Creating Your Capsule Wardrobe: 7 Essential Pieces

Do you constantly feel like your wardrobe needs updating or changing? Maybe you can’t seem to keep up with the constant changes and fashion cycles. Don’t worry! That’s completely normal. Fast fashion is designed to make you feel like you’re always behind seasonal trends. 

This is why it’s so much better to focus on creating a capsule wardrobe. A capsule wardrobe is a collection of six or seven pieces that can be endlessly combined and styled together. It focuses on basic yet chic staple items that everyone should have in their wardrobe. 

Basic White T 

A basic white t is a must have in every woman’s wardrobe. This piece can be styled in tons of different ways and is incredibly versatile. You can dress it up or dress it down. Pair it with your oversized blazer, under a little black dress, or with combat boots. 

Oversized or Fitted Blazer 

It’s always great to invest in an oversized or fitted blazer to elevate your more casual looks. Great colors to consider are black, beige or pinstripe. You can pair your blazer with a sneaker or even polish it off with a high heel. 

Men’s Dress Shirt 

This capsule piece should always have a slightly oversized fit and colors that match with everything are black, white, navy, or pale blue. These can be styled with a heel over a fitted dress or with some flip flops and a bikini to go to the beach

Little Black Dress 

No collection of clothes is complete without a little black dress. This is the perfect option for those nights that you have no idea what to wear. Dress it up with your silver jewelry, blazer, and high heels. If you want to opt for a more casual look, wear your dress over the white t and pop on your combat boots. 

Silver Jewelry  

You can never go wrong with some classic silver jewelry. If you prefer a more simple look, opt for thin hoops and a plain bangle, but if you prefer more of a statement piece, take a look at these sterling silver cross necklaces by Roma

Combat Boots 

If you’ve got more of an edgy style, you need to get your hands on a pair of combat boots. These are great when paired with skinny jeans, cuffed jeans, or even a plaid skirt. 

Nude High Heel 

A nude high heel is a must-have in any capsule wardrobe because it can be paired with a wide range of outfits. Make sure to find a pair that is extra comfortable. If not, here are some hacks to help with sore feet. 

Investing in one or two new trends a season is harmless. However, you quickly begin to burn a hole in your pocket when you’re constantly purchasing items that quickly go out of fashion. 

Not only this, but fast fashion is one of the world’s worst polluters. Therefore, purchasing high-quality and timeless pieces will be beneficial for both your bank account and the planet.
