Part of establishing a capsule is knowing your style and what you like. I’ve considerably narrowed down some fundamentals of my style.
What I Don’t Like
Maxi skirts and dresses feel awkward and cumbersome to me.
I don’t like the way chiffon feels on my skin.
Shirts and necklaces that sit too close to my throat make me feel like I’m being choked.
White bottoms and most white tops. They’re either sheer or stain magnets.
Most prints TBH. At best, I’m meh about stripes, chevron, paisley, animal prints, and floral. Polka dots can be cute but I haven’t seen anything yet that made me go “I must own it!”
I hate constricting clothes that don’t stretch or give.
The colors yellow (my least favorite color on the planet), orange, and brown.
Oxfords/buttons downs. They never fit right in the arms or chest.
Polo shirts: Great for other people but they give me Catholic school flashbacks.
Statement necklaces. I like my jewelry to have some significance or story.
Short shorts. My thighs touch and chaffing sucks.
Wool & linen are itchy AF to me
Mascara that isn’t waterproof
Acrylic sweaters are almost always too itchy. I have a fair isle sweater from my mom I’m going to try to soften up this winter.
What I Do Like
Funky, unique prints
Layering with leggings
Soft, breathable fabrics
Being able to do an everyday cosplay/bounding
Gray, black, and navy as neutrals.
The colors purple, blue, teal, and olive. Maybe a splash of red (with a bluer base).
