Winter is almost around the corner, and this means only one thing – it’s about time you made some changes to your wardrobe! Building a capsule wardrobe is a huge hit nowadays, so stay with us and keep on reading if you want to know how to accomplish that this season.
We will be focusing on the highly requested business casual style, so check out our tips and master this task this winter!
Get a set of casual yet business-friendly tops…
Getting a couple of business casual tops is the most important step towards building your capsule wardrobe, so be sure to focus on it in the first place. Needless to say, winter months are all about layering, which is why you should get pieces made from different fabrics.
For example, an ordinary cotton button-down can be matched with a cozy sweater or a cardigan, which will keep you warm while looking stylish at the same time.
Turtlenecks are also a great choice on a cold winter day. As for the colors, navy, black, and light gray are always a good idea, as well as mustard yellow that can spice up every outfit and make it more vibrant.
Jewel shades like emerald green and ruby red are a huge hit these days, too, so get a top in either of these and transform your casual combos into more elegant ones.
… As well as simple yet effective bottoms
Once you’ve picked out your staple tops, it’s about time you found your favorite bottoms, too! Classic cuts and neutral colors will undoubtedly maximize pairing opportunities, so go for the figure-flattering pieces you feel comfortable in. Of course, a pair of dark gray wide-leg pants is an absolute must, as well as a pair of classic, straight-leg pants in both black and beige.
On the other hand, if wearing skirts is what you prefer on a daily basis, an ordinary black pencil skirt is exactly what you need to have in your wardrobe. Such a piece will look stunning in any business casual combo, so you definitely won’t make a mistake with it!
Come up with perfect outfits for corporate events, too
When it comes to corporate events such as an office Christmas party or celebrating a successful project with your business partners, we must say that an elegant outfit is obligatory. There’s no room for mistake, so pay attention to detail and come up with a stylish and sophisticated outfit. Such occasions are a perfect time to wear a fabulous dress – either floor-length or knee-length.
As for its color and style, a navy fit-and-flare one is undoubtedly one of the most gorgeous dresses since it’s universally flattering – especially when complemented with a wide belt. However, if you have a problem with your thighs rubbing against each other, you should also get an anti chafing thigh guard that will solve your problem. It won’t slip down under any circumstances, which makes it really comfortable and easy to use.
Make sure not to over-accessorize
Speaking of the accessories that would be appropriate for the business casual setting, we must say that the ‘less is more’ rule certainly apply here.
This means that you should probably avoid over-the-top pieces like colorful tassel earrings, chunky necklaces, and generally anything that features too many different shades and/or prints.
Instead, you should go for simple yet elegant pieces like delicate necklaces with small pendants or a couple of matching bracelets.
On the other hand, your capsule wardrobe also requires versatile pieces like cozy scarves and fedora hats, which will keep you warm while taking your combos to a whole new level. As for your footwear, a pair of black knee-high boots is a must, as well as ankle booties and suede block heels in the same color. Yes, we know that it seems like too much black, but trust us when we say that it is the most versatile color that deserves its place in your capsule wardrobe!
As you can see, building your capsule wardrobe this winter doesn’t have to be as challenging as you probably thought – even if you aren’t really familiar with the business casual style.
All you have to do is to stick to our tips and guidelines and you’ll make that happen, without a shadow of a doubt!
