How To Dress For a Night Out When You Have a Capsule Wardrobe

Going out out: it isn't something I do frequently if at all to be completely honest, I've never really enjoyed going out - more so the process of getting ready as opposed to actually going out (I hope I'm not the only one!) I made sure I included some appropriate options in my capsule wardrobe should I need them and whilst I haven't needed any yet, I wanted to put together a possible combination for if I do need something. Plus, tonight is date night so I needed some ideas stat!

There are no set rules when it comes to a capsule wardrobe - usually it consists of a compilation of around 30 items - but there has to be a variety for day-to-day, as well as taking in to consideration any evening events and/or dinners, anything that you might need to dress up for. When choosing the pieces for my capsule wardrobe I kept this in mind and included a few options I could default to if necessary.

The first being this long sleeve bodysuit from Missguided which has been a really great addition, it's so easy to both dress up and dress down which is essential when picking pieces to include in a capsule wardrobe - you really need versatile pieces! Going a little out of the box, I popped on a vinyl skirt from Nobody's Child because again, it can be dressed both down and up. A vinyl skirt is without a doubt a trend-led piece which I think can be risky to include too much of in a capsule wardrobe, but in this instance it has worked to my favour. I'd like to think it's the focal point of the whole outfit, perfect for dinner and drinks with the girls, date night or for going out out.

Accessories make or break an outfit, once you have the core down (a top and bottoms) the final touches help to elevate the whole look and bring it together.

Being somewhat limited with a capsule wardrobe, I had two footwear options - either heels or ankle boots - I picked black ankle boots for their versatility and I'm a huge fan of skirts and boots paired together! I also opted for a check longline coat as opposed to something more cropped as I think this really elevates the whole outfit making it look smarter. Finally, I had no other options when it came to choosing a bag but that's the whole reason I went for a black crossbody bag - it will pretty much always be a safe bet!

Whilst going out is never at the top of my radar, it's good to be prepared and when putting together a capsule wardrobe or just generally when it comes to shopping (and perhaps shopping less), the pieces that you'll get the most wear out of are those that you can wear in multiple ways, for either a night out or for a night in.
