Cluttered closets create cluttered lives. Too often we are left rummaging around an overflowing wardrobe, ironically at a loss for what to wear. However, owning a capsule wardrobe, which consists of a limited amount of clothing, will—believe it or not—set you free!

The Capsule Wardrobe introduces thirty wardrobe essentials—tops, bottoms, footwear, and accessories—that will create the ultimate mix-and-match wardrobe for the working woman. Professional stylist Wendy Mak instructs readers on how to use different pieces together to achieve one thousand different unique looks from work to weekend. Learn to:

• Curate and build a true mix-and-match wardrobe
• Create unique everyday looks specific to body type
• Pick the right pieces to stretch your fashion dollar
• Transition from the office to after dark in a flash
• Reduce fashion mistakes and impulse buying
• And more!

With detailed descriptions and illustrations of each of the thirty pieces, plus a list of all one thousand outfits in a handy table, The Capsule Wardrobe will revitalize the way you use your closet, make dressing easy and worry-free, and help you reinvent your personal style.

If you are like me, you have a closet packed with clothes and more shoes than you care to count. Wendy Mak’s The Capsule Wardrobe: 1,000 Outfits from 30 Pieces, does what’s promised. It shows those of us that cannot even comprehend a wardrobe of 6 tops, 6 jackets/blazers and sweaters, 6 shoes and accessories and turns it into a detailed plan of providing 1000 outfits.

For those who wish to downsize The Capsule Wardrobe would help provide a guideline to help provide a basic closest of clothes that will work for your life.

For me, I can’t even pack for a weekend away without bring that much so I was completely intrigued by the ingenuity to create so many options out of the basics. I can see myself using The Capsule Wardrobe as a guideline for travel but not as a lifestyle change.

I received this ARC copy of The Capsule Wardrobe: 1,000 Outfits from 30 Pieces from Skyhorse Publishing in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication Jan. 3, 2017.
