First and foremost, a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few key apparel pieces that never go out of style. Donna Karan, a renowned American fashion designer, introduced capsule wardrobes with her ground-breaking capsule collection of seven interchangeable workday pieces published in 1985.

What are the best tops to choose from?

Use a Button-Down Blouse in a Neutral Color.

Spend money on a silk blouse in a neutral color like black, navy, white, cream, or grey. For a classy pairing, tuck this classic blouse into a pencil skirt or pair it with trousers and pointed-toe heels.

Blouse in a Solid Color Adds Vibrancy

Find the right blouse for your body type and stock up on solid-colored blouses in skin-tone-friendly colors.

Knit Sweaters Keep You Warm

It’s critical to remain warm in the cold. To remain warm at work, add one (or three) exceptionally soft knit sweaters to your outfit.


A black blazer is the working capsule wardrobe’s MVP, taking any outfit from basic to boss. Look for a blazer that fits snugly across the shoulders but doesn’t tug or limit your arms when shopping for a new one. On all body types, the tapered fit (at the natural waistline) is figure-flattering.

Apply a Trench Coat over top.

A classy trench coat is a timeless accessory that can boost any 9-5 outfit. Combine it with a sleek LBD, heels or flats, and an on-trend accent to complete the outfit.


Pencil Skirts are a great way to dress up.

Pencil skirts complement the shape and can be worn in a variety of ways to keep your workplace looking fresh. Keep both a solid and a patterned pencil skirt in your closet for endless possibilities. A traditional moto jacket or a pop-of-color blazer can give your outfit a current feel.

Neutral Trousers will keep you grounded.

Classic pants that fit perfectly are a real working workhorse. Choose a hue that is adaptable, such as black, brown, or navy. For a suit-like look, pair your pants with a tailored jacket in the same hue. Wear yours with a bright-colored shirt and boots or heels


Wrap Dresses are a great way to add some flair to your outfit.
Why do wrap dresses look so good on everyone? It has a universally pleasing impact for all body shapes thanks to the tie-waist that tightens on the slimmest section of the torso. Choose a bold-colored fake or traditional wrap dress that makes you feel like you can take on the world.

Keep It Classic with an LBD

The LBD (Little Black Dress) is a must-have for both casual and professional capsule wardrobes. This statement item has unequaled flexibility, taking you from coffee to drinks in one twist. Wear your LBD with a colorful jacket and ballerina flats throughout the day. Swap your flats for heels and your jacket for a glittering statement necklace for happy hour. Finish the ensemble with a classic moto coat in a rich material like fake suede if you need a late-night layer.

You may go ahead and be fashionable at work now that we’ve shown you what to stock for a working capsule wardrobe, even if you just have a few items (keep the others for your night out). Make sure you’re comfortable with what you’re wearing because you’ll be wearing it for 8 hours a day. Let us know what you think of our working wardrobe capsule in the comments…
