Not know what a capsule wardrobe is? No problem. A capsule wardrobe was coined by Susie Faux in the seventies. It was used to name the essential pieces in a wardrobe that never go out of style. For example, a black or white tee and jeans are a year around piece. The black or white tee can then be augmented with seasonal pieces to bring it around to the twenty-first century. I have listed a few capsule pieces that do not go out of style below.
This black lace cami is from StyleBop. It is the perfect piece to go into your capsule wardrobe. I do have a strong belief to spend more money on your capsule pieces versus seasonal pieces. These pieces will last much longer than seasonal ones (because they go out of trend so fast); therefore, the quality needs to be much better. Since the quality is better, the price tag is going to be higher as well.
This beautiful Max Mara peacoat has a very very high price tag, but it will last you a lifetime. It will also last your kids a lifetime.
These 7 for all Mankind pair of bootcut jeans are made for a capsule wardrobe. I would have a pair of bootcut, skinny, and straight in denim and black in my closet. This way you can be prepared for any situation! You never know.. Your favorite celebrity might walk through the door!
