IF you’re a newsletter subscriber, you know we have seasonal EPIC capsule wardrobe images. These download and print handouts are so visually useful when it comes to putting together the perfect capsule wardrobe where everything fits together seamlessly. For those of you who don’t know what a capsule wardrobe is… it’s basically a collection of essential items that fit together perfectly. That means you can mix and match all of these pieces and wear them in different ways.
There are a few keys to getting your capsule wardrobe right:
1) Choose a color story:
In this case (below), I chose neutral colors like black, white, ivory, beige, and brown. Then I threw in some nice blue pieces. These colors work well for women of all ages and are very versatile.
2) Choose the base wisely:
There’s a reason it takes me over 10 hours to put this image together… I choose each piece very carefully, weighing fit and versatility and quality. You want to spend most of your wardrobe budget on basics. 80% base. 20% on trends. Find more really helpful style tips here. In addition, I think about sleeves, hemlines and all the things that help us ladies over 40 feel more confident.

I’ve tried to add pieces that are versatile so you can wear them over and over. This wardrobe is for spring and summer, but can easily transition into fall and beyond! Find all links to these items below!
Tops & Sweaters
Dresses and Pants
For a slightly more relaxed fit, size up on Moussy Vintage. I have a mix of 26 and 27.
All these pieces are true to size. If you have broad shoulders, you can go up a size in the Balmain blazer.
Accessories & Jewelry
I choose everyday but impactful gold jewelry. That mixed metal chain is definitely something I plan to order!
Elan is one of my favorite brands for affordable swimwear. I LOVE Becca swimwear for women over 40 with flattering fits and great coverage. Johanna Ortiz makes beautiful swimsuits if you’re looking for something glam.
These are ALL neutral toned, comfortable shoes.
