Sometimes, it’s best to keep things simple…
Could Someone Make Up Their Mind?
Maybe the meeting is business dress. Or maybe business casual – they’re not sure yet…
Happily, she long ago mastered the art of keeping things simple, and flexible!
She likes her 3 colors, and all kinds of clean geometric shapes. So while they’re all dithering and fussing and undecided, she’s relaxed and prepared!
She can literally walk in the door of the conference center (walking distance from the train) and change into an appropriate outfit, from her tote bag…
She can carry her own luggage, and she’s confident and comfortable that she can handle whatever silliness is thrown her way…
Imagine – she’s presenting information about planning for a variety of contingencies in business. Is anybody better qualified?
Love this bold graphic wardrobe! – nancyo (posting as anonymous because I am still in transit)
Some lovely statement pieces in this capsule. It would be interesting to see an expanded version of this capsule, if others agree that is.
My colours! A lovely group.
LOVE that gorgeous Italian skirt!
I love that you include sleepwear in these capsules. While it doesn't really matter if my sleepwear coordinates with my wardrobe, somehow it makes me feel happier if it does. :)
I am trying to pull together business casual for a trip. This helps explain what I need. I would love to see more posts similar to this and/or an expansion of this post.

Again, such fun in the morning. I am so not black, white and red and can still really appreciate this brilliance.
One of my favorite go-to palettes! For a longer trip I would suggest adding a high necked sleeveless black dress. The option of wearing the shirt under the dress would imply having an additional shirt in your bag.
I love this, especially the alternate trip ensemble. I think I would prefer it with the pumps instead of the loafers. Cheers!
Janice, your work is pure magic! I love this. I also don't wear black, white and red but you have taught us to translate it into black=neutral, red=accent color. This beautiful capsule can work for anyone. I too love these mini capsules that you do for overnight trips.
Like others, these aren't my colors but I love the idea of using this post as the basis for selecting styles of items to include in a Tote Bag Travel capsule. And it would be so easy to expand for a longer trip (a 9 pack) by adding a black cardigan twin set and an a-line skirt. This is a post I will come back to often to help me pack for business trips!
Such a well-thought-out wardrobe!
I love this shirt, and only wish it was offered in my size…which reminds me…
In 2015 you recommended a shirt by Charles Tyrwhitt, which I bought, adored, and wear very often. I also bought one each of basic-function navy and white blouses from them that were AMAZING in quality and fit, but they are wearing out from constant 3-season use. Tyrwhitt no longer makes women's shirts, but I was hoping you could recommend a good shirtmaker that is comparable? I don't get to the UK that often, so a maker with an online option would be wonderful.
Thank you for all you do. I begin my days with your wonderful posts. I also continue to dress myself better and better with your candid advice, and am always sure to click through your links when shopping at places that support you. Anything to keep the lights on at chez Janice! (What would we do without you?) cheers, Sue
P.S. Opal is a soft mineral that cleaves easily, so not a good choice for a ring you'll wear often. (I can't tell you how many setters crack them while making pieces.) That's the only bad luck part!
