Capsule Wardrobe Accessories For Party Season

So you are wondering what capsule wardrobe accessories you should include for party season? You have come to the right place. In this post, I discuss how to transform any outfit from day to night easily, how to decide what accessories to include in your capsule, and finally, I give you some ideas with links to consider.

One of the best ways to accommodate party season when you have a capsule wardrobe is to choose outfits that can transform from day to night.

Day To Night Outfit

The best way to enter party season with an outfit that feels and looks great, as well one that does not clutter up your wardrobe is transformation. Choose a dress or even jumpsuit in a simple, clean canvas colour in black, navy, charcoal, cream, burgundy, bottle green or another base colour that will go well with lots of others.

Find an outfit with simple lines and no fuss. Avoid anything seasonably fashionable, flouncy, frilly or with signature detailing. Using a simple base allows you to use accessories to either dress it up or dress it down. The result will cost you less, reduce decision fatigue and take up less space in your capsule closet.

The key is to change your shoes, maybe add a scarf, change your bag and add a little jewellery and an outfit can go from day to night.

What To Include In Your Capsule Wardrobe

It is worth having a few accessories in a capsule wardrobe for special occasions and parties. Try to choose something that will complement a variety of events rather than the first one that comes to mind. Find a pair of shoes, jewellery, a bag and possibly a scarf that you can repeatedly use when an evening invite arrises.

If you are looking for accessories, the general rule is that if you are petite, you are better off with more delicate jewellery, smaller bags and less chunky heels and if you are taller you can afford to go a little heavier.
If you are shapely, choose a chunkier heel on your shoes or sandals to balance you out.

In regards to gold and silver jewellery and capsule wardrobe accessories, if you are warm-based, choose gold or cool-based select silver. If you do not know what base your skin has look at the inside of your wrist, blue veins indicate a cool based skin tone and green veins indicate warm.

Capsule Closet Success testimonials

'When you join the membership it isn't generic it is tailored to your needs. Michelle considers each individual person and provides advice and guidance based on their needs. I have learnt so much since I joined I feel like I could sit an exam on it now! Honestly, without a doubt if you feel like you are lost with what to wear, you don't know what suits your body shape or your shape has changed, you've lost confidence, you're starting a new job, or you want to minimise your wardrobe, Michelle's membership is without a doubt for you. You can not get better for the price, I have looked!'
I joined Michelle's facebook "capsule wardrobe challenge" in June 2020. I loved her approach of starting off with a concept of what colours and styles you were attracted to, followed by what your lifestyle required functionally. It helped me assess my existing wardrobe with a checklist in mind instead of feeling overwhelmed and indecisive. I found the video format and weekly check-ins easy to follow and explained each stage of building a capsule well. She has been quick to answer any queries I have and to offer her professional stylist's opinion with a gentle manner. I am most grateful for Michelle's overarching aim to help her clients "find their happy place". This membership is about being comfortable in your own skin, not about being super fashionable, and that is exactly what I needed. Thank you for helping me find my confidence again. 😊
There is no doubt in my mind that having a personal stylist online is worth the investment. In fact, at the end of the day I will spend considerably less while looking and feeling so much better. Why? Because I will never again mindlessly spend and spend and spend on clothes that just aren’t right for me and that don’t make me happy. I think we all dream of that wardrobe that makes us happy and confident, but it is so easy to just give up and just wear something. I know I did. And that is just plain crazy because I love clothes! I have always been attracted to styles that I lacked the confidence to try out. Now, with the help and guidance of Michelle, I can finally explore those styles with confidence knowing that whenever I run an item by Michelle, she will give me her honest feedback on whether or not it will fit with my colors and with how I want to look and feel. In short: Michelle’s advice really is priceless. I feel an A-lister in the garments I have purchased since becoming a member! Pssst: One secret, you don’t have to become a minimalist if you don’t want to. Michelle is not about legalistic minalism, she is all about you finding out what works for you and that – along with her very deep knowledge of style – is why I think her membership works for me when in the past nothing else has.
