How to Create a Capsule Wardrobe in Minutes (To Kill it at the Office!)
Have you ever felt stuck in a rut with what you wear to work?
Or do you have such an eclectic style that its difficult to choose what to wear each morning as you've got too much to choose from?
A great tip that I once learnt from a stylist friend, was to take a piece that you adore and style your outfit around it. If you have a starting point, ideas come together much more easily.
To show you how this works, we've taken the black leather Lilian Petite handbag to create three office styles to inspire you. Each is comfortable, stylish and on trend with a stand out colour palette of black, white, gold and charcoal grey.
Once you have the outfits brought together, it's easy to swap out a piece from one and fit it into another, creating another whole new look. This is because each outfit had the same starting point (the black handbag with gold fittings) which inspired the colour palette.
You could take this a step further by introducing matching and contrasting fabrics, or stand our prints and patterns (as we have done below) that make your work outfits even more effortlessly chic.
In just a few easy steps you have your own capsule wardrobe for killing it in the office!
I hope this helps - I'd love to hear what you create.
P.S. What piece from your wardrobe would you use as a starting point? I;d love to hear.
