Basic Extraordinaire: Capsule Wardrobe

Basic Extraordinaire: Capsule Wardrobe


Style defines a person more than fashion does. Fashion trends being short-lived, coping up with them makes you splurge time and again. While spontaneous shopping becomes a go-to plan of action on weekends, some outfits don’t even get to see the light of the day more than a couple of times. For women with a fine choice, but a tight budget, it’s best to invest in key statement pieces and coordinate them well for an extravagant look for different occasions. So, if you’re game to up your style streak with the best of fashion but your budget isn’t following suit, curate the perfect capsule wardrobe that guarantees all-time head-turning appearances.

Solos & Separates

Prioritize classics that range from versatile casuals and can be built to dressy ones. Cleverly picked separates like a silk camisole, crop tops or even singlet dresses are something that you can rock for a casual day out as well as a formal dinner. Layer it with a jazzy jacket to up the statement a notch and pair it with sleek or oomphy bottoms for the look desired.

Statement Layers & Co-ordinates

Layering gears can also give a new life to any demure look in a snap. Invest in good dressy and understated jackets or choose to swap the layer from your co-ord with something new. Do not stick to the same combination just because it looked good the last time you wore it. For well-punctuated looks, simply add a third layer to your ensembles with trendy jackets and capes to revamp it.

Solid Staples

Ruling out multi-coloured ensembles is the perfect way to minimal power dressing. Incorporating two or more colours shift focus from the appeal, making your outfit look inexpensive. Monochromes seemingly lend a more enhanced impact. Think muted pastel tones or classic jewel tones. Expert tip: Play with tonal embellishments or ombre tones that are timeless avoiding unvarying floral, paisley and other trend-led patterns.

Clever Cuts

A clever nip and tuck can make your outfit look custom made. Slouchy silhouettes are best set aside for lounging purposes and should never be entertained in a mindfully curated capsule wardrobe. Form-fitted silhouettes like bodycon dresses, crisp tunics are a necessity.  Focus on choosing silhouettes that complement your body type the best while investing in ready to wear ensembles.
