I sat last night and put together as many outfits as I could from the Basic Work Capsule Wardrobe in my last post. I managed to get 40 different outfits (1 long collage at the top of the post and 3 down below) with room to make more. The point of this workwear list was to show you how you can find your own work wardrobe by using many pieces that you already have in your everyday wardrobe. Because realistically how many of us can afford to buy a whole new work wardrobe before you start a new job? Yeah, no. Maybe a few new pieces to freshen up what you have, but most people have to wait for a few pay checks before they can afford any more substantial wardrobe updates. Even then there is a chance that it might not be affordable for you depending on your expenses to income ratio. As women we can usually find a skirt or two, a few sweaters in styles and colours sweaters, a dressy blouse (maybe more than one), plain t-shirts, black pants, and a pair of dressy heels. All of these items can be put together to give you a basic work wardrobe. With the pieces from this list I made 40 outfits, so that means almost 2 months of not repeating the exact same outfit. I say that is pretty good ;)
What is your go-to professional work look?
