Happy Friday! This is one of the very best Fridays ever. It’s release day for the GYPO Fall 2019 Capsule Wardrobe! This is one of my favorite things each season.
If you have followed me long enough, you know that I am not a huge capsule fan and I find capsule wardrobes boring. Well, most of them. Most capsule wardrobes have lots of basics to remix, and that’s good, but at a certain point, those basics get boring. GYPO capsules include just the right amount of accessories and trends along with basics to keep it from getting boring!
Note: This post contains affiliate links. I make a small commission from your purchases through these links.
The GYPO capsule wardrobe is very flexible. You can shop your own closet and substitute items as desired. You do not have to buy every single exact piece featured. In fact, not every piece will work for every body type, or climate, so be prepared to do a little foot work on your own. However, regular and plus size shopping links are included, so that does help.
The most helpful thing is having a starting place for outfit inspiration when you don’t know what to wear. Follow the calendar of outfits or just open up your downloaded set of 37 outfits and choose one that suits your mood and activities for the day.
I had a sneak peek as an affiliate and annual member so I had the chance to style a couple of outfits ahead of time. I did not follow the script exactly and I did not buy anything to create these outfits. It was all in my closet.
Outfit 1: Neutral cardigan+fall color top+grey bottoms+black boots/ Accessories- wrap bracelet, layered necklace, hoop earrings, snakeskin purse
Cardigan -JCP/old; option option option option option tee- Old Navy (old); option option option option jeans- NYDJ (old); option option option option booties- Cole Haan; necklace- Rocksbox; option earrings- old; option purse- Belk option option
The original outfit formula shows a long sleeve top and tall black boots. That is not happening anytime soon for this southern girl, so I substituted a fall color short sleeve tee and black booties. I have a beaded wrap bracelet I could have added, but I opted to leave it off.
Outfit 2: Denim jacket+striped top+black bottoms+red shoes/ Accessories- tortoise earrings/ black crossbody bag
This outfit is pretty much on point with the formula. The red shoes make it pop. This is a huge difference in GYPO capsules and other capsules. This is an outfit of closet basics. Others may have included a neutral black or brown shoe, but that would not give the outfit the same pizazz a colored shoes gives it. And don’t think you have to wear red shoes. Don’t like red? Sub mustard or leopard shoes.
Have I convinced you to give it a try? Registration is going on now from Sept 6- Sept 20. You get instant access to the outfits and shopping list. No refunds since you get instant access. Go ahead and sign up, because if you do want to shop the list, things can sell out fast. You also get access to a private Facebook group where you share your outfits with other members.
