April 16, 2018
The summer capsule wardrobe has got to be the holy grail of effortless style. Made up of a few select, timeless pieces that will work with on-trend items as well as each other, a capsule collection is a great way of refining your look. It’ll also be your saving grace in any fashion crisis. Here are ten must-have items to streamline your summer wardrobe.
Whether you’re sitting down for lunch in the sun or sightseeing on holiday, a sundress is a must for your summer wardrobe. Look to simple cotton fabrics, midi lengths, wraparound styles and tie waists to keep it cool and flattering, you can even dress it up to take it into the evening.
Is it even summer without a killer pair of sunglasses? Invest in some classic statement sunnies to finish off any outfit and stay stylish whatever the latest trend. Cateyes, aviators and wayfarer styles will stay eternally cool.
Some simple sandals that you can wear everywhere are a must for summer. Poolside sliders are now a sports luxe basic, while minimal leather sandals are a great classic to wear with everything from jeans to floaty dresses.
Invest in a good quality white tee for a head start when it comes to layering. You can wear it with suit trousers, jeans, shorts, skirts and even under blazers.
Find a classic pair of kicks that’ll take you everywhere in comfort and style. A fresh white pair will go with everything from cuffed tailored trousers to your latest denim.
Soft Or Sharp Tailoring
Give your summer capsule wardrobe a sartorial side with a classic shirt or blouse. Women can look to soft floaty blouses to tuck into pencil skirts and jeans, while men can opt for crisp white cotton or informal short sleeve gingham.
Whether it’s holiday time or just a weekend in the sun at home, a pair of lightweight trousers is a godsend when it comes to keeping your cool. Look to linen to keep the silhouette relaxed, in classic creams or pastels to stay in style season after season.
Beach Ready Bag
With basket bags taking over the arm candy stakes this season, now is the perfect time to invest in one for your capsule wardrobe. They’re great for the beach and beyond.
Summer Capsule Wardrobe Jeans
A good pair of jeans will anchor your summer capsule wardrobe, whether it’s a classic pair of skinnies or a more modern, relaxed fit. Look to designs that you can roll up at the cuffs to give you a choice of looks.
A timeless, elegantly styled watch is the perfect accessory to add to your capsule collection. It’ll give a refined finishing touch to anything from jeans and a tee to occasion wear. Try the Rose Gold Mayfair watch from the James Derby collection.
