How to Start a Capsule Wardrobe Over 40

by Thestylineducator

What do these outfits have in common??? Well, when you first look at them, it might look like nothing. However, they have started with basic wardrobe essentials, and then a trend was thrown in to add some fun!

When I bring up capsule wardrobes, most women look at me like I am crazy. They think it is the end of adding anything fun and trendy to their wardrobes. However, that is not the case at all. When you have a capsule wardrobe, you better learn what is in your closet. You learn how to better coordinate outfits and then you can add in a few trendy pieces to bring those outfits to life and give them even more of a different look.

Now, let’s talk over the age of 40. It is no secret that women over the age of 40 have a pretty wide variety of clothes in their closets. They have clothes that have good memories, don’t act like you don’t know what I am talking about! They have the clothes they want to fit into, but let’s face it, that probably will not happen. They have clothes that are too big, you know, just in case. They don’t even know what they have half of the time. And most women over 40, keep adding to their closets because let’s face it, they can!

You always need a great cardigan or jacket to add to your winter wardrobe. I also love adding some good leggings. I live in my leggings! Especially the Spanx leggings, they are the best! There are even things like a white tee that need to be added to your wardrobe. Then you can mix in fun trends like this sequin skirt!

It does not have to be this way at all! I have attached a freebie below for women over 40 to help them get started on a capsule wardrobe. This will help you to know what you are looking for and how to find the clothes that work best in your wardrobe. You will feel so much better about getting dressed in the morning!
