one suitcase checklist: summer business casual capsule wardrobe



Final Summer Business Casual post - the checklist! (Original post with me wearing the outfits here.)

Here's how I put together my summer business casual capsule wardrobe-

The method:
Basics - First I pick some basics pieces to lay the foundation for the capsule wardrobe. I try to pick my favorite go-to clothes. Clothes I know I wear over and over. The ones that go with almost everything. For this capsule, I picked light neutrals and one pair of black pants.
The basics in this capsule wardrobe I chose are a grey blazer, white blazer, white tie-neck blouse, white jeans and trusty black ankle pants.








        Interest - Second, I add a few interesting pieces to compliment the subtle basics. I look for pops of color or fun patterns or even texture that will make the basic pieces more exciting. I try to grab items that will compliment each other or at least be somewhat in the same color scheme. For this capsule I tried to stick to purples, blues and greens.

        For this set of interest pieces I picked two print blouses, two print dresses, a bright aqua pencil skirt, a purple cardigan and a olive green shirt.







        Accessories & Shoes - Finally, I add some accessories to complete the outfits. Jewelry, belts and scarves can dramatically alter how an outfit looks. Unfortunately, shoes is the area I still struggle with. I always want to bring just one more pair.

        For this capsule wardrobe I chose three necklaces, one gold bracelet, a watch, and two belts.  For shoes I added two pairs of pumps and a nude pair of wedges.
