Is your closet in need of a long-awaited refresh? Whether you’re out and about or working from home these days, there’s no question that putting on new clothing makes you feel good. Take your style to the next level instantly this spring with a new capsule wardrobe from Measure and Made. By adding a small selection of well-fitting pieces in timeless, classic styles, you’ll stretch your wardrobe options – and your budget – to the max.
Ready for the best part? With Measure and Made, finding that perfect pair of pants or stylish top really is as simple as point, a few clicks, and purchase. Using revolutionary technology, they’ve reimagined the standard sizing system to give you clothing that fits every time. Sound too good to be true? It’s not, read on!
Getting Started with a Capsule Wardrobe
If you get overwhelmed putting clean laundry away or trying to find something to wear, consider moving toward creating a capsule wardrobe. The concept was developed in the late 1970s by Susie Faux, owner of a London boutique. She became frustrated with the poor fit, season-specific styles, and lower quality of mass-produced clothing available. Faux believed consumers were better off investing in fewer timeless pieces of high-quality clothing that could be accessorized as trends change.
So, what does a capsule closet contain? For starters, it’s quality over quantity. A fewer amount of nicer pieces make all the difference. Additionally, they should be items that are classic as opposed to trendy, “evergreen” instead of season-specific, and can be mixed and matched with a wide variety of counterparts for an easy, breezy experience getting dressed in the morning. By taking it a step further and choosing neutrals and limiting colors to those that go well together, you’ll extend your palette of options.
The Art of Finding Pants That Fit
Now let’s get real for a minute and talk about fit. Despite common numerical clothing size standards, women’s bodies are definitely not one size fits all. Further, each brand takes their own liberties with styles, cuts and sizes. This is why your size 12 pants from four different brands all fit completely differently. Measure and Made gets right to the heart of these issues with Fitlogic®, their patented sizing system that takes into account both size and shape. This is where Measure and Made shines. Founded in 2019 by Beatrice Purdy, the company was created to solve this exact fashion pain point.
So, how does it work? Start with the Measure and Made Fitlogic® Quiz and answer some quick questions about your height, usual clothing size, and body shape. Add in where you typically lose weight from first and where clothes sometimes fit tight, and boom – you get your very own Fitlogic score! What does that mean, you ask? Well, rather than having one size 10 available, for instance, they offer sizes 10.1, 10.2, 10.3, and so on based on your answers and your shape. You get a completely customized fit that’s just right for your body.
And good news! Even in the unlikely event that you don’t find the right fit on the first try, Measure and Made customer service reps will get to work to make it right immediately, and a new size will arrive at your door before you know it. Easy peasy!
Four Classic Capsule Wardrobe Looks
Now let’s talk fashion, shall we? You’ll quickly see that adding a tank, short-sleeve top, three-quarter-length sleeve top, and a cardigan will give you four completely different starting points. Pair these with Measure and Made shorts, capris, skinny ankle jeans, or bootcut jeans, and watch your mix-and-match options unfold! Top off with some great accessories and your favorite shoe styles to complete one of many different looks with ease!
Many of us have been spending a lot more time outdoors these days. Maybe you’re hitting the farmers market, dining al fresco at a local cafe, or spending the day out on the water. Either way, Measure and Made has just what you need to look cute while enjoying some fun in the sun.
The Woven Forever Tank from Measure and Made is a light and airy, scooped neck sleeveless top that’s perfect for casual wear, or for layering under a cardigan, duster or blazer. The chiffon trim along the neck and bottom add just the right amount of femininity and style. A versatile tank like this is a necessary element in a capsule wardrobe.
Pairing the Woven Forever Tank with the 6″ Short makes for a classic look that can be dressed up with wedge sandals or dressed down with a fun, casual sneaker. The cotton/polyester/spandex blend is cool and comfortable, and the shape is structured and polished. (Not too short and not too long!) The result is a figure-flattering shape that’s effortlessly stylish.

Work from Home Chic
Just because you’re working from home doesn’t mean you can’t let your style shine – especially if you’re on video calls all day! While leggings and loungewear are certainly comfy, they may not take you as far when it comes to climbing the corporate ladder. Create a sense of confidence and punch up your productivity by dressing the part from your flexible workspace.
The Measure and Made Surplice Knit Wrap is a three-quarter-length sleeve, v-neck top that’s just right for your nine to five. Available in sharp colors like black and cobalt blue, this loose-fitting wrap is made of a stretchy polyester/spandex blend. You’ll look put together in this flawless pullover. And we can attest, it really pops on video conference calls!
While you won’t see them on-screen, the Skinny Ankle Jeans are a great addition to your capsule closet as well. You’ll love the super-soft stretchy denim, which comes in dark wash, soft black, medium wash and white. The length is great for showing off spring sandals, flats or even sneakers, making it simple to mix and match with a wide variety of looks and styles. Trust us, you’ll want pairs of these Measure and Made jeans in several different colors!
Perfect Lunch Date
Although date nights are likely few and far between these days, an outdoor lunch with your sweetie while the kids are at school may be more doable. Slip on a flattering, yet form-fitting outfit that will make his heart pitter-patter, and head out for a romantic lunch date, just the two of you.
Pick up a Knit Side Wrap for this occasion, and many others. The short sleeve top creates a stunning silhouette and will quickly become a favorite wardrobe staple. Available in classic colors, black and white, it pairs well with any Measure and Made bottoms, and lots of other things, too. The deep v-neck creates an elongated neckline and torso, while the ruching is slimming to the mid-section. All in all, this is a hard-working, must-have piece in any capsule wardrobe.
Make a statement by matching it with the Measure and Made Capri. This slimming pant in a modern, career-casual fabric, comes in black, timeless tan, white, and our personal favorite, a beautiful cobalt blue. Rock these capris with the Knit Side Wrap, Woven Forever Tank, Surplice Knit Wrap, or just about any other top. Grab some great, on-trend jewelry and pair them with strappy sandals, high heels, or cute flats for a ton of unique and ever-changing combinations. That’s one of the best perks of a capsule wardrobe, right?
Girls Night Out
Sometimes though, you just need to take a break and get away. So grab your besties, find a local wine bar with patio seating and go! Measure and Made has fashion options for a fun (and much-needed!) girls’ night out.

With your new capsule-minded philosophy, your outfit options are truly endless. Start with the Woven Forever Tank – as we mentioned, it’s great for layering – and add a Mid-length Forever Cardigan. This soft, flowy combo is classic and very forgiving to any trouble-spots, too. Lightweight and versatile, the Mid-length Forever Cardigan is perfect for that transition from winter to spring, where the weather has started warming up, but the cold isn’t quite behind us yet. Complete the look with a long statement necklace.
You could easily add the Skinny Ankle Jean to make this an outfit, but we recommend picking up the Bootcut Jean, too. You can always use another pair of well-fitting jeans, right? Soft and comfortable, the waistband on these is perfect and the length, just right. The longer, flared leg is another great style option to have on hand, and enables you to switch up your footwear to a pair of boots, heels or mules.
