The answer is simple. She is the proud owner of a capsule wardrobe -- a small but versatile collection of clothes designed to take her from the office to a night out with the gals. Here's how you can develop your own capsule wardrobe and create a multitude of outfits from a few well chosen staples.
Start by choosing a base color. This can be gray, black, white, or navy. Ensure that 75 percent of your wardrobe is made up of plain-colored clothing, and the remaining 25 percent is in prints.
Limit the number of dresses you have. Instead, concentrate on accumulating a collection of separates.
Most of us wear only 20 percent of our clothes, 80 percent of the time. If this applies to you, it's time to get ruthless. Clear out and give away all the clothes you have not worn in the past six months.
If you live in a seasonal area, pack away a few essential items that you know you will wear later in the year. Clearing space in the closet is essential for creating your new capsule wardrobe (not to mention good karma).
Consider your lifestyle. Are you a stay-at-home mom or high-flying career girl? Do you work outdoors on in? Design your wardrobe with your circumstances in mind.
Now the fun begins! Go shopping with a list of items needed to create your limited-edition re-invention.
Steer away from the items you have already. Remember: The aim of this type of shopping is to purchase a few well-made classic pieces that will cover all eventualities.
So what are the actual, essential eight pieces necessary to start your new wardrobe?
