We've discussed the True Fashionista capsule wardrobe earlier in this very blog-osphere. For a quick review, it's a small collection of clothes that can be mixed and matched to create multiple looks. The key to a successful capsule wardrobe is choosing versatile pieces that can be dressed up or down. With the right pieces, you can create dozens of unique outfits that are not only in fashion now but will also turn into classics soon. If you're looking to build a capsule wardrobe for winter in our tropical environs or chillier locales, here are some essential pieces to get you started. Don't forget that items like these and more are waiting for you at True Fashionistas, Naples' best consignment store.
Fall is roaring back and it has us thinking about…pants! Those of us who get to deal with winter on a more personal basis know the importance of keeping a collection of two-legged True Fashionista wonders each season; in warmer environs they’re merely an option.

Let’s be clear here. Blue jeans are the clothing item; denim is the fabric they’re made from. The two, however, are so inextricably linked that you’d be doing them both a disservice to discuss one without the other. In fact, when delving into the history of True Fashionista denim, the place that seems to know the most is the history department at Levi Strauss & Co., that all-American home of the now-classic blue jeans with the rivets worn by millions.
Have you binged the hottest Netflix series at the moment, “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo”? Or lost yourself in her best-selling book: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing…?If so, then you’ve probably taken a good, hard look at every piece of clothing in your True Fashionistacloset to decide if it really does spark joy or not. We’re hoping you followed Ms. Kondo’s advice to pile it all up on the floor and decide if that Louis Vuitton blouse is still spark-worthy, or your prized Prada bag remains as valued as it was, say, last year. (Well, of course it is, dahling! Prada doesn’t age. lol)
