It’s really important to work capsule wardrobe for work that one shirt can work in an array of situations. That’s why we suggest investing in shirts with long sleeves that aren’t too figure-hugging, and are suitable for work.
- Button Down
- Pink Top
- Red Top
- Navy Camisole
- White Camisole
If you’re going to wear a skirt or trousers to work then you’ll need tops that aren’t too low-cut. Something like this white button down from Lafayette 148 New York would do the trick. It is on the pricey side, but I have been wearing it forever.
Foxcroft also makes amazing white button down tops. They are non-iron and comes in petite and regular sizing.
If you work somewhere more relaxed where shorter sleeves are acceptable, these CeCe Tops might be just what you need. They come in loads of beautiful colors so there’s something for everyone.
I have the Ruffle Tie Neck Top as well as the Tie Sleeve Top both from CeCe are great choices for a work top with a nice pop of color.
This camisole is such a winner and I am literally in love with the look and the price! It comes in a ton of different colors too.

When choosing work bottoms, you want them to be comfortable and versatile enough to match your office capsule wardrobe.
- Black Pants
- Tan Pants
- Pleated Skirt
I found these amazing black pants on Amazon. I have them in an army green color and decided that I needed them in black too. They are so great that I might need every color.
The length is perfect if you are curvy and petite because they are high waisted and ankle length (between 25 and 26.3 inches depending on the size). I sized up based on the size chart measurements. Since I am a size 14, I ordered 2XL. They fit perfectly and I LOVE them!
My next favorite pair of pants for the office are these from Isaac Mizrahi called 24/7 Pants.
They are comfortable like nice ponte’ knit legging, but look like you are wearing an expensive pair of work pants. You never feel like you are constricted like a work pant, but you feel put together.
They are amazing and want every color! For this capsule work wardrobe, I went with a tan khaki color that is extremely versatile and matches so much in the capsule. Here they are in more colors here and they come in petite, regular, and tall with sizing from zero to plus size 32.
Depending on the temperature of your office and the professionalism needed in the office, you will need some office toppers in your work wardrobe. I chose two blazers (one in black and one khaki), as well as a black cardigan and an animal printed duster.
- Black Blazer
- Tan Blazer
- Black Cardigan
- Animal Print Kimono
You do not need a ton of work shoes to make a great capsule wardrobe for work. I love nude flats or pumps and a pair of animal print mules.
- Nude Pointy Flats or Nude Pumps
- Animal Print Mules
These are my favorite office dresses that you can just throw on with a pair of shoes and get to the office. This LBD is office to drinks appropriate and it even has pockets.
