This week, I’m doing things a little different. I put together a capsule wardrobe with the above pieces to wear to a number of occasions. A reader asked me for help with outfits for a long weekend for her daughter’s graduation. Along with the ceremony, there will be a brunch, cocktail reception, and perhaps a dinner or two. Another reader asked about an out of town bridal shower that would include a few days of travel and dinners. I collected pieces with those events in mind, plus additional things to wear off duty. At home or away, I think there’s plenty to play with from these classic items.
The classic palette drives the story. I filled in with a tan blazer and versatile neutral separates. Black acts as a contrasting pop and simply travels well. Comfortable flats and heels have looks covered for both casual and dressy affairs. Two simple pieces of jewelry can be layered or worn on their own. A chic tote for days when a small bag won’t be enough. A crossbody in two sizes, plus a velvet bag complete the accessories.
Check in each day this week for styling options using the pieces from the spring capsule collection above.
