Capsule Wardrobe Starter Pack: 10 Vintage Inspired Pieces

Last week, we discussed how to facilitate creating new capsules every three months by selecting a STARTER PACK. Ten or so pieces that can travel with you on your capsule wardrobe journey as the calendar pages flick by. That way, you can simply round out each season with the appropriate extras. Think: lots of tees and tanks for Summer, pretty sundresses for Spring, and tights and cardigans to bundle up in Winter.

I decided it might be fun to showcase a few starter pack examples for three different vibes: CLASSIC, VINTAGE INSPIRED, and WHIMSICAL. And of course I turned to one of my favorite sources for gorgeous, well-fitting pieces — MODCLOTH. Use these 10 Piece Starter packs as a guide to help you build your own. What do you have in your closet? What staple items might you be missing? And then each season, GET CREATIVE. Build out your capsule with your favorite pieces for the season!

This week, 10 Vintage Inspired Pieces

  1. Mad Men meets #ladyboss in this LBD.
  2. All the benefits of a poncho but in a versatile jean jacket fabric.
  3. A friendship bracelet inspired watch makes for playful arm candy.
  4. These bold earrings add an element of funk.
  5. Can’t go wrong with this pencil black skirt.
  6. The more beads the better with this chunky statement necklace.
  7. A graphic tee that all the bibliophiles can get behind.
  8. This blouse rocks a classic vintage color.
  9. Ripped jeans give a well-worn look even when brand new.
  10. A bold tribal print makes a maxi dress statement.

Would any of these pieces make the cut for YOUR Starter Pack? Do you have any capsule wardrobe tips & tricks? Leave ’em below! xoxo

And tune in next week for a WHIMSICAL CAPSULE WARDROBE STARTER PACK!

Capsule Wardrobe Starter Pack: 10 Classic Pieces

capsule wardrobe starter pieces

I’ve previously posted about my all-season capsule wardrobe. A collection of 50 items that can take you from Winter to Summer, casual picnic to black tie affair (and everything in between). But what if you want to go the season-by-season route?

One easy way to facilitate creating new capsules every three months is to select your STARTER PACK. Ten or so pieces that can travel with you on your capsule wardrobe journey as the calendar pages flick by. That way, you can simply round out each season with the appropriate extras. Think: lots of tees and tanks for Summer, pretty sundresses for Spring, and tights and cardigans to bundle up in Winter.

A Whimsical Round-Up

Honestly feeling too tired today to do anything but Google whimsical woodland gentlemen. And wouldn’t it be a little selfish of me to NOT share my findings? Obvi.

Here are 5 items you should probably purchase if you, like me, low-key wanted to marry David the Gnome when you were little because his main form of transportation was a FOX and he slept in a cupboard!

David the Gnome Tea Towel – $8.00

The More You Gnome Zen Garden – $29.99

Gnome Planner Stickers – $2.75

Rolling With the Gnomies Mug – $14.99

Cheeky Gnome Wrapping Paper – 5 sheets for $15 

Now I really want to DIY a dupe for that gnome zen garden. Maybe Dollar Tree still has fairy garden accessories for sale.

Ok, time to return to productivity and the far-less-whimsical real world. But no need for you to do the same! In fact, go ahead and click the “David the Gnome” link up top. You’ll be rewarded with 26 episodes of gnome shenanigans! You’re welcome.

Winter Wardrobe Pieces

l7qzmu9kt4e-ezra-jeffrey
Guys! Do you rotate your wardrobe seasonally — tucking away your summer tank-tops in a bottom drawer once the weather turns and pulling down big, floofy sweaters from a plastic tub at the top of your closet? While my clothes will never be that organized, I love the idea of reserving a few, special pieces for each season. Those items that stand the test of time, tucked away for the rest of the year, just waiting for their moment to shine. You’d pull them out when the moment is right and feel nostalgia and excitement for the impending weather change. While this may seem like a hard task to invoke excitement for winter weather, here are 9 pieces from ModCloth that just might fit the bill…
Modcloth Forever Pieces

(Clockwise from top left.)

Cat Sweater … for a bit of whimsy as you bundle up tight. ($49.99)

Pointed Ballet Flats … to tuck under your desk so you can slip them on once you’ve shed your morning commute snow-boots. ($49.99)

Slouch Hat … so your noggin stays stylishly warm. ($14.99)

Gemstone Earrings … for a touch of femininity that won’t get covered up by your giant parka. ($7.99)

Pleated Purple Sweater … to layer on top of all your favorite blouses. ($39.99)

Circle Scarf … because who needs a necklace when you’ve got such a dainty scarf?! ($14.99)

Floral & Lacy Undies Set … for feeling like a babe even when you’re wearing approximately 22 layers of clothing on top. ($6.99 for panties, $13.99 for bralette)

Thigh High Socks … a colorful way to add warmth. ($12.99)

Moisturizing Lipstick … to finish off all your winter weather looks. ($24.99)
