Casual Capsule Wardrobe for a College Freshman

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I just started Uni and have realized that I would like to clean up my dress a little bit. The idea of a capsule wardrobe attracted me because of money and space savings. I did find a number of examples and pictures for capsule wardrobes, but they are all targeted at a seemingly older and much more "dressier" look. What pieces could I get to wear everyday that make it look like I care, but don't make me stand too far out?

Frankly, if all want to do is to look slightly more put together, all that you need are a bunch of button up shirts, knits that can go over them or be worn alone, some nicer jeans, a few pairs of non-denim casual trousers, a pair of chelsea boots (the boot de jour) or chukkas, and some decent minimalist sneakers.  Oh right, and a good coat.  Something in navy or dark grey that fits well, and you are probably good to go.  If you have the budget and it's in your style, a leather jacket that fits well, is well constructed, and is made of good leather, and you are pretty much set.

That is one of the few situations where an official collegiate sweater probably is practical.
