Creating a Capsule Wardrobe that works for all areas of your life makes outfit creation a pleasure, whatever the occasion.
If you get an impromptu invitation for a long weekend away, you won’t have any last minute shopping dilemmas or what to wear problems, because you will already know what to wear and what to pack, because you have created a capsule wardrobe,
Of course there will be the odd occasion when you need to add something a little more specific but if the basics and the majority of your regular events are covered by your capsule wardrobe, you can pack for a long weekend away quickly and easily without any great thought.
I’ve created an example of a capsule wardrobe for a city long weekend break.
Here are the pieces to wear for work on Friday and to pack for your long weekend away
Friday at work is smart but not formal, and you leave straight from work with your bag packed
On arrival at the hotel swap your trousers for your jeans, give your feet a rest from heels and pop on your black flats, ready to go to a casual dinner on Friday evening.
Saturday, you have plans for pottering around the city and a little site seeing, it’s still a little cool, so add a light jumper with your vest and add some animal print flats and an animal print bag, and you have completely changed your look, if you’re still a little cool, add a scarf.
Breakfast with friends before a walk around the city and lunch in town before heading home, you will need comfortable clothing and shoes
And if you stay longer you could put the following outfits together to create an ever larger capsule wardrobe.
