Before you can begin building a capsule wardrobe, you need to have a strong foundation. This week I’d like to talk about some workhorse basic bottoms – the pants and skirts that can be worn again and again and will act as the basis of your capsule. While you don’t need ALL of these pieces to start a capsule, you will find it easier if you have at least three or four of them. As basics that will get a lot of repeat wear, I’d keep details clean and minimal. We’ll get to some fun stuff a bit later!
Perhaps surprisingly, I’ve come to rely on Target’s C9 line as my workout wear of choice. It’s super-reasonably priced, offers a great weight and coverage (unlike those transparent numbers of the 2013 Lululemon debacle) and hold up well to countless washing. Target refreshes the line multiple times throughout the year providing a steady supply of new prints and colors. Old Navy also makes cute, inexpensive active wear pieces.
Currently the C9 line is running at 25% off prices below with code SAVE25.
