My fourth Stitch Fix box came this week. Though I felt like my last box wasn’t really a match with my style (except for two wonderful pieces), my stylist really nailed it this time!
This time I asked my stylist to send me a couple of pieces that would be good for church or evenings out. I am still in between sizes and have not had many options for church or the (very) occasional date nights. My stylist also sent a few other pieces that really match style, too. Comfortable. Classic.
As I start thinking about my spring wardrobe, I’m beginning to loosely plan for a capsule wardrobe for my closet. If you are unfamiliar with the capsule wardrobe concept, the gist is that you take a minimalist approach and put together 20 or so items that all coordinate and can be mixed and matched.
I plan to use my next few Stitch Fix boxes to gather pieces that will fit into my capsule wardrobe. I will share more on this as I build my capsule, but for now I just say I will be focusing on my favorite colors and versatile tops and bottoms. You can find lots of capsule wardrobe inspiration on Pinterest. I love this one and this one. Oh, and this one too.

4 Tips for Using Stitch Fix to Build A Capsule Wardrobe
1. Pick a color palette.
One of the best ways to ensure a closet of clothes that work well with each other is to pick a handful of colors to buy clothes in. Pick colors that you love and that you know look good on you.
2. Be clear about what you need.
Stitch Fix is great about asking for requests and listening to what you need. Before each box is sent, they give you an opportunity to share requests. If you are lacking a great pair of jeans, ask for one or two to try. Keep your style profile up to date, as well, so your stylist can send clothes that will fill in any gaps in your wardrobe.
3. Fill your style board.
Stitch Fix’s stylists want to know what you like so they can send you clothes you’ll love. One way they do this is by referencing your Pinterest boards. Create a board on Pinterest and fill it with pictures of clothes and outfits that match your style, then link it to your style profile on Stitch Fix.
4. Only keep what fits into your capsule. (Or what you LOVE).
The opposite of a capsule wardrobe is a closet overflowing with pieces that you wear infrequently or that only coordinate with one other piece of clothing. A capsule wardrobe is intentional and minimal. Which is a great thing because it reduces overwhelm. If an item arrives in your box but does not match what you are working towards, then send it back and wait for an item that suits your capsule better.
Caveat: If you get something in your box that doesn’t fit your capsule but you LOVE it, then do keep it! At least, that’s what I would do.
Stitch Fix Unboxing #3
Market & Spruce :: Zansia Curved Hem Knit Top
This shirt is so soft! And gray is one of my favorite colors. I especially love the length of the shirt since finding shirts that are long enough can be a challenge. I am sure this shirt will get a lot of wear, and I’m sure it will go with several pieces in my closet.
Pink Clover :: Clyde Chambray Top
A chambray shirt is a classic piece and so versatile! It definitely belongs in my capsule wardrobe.
Faith + Zoe :: Romina Maxi Skirt
I LOVE this skirt! The pleats and sheer layer are feminine and pretty, and I love the color and length.
Staccato :: Marabell Open Cardigan
Gray and mustard are my favorite colors. So can you have too many cardigans in your favorite color? That’s what I’m asking myself…
Verdict: Still deciding!
Just Black :: Drake Scissor Hem Skinny Jean
I took a chance on asking for pants because I wasn’t sure of my size and am still trying to lose weight after my last baby. But, these actually fit! (Though they are a tad tight). My husband is concerned that they bunch in the legs too much. I am going to try them on a couple more times before I decide whether to keep them or not. I like them a lot otherwise.
Verdict: Still deciding.
What do you think? Which would you keep?
