The idea of a capsule wardrobe can sometimes get a bad rap for being boring or repetitive. In reality, a well-kept wardrobe is anything but boring, especially if it's filled with stylish, stylish pieces that you'll want to use again and again (plus, it's good for the planet and your pocketbook).
The easiest way to create an edited wardrobe with timeless pieces is to start with the essentials.
The idea is to put aside garments composed of polyester (a plastic derived from petroleum very polluting for the planet) and choose to buy fewer but quality garments. For example a good cover of pure 100% wool, without less noble components. The difference in money will clearly be higher but its duration will amortize the investment. A good classic can last more than 10 years, we know, while genres of dubious quality force us to change garments every season. We are ready to start this change of habit that is also a one-way street: soft fabrics on the skin are irresistible and timeless garments can look in a thousand ways.
Here are the basics to get you started.
Capes are the key to a successful capsule wardrobe, and an oversized black blazer is your best bet to pair with everything from a shirt dress to jeans and a good blouse.
We even love it with a rock t-shirt underneath (with a long-sleeved t-shirt underneath, well '90s). The idea is that you also take advantage of the clothes you wear in summer, throughout the year.
There's nothing quite like the feeling of luxurious silk against your skin. It is also a super versatile garment. With sneakers and jean jacket for the day or with heels and top for the night. His fall is always settling. In winter with a soft maxi sweater, it is an infallible equipment. The contrast of textures is always attractive.
We all have a cut of dresses that makes us feel comfortable and unique. No matter what yours is, the important thing is that it is your workhorse to wear with sneakers, sandals or boots.
It is a saving option to be impeccable when we do not feel like thinking about how to solve the look.
We can't talk about dream wardrobes without mentioning the trusted black dress. Made famous by Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany, the black dress has staying power.
Let's think of a portfolio that suits all looks and styles. In a unique model that perfectly supports all styles and adapts perfectly to our moods. That is the model that you have to add to the smart dressing room. Neither small nor huge, nor heavy nor textures that can wear easily. This model below is pure inspiration.
