Building the perfect capsule wardrobe can take time and patience. Finding the ideal pieces that are both versatile and timeless is just such a great feeling! There are certain clothing staples that every wardrobe needs and can help build the foundation of a great capsule wardrobe.

Basic pieces, like a great pair of jeans or a white t-shirt, may seem obvious but it isn’t always easy to find the right products that fit well and have good lasting power. Look for jeans with a little bit of stretch to make them comfortable and well-fitting. Darker jeans with a little bit of distress, like this YSL pair, look classy and comfy.

A great knit in a neutral colour is always a classic. In this country, a warm jumper is a must, and this Victoria Beckham white knit is very flattering and will go with jeans, skirts, or over a bodycon dress. A classic tote bag, also in a neutral colour, is a great way to tie everything together and keep all your bits and bobs together in one place.

An LBD and a trench coat are absolute essentials. A trench coat in a classic style, like this Burberry jacket, can be used for every season and the beige colour means it can be paired with most items. This Dolce & Gabbana black dress is a great style to make work for the office or an evening out. The button detail gives it a bit of something different without being overpowering. Wear it with white sneakers and a denim jacket in the summer or add tights and a polo underneath in the autumn.

Finally, a pair of nude pumps can be handy to pull out for all occasions. These Louboutins have the iconic “red bottom” to add a flash of opulence. This Chanel necklace also features an iconic emblem, you can throw this over any top or jumper to make any outfit a little bit more flashy whilst still looking timelessly stylish.
