Summer 10x10 Capsule Wardrobe Challenge

It was my third time doing the 10x10 and it was finally a good one! In fact, I’m so proud of making 10 outfits look so different, that I decided it was worth a blog post.

What the heck is 10x10?

It’s best explained by the challenge’s creator Lee Vosburgh:

“The 10 x 10 Style Challenge™ is an exercise I established in 2015 to help encourage myself to get more creative with my clothes during a 30 Day Shopping Fast. The concept is essentially a mini capsule closet of 10 items that you work with for 10 days, creating new looks and styling your clothes in ways you might not otherwise try.”

You can read more, see capsule examples and download the 10x10 challenge worksheet here.

My picks

Most of the items are fast fashion from 2016. Those marked * are secondhand. And heeled mules, that look very much like Nisolo, are ethically made in Spain.

My outfits

Here’s what I came up with! According to the poll in my Instagram Stories, everyone likes the 5th outfit the most. Which one is your favourite?

This challenge is a good fashion exercise, a way to connect with like-minded people, and a small step towards a world where clothes last long and bring joy. Let me know if you’d like to try the 10x10, too. It would be fun to do it together!
