we are going to work with during the next 5 days:
