Whether you’re looking to channel being a cool supermom, a retired diva, or a stylish professional, you can save time and money by creating a capsule wardrobe. (L-R: JP Yim/Getty Images for NYFW: The Shows; Slaven Vlasic/Getty Images; ANGELA WEISS/AFP via Getty Images)
Now that you’ve cleaned up your closets and left the clutter zone, let’s explore the ways you can rebuild your wardrobe the smart way.
You can play with core basics, neutrals, and accent colors. Here are three mini-collections, each with 25 pieces, which will help you define your style without cluttering your closet. The first is for newly retired women, who finally get to wear the clothes they love. The second collection is for women who are returning to work in an office environment. And the last collection is for moms on the go.
You’ve paid your dues. You’ve worked long years in the corporate world, wearing your suits and high heels, sometimes khaki pants on Fridays. You did not really have your own style then, but now it’s time to let the designer in you shine.
Capsule must-haves include kaftans (yes, we are in traveling mode), relaxed linen coordinates, denim pieces, and comfortable cotton tops. Everything is geared towards comfort. And please splurge if you can; you totally deserve it.
Joining the Workforce in Style
You were working from home but now you just got the opportunity of a lifetime—your dream job. Not only do you love what you do but the dress code is flexible. It’s the perfect opportunity to be professional but not boring. Your capsule includes brights, patterns, and fashion pieces.
I Am a Superwoman and a Cool Mom
Just because you are a stay-at-home mom doesn’t mean you have to wear sweats and hoodies. Instead, you can create a casual chic look for your day-to-day activities without sacrificing comfort. This capsule collection includes timeless basics with nice neutral colors that are seamlessly interchangeable.
