How to build a Capsule Collection
Hopefully we’ve managed to convince you of the perks of a capsule wardrobe! Now, it’s all about which clothing items you need in your capsule collection for the Winter season. The first challenge we want to pose to you is to pare your closet down to 37 items. This number includes your outerwear like, coats & jackets, your clothing like, tops, bottoms & dresses, and your footwear like, shoes & boots. We can imagine cutting your wardrobe down to 37 items sounds super scary & intense! But trust us, life will be so much easier in the long run, and if you’re honest with yourself (and your clothes), you’ll probably notice that you only really wear around 37 items all the time anyway. So, let’s get into the items that you simply must include in your capsule wardrobe!
Which items need to be included in your Capsule Wardrobe
Outerwear, Coats & Jackets that you need!
Any great Winter outfit starts with a great coat! A long trench style coat is super timeless and always looks on-trend, while a black puffer jacket is the perfect timeless trend piece to include in your capsule wardrobe. Next step: blazers! Every capsule wardrobe needs a few great blazers. Go for a mixture of oversized and well-tailored blazers and gilets, in timeless neutrals such as black, beige and cream, and mixed fabrics like leather, linen and cotton.
Bottoms & dresses to include in your Capsule Wardrobe
Every woman needs a few great little black dresses! The LBD is basically the most versatile item in any girl’s closet, dress it up for a night-out or dress it down for the office or a day of shopping, whichever way you choose to wear it, you definitely need a few in your wardrobe! The next item you’ll need are some oversized white shirts (dresses), these pieces are great for layering, and that’s one of the main ways that you can keep renewing your looks with your capsule collection. Once you’ve picked your dresses, it’s time to move on to tops & pants. When it comes to building a capsule wardrobe neutrals and basics are the way to go, and you can add some prints or a little pop of colour with a select number of items. So, a girl always needs some flattering & comfy jeans (this doesn’t have to be an on-trend cut, the main thing here is to choose a pair that suits your shape), a nicely tailored pair of black pants, some leather trousers or leggings, and a skirt or pair of shorts.
