Based on the pieces from last post Fall/Winter Workwear Capsule Wardrobe Business Casual I put together 30 outfit ideas. There is definitely a lot more different combinations that can be made, 30 is just a good start. These options are based on a work business casual environment that has casual jean Fridays. Under the dresses I would wear some black tights to still keep a professional look while remaining weather appropriate.
I suggested that you start right from the bottom of your wardrobe all the way to the top to see how many items you already own that would work in your professional wardrobe. It is surprising how many pieces you can transition over to look completely different paired with the right pieces. I give a quick breakdown on how you can do this in 5 steps in this post.
While many people have a completely separate work wardrobe from weekend wardrobe I like to integrate them together as much as you can because it can save you money and give you a lot more outfit options. Along with your work capsule you still need your accessories and seasonal pieces like scarves, winter hats, gloves, and winter boots. These are necessary items if you live in an area that experiences a colder winter season.
Is your work wardrobe and weekend wardrobe separate or integrated?
