10X10 Outfit Challenge Winter
We have been talking a lot about capsule wardrobes here. My goal for 2022 is to spend less on clothes, detox my closet, and enjoy getting dressed each morning. Capsule wardrobes will help achieve these things! If you are unsure about capsules and if they would work for you, I encourage you to test out the concept with this 10×10 Outfit challenge for Winter.
A 10×10 challenge tasks you with using only 10 clothing items to create a different outfit for 10 consecutive days. Similar to capsules, where a minimal number of items are used to create an entire wardrobe for a season. This is a fun and easy way to experiment with capsules.

For this challenge to work for you, you must choose items that fit your lifestyle. I work from home, so the pieces shown here are casual and functional. If you need more business casual looks for this challenge, swap out the leggings for black trousers; the duster for a blazer; and the tunic for a nice blouse.
For this challenge, I use:
4 tops, 2 layers, 2 jeans, 1 legging, and a pair of flats.
Some 10×10 challenges I’ve seen do not count shoes as an item. I do here because I normally count shoes when creating a capsule.
How to create a successful 10×10 challenge
Like capsule wardrobes, for this to be successful, it is important to use neutral colors that coordinate well. Neutral colors, such as white, black, and gray coordinate easily. Layers add versatility, which is super important for capsules.
*TIP: Make sure your base tops are not too chunky, otherwise they cannot be layered.
A 10 x 10 challenge really tests your wardrobe to see if it is actually working for you. A good solid wardrobe can create several outfits from a limited number of clothes. The foundation to a good wardrobe is staple pieces, if you have all of these, you are on your way to a functional wardrobe. Having the necessary staples is also the first step to implementing capsules, since many staple items are used in capsules.
I am so passionate about saving money and extending the wear of every clothing item. Follow along on Facebook and Instagram (@ppfgirl) as I share my daily outfits from this challenge! If you try it tag me so I can see your outfits too!
