I also go with the uniform approach to work clothes, as opposed to a capsule. I have about 12 pencil skirts, some year-round, a few for just summer or winter, that i wear everyday. Top is either a wool crew sweater, a button down shirt or a cardigan twin set. Skirts are navy, black, gray with a couple of florals. Tops almost all match almost skirts, so the mix and match combos are extensive. I have three or four pair ballet flats that also match most of the outfits. Dressing is a snap. Shopping is even easier, as I know exactly what brand and styles and sizes I love, so when somethings need replacing, I just watch for a sale. I admit out of a little boring, but in a conservative setting, with safety issues that prevent me from wearing heels, scarves or necklaces, its a good solution.
Now... For casual clothes, I'm more capsule. 2 jeans, 2 leggings, 1 cord pants. Could sweaters, button downs, tees and a handful of scarves. Flats, booties and tall boots and I'm set. I love all the mix and match combos. I have a couple pair heels and necklaces that dress up my pencil skirts for church. Overall it's a relatively small closet that works for me. Not 33 small, but small enough that I always look great, never have to think or worry about clothes and easily fits in my half of our tiny closet.
