When less is best

If the wardrobe is feeling a little tired and uninspiring then a wardrobe refresh is definitely in order.
Rather than going out and purchasing fast fashion pieces to add a quick injection, most times these remain idle in the wardrobe after just a few wears.

Instead take the time out to evaluate your wardrobe and pinpoint where it’s currently lacking. 
By identifying the gaps it’ll make adding to it easier, and give you more dressing choices each day.

So let us take you on a journey on building the perfect capsule wardrobe which will be the basis of your wardrobe and make everyday dressing a breeze.

What is a capsule wardrobe?

A capsule wardrobe is a wardrobe consisting of minimal items that can all be worn together to give you maximum wear. It might be a mix of dresses, jackets, pants and skirts that can interchange with each other due to all being of a matching and cohesive nature.

Capsule wardrobes can be for a range of occasions, some like to create them as a travel wardrobe to make sure they have the maximum amount of outfits with minimal space taken up. Others like to create a neutral capsule for a season that then matches back with seasonal hues to get more wear out of the wardrobe.

How Can I create a capsule wardrobe?

To create a capsule wardrobe, you need a few good items to work as the foundation. You will build on these to create the rest of your capsule and will be the most repeatedly worn items. These items will need to be of neutral colour to ensure they can match back with just about anything else you decide to pair it with.

Capsule wardrobes will change depending on your
needs, however here's some tips to helping you to create the best one for you.

Keep it neutral

All items in your capsule wardrobe should be of neutral hues which include white, cream, beige, gray, brown, navy and black. Because they are generally not printed or bright they are really easy to pair back with other prints and colours. It also makes it easy to pair back coloured accessories, boots and scarves in the cooler months.

Faded block colours can also be classed as neutrals with blush pinks, faded greens
and soft blues also working as great pairing lighter trans-seasonal options.

Keep it simple

Avoid overcomplicating your capsule wardrobe, as it can lead to confusion when getting dressed. Opt for simplicity with fewer than 10 garments: 3 tops, 2 pants, a dress, skirt, and jacket. This foundation creates an effortless and versatile core wardrobe for everyday wear.

An easy way to do this is with multi wear garments, especially those that are reversible. Reversible styles give you two looks in one which means less garments clogging up the wardrobe and more value in your garment.

We love the Reverse Wrap Dress (Navy) for its easy stretch fabric, neutral colour and reversible multi wear style. It's a capsule wardrobe must have!

By adhering to these principles of neutrality and simplicity, you can curate a capsule wardrobe that not only streamlines your daily dressing but also ensures maximum wearability and style versatility. So, embrace the art of capsule curation and elevate your wardrobe to new heights of sophistication and ease.
