How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe

How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe

The colours, the weather, the seasonal food, the holidays – we can't help but fall in love with autumn every day again and again. To add another reason: the colder temperatures mean we can wear layer upon layer of our favourite pieces. But where to begin when it comes to building a sustainable capsule wardrobe for the new season?

1. Choose your colours

It all begins with a simple combination of black and white. Then comes the fun part: add two more neutrals and one eye-catching shade. You can pick any colour you like and you know looks good on you; the accent shade adds a pop of colour, rounds up all the others and connects the stylings into modern outfits.


2. 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 simple 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.

3. Stick to quality & shop consciously

When shopping, do it slowly and consciously. Try not to be impulsive and remember that it’s the quality of materials, the design and the production process that determines how a piece performs and for how long it will keep you company. 

4. 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.
