How many times have we been staring at a wardrobe full of clothes and said that we have nothing to wear? I think many of us will have said something like it many a time. To solve this problem, more and more people are turning to a capsule wardrobe so that they always have something to wear. Of course, the key pieces can be mixed up with some one-off fashion pieces. But generally, when you have a capsule wardrobe you are left with an endless amount of clothing options. Curious? Here are a few of the things that you need to get your capsule wardrobe started.


Vest Top


A vest top can be worn by itself in summer months or worn under shirts and tops for an everyday layered look. If you’ve got a shirt that is a little thin or see through, then wearing a vest top underneath takes it to a whole new casual level. Vest tops are inexpensive too. So you could get a few, including black and white.


Casual Tee


Having a casual, most likely short sleeved shirt, is needed in everyone’s wardrobe. One of the main reasons is that they are just so versatile. You can wear it with jeans or shorts for a casual look. You can throw a blazer over it or even wear to the gym. You could even look into custom t-shirt printing to create your own slogan tee. Then you’ll have something to wear for more casual occasions, as well as smarter ones.




Whatever the colour or style, a shirt is needed. You can wear one with a skirt for a business meeting, as well as tucking into a pair of jeans for a more casual, but still smart look. In colder weather, you can wear underneath a jumper for a smart but cute look. Shirts are so versatile and as long as you get the right size, can be really flattering too.


Little Black Dress


Whether you’ll be wearing yours to the office or out on the town, a black dress is a must for a capsule wardrobe. You can dress them up as well as down, depending on what shoes you choose and the accessories. Brogues and a scarf will make it much more casual, whereas heels and statement jewelry would be better for a party or event.


Jumper and Cardigan


These two are great for every wardrobe. They can really complete and outfit, especially when it is coming up to spring and you won’t need to wear a coat. A long waterfall cardigan can be a really flattering shape, and a shorter jumper would look good with jeans and a shirt.


For the times that you don’t need to wear a big coat but still need something to layer up with. You can wear to work at the office, but also keep it casual when you wear it over a hoodie and with boyfriend jeans. Choosing one that is fitted, but not too tight is a good idea so you can layer underneath.
