This is the last of the winter capsule wardrobe challenge articles, so I thought I would give you a complete overview of how versatile it can be.
These are just a sampling of the outfits that can be created with the pieces from my winter capsule wardrobe.
The capsule can form the basis of a minimal wardrobe, now getting more and more popular.
I hope I have been able to show you that a minimal wardrobe need not be boring or monochromatic. If you are smart with your choices you can still wear lots of color and wear a variety of different silhouettes.
And here is how I wore these outfits with the coat!
I was very sparse with the use of additonal accessories here, but I’m sure you have a variety of accessories already in your wardrobe that you could easily mix and match with the outfits of your capsule.
Also note the absence of blue jeans. Although I gravitate more towards lighter colored jeans, these outfits would all look great with blue jeans too.
The capsule star
Did you notice that I wear the same shoes with all these outfits?
It’s fair to say that my silver booties with brownish undertone have been the absolute star of this capsule! I loved wearing them with every outfit and they were also super comfortable. Some of you have asked where to buy them, but unfortunately I cannot find them online. I do offer a list of other great booties here.
Hopefully this illustrated to you that flat shoes can be worn with a variety of outfits and you can still look chic and modern with flat shoes.
Of course, I’m not saying that you would need to wear the same shoes with every outfit! On the contrary. It’s fun to vary your shoes and you can often transform an outfit with a special pair. The skirt and dress outfits for example would probably look even nicer with heels.
What this exercize did illustrate though is that you do not necessarily NEED a lot of shoes. Again, choose wisely so your shoes can last the distance.
Thanks to all of you who participated in the challenge in the private members forum. I will share a few more of your outfits on my Facebook page.
