Closet Raid: {Another} 30 Day Capsule Wardrobe Using Just 10 Items

10 Item Capsule Wardobe{Comme des Garcons Striped Tee, Uniqlo Button-Down Tunic Blouse and Polka Dot Leggings Pants, H&M Denim Shirt, Prabal Gurung x Target Shirtdress, Ralph Lauren Short-Sleeve Sweater, 7 for All Mankind Cardigan, J. Crew Black Flippy Skirt and Blue No. 2 Pencil Skirt, Old Navy Rockstar Skinny Jeans}

Yessir, it’s time for another 30-day outfit roundup featuring just 10 items of clothing.  This time around, I decided to give myself a little more leeway with shoes and accessories.  In case you missed the first go ’round, here’s a few tips on how you can create your own 10-item capsule wardrobe:

  1. Pick your favorite pair of jeans.  I went with bright red skinnies to switch things up a bit.
  2. Choose a color scheme.
  3. Pick 3 additional bottoms (pants, skirts, shorts, whatever floats your boat).
  4. Pick out a fabulous dress that can be worn different ways.  Last time I chose a trench dress, and this time around I went with a rainbow-colored shirtdress.
  5. Toss in a cardigan or blazer (or two).
  6. Last, but not least, choose 3-4 tops that match with all of your bottoms.

One final note: go crazy with accessories, if you want!  Scarves and belts can be total game changers.

    Nifty idea! And well executed 🙂

    It’s amazing how much versatility you have out of just a few pieces. This is definitely inspiring me to play around and remix clothes I already have.

      Pretty cool, right? I’ll have to remember this the next time I complain about not having anything to wear, lol.

  • ClosetConfections November 13, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    Absolutely! I may wind up using this as my packing list for Christmas vacay.

    Ahh seeing your Prabal Gurung top has made me spend loads on ebay ahah, I don’t think he sells in the UK, and his designs are so cute, that I just had to get some <3

    Love your site. Can you provide details on the leopard clutch?

    • ClosetConfections February 4, 2014 at 12:49 am

      I purchased it from back in 2011, and unfortunately it’s no longer available. I’ll let you know if I spot something similar. I did a quick search but couldn’t find anything this size at a reasonable price, bur you might be able to find a smaller bag.

      • YesMsPerry February 4, 2014 at 6:21 am

        Thanks for the prompt response.

  • Meeky February 5, 2014 at 1:34 pm

    I love your 10-pc capsule wardrobes! My favorite thing about them is you don’t choose all black and grey, like most websites. You are very good about picking pops of color. I am planning to visit Europe for the first time this fall and I will be trying to build a 10-pc wardrobe of my own. So far I have one pair of jeans and grass green skirt and a periwinkle blue sleeveless blouse that all look nice together. Yippee! Plus, since I know I’ll only need 10 pcs, I don’t feel so bad if I find something that fits great but is a little expensive. Thanks for making this feel so do-able.

      You are very welcome. Have a fun and safe trip!

  • Meg February 11, 2014 at 4:15 am

    Just saw this via Pinterest and LOVE it! Can you tell me where you got the white shirt – it’s a great length for tucking in and wearing over leggings!

    • ClosetConfections February 11, 2014 at 8:20 am

      Glad you enjoyed this post. The write shirt is from Uniqlo.

    Ps did you do a summer version? Am finding a capsule wardrobe much harder during summer because you can’t layer as much…

    • ClosetConfections February 11, 2014 at 8:21 am

      No, I haven’t done a summer version yet. But I’ll get to it when I do my wardrobe switch in a few months.
