Create a capsule wardrobe, and you’ll always feel like you’ve got plenty of options when choosing what to wear.
A capsule wardrobe is a carefully picked selection of high-quality, timeless pieces you can mix and match in different ways. Everything gets plenty of wear, and you always feel like you have a new outfit to enjoy. Find out how to create a capsule wardrobe with our designer team’s top tips.

Easy ways to build your capsule wardrobe

When thinking about how to create a capsule wardrobe, certain pieces are a must. These include a classic tee, a smart jacket and an ever-comfortable pair of trousers you can wear day and evening. Then, try personalising your collection with elevated, statement designs. “Colour and print don’t just make simple pieces feel like new outfits – they lift your mood the second you slip them on.”

A capsule wardrobe is a small collection of versatile clothing that you can mix and match to create numerous outfit combinations. It's about quality over quantity and embracing your personal style.

Three capsule wardrobe tips

Opt for quality

Choosing quality is the first step in creating your hardworking capsule wardrobe. By selecting finely crafted garments made from premium fabrics, you’re ensuring your collection stands the test of time. High-quality pieces elevate your look with their superior fit and pristinely finished appearance. Plus, they're built to last – retaining their shape and looking fresh, even after repeated wear and washing.

Discover plenty of high-standard, carefully selected fabrics in our latest collection. Pure silk, gentle cotton and soft, beautifully drapey jersey – we single out the finest fabrics so you can feel special in every outfit you wear.

Personalise your collection

Create a collection to suit your style, and you’ll enjoy a truly wear-forever wardrobe. Let your style preference shine through in the colours, textures and designs you choose. If you lean towards understated looks, fill your capsule with clean lines, neutral hues and quality fabrics like silk and cotton. If you prefer jewel tones or love wearing premium knits, take the same approach – pop a few more of these styles in your capsule collection.

Add accessories

Accessories are invaluable when creating a refined and adaptable capsule wardrobe. Jewellery, bags and scarves might seem like the finishing touches, but they have the power to transform your every look. Swirl a luxury silk scarf around your neck and a simple tee is suddenly ready for evening. Change your bag, and your favourite dress has a whole new feel.
