Work & Play | 5 pieces every capsule workwear wardrobe needs

Capsule wardrobe for style savvy women

The idea behind a capsule wardrobe has been around since the 70’s, the focus is to have a smaller amount of diverse items which you can put together into a multitude of outfits. Invest in key, versatile, high quality pieces that you love, and that transcend trends and seasons and will leave you ready to take on the world.

Mastering the art of a capsule wardrobe is also a great step into more conscious consumption. By investing in key items, you will be less influenced by fleeting trends and more led by timeless pieces that are made to last; this is a step in the right direction at reducing fast fashion and throwaway culture. Our Classiques collection was designed with timeless fashion in mind.

What items should be in my capsule wardrobe?

Add some bold patterns or different textures into your repertoire - just try to keep colours neutral. These will make your outfit feel a bit special and the ‘ooh-la-la’ every work wardrobe needs.
