So, what is a perfect capsule wardrobe? What are the things that are required for it? Which of the items are required to reach a level of perfection? Well, there are multiple things needed for that. However, for now, we will only discuss clothing items.
There is a wide variety of clothing items that are required for daily usage; however, there are certain that are essential for a capsule wardrobe. To be fair, everyone has a different idea for a perfect capsule wardrobe, which works differently for people with different tastes. But, still, a question remains. What are those capsule wardrobe items essential for pretty much every lady out there? Let’s find out.
Let’s start with the most important part of creating a perfect capsule wardrobe; tops. Of course, items like shirts, T-shirts, singlets, and more are essential for everyday wear.
When it comes to the colors, according to us, owning a pair of black and white T-shirts is integral to almost any wardrobe, and one should not forget that. Well, about T-shirts is that everyone has their preferences. Some like them a little fitted, and some like them quite loose. While the fitted ones give you a sense of style, the loose ones tend to be more on the comfort side. Nonetheless, they can be worn with almost every kind of trousers and pants.
It is important for everyone out there to have at least one black shirt, one white shirt, and one blue shirt. For the material, cotton or a silk shirt is recommended for everyday wear. Nonetheless, linen shirts are pretty good for the summer holidays, but there is an issue with them that cannot be ignored. They get a bit too crinkled, and using them becomes quite challenging for some.
Well, the material people opt for often depends upon the weather or environment they live in or according to their profession, etc. However, the most preferred is quite a loose fit which often seems like an item directly coming out of your boyfriend’s closet. The advantage of having a loose-fit shirt is that you can always tie them up if you’re going for a different sort of look. For example, styling them with a mini skirt and sandals in summer. During winter, you can wear it underneath a jumper or a long coat, and it will definitely look great.
Alright. For the next part, we’ll be talking about outerwear and starting with jackets.
- Trench Coat
A vintage Burberry coat will do the trick for most of your matters regarding outerwear. According to us, a trench must have a relatively slimmer line to look good with almost everything.
- Woolen Coat
Well, nowadays, it is extremely important to have a woolen coat in your wardrobe. It would be best if you had them in different colors, like one in tan, grey, and navy blue. However, that also depends on the weather you live in. Depending on which ones suit you best, you can also have only one in your closet.
- Black Blazer
If we were to make a list of must-haves, a black blazer would definitely make it to the top of that list. Well, if you’re only interested in buying one blazer, we suggest you go for the black one. That black blazer of yours should be double-breasted because it is more versatile and you can also wear them solely with a nice pair of trousers and some dapper heels in the evening, and in the daytime, you can wear it with a T-shirt or a singlet to get that perfect look. Regarding buying a blazer, it is suggested that you opt for the slightly oversized one but not be the in the category of too oversized as it might or definitely not work for most of your events or occasions.
- Leather Jacket
Next up that every wardrobe needs is a leather Jacket. Not the most ideal for the winter, but they are the most ideal for Spring and Autumn. For these two seasons, it works as a perfect addition to your outfit. A leather jacket, in general, is quite expensive, but it is a great investment if you’re looking for some style. One thing about these leather jackets is that they can work with both women’s casual and party dresses. Owning plenty of these in your wardrobe collection is not really necessary. Even one is enough for you for years. This is the reason that leather is a kind of investment.
Let’s get on with another one of the essentials in your wardrobe: jumpers.
- Chunky Knitted Jumper
In winter, almost every closet needs a chunky knitted jumper. To be fair, it’s not that important for you to own plenty of jumpers. However, owning just a perfectly knitted piece can do wonders for colder days. Of course, when it comes to the colors of it, it is totally up to you, but a black or navy or cream-colored jumper looks good with pretty much every bottom or upper layer.
- Cashmere Jumper
A cashmere jumper is quite the talk of the town these days, so owning it in different colors goes a long way. Grey, black, and tan are recommended as these are the most popular, and a crewneck fit is also recommended.
- A Fleece Jumper
A fleece jumper has probably taken quite the position in our wardrobe essentials as the last one, but it is in no way the most useless. On the contrary, a fleece jumper has quite the usage in the cold season. Of course, it is a perfect piece to wear at home, but that does not mean you cannot wear it outside. You can wear it under a leather jacket or a trench, depending upon your choice of styling.
So, this is the list of capsule wardrobe essentials you should definitely have to make the most out of pretty much every season there is.
