10×10 Capsule Wardrobe Challenge: Outfit #10 + Review

Today is day ten of the 10×10 challenge and there’s one more look waiting for you! I’ve also included a little review of the challenge in this post that I’d like to share with you. 

LOOK NUMBER TEN

I’m ending this spring 10×10 challenge with my favorite color: blue! As in my second look I’m not disappointed by this tone-in-tone combo – but the highlight is something else: The pleat details on the top.

I’ve used a little trick to do this and secured the pleats with a small elastic as you can see in the photos. I’ve folded the top up in the back and tucked the leftover piece in the front. Voilà, a completely new look for this simple top 🙂

 

Outfit rating: 10/10. I’ve discovered this idea more by accident but really love the outcome!

10×10 CHALLENGE – REVIEW

This 10×10 challenge has been so much fun – as per usual 😉 I actually don’t take so much time in my everyday life to think of new ways to wear my clothes (as most people I guess). This works so much better when you have less choice and are restricted to only a couple of items. The challenge helps a lot on my way to a minimalist wardrobe, it lets me discover new favorites and is also perfect to get prepared for traveling. (As you might know, most of the pieces from the 10×10 challenge came with me on our trip through Poland.)

In also love how Lee and Caroline managed to build a whole community on Instagram that is exclusively about the capsule wardrobe challenge. You should take a look at outfits by others as well as they are such a great inspiration! I’ve also linked my favorite Instagramers taking part in the challenge in this post.

Here’s a summary of all of my looks!

 

Outfit 1 – Outfit 2 – Outfit 3 – Outfit 4 – Outfit 5– Outfit 6 – Outfit 7 – Outfit 8 – Outfit 9 

My personal faves

I have three outfit highlights I’d like to share with you:  #1#3 and #8. I was really surprised by how cool the jumpsuit looks with a simple blouse/t-shirt on top! I’ve never tried to wear it like this before and loved the outcome. What I find nice about outfit three is that the denim skirt looks a little more sophisticated and shows its grown-up side. As I’ve mentioned in post #8, I’ve already worn the outfit with the blue blouse and the slip dress a couple of weeks ago. I found it nice to try a little more volume on top even if this isn’t one of my standard ideas.

I’m still not sure about outfit #5 and #9. I think I’ll have to let go of this blouse as I just don’t feel comfortable wearing it.

 

 

Style notes

FOCUS IN THE MIDDLE: One thing that I’d like to include in my outfits more often is a focus on waist. Whether it’s high waisted skirts or pants – the focus on the middle really flatters my body type.

MORE SKIRTS: I was a huge skirts and dresses wearer in the past! Now I wear jeans pretty much every day. That’s a pity I think because I have a couple of skirts and dresses in my closet that would love to be worn more often. My favorite looks show that there could be a little more.

THE ROLL-UP: Rolled sleeves and pant legs are one of my standards but I’ve been trying some other ideas during the challenge as well. I love a broad cuff for example and will also try rolling my sleeves above my elbows again.

 

How did you like this 10×10 challenge? Do you have any questions or ideas? I’d love the hear!

 

Up next: It’s Fashion Revolution Day on Monday! I’ve got something prepared for you 😉

    Liebe Lisa,
    ich habe deine 10×10 Challenge diesmal fleissig und mit viel Freunde verfolgt!
    Meine persönlichen Favoriten sind Outfit 2 und 5, wunderbar lässig gestylt!
    Ich mag die Bluse sehr 😉
    Liebe Grüße
    Sophia

    • Ah, das freut mich sehr 🙂 Ja, aus der Bluse werde ich versuchen noch was anderes zu machen, weil mir das Muster eigentlich auch sehr gut gefällt 😉

  • Hey liebe Lisa,
    wieder mal sehr cool umgesetzt und absolut inspirierend die Challenge. Ich werd das auch mal probieren, wenn ich wieder aus dem urlaub zurück bin (und die Zeit finde XD). Meine Lieblinge sind 1,2, 8 und 9. Ich bin kein großer Jeansrock Fan, aber die anderen Outfits sind echt sehr nach meinem Geschmack und zeigen einfach wunderbar, dass man gar nicht so viel braucht.
    Liebste Grüße,
    Corinna

    • Ich bin auch immer wieder überrascht! Der Jeansrock hat es mir tatsächlich nicht so einfach gemacht – aber in einigen Kombinationen gefällt er mir doch ganz gut 😉

  • Liebe Lisa,
    es macht richtig Spaß, das anzugucken!
    Die Outfits sind alle so unterschiedlich und passen doch so gut zusammen. Ich will das auf jeden Fall auch mal ausprobieren, vielen Dank für die Inspiration!
    Hab noch ein wunderschönes Wochenende!

    Liebe Grüße
    Anni

    • Das freut mich! Es macht auf jeden Fall sehr viel Spaß – auch wenn es ein bisschen Aufwand ist 😉

  • Das wär cool! Ich liebe die notPERFECTLINEN Blusen auch so sehr – die kommen bei mir eigentlich ständig zum Einsatz (derzeit herrscht bei mir aber auch akuter Oberteil-Mangel :D)
