Pieces With Mileage Building a Capsule Wardrobe - Femme Connection

The capsule wardrobe is a new and sustainable movement in the fashion world that involves investing in around 10 quality basic pieces. This often includes black pants, a white shirt, blazer, and a skirt. By investing in quality basics, or the capsule, you can then purchase statement pieces to accent the capsule wardrobe and be on trend without constantly needing a whole new outfit. The capsule wardrobe is full of items that make you look and feel good, so make sure they are well fitted and comfortable. These pieces have mileage and will last through different seasons and trends. Here are some of our favourite picks for starting to build your capsule wardrobe!

The Blazer

A substantial blazer will take you far in the office and for daily life. The best part is that it is a layering piece, so you can wear it year-round. With a structured and tailored jacket, you can layer it over a dress, pair with a shirt and pants, or even throw on top of a tee shirt and jeans.

Your Go to Pant

Find your perfect pair of pants and never let them go! A flattering black pant is an essential for your capsule wardrobe - they elongate your legs and serve as the perfect base to any bright colours or statements you choose to rock with them.
