Black & White Capsule Wardrobe

Featured, Let's Spend Some Money, Style

With more people watching budgets and working from home right now, we thought it was the perfect time to put together a Zoom ready capsule wardrobe for home. You can find similar pieces in your closet or shop the links below for a quick pick-me-up for your wardrobe.

As a quick refresh, a capsule wardrobe is one with pieces you can mix and match in multiple ways. The key to any capsule wardrobe is selecting a mix and match color palette for ultimate versatility. The capsule should also include a good number of basics that can be intermixed with accessories, layering pieces and other items to create a number of different looks. Remember the 3-Piece Rule we mentioned? It becomes even more essential for extending a capsule on a budget.

In the case of a work from home wardrobe, that 3rd piece might be a denim jacket, a sweatshirt or cardigan and your accessory might be a hair accessory or statement pair sneakers. And of course because we are all fashionistas at heart, be sure to include a few on trend pieces like this season’s white Birkenstocks (or similar dupe), graphic tees or the suddenly trending sweatpant joggers. A low budget does not have to mean low fashion! Amen to that!

We’ve put together a list of 20 pieces from Amazon that can be mixed together to make 100 outfits or more. Below are a few of our favorite capsule combinations. Click on the Slider links to purchase individual pieces then check out the mix and match outfit charts below for inspiration.

LAYERS

These layers are considered completer pieces and are great for layering over tops and bottoms for chilly mornings or evenings to make your outfit look more finished. Consider adding these for morning video meetings.  We suggest all 3 layer to maximize your wardrobe. Choose from below or check your closet for a black cardigan, denim jacket and a cozy sweatshirt.
