CAPSULE WARDROBE : 10 items // 12 outfits

I’ve seen so many of these 10 x 10 challenges going around and I think they are such a  handy way to pre-plan some outfits. I also love nothing more than a chilled evening with a cup of tea and some photoshop collaging. I recently added a few new (but second hand) pieces into my wardrobe and I thought this would be a great way to plan some outfits with them and see how I can incorporate them into my wardrobe. This time I decided to style up three different skirts because it’s something I want to wear more often.

THE OUTFITS 12 outfits

I am pretty sure there are more than 12 ways to mix & match these items, but here is my top 12. You could make each one different again by changing the footwear, or adding in some outerwear or a handbag. I’m having a serious midi skirt moment recently so I’m hoping to get lots of wear out of these 3 pieces. I adore a long skirt with some long boots and a chunky jumper – that is my current JAM!! I blame Pinterest for having such amazing style inspiration.


An easy way to see how many outfits you can make with however many pieces is with a bit of fashion maths. In this case….



(Tops x Skirts) x Footwear = X number of outfits

(4 x 3) x 3 = 36 outfits



I have made up 12 outfits here, but each one can we worn with the other 2 footwear choices, multiplying the options by 3. I don’t know about you but this is a kind of maths I can get on board with.




How many outfits can you make with your entire wardrobe? That’s where the challenge comes in because unless ALL of your items will go together, you’ll need to do quite a bit of adding and multiplying separately. But it could be a fun thing to figure out. You definitely wouldn’t be able to say you have nothing to wear then!!
