The key that I have finally discovered when it comes to dressing well each day with only a capsule wardrobe at my fingertips is to make certain each item in my closet is the best quality I can afford and is a classic piece of clothing (color, fit, etc). When each item you choose to wear fits you well and is of top quality, you don’t need more.
Choose a pair of designer jeans, a classic chambray shirt and nude ballet flats, and you are walking out the door in confidence in minutes. Or slip on a beautifully tailored sheath dress, black pumps and carry a classic handbag. Once you are confident in what you wear, you can pay it no mind and go about the business of the day.
