Here are some style tips for dresses in a Capsule Wardrobe:
- Dresses can play an important role in a Capsule Wardrobe when you're balancing your bases -- a dress in one of your "family of neutrals" colors can provide a whole new look for layering tops, sweaters, etc.
- A dress can also be a fun way to introduce a new color into your capsule without having to rearrange the core of your mix-and-match options -- a brightly-colored dress can work especially well if you have some neutral tops to combine it with, but also can just be a fun touch alone.

- Always shop for flexibility in a range of circumstances, and avoid buying looks you already own! Try out a dress in a new silhouette, and see all the fun options it adds to your existing favorites.
- Remember that layering options for dresses not only include the obvious (like sweaters, blazers, vests), but also button-down tops worn open, or lots of combinations of blouses, tunics, and t-shirts worn over the dress. Functionally speaking, this turns the dress into a smooth and seamless skirt -- a brand-new look! You can also change things up simply by varying your jewelry, scarves, shoes, etc. We tend to get stuck in habits of wearing one dress with one particular sweater, or one particular necklace, which can quickly lead to boredom within our wardrobe. Try out a combination that doesn't seem intuitive to you -- it might just be your new favorite outfit!
