Wardrobe Building: Capsule Foundation Bottoms

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!
