Simple Capsule Outfit Planning
Throughout the life of this project I will continue to show you variations on planning outfits from your capsule wardrobe. Today I'll show you one way to generate outfits that will capture every mix available to you.
Style around the tops
It's important to maximize the number of outfits you can style from your capsule wardrobe. One of the main challenges is visualizing them well. Here, I used Polyvore to create sets, but with my own clothes I use the Stylebook app. You'll see that each top is styled with one bottom, a pair of shoes, and a bag. Once you've put together all of your tops with the same bottom, shoes, and bag, keep everything the same but the bottom. Then repeat with the next bottom in your capsule.
Then, go back to your first set and switch out the bag. Keep working through each bag with all of your initial sets. Eventually you will move on to shoes!
This process may take a while, but you'll see just how many outfits 4 tops, 3 bottoms, 4 shoes, 3 bags, and one cardigan can make! It's astounding.
