A capsule wardrobe is one that is made up of a few classic essential items that can easily be pulled together to make several outfits. If you stick to classic, timeless cuts and designs that never go out of date, you will always have something to wear. What should you include in your capsule wardrobe? Take a look:
A Simple White T shirt
This, along with another plain top or T shirt and two camisoles, will be versatile enough to wear on its own with jeans, under a jacket for work or layered under jumpers.
Find your ideal fit and you’ll only ever wear one style again. Everyone has one style and fit of jeans that looks just like it was made for them. Find it and you’re onto a winner – and don’t be tempted to scrimp as a good pair of jeans will last you a lifetime. Wear with a T shirt for a casual look or with a jacket and heels for an evening look.
A lovely warm jumper you can wear with anything is just the thing you need to keep you warm when the weather is being nothing but typically British. Jumpers from George are the perfect addition to your capsule wardrobe, allowing you to include fashionable knitwear without spending a small fortune.
The Little Black Dress
This timeless classic will see you from the boardroom to the dance floor with just the addition of a few different accessories. For work keep it simple and sophisticated and at night add some statement jewellery and a pair of killer heels to add the wow factor to your look.
Whether you’re wearing them for work or play a pair of tailored trousers can be dressed up or down. Add a T shirt and a jumper for a more casual look or a camisole and a jacket for a more elegant look. Good tailoring is worth its weight in gold.
Macs are a girl’s best friend in the coat world. Perfect to wear whatever the weather, you’ll find you can wear them with anything and at any time of the year. Remember it’s a style that gathers in at the waist so make sure you don’t buy too small a size or you’ll lose the effect.
The White Shirt
The perfect white shirt is long and fitted to your shape. You can wear it with jeans at the weekend, with tailored trousers to work or with a skirt cinched in at the waist with a big colourful belt to add a real burst of colour and make your waist look even smaller.
Once you have the basics, anything you add will just go to complement the overall look. A gorgeous scarf can completely transform an outfit, as can some fantastic jewellery, so take a look at the latest fashion collections and see what’s big this year in terms of accessories. That way you’ll have your timeless capsule wardrobe to rely on and can constantly update your accessories, ensuring you have your finger firmly on the pulse of fashion at all times.
