Who says you have to stick to neutral colors and classic styles in a capsule wardrobe? To bust this common misconception, I am doing a 10×10 capsule wardrobe challenge with floral pieces and contemporary styled clothes.
To me, the intent of a 10×10 capsule wardrobe challenge is to buy less and re-wear your existing clothes more often. Realistically, not everyone has a highly curated closet filled with classic staples in coordinating colors. So next time when you see some monochromatic closet pictures off from a capsule wardrobe fashion blog, stop feeling the need to converge and buy new clothes. Everyone has a different style, and you have to embrace the innate differences in people’s tastes in order to discover your own. With that said, own what you have and make the most out of your old clothes.
Personally, I have a lot of floral pieces in my closet, and I feel that they are just as flexible to mix and match. So, in the next couple posts, I am doing a 10×10 capsule wardrobe challenge with floral pieces. Ready? Let’s get started!
10×10 Capsule Wardrobe Challenge with Floral Pieces
In this 10×10 capsule wardrobe challenge, I incorporated floral pieces and statement pieces. And they are:
- [Sustainable Fashion Brand] Vetta Capsule Two-Piece Dress in Black
- Yumi Kim Dream On Top – [Sustainable Off Shoulder Top: Misa Los Angeles, the Reformation]
- [Made in USA] 7 of All Mankind Destroyed Jeans
- [Classic] Levis White Shorts
- [Vietnamese Brand] Libe Pink Top – [Sustainable Fashion Option: Everlane]
- [Vietnamese Local Brand] Libe Green Pants – [Sustainable Fashion Option: People Tree]
- Zara Blue Floral Skirt (super old) – [Sustainable Fashion Floral Skirt: the Reformation]
- [Designer] Jimmy Choo White Heels – [Similar here, here]
Aloha Black Espadrilles (I had trouble with shipping :/)Replacing this with my Jeffery Campbell sandals from this post: Blue Roses || WYLDR Shift Dress with Jeffrey Campbell Gladiator Sandals
- [Designer] Pour Le Victoire Nude Heels (super old) – [Sustainable Fashion Sandals: Marais, Nisolo]
While not all the items mentioned above are from sustainable fashion brands, they are all old pieces that I have worn many many times. And you can find them in all my old fashion posts.

The blue floral skirt is from Zara, and I have had it for 4-5 years. Even though I bought the skirt so long ago, the style and the material still feel current. You can even find a similar style at the Reformation too. While Zara is a fast fashion giant, I am very impressed by their ability to quickly produce fashionable, high quality pieces at such an affordable price.
Since the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, Zara has actually gotten stricter with their policies to ensure ethical productions. They are rated as A- company in terms of ethical production and safe factory work environment. And this site even praised Zara for being transparent with their supply chain information. While the whole fast fashion business model is damaging to the environment, I think that it’s okay to buy from Zara if I see a good quality piece that I love since I don’t shop that much to begin with now.
Outfit No. 2
In the second outfit, I separated the off-shoulder top from this black dress I received from Vetta Capsule. I found the business concept at Vetta Capsule super cool and innovative. They prepare a mini capsule wardrobe for you with 5 super versatile pieces. Many of these pieces are multifunctional, and you can mix and match to create 30 different outfits with only 5 pieces. Additionally, their clothes are made ethically in NYC with biodegradable fabrics. I plan on creating more outfits with this dress, and I can’t wait to share a more in-depth review about Vetta Capsule in the next couple posts.
Hope you enjoy these two outfits! I am excited to complete this 10×10 Capsule Wardrobe challenge with floral pieces! Do you have any questions or comments? Please leave me a comment! 🙂
Smile and style on!
