French fashion designer Coco Chanel once said that simplicity is the key to true elegance. Nowhere is this more evident than in a capsule wardrobe. Building a capsule or minimalist wardrobe simply means buying a few quality pieces of clothing, and using them as the basis for all your outfits. So, if you're looking to streamline your morning routine, start with our top tips on creating a personal collection using the clothes you already own, along with a few suggestions for key garments from our womenswear collection that you could include. When every piece of clothing you own is strategically chosen to work with other garments in your closet, it minimises your risk of buying something you'll regret. You can bid farewell to the guesswork that goes into deciding what to wear every morning and approach your outfits with confidence, knowing that everything will look good together — even when compiled at the last minute. Before you head to your nearest high street to purchase more items, it always helps to 'shop' your existing closet for basic pieces you can use to build your capsule wardrobe.
The term 'capsule wardrobe' was coined by a London boutique owner called Susie Faux. She believed a wardrobe should consist of a few essential items of clothing that will never go out of style and can be reworked and re-worn every season. However, seasonality must be taken into account. This is why, season to season, the smart and sartorially savvy move is to make your capsule wardrobe time-frame friendly. Spring and its emotions can be erratic. From blazing sun to rumbling downpours, from sweat to shivers, it is tumultuous. Practicality, ease and sharpness is the perfect combination for a capsule closet.
