There are many great reasons to have a work capsule wardrobe. For one, it saves a ton of money using 10-15 pieces to create 30+ outfits you can wear all season. Second, you can avoid having a closet full of clothes that you never wear. Third, you can easily pack half of these pieces in a carry on and have an entire week or two worth of outfits for vacation, business trips, you name it. Capsule wardrobes are the BEST. If you haven’t tried one yet, I’m here to turn you into a believer.

The Work Capsule Wardrobe
For my work capsule wardrobe, I picked colors that could intermix with each other and not clash. The color palette I chose is black, white, grey, pink-y colors, dark green, and navy blue. When you choose a color palette with complimenting colors, it makes creating a capsule wardrobe effortless because everything will go well together. I stuck with 15 items because I truly didn’t need any more items to create plenty of looks in my wardrobe.
To be honest, I could’ve created even more than 33 looks in this work capsule wardrobe, but my sweet, amazing husband was taking all the pictures for me and I didn’t want to make him hate me by the end of the evening lol. So 33 pictures/outfit changes was enough 🙂
Let’s take a look at all the outfits I created!

And there you have it!
It’s not difficult at all to create a work capsule wardrobe that you can use all year round. I’m a 3rd grade teacher, so my outfits are practical for an elementary school setting. You may choose to create a dressier work capsule wardrobe, or maybe even more casual than mine (hello, jeans and leggings). It’s all up to you how you’d like to create your own wardrobe. The key is sticking to a color palette that compliments each other and you’re good to go. Enjoy your capsule wardrobe and ALL the space you’ll now have in your closet! 🙂

Save Money with My Favorite FREE Apps and Resources:
Ibotta is my favorite cash back app that I use on my phone to earn cash back whenever I go shopping.
It includes my favorite stores, like Amazon, Target, Costco, Fred Meyer, and Walmart. All you have to do is add items from your recent shopping trip on the app, scan your receipt, and earn instant cash back!
Ebates is my favorite whenever I’m online shopping because I earn cash back from online purchases.
For example, if Ebates is offering 10% cash back for shopping at Target and my order total is $100, I’ll get $10 cash back. Amazing right?!
The easiest way to use Ebates is by downloading their cash back button (after you sign up for free with Ebates and earn your first $10 just for using my link.) Simply click the Ebates cash back button that will pop up on the store website, make your purchase, and Ebates will deposit your cash back into your Ebates account! It would be crazy NOT to use it and earn money back on all your online shopping.
MyPoints is my favorite way to earn Amazon gift cards and AMC movie theater gift cards in my spare time while watching a show or movie. MyPoints is an online rewards program that gives you points for taking surveys, reading e-mails, shopping, doing web searches, and more.
Once you earn a certain amount of points, you can redeem them for a gift card of your choice to over 75 merchants. They also offer free access to coupons to hundreds of different merchants daily.
I’ve already earned 3 $25 AMC gift cards and a $50 Amazon gift card just by using MyPoints while watching Netflix. Sign up and start earning free gift cards here.
