Have you ever looked into your closet and thought out loud: “I don’t have anything to wear!” Suddenly, it seems like more is so much more and you have a plethora of clothing options yet nothing to wear. Well, it is time to Marie Kondo your closet and opt for something simpler and easier to maintain – a capsule wardrobe. We have all been guilty of hoarding clothing which we have either outgrown over time, do not wear anymore or simply do not know what to do with.
With a capsule wardrobe, you keep only the versatile pieces that you love and can wear any time. These are a combination of quality items you already own or can pair up to make different looks. The benefits of a capsule wardrobe? It saves time and effort because no matter which item you pick from the closet, you have something great to put on. Without further ado, here is our easy guide on how to build a capsule wardrobe and what it consists of.
A White Shirt
A crisp shirt such as this Pleated Collar Shirt – White that you can wear to work and out of the office as well? A colour that never goes out of style and can be worn with anything? Yes, please!
A Well-Fitting Jacket
A well-fitted jacket not only complements your body shape but also makes for great work-wear. Case in point: The Notch Lapel Jacket – Pink (which is machine-washable).
A Printed Dress
Printed dresses like the Ruffle Detail Floral Sheer Dress With Tie Up – Blue are fun, make you feel confident and give you an approachable vibe.
Pointed Toe Shoes
These make your legs seem longer and classic colours such as brown, black and navy make for all-time staples. Check out the Pointed Toe Low Block Heel Leather Pumps – Brown above.
Minimal studs like the Sterling Silver Zircon & Pearl Studs – Rose Gold Colour are always a good idea, no matter the occasion! They match all outfits and being lightweight, do not drag you down.
A Pencil Skirt
A timeless classic, this one can be mixed and matched with your white shirt or printed tops for a fun look. Check out the High Waist Midi Pencil Skirt – White above.
Printed tops like the Round Neck Chevron Striped Top – Rust are perfect for summers and appropriate for your skirts/pants.
A Black Dress
A dress that you can wear to work and then dinner? Yes, it is the famous LBD or little black dress. No change of outfits needed. Case in point: The Colour Block Polka Dot Shift Dress – Black and White.
Every woman needs a snug pair of pants made tailored to her body measurements, like the High Waist Pants – Navy.
Summers call for ultra-comfortable linen pants like the Linen Pleated Culottes With Elastic – Green that you can wear with your work shirts as well ethnic wear.
