Do you you have a closet full of clothes, but everyday wake up feeling like you have nothing to wear? We got you girl! We’d like to introduce to you the capsule wardrobe, and it is gonna change your life!
A capsule wardrobe includes 5-20 (depending on your preference) basic pieces that are staples in your wardrobe. Each of these pieces can mix and match together, simplifying your wardrobe but making sure your outfit is always on point. Rather than following trends, you will collect pieces and items that are timeless. A capsule wardrobe is a great way to become a more sustainable consumer,
limit your spending and eliminate the dreaded ‘what am I going to wear today’ feeling!
Whilst 5-20 pieces can see like a daunting number to minimise your closet too, we’re here to help you get started! Here are some pieces that are a must have when creating your new wardrobe.
1) A Good Tee
A good tee is the perfect staple item for any girl. Find a tee that matches your vibe and you can wear any day, with anything. We love a simple graphic, or maybe an acid wash if that’s more your style.
2) The Little Black Dress
Every girl needs her Little Black Dress. The LBD is timeless, and the perfect piece which will never go out of fashion.
We love a LBD because with the right heels and accessories you’re ready for a night out, but it can easily be thrown on with some sneakers and a denim jacket for a cute day look.
Your wardrobe is never complete without your go to pair of jeans. Denim can literally go with anything in your wardrobe and is the ultimate staple piece.
We recommend taking some time to really find a pair of classic denim jeans that you feel amazing in. If you’re struggling to find the right fit you can always consider an alteration!
Whether you prefer black or blue denim jeans, they are such an easy staple to wear to any occasion.
4) A Basic Top
A crop basic top is also an absolute must have! The key to the capsule wardrobe is having versatile pieces that will go with anything! That’s why we love a racer back or ribbed top.
If you’re worried about not having enough options, once you find a fave fit buy it in a few colours to mix up your look.
5) A Cute Skirt
A cute skirt is a great item to have because it can easily transition from day to night, casual or dressy! Whether you’re a mini, midi or maxi girl, a skirt is an essential wardrobe item.
Think about what basic tops you already own and pick a colour or style that will match easily! You might be more of a monochome girl, if that’s the case a black mini will keep you covered. If you love a floral top then think about a denim skirt that will match with all of your floral faves.
6) A Jacket
A jacket is a must-have capsule item. The perfect thing about the capsule wardrobe is that you’re curating timeless items that suit your style, regardless of the season trends. Pick a jacket that screams you, and it’ll go with everything!
7) The Sweatshirt
Honestly, you can’t have a perfect wardrobe without that piece you can chuck on with anything. Sweatshirts have that perfect vintage cool vibe that every girl needs in her repertoire.
A good pair of sneakers never go astray! We recommend a cute pair of white or black sneakers to complete any look in your capsule wardrobe.
We ALL need a good pair of heels in our life. A pair of black strappy heels are super chic and timeless and will take anything in your wardrobe to that next level.
Just because your wardrobe is minimal, doesn’t mean you can’t still dress it up! The perfect accessories complete any outfit, whether it’s a nice ring or some simple earrings. We suggest finding one or two pieces that compliment any outfit!
