The Range: An Affordable 10 Piece Capsule Collection

There’s a lot of pressure to “bounce back” after pregnancy.  Well, I have discovered the secret to getting back into your misses-size wardrobe quickly.  Buying a new wardrobe.  A capsule wardrobe that is.

Capsule wardrobes were all the rage a couple of years ago, but most people, myself included, do not have the discipline to rewear the same clothes over-and-over again.  But for the post-pregnancy recalibration period — where maybe you lose the weight, and maybe you decide not to — a capsule wardrobe is the perfect way to welcome the changing seasons.

So here are 10 pieces, all of which cost under-$100, to get you through it.  I chose navy as the base color because I’m just not ready to wear all black.  But winter is coming, so I will be.

Mango Fitted Blazer (also in plus)

Belted Trousers (also in plus)

Old Navy Water-Resistant Trench Coat (also in plus)

Dobby Button Up Shirt

BR Button Placket Blouse

Max Studio Printed Blouse

BR Mitico Turtleneck Sweater

Universal Thread Open Front Cardi

Choose a cardigan in a fall hue like rust, goldenrod, olive, twig, etc.  Madewell has several that will work.

Wit & Wisdom Absolution Jeans (also in petite)

30% Off My Favorite Side Zip Trouser Pants (also in petite, 00-18)

    I’ve ended up in an unintentional capsule wardrobe during postpartum, as well. I’ve got 4 or so easy shirts to nurse in; 3 pairs of shorts that are easy on a C-section incision and softer tummy; my favorite maternity jeans; and two dresses. They also all coordinate with the stroller, solly wrap, and ergobaby (LOL).

    This is really smart. It took me a year to get comfortably back into my pre-pregnancy clothes (and some still don’t fit bc my body changed. C’est la vie.) Having a few less-expensive things that FIT and made me feel good were key to helping me feel good about where I was vs. discouraged bc I wasn’t already back in my pre-pregnancy jeans.

    I love this idea and the pieces! And for that green open-front cardigan – I lived in something like that at home for the first month or so I was postpartum. That + leggings / sweatpants and a sports-style bra I could easily pump or nurse in made me feel half put together. Great utility piece.

    Squee!!! I LOVE this! Can you do more of these? I’m looking for a business casual capsule, but I love the pieces in this SO MUCH. They coordinate so well!

    Love this. Thank you so much. Capsule wardrobe is exactly what I’m looking for. I’m fully remote but still need to be out and about looking decent a few times a month. So, it’s not enough to build my wardrobe around work clothes but I still need a few options to look presentable. Hope you are feeling well and that Sloan is doing well!!
