Category: fashion and beauty

As the temperatures cool and the winter air creeps in, the urge to simplify our lives becomes almost instinctual. So, what better place to start this process than with an overflowing wardrobe overhaul? We bet amidst the chaos of clothing, there are pieces you haven't laid your eyes on in ages that can help form the backbone of an amazing autumn winter capsule wardrobe. What is a capsule wardrobe? It's the holy grail of simplistic dressing – a curated collection of staple pieces you can mix and match to create endless outfit possibilities. 

Before you start tossing pieces into charity bags and gearing up to head to Stockland Rockhampton to stock up on some new styles, consider your lifestyle. Are you a supermum juggling a million things at once? You’ll want to opt for a capsule wardrobe that’s all about comfort and practicality – think cosy knits, versatile denim, and sneakers. On the other hand, if your days are about power meetings and evening events, a more refined approach is in order. Tailored silhouettes, sleek outerwear, and chic accessories should be your go-to.  

Below we’ve created two capsule wardrobes ideal for the corporate woman and the cool mum. The best part? All items are shoppable at Stockland Rockhampton so we hope to see you soon!

Let's not forget about that versatile coat – the one that can be styled in countless ways, taking you from school runs to grocery runs without missing a beat. Top off your looks with a splash of silver jewellery from Michael Hill, Lovisa, and Wallace Bishop and some head-turning headwear (because even on the busiest days, a touch of style is non-negotiable). When it comes to shoes you can’t go wrong with some comfortable slides from Ghanda or a pair of dad sneakers Platypus Shoes. With this capsule wardrobe, you'll conquer the day in style – one outfit at a time.

For the corporate powerhouse juggling boardroom meetings and weekend brunches, a versatile capsule wardrobe is an absolute must.

It's all about finding those multifunctional pieces that allow you to seamlessly transition from office to off-duty. First up, you'll need an oversized blazer from Forever New in a rich, warm hue like chocolate, rusty brown or classic black. Pair this with a sleek midi skirt from City Chic or tailored pants and a simple tee for an effortlessly polished look. Consider adding a tailored waistcoat and trousers set to your capsule wardrobe as well. This set ensures you're always primed to make a stellar impression! For accessories, you’ll want a rotation of some key shoes like knee-high boots from Spendless Shoes and kitten heels from Novo Shoes. We also recommend opting for gold jewellery to complete your looks and a beanie or scarf for your commute.
