If you are anything like me, your holiday events run the gamut from small dinners and intimate parties to huge events and concerts. I need a versatile wardrobe and I don't want to buy a lot of stuff but I don't want to wear the same thing. A capsule holiday wardrobe can get you through the season and beyond.

About Misook

In 1985, Misook Doolittle aspired to create knitwear for the sophisticated woman who also wants comfort. Isn't that a lot of us? woman who never wants to sacrifice sophistication for comfort. Misook, a Korean-American started it all in her home “hand-knitting one-of-a-kind pieces that met her distinctive style needs.” Friends and strangers loved her effortlessly stylish designs. Soon women worldwide took notice of the Misook brand with its signature machine-washable “silky knit.”

What is a Capsule Wardrobe?

A capsule wardrobe is a term coined by Susie Faux, the owner of a London boutique called “Wardrobe” in the 1970s. According to Faux, a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that don't go out of fashion, such as skirts, trousers, and coats, which can then be augmented with seasonal pieces…The term has come to refer to a collection of clothing that is composed of interchangeable items only, to maximize the number of outfits that can be created. The aim is to have an outfit suitable for any occasion without owning excessive items of clothing. This is usually achieved by buying what are considered to be “key” or “staple” items in coordinating colors.

Each of the three shirts can work well with many types of outfits. The tank with the tie neck can easily be paired with sequin leggings and heels for a quick night out. Pair the silk banded neck blouse with a skirt and black suede knee boots. The white pique blouse would look amazing tied at the waist over a fab ball gown skirt. The grey moto jacket would work well over a sequin dress.

The lustrous jacquard jacket could be pair with a nude, sequin slip dress. This molten gold jacket would look fab with nothing underneath the jacket, a bold statement necklace and gold sequin skinny jeans.
