12 Items = 30 Outfits | Capsule Wardrobe for Casual, Dressy & Work

Wednesday, March 22, 2017




And the capsule wardrobe strikes again! I shared a few days ago on how I really love the idea of a more simple closet, and am doing some hardcore research into what pieces work for me. It was requested from my wonderful subscribers to do a lookbook featuring a capsule wardrobe... so I challenged myself to the task!

The 12 items I use in the video is really similar to the ones I mention in my last post, and I was totally shocked at how many looks I could create with these pieces. Although I have more than these 12 items in my wardrobe, this video really proves that I could do a ton with a lot less. Having a limited amount of items that are versatile is also really helpful when it comes to traveling (can you imagine travelling with only 12 clothing items in your suitcase? What a dream.)

How did I make 12 items work for 30(!!!) different looks? See here:




Items listed 

(I will have similar items linked in the video's description box if I can't find the exact ones, but will list items without links here)

1. Men's Crewneck Sweater - Walmart 
2. Jeans - Seven for All Mankind "Kimmie Crop"
3. Leather Leggings - Aritzia 
4. Moto Jacket - Zara
5. Denim Jacket - The Gap
6. Fitted Turtleneck - Club Monaco
7. Fitted Grey Tee - The Gap
8. Bodycon Black Midi Dress - Zara
9. Nude Pump - Manolo Blahnik
10. White Sneakers - Adidas
11. Black Chelsea Boot - Michael Kors 
12. Black Belt with Gold Hardware - Gucci (vintage)

This is an ongoing process, but I'm really happy where it's at right now. I still have a ton of stuff on my closet instagram @rachspeedcloset available if you're looking to pick up a few cute things on a budget! 

Love Always, 

Rachel
