This checklist is a good template for a basic starter work wardrobe. (Even though I created this for my maternity capsule wardrobe it works just as well for anyone with regard to mixing & matching.) I had a few requests to update the header on this checklist so people could pin it as a starter capsule wardrobe without looking like they were expecting - so here's the updated graphic. :)

Here's how I put together my starter business capsule wardrobe -
- Basics - First step was putting together the basics pieces to
lay the foundation for the wardrobe. I
tried to choose very basic, very re-wearable clothes. Clothes that I
knew I would be wearing over and
over so they would need to be simple enough that they coordinated with
everything else in the capsule and I didn't get bored if I wore them
multiple times a week for weeks on end.
For the basics in this capsule wardrobe I chose two pairs of pants (bootcut & ankle), two simple tanks, a pencil skirt and a simple black suit jacket.
For this set of interest pieces I picked three dresses, a striped skirt, three cardigans and three fun blouses.
For this capsule wardrobe I chose three necklaces, one scarf and one gold watch. For shoes I picked a basic pair of black wedges.
