Nude bra is on my shopping list, haha! Thanks to all, can't believe I haven't thought of this <3

Use Less I was going to recommend this as a bra specialist, I'm glad others beat me to it lol
Jenna Lacaria (5 months ago)
Try a red bra instead of nude. I was told by a bra fitter that red surprisingly shows thru even less than nude.
Yes! I think it's necessary. I narrowed my bras down to around 8. ALL of them are multi-way wear bras.

All of these are really great points! I enjoy less fitted items with having kids and being pregnant and my body always changing, I enjoy pieces that I can wear all the time even when pregnant or not :)

Do you have any tips on photographing your clothes? Your wardrobe sheets always look so clean! Whenever I try to take photos of flat-lays or clothing hung up, I always find it hard to get the lighting and color balance to look right. Is there a better way than having a designated/professional light to help with the lighting and then adjusting the color balance/levels/etc. in post?

Beautiful pieces! But you’re missing a pair of light brown leather boots/shoes.

First video I have watched and the easiest video I have found about how to create a basic wardrobe. Thank you!
Suzy Queue (3 months ago)
I like this style and dress somewhat like this myself, but I miss the days when women like to dress like women, feminine and lovely. Much of women's fashion looks like men's clothes with a feminine cut or like a homeless person who get clothes from the local charity store.

I really enjoyed this video! I have always loved gray! Recently I have been decluttering and redefining my style. I just found some jeans that fit well, and I have been ordering a few T's and tops online. I need to simplify a lot of areas. Love your ideas. I look forward to watching more of your videos. thank you!

I rarely wear pants (I don’t even own any!!), I do have some jeggings, if that counts. I wear dresses 99% of the time. And I love color... I don’t know how to do a “basic wardrobe” with all dresses. 😂

Jenna Lacaria (5 months ago)
I've never tried it but I was told by a bra fitter that a red bra is better to wear under a white shirt than white or even nude. Surprisingly red supposedly doesn't show under white and you don't have to make sure it matches your skin tone like you would with a nude bra.
Jane Eyre (5 months ago)
Great ideas.

you look best in the v neck sweater, it adds up to your femininity.

After weeks of research and hesitating I've made a break through after watching your videos - I just basically grabbed the best clothes that I love to wear and moved them to a spare wardrobe, creating a basic sectioned capsule wardrobe. Stage one! Thanks Signe.

I am transforming everything in my life to be more minimal. I gave away 4 of my pants during this 15min video 😂
Veronica (6 months ago)
this video got me hooked; just subscribed! i really appreciate seeing a style that's got more of a classic unisex vibe that's still flattering for women, which suits me better than a lot of ultra-femme looks out there. i'm also a college student so comfort and practicality are SO important to how i dress, but i still want to look put together. thanks so much for this helpful series!

Love your breton T with that wider white stripe. Can you say where you bought it?
Chantel * (6 months ago)
The only place i ever found clothes that were consistently opaque was in kuwait, the quality was much better. If the clothes were transparent they wouldn’t sell there!
My leather jacket is 14 years old and I don’t consider it old 😂

YouTube's algorithm recently recommended this video, so THANK YOU to YouTube - - I may not be the most 'stylish' heterosexual guy on the planet, but your capsule wardrobe in this video was ... On-Point Girl!!! - - Your style PERFECTLY suits your personality ( ... your significant other is truly fortunate; definitely, share this video comment) ... You could make a burlap bag look stylish!!!

What brand jeans are you wearing in this video? I don't see it in your description and they are the type that I've been looking for and can't seem to find. I know this is an older video but hopefully you will check your comments. I'd appreciate it if you would let us know
cynthia g (6 months ago)
+powersv848 thank you, it's unfortunate that she doesn't read or respond to her viewers comments.
cynthia g (6 months ago)
+powersv848 okay thank you. I think she responded back on another video saying they're Levi 501 jeans. So I guess there's some confusion. That's what happens when the owner of the channel doesn't respond to her viewers. Thanks for the tip I'll look at both.
powersv848 (6 months ago)
If you go into the description box, there's a link that says shop my look. Then you can click on each item and it will take you to shop. Light blue Jean's are from Asos.

+yeah boi no need to move on, just take the main ideas and find pieces that work for your body. I have a very basic wardrobe and it's harder to find pieces that fit perfectly without costing a fortune but it's doable with patience and practice.

Bob yeah it is, I'm glad I'm not the only one who cant help feel a little jealous when these thin women talk about their wardrobe. Everything drapes nicely and they can pull off loose and comfy look. Ugh better move on I guess

As a 42 yr old white woman Ive had to shy away from wearing grey & white. Both favorite wardrobe colors btw 😔😔But due to the changes in my complexion that has come with age I sadly have had to do myself a favor and stop wearing white and grey. Especially any heathered grey. Ya it’s something that no one really tells you about aging,that my skin tone started to just look really...I dunno...pasty? Washed out maybe? Hard to find the perfect descriptive word. But ya white & grey have become very unflattering on my complexion. Makes me look even MORE pale, flat,full and older. I’ve had to shift to warmer colors that reflect a bit onto my face. Pinks,corals,etc. Anyway my point is this collection of yours is definitely aimed towards a younger woman or darker skin tones)who still have a lil color in their cheeks! ☺️☺️
quotidianlight (3 months ago)
One thing that folks who want or need a more colorful minimal wardrobe can do is fiddle with an online color wheel calculator to find a pallet that works for them. It'll give your 3 o 4 colors that all play nice with one another.
uncle bob (5 months ago)
That sucks then. One more thing not to look forward to while aging lol.
Wendy Singleton (5 months ago)
uncle bob for me yes even with make up
uncle bob (5 months ago)
ok ladies, are you saying that not even when you wear make up cant you wear those colors anymore?
Wendy Singleton (5 months ago)
Alison H me too ! I'm 47 and things weren't looking too good any more it was when I was trying on a top 1 in blue and 1 in white and the white just washed me out completely. I try and stick to black, dark grey, navy blue as a basic theses days x

You’re very pretty- More feminine the better 👍
Evy Courtney (10 months ago)
Very good about quality versus quantity ....Good tips re eg well fitting....neutral colours can match easily...and accessories can add the colour....I find on the 1st two jackets , the sleeves were too long...half way down your hands....The biker jacket looked nice and the whole outfit gave you a nice shape, too

Judy Ajifu (11 months ago)
I just started watching your videos and love your "pared down" concept of fashion and comfort being a priority! Now I want to go through my closet and get rid of at least 75% of what I haven't touched or worn in years and stick to quality basics. By the way, you'd look great in ANYTHING! Most of us have challenges and your tips are very helpful.

I'm inspired to clean my closet out... after watching this episode. Thanks so much. I'm with you on your color palette and casual preference but not the crew neck..i prefer the boatneck or V- neck. You had both so we aren't far off. Thanks again. Victoria

I moved to Norway a few years ago and while I love the "effortless" style popular in scandinavian countries, I hate that it seems to ignore women have different body shapes. Most of the items you mention here would make me (an inverted triangle petite) look like I am wearing a garbage bag. My biggest heartache are the winter coats that are just straight and waaay too long... scandinavian women are so lucky to be tall and often have model sizes.
uncle bob (5 months ago)
scandinavian women are more masculine than other european women. they are often heavier built and taller, but of course everyone is different. so i dont know where you live when you see all these "models", scandinavian women have challanges just like women everywhere else.
Chourouk A. (11 months ago)
