Six staples to build a capsule wardrobe

Blazer

Nothing can take you from the boardroom to dinner with as much ease as a blazer. A classic, versatile piece that creates a put-together feel to every outfit, blazers are bringing all sorts of new trends to life. So, no matter if you’re a boxy-fit blazer fan, or into a more tailored, shapely ones – there is a style and fit for everyone. It’s also a fantastic piece to modernise a more feminine look.

Tailored pant

A tailored pant has always been a classic wardrobe staple, but these days, they’ve become a lot more versatile. Not solely reserved for corporates, you can edge up a tailored pant and blazer set by pairing them with a casual white sneaker and tee. This makes them an ideal additional to any capsule wardrobe.

Structured white tee

Finding a flattering white tee might seem like a simple task but tracking down a piece that truly ticks all of the boxes, from comfort to fit, is no easy feat. Which is why we’ve done the hard work for you – check out our Reels video so find out which one we chose for your capsule wardrobe – and hold onto it!

Button-up shirt

Borrowed from the menswear section, but made in better prints and colours, the button-up shirt never fails to strike an effortless balance between looking casual and polished. Its versatility means you can wear it with almost anything – jeans, shorts, skirts, even under dresses and vests. An essential in your trans-seasonal wardrobe.

The ‘shacket’

The lovechild of a button-down shirt and an oversized jacket, the shacket looks like a shirt, but layers like a jacket. It’s heavy enough to provide some warmth, but not too heavy for when the Aussie sun decides to glare down a little harder. Which is why this piece is the perfect middle-ground staple for any capsule wardrobe.

A white sneaker

If there’s one shoe that absolutely belongs in your wardrobe, it’s a white sneaker. This simple, monochromatic staple combines versatility and fashion, making it a timeless piece for any capsule collection. Our favourite thing about this particular staple? Almost every person rocks their own unique version of it! Not to mention, white pairs well with just about everything and is definitely an attention grabber.
