Fall Capsule #1: Navy Dress – Work


So I thought today, it would be interesting to showcase how great a solid color fit and flare dress can be in a Capsule Wardrobe. It may seem to be a bit “boring” to have two of the same dress in the capsule (just in different solid colors), but it actually provides a great canvas to jumpstart some outfits. Plus, It. Has. POCKETS!

Take today’s look for example. Perfect for the work environment (I even pass the finger-length test) with a pair of heels, a statement necklace, and a ladylike bag. I think it makes it even more classy by only pairing two colors (my favorites, no big deal).

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s look to see how I take it down a notch by switching out EVERYTHING but the dress.

    I’m loving that dress! And I can’t believe it’s from Target… but I guess I shouldn’t be surprised here! It definitely looks more expensive though.

  • Adorable! I actually have the exact same dress, so I will definitely be pinning this for future reference!

    This would never pass at my organization. Way too short-or maybe your legs are too long:) But it is super cute.
