AIBU to ask you to help me create a work wear capsule wardrobe?

Hi everyone,

I've recently started a teaching job, and the dress code is fairly smart.

I've also been trying to organise my wardrobe recently. I really like the idea of the Kon-Mari method, which focuses on stripping down wardrobes to the very basics.

I'm thinking about having a workwear capsule wardrobe and a daywear capsule wardrobe. Not sure if it's best to gave a separate work and non-work wardrobe, or to combine them both.

Just for some context, I'm in my early twenties, blonde with very fair skin and quite very small (just over 5 foot!)

I really like wearing dresses and skirts (especially fitted dresses, as I'm quite small!) I also like fitted shirts with fitted trousers or cigarette pants, but have struggled to find good quality fitted shirts at reasonable prices.

I love blue and seek to have a lot of clothes in some shade or other of blue, but am also happy to also wear other colours! I think purple and even some shades of brown would be nice, but not sure if black might be too harsh?

I would be hugely grateful if any of you have any suggestions on what I could put in my capsule wardrobe please - links and outfit ideas are most welcome!!

Thanks! smile xx

If you do a search you should find loads of stuff in Style and Beauty on capsule wardrobes.

You should try posting this again in Style and Beauty (sub section of Body & Soul).

I'm sure you'll get lots of responses there

Was coming on here to say "you do know there's a Style and Beauty section, don't you?" but see others have come here first! I'm not a S+B kind of a person, but when I had a specific question, they saw me right!

If you're a teacher, esp in a primary, dress knowing you'll have to do LOTS of bending over, squatting down and sitting on the floor, so don't design your wardrobe where people can see your pants! Leggings are your friend!
