Continuing on last week’s capsule wardrobe theme, today we’ll focus on foundation tops. Again, you don’t need ALL of these pieces for a capsule, but it’s easier to get started if you have at least a few of them.
With foundation items, I recommend buying the best you can afford. An exception to this would be white camis and tees as most people I know replace them often. As with our basic bottoms, keep details clean and somewhat minimal. At this stage we are working on versatility. Remember to stay true to your primary color palette. If your go-to dark is black, don’t buy navy tees/sweaters and vice versa. Charcoals and greys fit in nicely with both navy and black color palettes for mid-tone neural pieces.
Last night we had our second to last holiday party of the 2016 season. When did these things start rolling into the new year?
I wore an outfit that I received from my mother-in-law this Christmas. She got me the Mango Velvet Dress featured in this post and I thought it could be fun to show how I re-styled it for this event. The dress code was business/cocktail (confusing, right?) so for a look that was much less boho than the original, I paired the dress with a crystal Y-necklace (LOVE! – also gift from mother-in-law), crystal earrings and a heeled stretch leather black boot.
