Everybody loves the idea of having a functional capsule wardrobe right? It makes life so much easier when you have things in your wardrobe that go with lots of other things! (That’s the basis of a capsule wardrobe really.)

BUT for some people, the thought of having to put a capsule wardrobe together seems like a lot of hard work, and quite a daunting task.

As a personal stylist, putting together a capsule wardrobe is one of the most fun and rewarding parts of my job! It’s like a little jigsaw puzzle tailored to you. What pieces do you need, what colours work for you and what combinations can we create?

So lucky for both you and me, Farmers has asked me to create a workwear capsule wardrobe from their gorgeous Autumn/Winter collections. Yay!

So here are the fabulous pieces I’ve picked to create our capsule wardrobe…..

HOW I PICKED THE PIECES IN THE CAPSULE WARDROBE.

  1.  I looked for colours that complement each other. Mostly cool tones that will work well with black.
  2. I chose a combination of prints and plain block colours also work well together.
  3. I though about how many tops vs bottoms vs jackets vs dresses would actually be useful in a wardrobe.
  4. I had a play around with several combinations to get it right – don’t be scared to try a few times to get it right!

NOW WE MAKE THE OUTFITS

This is the fun part! Let’s put the different outfits together to create different looks.

These first looks are for you if your workplace (or your personal style) calls for something quite classic with simple lines and classic pieces worked back in different combinations.

These next combos are perfect for you if you want to add some spunk to your workplace looks. They would also work if you have a more creative job, or a more relaxed (but still professional) workplace. 3_Farmers funky professional looks (capsule wardrobe)

This third bunch of looks is perfect for that smart/casual workplace, or for casual Fridays in your corporate job. I love these outfits! So many fun looks to choose from!
