Livinf For Style- Top Tips for an Amazing Capsule Wardrobe

4 Top Tips on Creating an Awesome Capsule Wardrobe

 Do you have a wardrobe full of clothes and nothing to wear? Imagine having a wardrobe full of clothes that you actually wear and love!

To achieve this you need to start by creating a capsule wardrobe.
A capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items that don’t go out of fashion.
To create your perfect capsule wardrobe here are 4 of my top tips:
1. Dress for your body shape
Once you understand your body shape you will have a better idea on what style suit you. It’s important that you build a wardrobe full of clothes that fit properly and accentuate the bits you love ;-)
2.  Assess your Lifestyle

Look at your lifestyle and work out exactly what type of clothes you need. For example, do you work in corporate or are you a stay at home mum?
If you are a stay at home mum then you will need more casual and smart/casual outfits.

3.  Start with good basics

All successful wardrobe’s start with good quality basics. These will be the foundation to your wardrobe.
It's really important to love everything in your wardrobe including basics. If you love everything then you will feel confident which will make you look effortlessly stylish.

4.  Stick to neutrals

Sticking to neutral colours is a must for these capsule pieces so they can all mix and match easily.
Neutral colours include black, navy, white, grey, khaki and denim. All the neutral colours go together which will make it so much easier for you!
Winter can be a hard time to get dressed. It’s freezing in the morning and so tempting just to rug up with thick layers and not think too much about how it works together.
Here are some great options to start your capsule wardrobe this season and help you feel more stylish.


 Leather jacket

Kaja’s Mia Leather Jacket is crafted from the softest genuine leather.
Opt for a neutral colour, which will go with the majority of your wardrobe. I particularly love this cognac colour, which goes perfectly with black or light colours such as cream or white.

 Good fitting jeans

What would we do without denim? It literally goes with everything! It’s all about the fit when it comes to denim. Make sure you find a pair that you love and then invest in multiple colours.
I love these Tummy Trimmer Slim Straight Leg jeans from Jeans West


 Little Black Dress

This Sage Tunic from Kaja is perfect for Winter. Style with black opaque tights and ankle boots for a night out.

Accessories can really change an outfit and a great way to add your personality.
