Wardrobe Essentials for Less

As our Winter Sale is still in full swing we thought that we would put together a guide on how to build a staple wardrobe. Sales of any kind can be very overwhelming and it is very easy to get caught up in them, especially when you come across a good deal. This can cause us to impulse buy and end up with items that we won’t get a lot our wear out of. With this in mind, we will include staple pieces from our Winter Sale that you will get a lot of wear out of and have for years to come. 

How to build a capsule wardrobe

Building a capsule wardrobe doesn’t mean you have to go out and purchase loads of clothes. To build a capsule wardrobe you will actually end up having fewer clothes than you thought. Before you go out and buy anything go through your own wardrobe and have a look at what you have. Get rid of any clothes that you haven’t worn in the past year or so or anything that hasn’t stayed in the best condition. Once this clear-out is complete it will be easier to see what you have and what you need.


Another tip when building your capsule wardrobe is to consider your lifestyle. If you wear a uniform to work and work 5 days a week then you won’t need to buy as many professional clothing items, meaning you will just need comfortable pieces for relaxing at home in the evening or clothing to wear to any hobbies you may have such workout clothes for going to the gym or sports clothes for playing sports. Once you have made a list of the items you need for during the week you must then consider what you have for wearing at the weekend for wearing to town, visiting friends or family, going out for a meal or to a bar with your friends. An easy way to plan these looks is by sticking to a colour palette so that you can easily mix and match. 

What should my wardrobe consist of? 

Now that we have explained how to build your capsule wardrobe we will now share what pieces are essential for your wardrobe.


Black Jeans 

A well-fitting pair of black jeans are essential in everyone’s wardrobe. They can be worn day or night and can be dressed up or dressed down. This pair by 7 For All Mankind is a slim fit, when choosing jeans for your capsule wardrobe be aware of the fit and how you are going to wear the jeans as loose-fitting or baggy jeans aren’t dressy. You can view our entire collection of jeans here. 


White T-shirt

You can never go wrong with a crisp white T-shirt. They can be a very effective piece worn either alone with a pair of joggers or undeath a blazer and styled with a pair of jeans. The options are limitless and this one by Calvin Klein will never date with the addition of the simple logo gives it that something extra whilst still being minimal and chic.

Knitted Sweatshirt 

A knitted sweatshirt is another piece which is essential for building a capsule wardrobe. They are perfect for wearing to work if you work in an office or for styling with jeans and wearing them at the weekend. Investing in a good quality piece such as this knitted sweatshirt by  Tommy Hilfiger featured here will last you for years to come and a piece that you will wear and wear again. When picking out your knitted sweatshirt sticking to your colour palette will allow you to mix a match with different outfits which will allow you to get more wear out of them.

Smart Jacket

A smart jacket will always come in handy no matter what your lifestyle by be. An occasion will also pop up when you need a smart jacket and you don’t want to be left in a stressful situation where you have to make a quick decision and end up spending a fortune. With this in mind, we recommend picking up a smart jacket such as this one by Milestone whilst it is  featured in our Winter Sale. You can view our entire collection of smart jackets here which are also in our Winter Sale.


Polo Shirts 

A polo shirt is often an overlooked piece but is actually essential when building your capsule wardrobe. They can be worn alone in the summer or layered in the Winter. They are quite a casual piece but can look quite stylish when styled underneath a knitted sweatshirt. Some polo shirts are very casual but this one by Boss is more stylish and gives off a dressier more luxurious look. You can shop our entire collection of polo shirts here.
