Simplicity with a Capsule Wardrobe

Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.

-Coco Chanel

In the past few months, I have had the incredible pleasure of presenting my styling workshop. “Confidently Styled”, where I’ve been able to share invaluable styling tips with groups of amazing women. One topic that has consistently struck a chord with these groups is the concept of the Capsule wardrobe. 

In our fast-paced lives, simplicity is something we all yearn for, and it can start right in our closets. The Capsule wardrobe a way to simplify what is in your closet and have versatile pieces that can be integrated from season to season. Everything will go together so you don’t have to think too much and can get dressed quickly. 

Think of your capsule as your foundation and classic pieces. This is where you invest your money. When you start with a great foundation, you tend to spend less and only need a few pieces each season. It will save you money as you begin to shop with intention!

You end up with every single piece in your closet as ones you love to wear right now. This makes getting dressed and shopping so much easier and intentional. This will also free up your mental space so that you can spend time on things that really matter.

And just like you would stock your pantry with staples, your closet should have these basic pieces to make numerous outfits with ease:


 A great black or navy blazer will uplevel any outfit from jeans and a t-shirt to a white button up and wide leg trousers. You can go high end with Veronica Beard or find other great options at JCrew. This is an investment piece that you will wear again and again.

Bonus - add a denim and leather jacket, so versatile and goes with everything!





Pick a simple one that is either a crew neck or V-neck whichever is best for you, I love cashmere. You can pick a neutral color or this can also be a great place to add stripes or a pop of color. This can be worn with jeans, under a blazer, or even over a dress.



I have this leopard belt shown from JCrew that I have worn a ton. You can take a simple outfit and make it pop. Belts are really not to be worn for function and more of a statement piece.



A great pair of pants can take you to the office and then worn with a t-shirt and sneaker for the weekends.



White is a classic but you can add black, navy, or any color that suits your style!



Have two pairs that are simple and either flare or a straight cut that hits at the ankle. No holes or embellishments (you can add those in but they are not a staple). Pick a blue and black.

Bonus - A denim midi skirt is a modern twist.




These need to be replaced every year. You can find very good quality at JCrew and Madewell and not break the bank. If you want to splurge a bit, my favorite hands down are the ATM crew. Go with either crew or V-neck in a few colors to be worn alone or layered.



A great loafer, white tennis shoes, and a nude heel are the basics. I rarely wear heels and found a great Sam Edelman slingback that I love.



Let’s embark on a journey of simplicity and style as we explore the wonders of a simple capsule closet. You will have clothes that you love, and always want to wear no matter the day or the occasion. Each season you can add a few on trend colorful pieces to embrace your unique style!

Let's step into Spring with ease, grace, and simplicity. The new season brings hope and newness to our lives. I look forward to helping you clear the clutter, maximize your wardrobe, shine a little brighter, and feel fabulous every day!!
