Ever packed for a trip and arrived at your destination with a suitcase the airline labelled ‘HEAVY’ and still absolutely nothing to wear? Don’t beat yourself up – we’ve all been there and packed like that! You just hadn’t learned how to create the perfect capsule wardrobe… yet. Think a tightly-edited collection of clothes and accessories that you can mix and match into seemingly endless outfit combos. It’s super handy if you’re travelling – and even if you’re not, it can make choosing what to wear in the morning a cinch, leaving more important time for other things. Like snoozing.
The trick? Choose versatile pieces – think a basic black cami, striped tank and skinny jeans. (Pro tip: Simple cuts and a neutral colour palette make it easy to throw together outfits in a pinch.) Then add in a few pieces with personality – we’re talking bright sunglasses, bold, colourful sandals or a printed shirt. When you’re first building your capsule wardrobe, try laying everything out where you can see it and test different combos. Or fast-track the whole process with our ready-made 12-piece collection below!
