“Buy less, choose the best and make it last.” -Vivienne Westwood.
Creating a closet that defines your style statement and makes you feel comfortable at the same time is not easy. It requires an understanding of fashion, your body, and trends. Yet, once you have developed a clear image in your mind, there is no going back.
In fashion terminology, it is known as Capsule Wardrobe. It means you need not spend money on buying multiple pieces of clothing. Instead, you need to make smart choices for your clothes, shoes and accessories.
What could be these smart choices? Let’s find out!
- Penny Loafers
Originally designed for men, penny loafers have now created their own place in the women’s closet. They are timeless and instantly elevate your overall appearance. You can pair them with jeans, pants, skirts, dresses, shorts and whatnot. Unlike the heels, you can spend all day in loafers without hurting your feet.
For the past 2 years, every person has been working or studying from their home. Needless to say, this has significantly impacted the way people dress up. Now, the preference is given to comfort. And what’s the most comfortable apparel? Yes, you guessed it right! It is sweatpants and sweatshirts. From rocking street style to couch potato, you can style sweats in countless ways.
- Leopard Print
Who said leopard prints are out of trend? On the contrary, they are great for every season. For instance, in winter, you can upgrade your simple outfit by adding a leopard print coat. Similarly, to create a Fall style, you can wear pointed-toe slip-on flats in the same print to match the vibe. In summers, you can pair a leopard print t-shirt with denim to add an edge to your look. Not to mention, there are numerous ways in which you can style t-shirts to accentuate the outfit.
- Straight Leg Jeans
Long gone are the days when skinny jeans used to rule over the fashion industry. Now, high-rise and straight-leg jeans have taken over. And they are here to stay FOREVER! After all, they are comfortable, suit every body type, and go well with almost everything. Looks like a Canadian tuxedo, off-duty and retro style can be easily created with these jeans.
Perhaps, it won’t be wrong to say that “Minimal efforts and maximum comfort” is inspired by straight-leg jeans.
Watch is the most basic yet classic accessory that is a must in every closet. If you don’t have one already, then it’s perfectly fine. You can get one from your mother and create a vintage collection. No matter what the occasion is or with whom you are meeting, adding a watch to your outfit will surely help create a great impression.
Wrapping it up!
Creating a capsule wardrobe is a great way to understand your own style as you get to experiment with different looks. Not to mention, it also helps in controlling the habit of reckless spending. That means you’ll actually save more than what you spend. Isn’t it great?
