Capsule Wardrobe at JCPenney
Have you heard of a capsule wardrobe? If you have a hard time coming up with an outfit every day, consider creating a Capsule Wardrobe with classic pieces you love! We recently found a bunch of clothing staples at JCPenney that are timeless, comfortable, and can be worn in multiple ways.
What is a Capsule Wardrobe?
BUT…what exactly is a Capsule Wardrobe? It's basically a smaller selection of interchangeable clothing pieces that complement each other – they allow you to create a variety of different outfits with only a few pieces of clothes that you love and feel comfortable in. Not only is it more affordable and sustainable, but it's less stressful when trying to come up with an outfit! Who doesn't need that these days??
My biggest tip for creating a Capsule Wardrobe? Pick a color scheme that you like first (neutrals tend to go with most everything year-round). Then select 10-20 pieces consisting of 2-3 pairs of jeans/denim shorts, 2-3 layering tops, 1-2 jackets/cardigans, 1-2 skirts/dresses, 2-3 pairs of shoes, etc.
Note that you may need to adjust your capsule wardrobe based on the season. You can also create a separate capsule for each season (for example, find 1-2 pairs of shorts you love instead of jeans for summer, etc).
Take a peek at a few pieces we found at JCPenney:

SHORT SLEEVE TEE – This basic tee comes in a LOT of different colors – a wardrobe must-have!
SCOOP SHIRT – A great layering piece for those cooler winter months!
CREW NECK LAYERING TANK – You can wear this one all year long – such a versatile top.
V-NECK SMOOTHING LAYERING TANK – This one is buttery soft and slimming!
FLORAL BLOUSE – This is a pretty top that can be dressed up or down.
CASUAL TEE – A basic t-shirt is perfect to wear year-round!
MAXI SKIRT – This skirt would be perfect for work, church, or date night!
HIGH RISE JEANS OR MISSES SIZES – You can't go wrong with a comfy pair of jeans – these have some distressing that gives them a more casual, chic look.
DARK WASH JEANS OR PLUS SIZE – Grab a darker pair without distressing for a totally different vibe – great for dressing up or down!
BUTTON DOWN DENIM SHIRT – Dress this one up or down – so many options!
DENIM JACKET – A classic denim jacket goes with everything ~ PPP Team Member Laura said this jacket is SO comfy!
️CARDIGAN – Grab a neutral color and you can wear it with so many outfits. Laura also said this cardigan is SOOO soft!
As you can see above, you really can create a bunch of different “looks” just by mixing-and-matching with only a few staple pieces. In turn, this sames time, money, and stress…who doesn't want that??

Nice capsule outfits for transitioning from winter to spring. I would have added a trench coat, or a wind breaker with a hood attachment.

What a cute idea! Thanks so much for chiming in. 🙂
I look forward to the day a capsule wardrobe does not include a sweater, jacket, long sleeve, or single layer for us women who live in tropical or subtropical temperatures year round. Even the summer capsules have jackets and long sleeves.

Thanks for your feedback, SGV! 🙂
This probably goes without saying, but Step Number 1 is checking which pieces from the capsule wardrobe list you already have in your closet!
Mary ~ PPP Team says
Absolutely – great idea! 🙂
Love the concept but you designed for women who are not in the workplace. Jeans are not acceptable for offices.
Mary ~ PPP Team says
Thanks for the feedback, Eva! This is definitely a condensed Capsule Wardrobe idea and may need to be adjusted for your personal situation. Have a great day!
It depends on where you live. Where I live, jeans are for everyday office attire. Our dress attire is business casual and we are on a University campus.
Appreciate your site and good information
