I have to admit that selecting the garments for my Winter Capsule Wardrobe has not been that easy. As a first step I added my absolute favourite pieces that also work for the season. But with only those pieces my wardrobe would have been quite empty. In addition, I wanted to test the suitability of lesser worn garments to decide whether they deserve a spot in my closet or not. The main criteria for this decision has been whether I could come up with 3 different outfits containing the piece in question. I have sewn the long vest already in 2015 but have actually not worn it that much. I still liked its style but was actually not very creative in finding new ways to wear it. To find new outfit inspiration I always like to turn to Pinterest. For my capsule wardrobe I have also created a pinboard and collected ideas. And all of a sudden I had lots of ideas how to wear this vest. I want to share one of these outfits with you today. You can find previous outfits with this vest here and here. And how do you decide what to keep or toss from your closet?
