Today introducing a new series, 'the capsule wardrobe'. In the upcoming episodes, I will put outfits together from the clothes featured in the collage below, and much like a kaleidoscope, come up with different combinations, accessorized in different ways.
I chose those twenty two capsule pieces, because they are my current most trusted and loved wardrobe staples, clothes that I enjoy putting on and which have never let me down. They are a mix of high end and low, and have one defining element in common, their colors, fabrics and shapes work with my frame and skintone, which is why I feel comfortable and happy wearing them.
These staples can be mixed and matched in endless combinations, and because of their simplicity, they are a perfect canvas for accessories. Adding a scarf, necklace, bracelet and/or bag is my favorite part of getting dressed. I feel these touches bring my clothes to life in a very personal way, as they are a reflection of my mood and my surroundings.
This new series will be strewn in admist the H it Up , Joie de Vivre and other posts. It should be fun, and I hope you will enjoy!
