A capsule wardrobe is basically a mixture of several key classic pieces – clothing and accessories – which can be worn together in various different ways.
There are several benefits of building a capsule wardrobe.
Firstly, it will make your life A LOT easier when it comes to deciding what to wear every day.
Secondly, you will always look trendy and well put together with minimal effort.
And lastly, it will save you money, as you will invest in just a few key pieces which will last a very long time.
Building a capsule wardrobe can be difficult to start off with, and it often involves a big investment up front.
But, it is definitely worth it.
The key thing is to take a look at all your clothes and make sure they are in colours which will all work together.
We have put together some of the pieces which you need in your capsule wardrobe – take note!
1. White Tee
My husband loves this type of outfit. An easy, classic tee for the win! Do you remember when I posted my favorite white tee back in June? Well this is the new, updated tee from that same brand. It has a raw hem and the perfect v neck. Just $16 right now and multiple colors. I bought 3 ?. Sharing details on these under $60 jeans and others later on InstaStories (hint: size down 1). Details through link in profile or with a screenshot. @liketoknow.it #liketkit http://liketk.it/2s5cL
One thing you should definitely invest in is a good white t-shirt.
It can be any style you want, but just make sure it isn’t see through.
This is one thing which you really need to consider when buying a white tee.
A good idea is to buy a t-shirt which is slightly oversized – these style of top will always be in style.
2. Biker Jacket

A biker jacket is a key staple piece which goes with so many different other items.
It looks fab with jeans, dresses, shorts and jumpsuits.
You could get a classic leather jacket or maybe even a suede version like in the outfit above.
For a capsule wardrobe, it would be best to stick to a neutral colours like black, grey or brown, so that it goes with as many different pieces as possible.
3. A Pair of Jeans (or Several)
My black clothing ban has been LIFTED! Video on the whole shebang coming this Sunday. Conclusion: my pile of washing is huge.
You probably have several pairs of jeans in your wardrobe anyway, but if you don’t, then it’s definitely time to invest.
Get some jeans which fit you properly, look super flattering, and feel comfortable to wear.
If your budget allows, get some jeans in indigo, pale blue and black.
4. Oversized Shirt
“Just take loads, I’m sure one will turn out ok!” Thanks for the ? @lydiaxcollins
A great piece for wearing to the office, but also for more casual days; an oversized shirt is a super flattering and comfortable piece to wear.
The shirt is a staple piece which will never go out of style, so maybe buy a couple in different colours.
Seriously in love with this oversized grey jumper from @cottonon @westfieldbelconnen. Keeps me warm and makes me cool ? #love #joy #jumper #ootd #bloggerau #instadaily #instagood #photo #daily #fashion #stylist #canberrablogger #follow #styling #followme #ootd #canberra #canberrainfluencer
An essential for the cooler days, a gorgeous soft jumper will prove to be very useful in your capsule wardrobe.
You could buy a turtle neck, a v-neck or maybe a crew neck style jumper.
Or perhaps invest in several in some varying neutral colours.
6. A Boyfriend Blazer

A smart and professional option, the boyfriend blazer is an indispensable item which will serve you well.
Team it with some tailored trousers for the office, or dress it down with some denim skinny jeans.
