Build a Capsule Wardrobe with These Transitional Pieces

Have you ever been guilty of announcing the common line ‘I have nothing to wear’ while staring at a wardrobe full of clothes in frustration? You may have subconsciously been buying into the fad trends of the year and are now looking for clothing that actually represents your personal style and not a fleeting TikTok buzz trend.

Building a capsule wardrobe could be the answer you’re looking for, enabling you to build basics and a closet full of staple pieces that represent and empower you, without the influence of fast fashion trends. You will never have that dreaded feeling of ‘I have nothing to wear’ again, as you text the group chat announcing you’re not coming as you can’t find an outfit that fills you with confidence.  

Timeless pieces will undoubtedly outlive any fad trends that 2022 will throw our way. Explore your style without being led by the latest trend that will only last approximately 5 minutes. Instead, learn to understand your style and invest in enduring pieces you will never get bored of wearing. An estimated £140m worth of clothing heads to landfills each year in the UK! So why not invest in a wardrobe that will not only make you feel good but will also do the environment some good? 

To start building your capsule wardrobe you need to consider what clothes bring you comfort, confidence, and fulfilment. Start by looking on Pinterest and saving any outfits that you truly love. Also, begin to think about a colour pallet so you can always cohere any outfit, what colours suit you and what colours make you feel fearless? Finally, consider the longevity of items of clothing, you know denim will forever be a staple piece, so go for any jean style that compliments your personal style. 

Imagine opening your wardrobe doors to endless possibilities of coordinating outfits that make you feel like you. Transitional, timeless pieces are the way to go! Here are 5 classic items to get you started and revolutionise your style… 

Trench Coat

This must-have coat of the century is a wardrobe essential – the fashion staple that never goes out of style. This transitional piece can take you from summer to winter, from layered over a cosy hoodie to elevating a mini dress and boots. The essence of any wardrobe, a trench coat can be dressed up or down to take any outfit from sophisticated casual to elegant and distinguished. 

White Sneakers

From New Balance to Yeezy to Superga there are so many different styles to explore, but you can’t go wrong with a classic, white pump. A simple way to put an effortless spin on any outfit. Although you might want to get some crep protect for the winter months, this transitional trainer elevates any fit from black jeans and a trench to a floral dress. 

Oversized Blazer

Recognised as a symbol of style, the structured yet oversized silhouette is the key to enhancing any outfit. Transforming a hoodie and jeans from slouchy to chic or layering over a satin midi dress for a cultivated finish, there are endless options to how a blazer can expand your wardrobe. The epitome of a capsule collection.  

Shoulder Bag

A classic 90’s style shoulder bag has truly stood the test of time; this long-established accessory is a practical essential that can suit any look from day to night. The sleek silhouette fits comfortably under your arm and converts any outfit from lifeless to bold and graceful. Choose from which texture, pattern or colour best suits your style, from black patent leather to florescent purple sequins (Sex and the City OG’s will know). 

Leather Trousers

These tailored pants might be the best garment to ever endure in your closet. Not only are they the most comfortable pants you will ever wear, but they also hug the figure naturally while adding a bit of spice to any outfit. Styling with knitwear or sweaters through the day for a classic yet cosy look or pair with a corset or camisole come night for a minimal yet desirable look.
