 A “Capsule Wardrobe” are the essential items that are the work horse of your wardrobe; the pieces don’t go out of style, can be dressed up or down and can be used in multiple seasons.

How to build a capsule wardrobe:

  • Start with a base colour (commonly pick two of black, white, navy or grey),
  • Then add an accent colour (try a pop of gold, red or pink),
  • Building upon this, add a few pieces with texture and pattern,
  • Plus, footwear that get you everywhere,
  • Also bag that carries your necessities and
  • Finally, a scarf and accessories for pizazz and a pop of colour.

Typically a capsule wardrobe is 8-12 pieces that work together.  They don't have to be boring or plain. The pieces that you choose will depend on your lifestyle and style expression.  It is also the place to invest in the best quality items you can afford as your price per wear will determine your best value.  Do not scrimp on quality or fit.

Fancy Pants

This year, bold has taken a new turn and it's definitely here to stay. No longer is it acceptable to stick with what's ordinary. It's time to think outside the box, stand out, and be bold.  One of the biggest looks that has stayed since last year (and will continue!) is bold pants--floral prints and colourful bottoms.

These styles are easy to style and wear--pair with neutral tops and flats for an easy spring look.  Warm up your look with a sweater and cool boots for the next season.  This great look is fabulous for the `been there done that crowd`.  If you want to be extra bold you can add a pop of colour on top to create a zesty style!  Have fun and just do it!!

How Buying $200 Pants Can Ultimately Save You Money

It's tempting to spend $40 on a pair of pants from a cheap store. Don't do it. Why?  Because those pants will cost you too much money. Let me explain...

Let's say you do spend $40 on a pair of pants. You might wear them once a week for a month. But because they wear out quickly, pull at the seams, fade when you wash them and probably drape in an unflattering way, you'll only wear them only twice next month. That's 6 wears or $6.67 per wear. If you buy a pair of $40 pants 6 times in a year you will have spent $240 dollars on pants you can no longer wear (and probably stay in your closet and take up room!).  

If, however, you spent $200 on a pair of quality, lightweight, awesome fabric pants that fit you ideally and that will wear without conspicuous signs of use, I am pretty certain you will wear those pants once a week for at least two years. That's 104 wears or $1.92 a wear!  In essence the cheap pants cost you more than three times as much as the higher priced ones!  And that does not even include paying yourself for the time and effort it takes to go and shop for new pants all the time.  

Buying cheap is like buying disposable clothing.  Yes, it might hurt to hand over the money for quality items, but over time, it will ultimately save you money!
