How to Build Your Ideal Capsule Wardrobe

How to Build Your Ideal Capsule Wardrobe

Conducting a sustainable capsule wardrobe – a selection of pieces you like, look good and feel comfortable in – may seem like a daunting task, but it’s actually easier than expected. It’s not about throwing out what you have and starting afresh, but rather about evaluating your current wardrobe, picking out your favourites and adding what might be missing depending on the season. But where to begin?

Choose your colours

It all begins with a simple combination of two that never grows old – black and white. Having a few great basics in either black or white does not only mean they will be stylish forever, but also that they are super simple to style. Then comes the fun part: add two more neutrals and one eye-catching shade. The neutrals we absolutely love are cream, sand and dark blue; any of them are guaranteed to work perfectly with each other. They also go well with black and white, and you can always opt for a monochrome look. For the eye-catching accent shade, pick any colour you like and you know looks good on you. From dusty pink to light blue and mint, the accent shade adds a pop of colour, rounds up all the others and connects the stylings into modern outfits.

Find your favourite all-year-round essential pieces

The secret to a capsule wardrobe is finding quality forever essentials that can take you from spring to winter and everything in between. This doesn’t mean a plethora of different pieces, but rather a selection of your favourites. For example, a classic oversized white shirt or a black top can be worn at any time of the year and thus make for a great start. Adding seasonal specials is much easier if you know what pieces you can always rely on.

  • Find your everyday basics

Smartly designed and super comfortable – just like any wardrobe basic should be. From tops to trousers, they should be designed to complement your figure and last through seasons.

  • Acquire your knitted essentials

Discover luxurious comfort with timeless knitwear to wrap yourself in time and time again.

  • A must have in every closet – a black dress

Find that one dress you can always rely on to make you look and feel your best.

  • Coat – to elevate the look

Elevate any look with a single piece that is chic and yet ready for any weather.

  • Accessories – to complete the look

Add an extra touch of glamour while keeping everything perfectly functional.

Stick to quality & shop conscious

The most important rule is that you only keep what you love – pieces that make you feel good, pieces that are versatile, well-made and make you excited about wearing them every time, no matter the occasion. Don’t hesitate to ask your friends and family what they think or search for inspiration in the outfits of the people you look up to. When shopping, do it slowly and consciously. Try not to be impulsive; instead, keep checking out a piece you like and see if the idea of purchasing it still resonates with you after a few days or weeks. Whether it’s a crisp white shirt, a great pair of trousers or a chic dress, remember that it’s the quality of materials, the design and the production process that determine how a piece performs and for how long it will keep you company.

Have fun mixing and matching

Once you have the pieces you absolutely adore, styling is a piece of cake. Choose any piece you want to wear and that comes to your mind first, no matter if it’s striking or plain, and simply start building from it. A dress with a coat, a shirt with a pair of trousers and a pullover, a skirt with a simple top and a cardigan – with smartly chosen pieces, the options are endless. Round up the outfit with well-made accessories and footwear depending on the occasion – and enjoy being your best-dressed self.
