10 Staple items for your perfect model capsule wardrobe
The capsule wardrobe is sustainable, economical, practical, stylish and the list goes on. It’s a collection of pieces that can be mixed and matched and follow a colour palette for easy styling. We would suggest including black, white, denim, neutrals plus a repeat of colour. Incorporating a small pop of colour is a fun way to introduce brightness into your wardrobe if you shy away from colour. Don’t know where to start? Look no further because below is a list of suggestions for every capsule wardrobe.
1. The Blazer
The blazer has transitioned from classic corporate to a capsule wardrobe essential. A sleek blazer is the perfect addition to everyone’s wardrobe this coming winter. Pair it with a knitted mini dress and high boots for a night out, or layer it over a hoodie and jeans paired with sneakers for that off duty model look.
2. The Tee
It is oversized, fitted, baby. However you decide to wear your tee, it is a classic staple in everyone’s wardrobe. Owning 3-4 tees so that you can switch between colours and fits will allow your outfits to be interchangeable. Tees balance your fit most simply whilst remaining casually stylish.
3. The Sneaker
The sneaker fad is not going anywhere soon, and aren’t we glad that is so. Comfort and style are everything a sneaker is and what we need to finalise our outfits. Whether you prefer it chunky or slim, the sneaker will complement any capsule outfit.
4. The Trouser
Straight fitted, pinstriped, or block-coloured trouser pants make their way towards casual wear. Trousers are comfortable and flattering for every body type and offer a great alternative to the same pair of jeans you have owned forever.
5. The Hoodie
An oversized hoodie will provide warmth and comfort without compromising on modern style. Wear your hoodie with a pair of straight denim jeans, then layer up with a blazer, and you could be pictured as an off duty model!
6. The Oversized Shirt
If you don’t already own linen or cotton collared shirt, run, don’t walk to buy one, it is a must for every wardrobe. The shirt is versatile as it can be worn loosely over denim shorts and a bikini or buttoned up with jeans and a messy bun. Either way, an oversized shirt is simple and timeless, guaranteed to suit everyone’s capsule pieces
7. The Denim Jean
Skinny jeans are out, and straight fitting denim jeans are in, and hopefully here to stay. It seems obvious for jeans to be on this list, but more specifically, it’s the straight cut, high waisted jeans that belong in the capsule wardrobe this coming winter. Matched with any other pieces on the list, these jeans will transform your outfit from casual to chic.
8. The Dress
Whether it be a little black dress or a comfortable knitted dress, both belong in your capsule wardrobe. A simple dress can be the base of many fabulous outfits. It can be layered with a hoodie and a trench or highlighted with a tee worn underneath.
9. The Trench Coat
A timeless trench coat may be an investment but will stay in your wardrobe for seasons. Your trench can be worn, thrown over your shoulders, leaving after-work drinks or layered over a hoodie for that casual model look.
Large sunglasses, the 90’s shoulder bag and a gold chain necklace, are examples of accessories that will elevate every capsule outfit. Each is timeless pieces that can be worn daily comfortably.
