7 Items To Include In A Capsule Wardrobe

Good morning everyone, today’s post is on items to include in a capsule wardrobe. I will admit I am not yet fully there with my capsule wardrobe. What I am trying to do more of these days is to shop only once a season, easier said than done, specially when it involves blogging and instagram.

Having a capsule wardrobe is a great way to avoid spending money on frivolous items. Also you have a closet full of clothes that you absolutely love and one that has many versatile items. Here are few of mine to get you started and by all means add the items that you tend to wear year after year.

/ SLIP DRESS Similar / BLAZER / BOOTS Similar / BAG / SUNGLASSES Similar

A BLAZER

So let us begin with the blazer now I’m sure most of you will own a blazer of some sort. Gone are the days when this was considered only for the corporate world. Today blazer’s are a classic and an essential piece of garment in our closet. My white blazer is from the RtA Brand and comes in this chic double-breasted design. I adore how versatile it is as I have already worn it with three different outfits. I have paired it with some leather shorts for are hi/low mix. Also worn the blazer with jeans for a casual look. And as seen here with this silk slip dress as another option! A blazer is  must for me and one that has to be included in a capsule wardrobe.

 
 

A SILK SLIP DRESS

Speaking of silk slip dresses they are one of those pieces that can take you from a daytime look to an evening out. Here I am wearing my yellow Topshop silk dress which is a couple of years old now. If colour is not your thing then go for a neutral coloured silk slip dress, Max Mara have some beautiful ones. Silk is less prone to creasing hence one of  the reason for choosing it as a forever piece.

Another versatile pieces that can be worn year after year without looking timeless. So many endless options when it come to styling it as well. Add a chunky knit jumper on top and some combat boots for Autumn. For Winter pair the slip dress with a roll neck sweater under it, throw on a coat, then add some knee high boots to complete the look. For the Spring Summer months add a white tee under the slip dress and pair it with some sneakers/trainers for a day time look.

 
 

 

COMBAT BOOTS

Moving on and onto investing in a pair of combat boots that you won’t regret. They will for sure become one of the most-worn pieces in your closet. The perfect compliment to a midi dress, shorts, oversized knit dresses to mini dresses. They also work wonderfully with jeans too, be sure to tuck your jeans into the boots to give you that cool girl vibe!

 

MINIMAL SNEAKERS/TRAINERS

Next and onto another footwear that is needed in a capsule wardrobe the minimal sneaker/trainer. Such a simple and easy way to style down an outfit and give it some edge. Pair it with a suit, a floral dress, a long knit jumper and the obvious one with some jeans. Comfortable as well as stylish a pair of sneaker/trainer is a bona-fide essential. 

 
 

JEANS

So on to jeans, try to choose a pair that suits you, that way you don’t have to worry about the trend ones. I love wearing jeans and I have to say my most worn pairs are either in the flared style or in the skinny style. The other styles I will try out but they are not my essential pair of jeans that I wear year after year. When it comes to styling I think of Victoria Beckham and how she styles her high waisted flares. 

 
 

A CASHMERE KNIT

Now the next item of clothing to include in a capsule wardrobe is a cashmere knit. A sumptuous sweater that you can wear year after year and one that will not go out of fashion. The best feeling on those cold winter mornings is to wear a snuggly cashmere sweater to keep warm!

 

 

A CLUTCH

The clutch or grab bag is one that works for all occasion, and most recently the oversized clutch has been championed by the likes of Bottega Veneta. Great for an edgy day time look as well as for those evenings out. What’s not to love about the simple and understated clutch, it works with so many different styles of outfits.

    I’ve actually never heard of the term capsule wardrobe before but I do try to make sure a lot of my pieces work for multiple things, and while I might not have exactly what is in yours I do have similar items that would work. πŸ™‚ Love the look, you look amazing.
