I enjoyed helping a friend “shop her closet” and find new outfits within her wardrobe. It’s easy to fall into a routine of wearing the same looks over and over again. Challenge yourself and consider pairing different items together. You’d be surprised by the outfits you can create!
When shopping for Jamila, I wanted to find pieces that would work together as a group. Not knowing my client’s wardrobe, I went for classic pieces that were sophisticated with a personal flair.
To maximize the budget for this wardrobe, I shopped sales at Gap, Banana Republic, and DSW. I chose a fiery red dress, cream tie-neck blouse, a pink sweater, and black tuxedo ankle pants. I also took a risk and chose an army green pea coat with a black flocked floral pattern at the bottom. For shoes, I thought a green snake-skin print pump would be a classy but edgy touch as well as some nude suede booties.
If you could choose pieces for a capsule wardrobe for winter, what would you choose?
