Core Capsule Wardrobe for Fall/Winter-Shirts

Capsule Wardrobe for fall and winter- shirt

Hello, Darlings!

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.

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.
