Capsule Wardrobe: Colorful & Sophisticated

Who inspires your style? There are thousands of influencers on Instagram, and they all post amazing looks that someday when I have a lot of money and those brands are sustainable I’ll probably copy. As I was perusing my Insta today, I got a comment from Conscious & Chic on my Casual Capsule Wardrobe, she said that her casual style was most people’s dressy style and that’s so true. Her style is sophisticated, but not only that it’s colorful too! She wears amazing patterns and the most beautiful colors. So that became my first inspiration for this capsule. My second came from a styling tip from Sustainably Stylish. Her tip- sweaters over summer maxi dresses to reuse for winter. Isn’t that amazing?! I wish that I’d thought of it before. So I combined some of Tania’s activism chic with Kat’s bright sophisticated aesthetic.
