I’ve been dressing with a capsule wardrobe for the past few years now and I love it! But I’ve switched jobs and wanted to change things up! My new position has me dressing in Business Casual, a concept I had a hard time figuring out until recently I was torn between looking too fancy and too casual each day, but I think I’ve finally hit the mark.
One of my favorite things about capsule wardrobes is that you can mix and match pieces and know for certain that they will look nice together. It also takes away the stress of having to figure out what to wear each morning – which I LOVE!
Personally, I love rocking a pretty gender-neutral-leaning-towards-feminine outfit each day, which means I wear a lot of pants, tops, giant hoop earrings and loafers I also love cotton, so it was super important for me to figure out how to spruce up my cotton basic pieces to look more refined and professional! All of this together has led me to create my new Business Casual capsule wardrobe – let’s take a look!
Black short sleeve turtleneck
There is something so classic and simple about a short-sleeved black turtle(mock)neck! I love that I can wear it with my hair up, giant earrings and it looks so put together!
H&M Short sleeve black turtleneck | $17.99
The classic white tee. I love layering this under a blazer or a nice jacket for a crisp, clean look.
Target White Tee Shirt | $5.00
Black Tie Blouse
I LOVE this top – it’s a fun twist on a classic black tee! I feel so comfortable in this because it fits perfectly and looks amazing with or without a layer on top.
Nordstrom Rack Black Tie Blouse | $24.97
I love having a versatile sweater in my closet because it can get super chilly in the San Francisco springtime. This sweater allows me to look professional while staying super cozy!
H&M Tan Sweater | $44.99
Black Mock Neck
If I could wear this every day I would. There is nothing more classic than a black turtleneck and I love that I can pair it with ANY giant pair of earrings and look like a badass professional.
Black Mock Neck | $7.99
White Long Sleeve T Shirt
I love wearing a plain long sleeve on colder days underneath any blazer or nice jacket!
Abound Long Sleeve T Shirt | $6.74 (on sale)
Mid-Rise Black Rockstar Super Skinny Jeans
Ok, if you don’t have Old Navy Rockstar jeans then you are doing yourself and your legs a disservice! They are SO comfortable, stretchy and super affordable! They are my go to jean and the black denim stays a pure black even after my zillion washes.
Mid-Rise Pixie Ankle Pants (Black)
If you’re looking to take your professional wardrobe up a notch while staying comfortable, then these will be your best friend. They are stretchy, form fitting and don’t lose their shape during the day!
Mid-Rise Heathered Pixie Ankle Pants (Grey)
I had to buy these in grey, too! They look amazing paired with any of the tops mentioned above.
Susina Kellen Almond Toe Loafer (Black and Tan)
These have and will always be my favorite work shoe. The Susina loafers are sleek, classic and have comfortable inserts inside of them! I wear them pretty much every day(at my standing desk) and am always comfortable!
Susina Flat Shoes Link $49.97
Susina Blakely Suede Bootie
When I want to add a little femininity to my look, I opt for these boots. They have the same comfortable inserts as the loafers above, and I always get compliments on them!
Susina Black Boots Link $30.14
Black Rain Jacket
In the springtime we have rain showers pretty much every other week and I LOVE wearing my classic black rain jacket. It keeps me looking professional while keeping me dry.
Target Black Rain Jacket | $27.99 (on sale)
Light Pink Blazer
I love a blazer and I love a light pink one even more! I wear this layered over my t-shirts and long sleeves to enhance my basic pieces. It also allows me to show off my favorite color!
H&M Fitted Blazer | $16.99 (on sale)
I love wearing this blazer over literally any top in my capsule wardrobe. It takes each piece and amplifies it to the badass business professional vibe I love.
H&M Jacket with Gathered Sleeves | $34.99
I love wearing big earrings to accent my simple outfits! My gold hoops are a staple in my wardrobe and I can pair them with any combination of pieces!
Target Gold Hoops | $7.99
Just like the gold hoops, my silver hoops are part of my every day look. I love that when I inevitably put my hair in a bun at the end of the day, these babies have their time to shine!
Target Silver Hoops | $7.99
White Strap Watch
I love having a watch because not only does it make me look and feel more professional, but I don’t always have to rely on my phone for the time!
Anne Klein Ivory Leather Strap Watch | $65.00
I love capsule wardrobes because they allow me to express my personal style without causing me the stress of picking out what to wear each morning. I can wake up and know that any piece I pick will look nice with the others! It takes a while to par down a wardrobe, but it is SO worth it. I love waking up knowing that I will look and feel my best.
