The month of January is all about making those resolutions that you try to stick to year in, year out. However, this year Tesco Mobile, along with frockadvisor, want to help you avoid all those bad recommendations, and make the best of 2016!
New Year, clear mind – well that’s what we’re always hoping for! This year make it a reality, and rid yourself of anything that’s bringing you down. And what better place to start than your wardrobe? It’s time to clear the clutter out and get working on those essentials you can’t live without. Read on to see our must-haves when creating an epic capsule wardrobe. Less is always more!
1.The White Shirt
It goes without saying that the white shirt is a standard requirement of any capsule wardrobe. Building an outfit around a white shirt is one of those simple pleasures in life, as it’s probably one of the easiest pieces of clothing you could ever wear. Tuck it, oversize it, layer it – the possibilities are endless and we can’t get enough of it.
2.The Basic Tank
Ah, the basic tank top – one of the most versatile phrases in the English language. Where we’d agree that if you have accumulated more than 5 tank tops, then yes definitely throw the rest away, we’d also agree that you’re right to think there’s potential there for your capsule wardrobe. Look at your tank top like a blank canvas. It’s screaming out to you “Do with me what you will!”, and display your creative mind.
3.The Reliable Shoe
No we don’t mean……crocs. We mean those Katharine Hepburn-esque elegantly sophisticated, comfortable shoes. Who says a flat heel can’t be sexy? For this capsule wardrobe, trade in your 8 inches for comfort and style.
4.The Day to Night Dress
Transitional outfits that take you from the office to the wine bar are ideal for time poor fashion girls. A capsule wardrobe is all about cutting out the nonsense and getting more efficient. Therefore a dress that supports your daily needs from beginning to end is a must!
If you invest in a neutral or dark pair of cigarette pants, you’re set for outfit success. Channel your inner Tilda Swinton and you’ll ooze nonchalant cool.
When choosing your blazer think power dressing. Some masculine tailoring can balance a skinny jean perfectly and works with a slew of different outfits. From a business meeting to a dinner party, a blazer is a requirement in any woman’s closet.
There you have it. The building blocks for a fully functioning wardrobe. With these pieces as your fashion foundation, your capsule wardrobe can only go from strength to strength. New Year, new you!
