In this post, I am going to give you a fantastic yet budget friendly skirt capsule wardrobe option AND I will tell you why you need these capsule wardrobe essentials in your life. In case you are confused on what I am even talking about, and you do not even know what a capsule wardrobe is or why you need one. Let me break it down for you so that you can understand why these skirts need to be apart of your collection.
Essentially a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that don’t go out of fashion, such as skirts, trousers, and coats, which can then be augmented with seasonal pieces. (source).
The key to creating an impressive capsule wardrobe is that the pieces that you choose should be:
- One color (that way it makes it easier to be paired with other items)
- Timeless (meaning no bell bottoms or other dated styles because those go in and out of style after a few years)
- And versatile (can be worn to many occasions).
Ideally, when you choose capsule wardrobe essentials, you should be able to wear the items in a work setting, a casual environment, and be able to dress them up when need be. Which is why I want to tell you about these fantastic yet affordable skirts that I was able to get from Amazon. Can we say #amazonfashion? AND did I mention you get all 4 for the price of $40?

Since I pretty much gave you the guideline for what to look for in a capsule wardrobe, (timeless, durable, and can be easily paired with other items) I think you can see why these skirts are capsule wardrobe worthy.
One of the best things about these skirts is that you can wear them for both day and night, you can be casual, or you can even wear them to work. If you go to work and you want to look good for happy hour, these skirts can give you the effect you are looking for. Because they are both work appropriate but dressed up enough that if you want to meet a man after work, then you can do that. You can also wear them all year round. Even though they are skirts, you can pair them with boots or even tights so you can wear them all year round.
Modest and Sexy:
In my opinion modesty is becoming the new sexy. I personally do not think it is good to let everything hang out. Instead, opt for something that is modest, yet more form fitting that will give you more of a sex appeal especially as a grown professional woman. If you are on your grown woman status, then learn the art of the sophisticated and sexy clothing. Which is to cover up with clothing that compliments your natural figure, and always keep it classy.
When it comes to having a capsule wardrobe essentials then the color is critical. You want something that can be easily paired with anything. I personally chose the red, black, blue, and mocha color skirts (but there are other options) because I felt they would go more so with my own personal style. BUT these skirts actually come in in different colors as well which are all capsule wardrobe friendly. Just choose the colors that work for you.
I know that these skirts are cheap and you may be a bit skeptical because you do not want them falling apart on your body because they are cheaply made. That is not my experience. I mean they are not made from silk or anything, BUT they are made from 95% lightweight rayon and 5% elastic spandex, which is why they are so durable, soft, breathable and comfortable. Which means that they will last over time and will not sketch out of place. These skirts are suitable for single moms who want to look fashionable and comfortable on a budget or even young professional women who do not make a lot of money but still want to look like a stylish professional.
The shape: So remember that bell bottom comment I made earlier in the post. This may be a little off topic. BUT I remember when bell bottom jeans were in, and I had so many of them. But then they went out of style, and now skinny jeans are in and wearing bell bottoms will make you look like a hippy. Which is why for a capsule wardrobe you want to avoid dated silhouettes AKA bell bottoms. Which is why these A-line skirt option is perfect because the A-line fit is timeless and does not go out of style.
So I am the colorful skirt type of girl. I REALLY like wearing patterns on my skirts. I thought nothing of it until one day I stepped into my closet and I had trouble finding something to wear on the go and in a hurry. Even I though I love patterns they are not easy to match with other items because they are so specific. I picked up a patterned skirt out of my closet, and I also had tons of pattern shirts that was not the same pattern as my pattern skirt and it took me so long to get dressed just because I was trying to match both tops and bottoms. I thought to myself that it would be so much easier if I just had a solid bottom to match to my pattern colored tops. That is when I decided to up my capsule wardrobe game with these skirts and low and behold here we are.
The second reason these skirts were a great option is that you guys know I am cheap and I did not want to go shopping for dozens of skirts. So when I saw this pack of four skirts for only $40 (yes all 4 for $40), I thought they were perfect, and I wanted to try to them out. The color skirts that I chose were the red, blue, beige, and black but they do have other options.
When I bought the skirts, I did not know what to expect because they did not have a lot of reviews on Amazon at the time. I have gotten some things off Amazon that have been an epic fail and looked nothing like the picture. But these skirts were precisely as advertised. In fact, I think they actually looked better than what was advertised.
The skirt has a really lovely feel to it fabric wise. And the material is not too thick or thin and therefore can be worn in all types of weather. The material of the skirt is very flowy which gives it more of a sophisticated and classy look. And the A-line fit allows the skirt to look good on all body types.
Because of the fabric and the style of the skirts you can literally change them up like you want to. In one sense I wore them with a long sleeve shirt, a sweatshirt, or even a more casual shirt. Each time getting a different look. Since it was cold when I put these skirts on I paired them with over the knee boots (click to see my review on the boots I wore). These skirts came down long enough to cover most of my legs and combined with the boots, all of my legs were covered up which makes it a perfect winter outfit if you want to dress up in the winter but not be freezing. The skirts look great with tight tops, loose oversize T-shirts and you can wear anything from sneakers to heels.
I would give these skirts a 10 out of 10 and for anyone who reads my blog you should know how difficult it is for any item to get a perfect 10 in my book. I love the skirt’s the fit, the fabric, the cut, and the versatility. Which is why these skirts are a capsule wardrobe essential. They are, and I even recommend them for women who have limited closet space, minimalist, or women who are looking to change up their college wardrobe and move to their grown woman status by ditching your college sweatshirts and getting into a more woman’s wardrobe. Making this a good fit for the working woman or even going out on a date. So enough about me bragging on these skirts. I think that you get all the reasons that these skirts are capsule wardrobe essentials that you MUST add to your wardrobe.
