The Second Annual Capsule Wardrobe Challenge

Welcome to the second annual capsule wardrobe Challenge.
The rules are simple.
Choose ten items of clothing from your wardrobe and mix and match them for five days between Monday September 28th and Friday October 2nd.
You can have any combination of shoes, dresses, skirts, tops and jackets as long as it adds up to ten individual items.
You are also allowed five accessories which include jewellery, scarves,bag, belts etc.
Underwear and hosiery do not come under the ten items and five accessories!
As it’s only autumn in the Northern hemisphere your are not permitted an extra coat.
If you want to wear a coat this must come out of your ten items.
If you are in the Southern Hemisphere then – Happy Days!
If you are joining the challenge please blog about it and if you want to appear in my Capsule Wardrobe Challenge round-up the following week then please email your pics to
For some tips and inspiration on how to take part in the Challenge then check out Kasmira’s post from last year here.
And although there are considerably more than 10 items and five accessories here Gok Wan's ideas for capsule wardrobe styling are helpful.
And finally, I will award a prize for the most creative participant in the 2009 Annual Capsule Wardrobe Challenge.
There is now just one week to go.
Happy (Closet) Shopping.
