Although I know I’ll never have a capsule wardrobe, I like to break my wardrobe down into mini-collections. I like to think that if/when we get back to international travel, I’ll have my wardrobe down pat and will easily be able to put together a comfortable travel wardrobe which all pair with each other.
My 7-piece capsule wardrobe
I like that the blue of the chambray basically reads as a neutral and can be worn with basically any colour without issue. Any of the tops can be worn alone with the pants (the dress can also be worn sans jacket), which means that these 7-pieces can easily become 10 different combinations.
Below, you can see 3 of the tops worn with Glebe Pants, and then also worn with the Belmore Jacket over the top. Above, you can see my favourite pink linen Waikerie worn with and without the Belmore, and also the Huon Dress- with and without jacket.
Not explored here, but there’s also the possibility of triple-layering or wearing the Waikerie as a duster over a Tarlee. A Tarlee under a Waikerie under a Belmore could be a great triple-layer outfit! @StyleIsStyle is great at this with their outfits, if you need some inspiration.
It adds more combinations: triple-layering or duster-izing the Waikerie over a Tarlee also adds to the number of possible outfit combinations! 8 more combinations are thrown into the mix!
My conclusion from this exploration is that my Belmore Jacket will be my go-to once we get back to traveling around (or perhaps even for weekends away in the hopefully not-too-distant future.
