Amazon Capsule Wardrobe

Hi friends!  Happy Friday! It’s been such a busy week here, maybe because it was short? All I know is that I’m really looking forward to the weekend again.  Even though I’m sad that the kids aren’t able to participate in sports this year, it IS nice to have weekends free and not be tied to commitments.  I guess we all have to look on the bright side these days.

Today’s post is an Amazon capsule wardrobe, which has been highly requested by many of you.  I know that we all get in fashion ruts and it’s helpful to get new ideas for how to mix and match pieces in your wardrobe.

The idea of a capsule wardrobe is to have a few key pieces that are versatile enough to wear on repeat, in different ways.  There’s no magic number of items you have to limit your capsule wardrobe to, but there is a popular Project 333 where the founder, Courtney Carver challenged herself to wear just 33 items of clothing (including clothing, accessories, jewelry, outerwear and shoes, not counting things like undergarments) for 3 months.

That may be something you want to try, or not.  I think the idea sounds intriguing and if I’m being honest with myself, I tend to reach for many things on repeat and I bet I could choose 33 things to wear for 3 months if I had to.

The goal is to help streamline your clothing so that you are left with things that fit, you feel good in, and you don’t have to give so much thought and energy to what to wear each day.  If I remember right, no one at Courtney’s work even realized she was wearing just 33 things for 3 months!  Isn’t that something?!  We care so much more about how we look than anyone else does!

AMAZON CAPSULE WARDROBE

The capsule wardrobe I created is just an idea to get you started.  It consists of 4 tops, 3 bottoms, 1 dress and 3 layering pieces – along with shoes and jewelry.   With those pieces, I came up with 15 outfits!  You can also add in accessories and bags to create different looks.

For Size Reference: I’m a shorty (5’1) and petite, weighing about 110.  I typically wear size 0p/25 jeans, XS in tops and dresses.  Lots of times the smallest size on Amazon is a Small, so in that case, that’s what I ordered.

STRIPED TOP OUTFITS

The first items I picked for this capsule are my go-to high waist skinny jeans and striped long sleeve top.  The jeans are so good!  They’re made with lots of stretch and yet hold their shape comfortably all day.  They have a comfortable high waist and no gaping in the back.  I love that they come in regular, long and short lengths.

This top is versatile and goes with so many things.  It’s nice and stretchy with a perfect neckline (not too high or low) and functional buttons.  The sleeves can easily be worn down or scrunched up.  It comes in several solid colors too.

A sherpa vest is not only functional for keeping you warm, it makes a great layering piece and adds visual interest to your outfit. This one is particularly well made, with a zip front, cozy fleece material and pockets.

I didn’t count this as an extra outfit, but adding a scarf also adds a pop of color and pattern to your outfit and makes it look like something new.

I’m crazy for this cargo style military jacket.  I’ve had this one for several years now and get so much wear out of it! It’s got durable hardware (zippers and snaps) and has a drawstring waist that you can cinch for a better fit. It comes in tons of color and is on sale now!

A good tee or tank is always a Must Have in your capsule wardrobe.  I’m wearing the tank here, but the tee is also great quality, nice and stretchy and last throughout many, many washes and wears.

To turn this top into an office appropriate outfit, pair it with your paperbag waist pants.  I love these pants so much because they are dressy, but beyond comfortable.  They just pull on without a button or zipper and it comes with the tie belt.  They come in several colors and I have the blue-grey and camel.

Stripes and leopard is always a fun combo!

GINGHAM TOP OUTFITS

I wanted to include a button down top so you had workwear and casual options.  I like this top because of the fun gingham print, but also the feminine cut, and single pocket detail.  It comes in solids, dots, and stripes.  It’s 100% cotton and machine washable.

You can also tie your top at the waist and wear it over your dress or wrap it around the waist.

This t-shirt dress has been a go-to for years!  It’s so easy to throw on over your head and look put together with just one item of clothing.  Then, you can layer the outerwear, while changing out the shoes and accessories for more outfits.

I like these leggings because they are seamless on the sides, meaning no seams running down your leg, so they are ultra smooth!  They also have a high waist with added tummy control!

    This is a great post! I have all the items or similar already, so have lots of practical ideas for outfits. If we ever get back to normal! (Got my first vaccination yesterday, so there’s hope!) Downsizing from a big house to a pretty little one, so I’ll need to consolidate my wardrobe!
