Project Wardrobe

capsule

We all know that I have a very minimalist approach with my wardrobe, it’s a shame the same can’t be said for my makeup collection but that’s a whole other blog post. To be honest, a capsule wardrobe hasn’t been a difficult thing for me to create as I’m so unbelievably picky with clothing anyway but here are my top tips when going about creating yours!

My capsule wardrobe – I stick to a neutral palette with mainly accents of cobalt blues and denims and my favourite pieces are featured in the image above (excluding my waterfall camel coat & ripped denim jeans) and are as follows from top to bottom:

& other stories scarf/COS striped tee/ASOS denim shirt/French Connection crew neck jumper/Reiss print jumper/Zara oversized grey jumper

Focus on quality – I avoid places such as Primark like the plague because with the mass producing, poor material and low cost, the quality just isn’t there and you can tell the difference between a Primark jumper and a jumper of higher quality, let’s face it. That being said, I also think Β a lot of high street shops have higher price points than Primark but the quality is still pretty drab and poor like Miss Selfridge for example but that’s just my opinion. I think spending that extra bit of money but alsoΒ aiming for higher quality with the pieces that you are going to wear the most is worth it and will make a huge difference.

Figure out what you love/loathe – For me personally, I hate OTT prints like paisley and florals and prefer more sophisticated, neutral and simple clothing pieces with accents of bright colours so I go for brands such as Whistles & French Connection where I can find a lot of pieces that fit my preferences. Figure out which shops fit your style and it will make it all a hell of a lot easier!

Assess the basics – Have you got everything you need? The basics like the t-shirts and the jeans are the foundation of your wardrobe so make sure that you’re really happy with your existing ‘foundation’ from which you can base your future outfits around.
