If you want to know, here are some details on the capsule pieces I chose and my rationale for them.
- 16-looks with the magenta skirt
- 19-looks with the dark charcoal wool pants
- 15-looks with the navy blue tipped wool dress
- 21-looks with the navy blue skinny slim fit trousers
- 15-looks with the striped trench dress
All of these looks below are based around one piece in the original capsule list with 18 pieces!
….& 3 pairs of shoes
…featuring this MM Lafleur Soho Skirt:
Shown below: 12 looks
But I could have added another 8 more looks with some simple tops mixed with toppers or other styles you’ve seen earlier:
|Outfit 1||Outfit 2||Outfit 3|
|Outfit 4||Outfit 5||Outfit 6|
|Outfit 7||Outfit 8||Outfit 9|
Belts can help block off an outfit
The outfit was okay before, but it looked very unfinished, until an obi belt was able to tie in the yellow & grey from the top, to tie it all together.
Use the dress as a top and as a topper
Have the skirt peek out from underneath the dress, as well as a top (button it up to the waist), and then use the belt to ground it and nip in the waist.
Try colour-blocking with a topper
The outfit (for me) looks great with the magenta skirt peeking out, but you can colour-block with another colour on top as well, to add even more of a pop.
Use a belt to add colour to a more neutral look
A belt can add interest to something.
Belt the topper!
It looked great open with pants, but looks much better belted when it is a skirt.
For reference here is that look with the same dress as a topper, and it looks much better open rather than belted:
Liked this? Let me know! I can do more if there is an interest.
P.S. All of my other capsule wardrobes (but none with real-life shots like this yet), are here.
