The Ultimate Guide To Designing A Capsule Wardrobe!

The capsule wardrobe is something that every woman should get her head around! It comprises a few essentials that can be dressed down, dressed up and worn at pretty much any occasion. This is a really smart way of designing your clothes collection and it will save you a lot of money. Just vamp up old favorites with a few new accessories now and then. There are certain things that you can get away with buying cheaply, but every item in your capsule wardrobe should be a piece of finely made clothing that will last a long time. Here are some closet essentials that every wardrobe should have:

Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans are a brilliant item for your clothing collection as they are so versatile. Team them with flats and a baggy jumper and a slouchy bag for a casual look, or add a pair of ankle boots and a glitzy top for a more sophisticated look. Skinny jeans are only flattering on somebody that isn’t too overweight, so if you don’t think you can pull them off (literally!) then choose a pair of black leggings and a simple black skirt instead. You’ll still reap the benefits because your calves will look more slender, but you can cover up your bum a bit more. Whether you go for a skirt or a pair of skinny jeans, it’s always good to find a pair with pockets on the back as they make your bum look smaller.

A Multi-Use Shirt

Shirts are really useful – they go beautifully under a skirt or trouser suit for a really professional look. Or, tuck them into a pencil skirt or even a mini skirt for an edgy party look. Buy a shirt that is really well made so that it lasts you a good long time – you’ll be wearing it a lot! Make sure it is easy to wash and iron too so that it always looks its best.


Every wardrobe should have a good pair of pumps in it – pumps are perfect for so many occasions, particularly daytime ones. You should also have a pair of heels that go with everything – that way you don’t have to go home after work, just throw your pumps in your bag and pop the heels on for an instantly more glamorous look! Opt for black shoes because they are more likely to go with whatever you are wearing.

The Little Black Dress

Every woman needs a little black dress in which she looks and feels amazing! This is your dress for every occasion – throw a suit jacket over it during the working hours, then in the evening add some heels, a shawl and a pair of earrings with round shaped diamonds and all of a sudden you are oozing glamour and style!

Having these basic wardrobe essentials will make your life so much easier – you’ll never be stuck for something to wear ever again! Make it your mission to grab these vital elements for a capsule wardrobe and you’ll spend far less time getting ready and far more time enjoying life!
