Curating a Capsule Wardrobe: Essentials for Every Style

As we are a couple of months into the new year, you might be feeling detached and over all your jazzy clothes from the year before and are sick of the continuous cycle of hopping off and onto trends that leave you at the end of the year with a hug bag of clothes you need to sell or donate to the charity.

If that sounds like you, then you are in dire need of building a capsule wardrobe filled with classics that never go out of style and last longer than 3 spin cycles. You’ve come to the right place! We will be going through some of the timeless classics that are a staple in every well-dressed person’s wardrobe.

What Does a Capsule Wardrobe Consist Of?

There are certain staples that are a must when it comes to building your capsule wardrobe, such as collecting some solid quality basics, from white t-shirts to classic, versatile going-out dresses. Finding brands or items that fit you very well or if you don’t mind spending that bit extra, taking them to be tailored to fit you perfectly, changes everything; it could turn something that looks cheap into something that is both quality and expensive.

Footwear is also important to remember. Collection shoes that are versatile and high quality are a must so they last a long time and can be paired with a range of outfits. Try looking for things like slingback heels, loafers, boots and even some comfortable trainers.

Outwear-wise, finding well-fitted coats and sweaters will make winters much easier and if you find a couple of classics, you’ll save a lot of money. Look for things like trench coats, stunning faux fur coats and maybe a cashmere jumper on sale that will always stay in fashion.

How To Start a Capsule Wardrobe

This will vary depending on what you currently own, but figuring out what you wear is a good place to start. Our best recommendation? After aligning all of your coat hangers in the same direction, flip everything you wear once. By the end of the month, you’ll have a solid idea of the essential pieces in your closet—like a blue dress or a pair of straight-leg jeans—which is how you should build your capsule.

How Do You Identify What You’re Missing?

In order to get the most out of the items you currently own, try to identify the areas of your wardrobe that could use some attention.

Maybe you enjoy wearing statement pieces in your wardrobe and making a statement with what you wear, but you don’t think you wear them enough on a daily basis. More statement-making pieces can be dressed down and ultimately made more wearable if you have more staple pieces, such as T-shirts, a great pair of jeans, and boots that work with all seasons.

Final Thoughts

What everyone thinks of as a basic or part of their dream capsule wardrobe is completely unique; therefore, it’s more about finding out what you need, understanding your personal style and not being carried off by countless fashion trends every five seconds. Building a capsule wardrobe takes time so patience is key and don’t be afraid to spend that little bit extra to get the most out of your wardrobe.
