How To Build A Stylish & Versatile Capsule Wardrobe

Keeping up to date with all of the newest fashion trends is never easy, is it? Not only is it tiring having to constantly monitor what’s in fashion and what’s currently trending, but it’s also extremely expensive to constantly update your wardrobe. It can feel like you’re continually spending money buying new clothes, to the point where it begins to feel a little wasteful.

Surely, there must be a way to look stylish and on trend without breaking the bank and filling your closet with a mountain of clothes? The answer is simple: to create a capsule wardrobe that you can use to create a wide range of different looks without breaking the bank.

The concept sounds great but, what is a capsule wardrobe and how does it work? This kind of versatile wardrobe is made up of a selection of simplistic, well-fitted and well made clothes that can be paired in a variety of different ways – combined with on trend accessories – to create multiple looks. This allows you to stay up to date with fashion trends without constantly buying new clothes.

Love the idea but not sure where to stay? Below are a few handy pointers for how you can create your own capsule wardrobe. Read on for everything that you should know!

Invest in quality items that will last

For creating a capsule wardrobe that will stand the test of time, it’s vital that you invest in quality items. Don’t buy cheaply made clothing, or the items won’t last. Instead, it’s better to invest in a few well made items, rather than buying a lot of poorly made garments.

Ideally, you want to pick items made of high thread count natural materials. They might cost more, but in the long-term they’re a much better investment, as these kinds of items will last. So, whether you’re buying a nicely cut pair of mom jeans, a selection of staple t-shirts, or a versatile denim pinafore dress, opt for well made, high-quality designs.

The same goes when it comes to browsing shoe stores for new shoes – make sure that you opt for high-quality designs and styles that are made to last.

Keep the colors neutral(ish)

When it comes to picking items for your wardrobe, you want to aim to keep the colours neutral – or as neutral as possible. The idea is that all the items should be able to be paired with each other, so the colours all need to work well together.

If you want to add a little colour into your wardrobe, consider sticking to natural-hued items, rather than bright and bold tones. Natural hues tend to work well in a range of looks, so can fit perfectly into a capsule wardrobe.

For adding pops of colour to your looks, accessories are a great tool. Bright, bold scarfs, floral printed hats, and handbags in wonderfully vibrant tones, all work well to give your look some colour.

There you have it, a guide to how you can build a versatile capsule wardrobe that will stand the test of time.
