Tired of feeling like you have nothing to wear despite an overflowing wardrobe? We get it, which is why we’re taking things back to basics with a number of classic, core pieces that can be interchanged with existing clothes in your wardrobe to create various stress-free outfits. Here’s our take on the seven fashion essentials worth investing in that make up the basis of your very own capsule wardrobe…
1. A Leather Jacket
It’s not until you’ve bought a great leather jacket that you realise just how indispensable it is in your wardrobe. They work best with jeans and a t-shirt for casual weekends and add an edgy coolness to evening outfits. Mix things up by choosing a fun colour that's sure to put a spring in your step, like this fab blush pink offering from Theory, or All Saints have a number of options in duck-egg blue and grey.
The perfect pair of jeans is a wardrobe essential; they’re probably the most worn bottoms in your wardrobe. We love the relaxed fit and summery light-wash denim of these AG Jeans (above). We're also big fans of the dungaree trend, which is a stylish and comfy alternative to dresses this season.
Arguably an obvious entry, but investing in some good quality linen or cotton t-shirts in a variety of neutral shades, along with a few Bretton stripe options are an easy, chic option you can always fall back on.
