It’s a myth that a capsule wardrobe needs to choose between “tan/brown” or “gray/black”. Instead the colors you choose to go with them really shape what you are able to do.
Today’s capsule started with a teal sweater and a tan dress. So often my go-to with teal is gray, so I wanted to explore what it would look like with other colors. Turns out navy and tan are great alternatives!
Our Favorite Combinations
There are many ways to combine these items. Here are a few of our favorites.
Start simple by combining 2 pieces at a time then add an accessory. Once you’ve got these combinations down add a third piece.
I’m always amazed at how an outfit changes when a top is tucked in vs left out. Too curvy when you tuck in? Try a cardigan over top.
Sleeveless dresses in winter usually mean you need a cardigan or jacket over top. But for a change up, try layering a sweater or button-up top under your dress.
Why wear one top under your cardigan when you can wear two. For chilly winter days there is nothing better than double cardigans.
