Creating A Neutral Capsule Work Wardrobe

Next week I start my new marketing job and the dress code is office wear. I haven't worn smart workwear in over 2 years now (my last job was suuuuper casual) but I luckily held on to a lot of my old work clothes. 

Seeing as I already have a load of clothes that work together, I've decided that I'm going to have a go at having a set capsule wardrobe. Anyone who has followed this blog for a while will know how much I love a bit of beige, and when putting together a capsule wardrobe, neutrals are an absolute godsend. 

Now, I don't quite know just how strict the dress code is at my new place, but I've picked the following 14 items: 
  • 2 Jumpers
  • 4 Blouses
  • 3 Short-sleeved tops
  • 3 Pairs of trousers
  • 1 Dress
  • 1 Midi skirt 
I'm going to be wearing these items in allll of the combinations over the coming weeks and months and I'm excited to really get the most out of each of these pieces. Hello, slow fashion

To help with this whole mission, I recently downloaded the Whering app which I've seen all over Instagram. It's essentially a digital wardrobe and allows you to add all of your clothes to it and put them together into outfits. I added each of these 14 pieces to the app and so far I've created 23 different outfit combinations. Not only is the app useful for seeing exactly what you have, but it means you can see how different outfits look without actually having to try them on. You can also log how many times you've worn each piece in the app, if that's something that interests you too. 

As someone who loves clothes and once would have gone and thrifted an array of new pieces to wear to their new job, this is an exciting change for me. Whilst I'm not sure I could commit to a capsule wardrobe for my 'fun clothes', I have a feeling this is going to be a breeze for my workwear...

Have you ever tried a capsule wardrobe?
