All the best things come in capsules. Medicine. Space food. Time. And, naturally, clothes. Not in a download-your-outfit-from-the-internet way, the capsule wardrobe is far simpler than that. It’s the answer to every instance when you looked at your wardrobe and wondered, “What shall I wear today?”
Ostensibly invented by boutique owner Susie Faux in the 1970s, it’s really an idea as old as getting dressed – a small, curated collection of clothes that all work together, in almost any combination, that covers every conceivable base. It’s timeless, trans-seasonal, immune to the vagaries of trends and fashions, but also a great base to which you can odd the side-stripe jogger or embellished jacket, should you so wish.We all know how relatively easy it is to pull off neutral looks made up of black, white, navy and grey, but if you really want to stand out from the pack, it’s time to start embracing bolder hues.
