Labor Sales are in full swing and I thought I would do some evaluating of my wardrobe to see how I am set for fall and winter. I have found that there are a few KEY pieces you need to have in your wardrobe for fall. With these pieces, you can mix and match and create tons of outfits. Many people call this a capsule wardrobe.
First. The Power of the Black Shirt
You need several black shirts. A short sleeve black, a long sleeve, and a tank or shell. I would also add a nice black “date night or fun shirt”. For me, of course, it will be cold shoulder cause it looks good on me. I have also added a trendy black bell sleeve top too.
These t-shirts do not have to be expensive at all. I get mine from Gap & Old Navy. Here are some of the current ones and of course they are on sale. I like a more feminine cut and crew neck. The crew neck is the best for displaying jewelry.

EveryWear Long Sleeve T-shirt From Old Navy.
This is my go to for winter. Throw on a jacket, vest, or great scarf and this t-shirt is an everyday piece.
Chicos Travelers Essential Reversible Tank.
This is the one I have. The material is soft and drapes wonderfully. You can wear this tank by itself and add jewelry and accessories. One of my favorites!
The Classic White Shirt
I am not a big fan of what I call “iron ME shirt”. I just don’t have time but a classic white shirt is a must have in your capsule wardrobe. The classic white shirt can be quite sexy with a pop-up collar and slightly unbuttoned. Now with all the new technology, no iron shirts are the rage. You can find lots of brands out there. I chose this No Iron Wide Cuff Shirt from Chicos in petite. Not only can you wear it under sweaters and vest, but it makes a great layering top as well when you leave it unbuttoned and untucked.
Shop For Shirts
This Labor Day weekend lot of sales are going on. You can get 40% off Old Navy, 20% off Gap, and Chico’s is always having a sale. Now is the time to evaluate your wardrobe and make a list of the pieces you need. It is amazing all the things you can do with a core capsule wardrobe. Next blog is all about jeans and pants!
