De-clutter your closet, maximize your fashion choices, and reinvent your own personal style.

Cluttered closets create cluttered lives. Too often we are left rummaging around an overflowing wardrobe, ironically at a loss for what to wear. However, owning a capsule wardrobe, which consists of a limited amount of clothing, will--believe it or not--set you free

The Capsule Wardrobe introduces thirty wardrobe essentials--tops, bottoms, footwear, and accessories--that will create the ultimate mix-and-match wardrobe for the working woman. Professional stylist Wendy Mak instructs readers on how to use different pieces together to achieve one thousand different unique looks from work to weekend. Learn to:
