What is a capsule wardrobe?

"I revamped my (very aged) wardrobe. I now feel more comfortable about how I look and can put things together without too much thought as they all coordinate."

A capsule wardrobe is a collection of essential items of clothing - think jeans, skirts, jackets, trousers etc. - that won't go out of fashion and that can be paired with a variety of statement or seasonal pieces. The idea was coined by British boutique owner Susie Faux in the 1980s to encourage women to fill their wardrobes with high-quality garments that could be worn time and time again.

Fancy creating your own? Here are just a few reasons why you should switch to a minimalist wardrobe:

It saves time - avoid the dreaded 'I have nothing to wear' panic by opting for clothes you know suit you and look great together (hello snooze button).

- avoid the dreaded 'I have nothing to wear' panic by opting for clothes you know suit you and look great together (hello snooze button). It's pretty efficient - not only does it help us to be more picky when it comes to shopping for clothes (and hopefully save us a bit of money in the process), but it also helps us to make sure that we don't just stick to current, fleeting trends.

- not only does it help us to be more picky when it comes to shopping for clothes (and hopefully save us a bit of money in the process), but it also helps us to make sure that we don't just stick to current, fleeting trends. It means less mess - a streamlined wardrobe of staple pieces cuts down on clutter.

- if you're going on holiday, knowing the essentials you need to pack makes for one less stress. It helps you to be more sustainable - buying fewer pieces rather than opting for fast, throwaway fashion is better for the environment as it reduces waste. Just make sure you donate or recycle the clothes you are discarding.

How should you build a capsule wardrobe?

Building a basic capsule wardrobe is actually quite simple and overhauling your current collection can be a liberating experience. When it comes to your wardrobe, there are a few hard and fast rules to follow. Here are just a few.

1. Start by clearing out your wardrobe

"I have a good clear-out about once a year and if I haven't worn an item in a year I get rid of it."

The point of a capsule wardrobe is simplification - the sloughing off of excess and refinement of your style. To that end, it may be that you need to have a good clear out before you begin. Separate the stuff that you haven't worn in yonks, especially the dressier items that you seldom have occasion to wear, and the good-quality clothes that you already own.

Take the first pile to the charity shop, or sell it on eBay, and have a real think about how likely you are to need the things in the second pile in the future. In order to effectively streamline your wardrobe, you may be better off keeping one or two of your favourite items and selling the rest.

2. Choose quality

"I buy the majority of my clothes from charity shops. That way I can have labels and better quality clothes than I could afford new."

Cut and material is everything when it comes to smart-looking clothes, so choosing classic tailoring in quality materials will give you instant but lasting style, not to mention a high-quality collection of clothing. John Lewis' current season has a good selection of classic items. Always opt to spend a little more and buy a little less. Steer clear of cheap, throwaway clothes because that's exactly what you'll end up doing - throwing them away. They bulk up your wardrobe without really adding any value. Primark and the like may be easy on the wallet, but you'll pay for it in the long run.

3. Overhaul your underwear

"Look at your underwear, get measured for a bra, wear one that holds you properly, and buy new pretty knickers and foundation undergarments if you stick out in places you do not want to."

How long has it been since you gave your undie drawer an overhaul? Or got measured for a bra? It may be time to start again. Go back to basics and make sure you have black, white and flesh-coloured options that fit properly and sit comfortably. House of Fraser, Debenhams and Marks & Spencer all have in-store bra fitting services, so go and get yourself measured. Your bra size can fluctuate as you get older so it may be that you've been buying the wrong size for years.

4. Invest in a wrap dress

"A wrap or shift dress always looks good."

There's a reason Diane von Furstenberg's iconic style is still going strong today. The wrap dress has really stood the test of time - and for good reason. It's an almost universally flattering shape that can be dressed up or down with complete ease.

If you don't have one of these already, you'll never regret buying one. Snap up Boden's classic black wrap dress or go the whole hog and go for the classic DVF staple.

5. Always have a pair of slim trousers

"Smartish, straight or slim leg trousers in black or dark grey are the way to go."

Some styles just never go out of fashion, and a good pair of tailored trousers is one of them. Cigarette pants or slim leg - whichever you go for, make sure they're good quality and a neutral colour that goes with whatever you feel like that day, be it a splash of colour or a comfy sweater. Top it all off with a pair of flats and you're ready to go.

6. Mix and match

"I don't enjoy clothes shopping that much so tend to buy certain basics in two different colours then mix and match. I also stick to colours that I know suit me."

Quite possibly the best thing about a capsule collection is the number of outfit combinations that it allows for. When building your wardrobe, go for a mix-and-match approach and always shop with your other clothes in mind. One of the most common errors is buying an item that you soon realise doesn't go with anything you already own. Whether it's winter or summer, day or night, you'll never be stuck for what to wear if you keep this fail-safe tip in mind.

7. Get your colours done

"I had mine sorted in the 80s and I've never looked back. It means that everything in your wardrobe goes with everything else."

The concept of getting your 'colours done' has been around for a while, and it's a tried and tested way of making sure you stick to shades that complement your colouring. Visit Colour Me Beautiful to find a consultant who will assess exactly which colours you should be scanning the shopping rails for.

8. Find colourful or bold statement pieces

"My daughter bought me a gorgeous statement necklace this year in shades of green. It looks great!"

While it's good to keep a base of versatile, neutral colours in your wardrobe, brightly-coloured clothes are one of life's great pleasures. Focus on one splash of colour per outfit, keeping the rest of it fairly neutral.

Alternatively, team your outfits with fun accessories, such as a brightly-coloured necklace or a patterned scarf like this one from Boden. They will give your look an instant boost without being over the top.

9. But never underestimate the power of a black dress...

"For evenings, I have a couple of black shift dresses and a beaded black taffeta knee-length skirt. Add the jackets, bags, earrings etc. and it's amazing how many events are catered for. Keep it simple is my advice."

Choosing one really well-fitting black dress or skirt means you can add differing accessories to change it up for a multitude of occasions. Are you heading to an event with a smart/casual dress code? Go for fairly simple jewellery and shoes (flat shoes, even). Or, if you're going to a truly swanky do, break out the heels and opt for standout drop earrings. Et voilà - your 'going out' wardrobe expands dramatically.

10. And before you buy, find the most honest person you know

"My most successful purchases have been when I was with my daughter who is always brutally honest."

It helps if they're stylish as well of course, but, at the very least, shop with someone who will tell you if one of your intended purchases simply doesn't suit you. Honesty is the best policy, as they say.

Buying the basics - your wardrobe essentials checklist

"I have never followed what fashion dictates and prefer good-quality, classic clothes that never date and last for years."

What does the ideal capsule wardrobe for a 60-year-old woman look like? Well, believe it or not, it depends on your own personal style, but here are a few wardrobe staples we wouldn't be caught without and that you should consider adding to your collection.

1. Straight leg trousers

For straight leg trousers that don't sit too low, but do fit comfortably, try Marks and Spencer, or Boden for a good variety of lengths. This versatile piece of clothing really comes in handy, especially when you want to look stylish without having to put too much thought into your outfit.

2. Shirts and casual tops

Joules do a lovely range of casual, but stylish, shirts in soft cottons and pretty prints. If you're looking for a more tailored piece to dress up your straight leg trousers, Great Plains can almost always offer drapey longline tops that are universally flattering. White shirts are also a classic choice for your wardrobe that can be dressed up or down.

3. Good-quality, good-value underwear

Of course, Marks and Spencer can always be relied upon for good underwear, especially from the Autograph by Rosie range, but it's also worth considering TK Maxx for some real bargains on high end undies.

4. Non-frumpy knitwear

Hush is the perfect place to shop for knitwear that will keep you warm and cosy, but won't leave you looking like you're hibernating.

5. A decent pair (or two) of jeans

Do you usually only wear trousers? Jeans are your best friend. Team them with faithful classics, such as your favourite cardigan, jumper or flats. Again, Marks and Spencer are our go-to for comfy slim fit jeans in a stretch fabric. We also love black straight-leg jeans with a smart top for a dressier look.

6. The ideal wrap dress

Are you feeling fancy or frugal? The ultimate wrap dress is, as mentioned above, Diane von Furstenberg's classic, but we also love JD Williams for a wide range of wrap dresses that come in longer lengths. It's such a flattering cut so it's the perfect style to experiment with - why not try a bold colour or a subtle print you wouldn't usually go for?

7. The perfect LBD

Debenhams have a stunning array of little black dresses, from the straightforward and simply cut, to sparkly, lace, swing - the list goes on. When it comes to creating a minimalist wardrobe, it's always handy to have a trusty go-to dress that's guaranteed to make you feel great the minute you put it on.

8. A smart coat or jacket

Don't leave outerwear as an afterthought. A good quality coat that you can throw over anything is an undervalued essential. We love Marisota for trench coats, a timeless piece that will never go out of fashion, and also Sea Salt for their colourful jackets.

9. The finishing touches

Now you're sorted with the key pieces, it's time to think about those little extra details. Finding a few staple accessories is an easy way to add an extra dose of glamour that can elevate even the most basic of outfits. Here are the essentials:

A good quality everyday bag - whether it's a tote bag or a satchel, find a style you love in a universal colour (tan always looks classy). Debenhams have some great styles from different brands.

- whether it's a tote bag or a satchel, find a style you love in a universal colour (tan always looks classy). have some great styles from different brands. A clutch bag for special occasions - look for one with a chain handle so you don't have to carry it all night. Try the Accessorize sale to find one you love.

- look for one with a chain handle so you don't have to carry it all night. Try the sale to find one you love. A patterned scarf - if you want to add a splash of colour, a vibrant scarf is a subtle way to play with colour - and keep warm! During hotter months a lightweight silk scarf is also a classic finishing touch which you can also tie to the handle of a bag to mix up your look.

Jewellery - you don't have to spend a small fortune when it comes to adding a little sparkle. New Look and Debenhams have options that won't have you reaching for the credit card.

10. Best foot forward - the shoes to buy

It's better to have fewer shoes that you wear regularly rather than fork out for passing trends which are likely to look outdated quickly. Boots, loafers, trainers and pumps are all practical shoes that can provide comfort and style. Clarks and Marks and Spencer are good places to start looking.

When buying shoes, factor in functional elements, such as the cushioning and grip of the shoe. It's always worth having one pair of shoes for special occasions too, and a classic black or nude heel is a versatile addition to any wardrobe.

Look stylish everywhere you go: Here’s how to wear that new overcoat

Here we are, smack dab in the middle of the cold, wet winter. While you are undoubtedly trying to stay in and avoid the frigid temperatures in your neck of the woods, there are some instances when you must emerge from your blanket cocoon and venture outdoors.

When you do need to go out, you pile on the layers that end with a stellar overcoat that keeps you warm, dry, and stylish. Luckily you have already chosen the best men’s overcoat for you; now you just need the finer details to help you wear it confidently and keep you looking great. even if you’re eager to rush home and get back under the covers for the next Netflix binge.

Here is our starting point for wearing the overcoat the way it was intended.

Check the fit

What you have in the closet is what we’ll work with. Hopefully, you checked out our guide to buying an overcoat and got the right fit for yourself. Maybe you even got a stylish men’s wool overcoat. Regardless of what you picked, the size that you got will determine what you can wear underneath your coat.

For instance, you want the coat to be longer than your suit jacket and, most often, end above your knees. The sleeves should reach the first knuckle of your thumb — long enough to cover the sleeves of your jacket or sweater you have underneath it. Remember that the thicker your layers, the shorter the sleeves of your overcoat will be, making the size important.

Single breasted

If you picked up a single-breasted overcoat, you have an outerwear garment that can range from formal over your best suits to something more casual. It’s a bit of an elevated style, so the ultra-casual looks won’t always work best with this coat. A single-breasted overcoat is known for the single column of buttons down the middle and usually a skinnier lapel, similar to your best suits.

When dressing this coat up, make sure you button up the front and pair it with the right scarf, gloves, and hat to complete a look. The most stylish ensembles will make sure the coat and accessories complement the outfit underneath.

To dress this coat down, keep it open and pair it with a sweater and denim. If you wear a scarf, let it drape instead of knotting it around your neck.

Double breasted

If you chose a double-breasted overcoat, you are the pinnacle of class and style. This is the most traditional overcoat and is meant to elevate anything you wear with it. It’s known for its wider lapels and two columns of buttons, usually six buttons in total. The first thing to always keep in mind is that this coat is always designed to be worn buttoned up with the bottom button left open, exactly like your double-breasted suits.

There’s no need to attempt to dress this coat up; the job is done for you. Wear your suits underneath and jazz them up with the best accessories. Some of these coats have breast pockets, so if you’re feeling sassy, you can wear a pocket square just like you would with your suits.

If you’re trying to dress this coat down, don’t. A peacoat is a more casual double-breasted coat, but if you really want to wear this coat, we wouldn’t recommend wearing it with anything more casual than dress pants and a button-up.


If the duffle coat is your choice, you value variety and versatility. This coat ranges from ultra-casual to elevated dress ensembles better than any other on this list. This single-breasted coat is known primarily for the wooden toggle buttons. It’s casual enough to work with just about any look, but the coat’s military history helps it elevate everything in your closet.

When dressing this coat up, remember that it spans a wide range of uses. That means it’s just under the double-breasted coats in formality. If possible, remove the hood to keep it understated.

Just like it falls just below the double-breasted coat in formality, it sits just above the peacoat in casual attire. Keep the hood on and unbutton the coat to show off your simple sweater or henley underneath.


If you chose the Mackintosh as your overcoat, there are two reasons. One, you live in a place like the Pacific Northwest that sees a fair amount of rain, and you need the waterproof feature. Two, you really love the movie Casablanca. This coat features a waxed outer layer that keeps you dry in even the heaviest of downpours and a belt that keeps the coat nice and tight around your body in heavy storm winds.

Dressing this coat up consists of simply protecting your more formal outfits, such as your suit and ties. If it’s raining, the best practice is to ditch the scarf and button this coat up to your neck to keep your clothes underneath clean and dry.

While this coat will work with anything and is more for function than fashion, you could swap this out with more of a puffy or quilted jacket to protect your casual ensembles.


This is perhaps the most casual overcoat on this list, and that’s likely because it isn’t precisely an overcoat. A peacoat is generally cut much shorter than the rest of these overcoats, sitting about mid-thigh or higher. Because of this, it is best kept away from more formal events. As a matter of fact, if you like the double-breasted look, keeping a double-breasted overcoat for your formal looks and a peacoat for your informal looks isn’t a bad idea.

To dress this one up, you can wear it over a turtleneck for a classy look. If you want to show off a contemporary look, wear dark dress denim with a button-down collared shirt and a knit tie for a stylish and elevated casual outfit.

There’s no need to dress down the peacoat as it’s already a casual coat. If you want to create a classy casual look, though, reach back to the nautical history of the coat and wear it with navy chinos and a white T-shirt the way sailors wore it when these coats first appeared on the boats.

How To Dress For Your Body Type

If you are wondering how to dress for your body type, you will be happy to know that you have landed yourself in the right place, for we are here to help. In this article today, we are going to give you a thorough understanding of different body types and how to dress up accordingly. We know that sometimes when you are out there shopping, you pick the perfect dress and go into the trial room to see if the dress fits you but then you get disappointed. Well, let us tell you that the reason behind the disappointment is the lack of awareness of body types. When you are fully acquainted with your own body structure, flaunting your dream outfit becomes a reality right away. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to know about the different types of types that are there and identify which body type you belong to. So, please scroll down and give this article a read and find it out yourself.

How To Determine Your Body Shape – With Measurements

Your body silhouette is what your body type is, which is what we will discuss shortly. However, it is also important to know your vitals first, as much as it is to understand your body type.

Tip – Using cloth tape is better than a metal one. Let the tape be neither too tight nor loose; it should be snug to a point where you think it will slip. It probably will but hold on to it and give you the most accurate number.


Measuring your shoulder measurements is relatively difficult because it is tricky to hover the tape while keeping it intact. If you have people around, let someone else help you with this part, at least. Start at the tip of the shoulder (any side) and then take it around to the other side till the end meets the tip of the same shoulder. Remember that the tape should be very close to the shoulder. This way, you get the measurement of the widest point of your shoulder.


Stand straight before you do this. You need to measure the fullest part of your bust. Start by placing one end of the tape at the fullest part and wrap it around from under your shoulders to bring it back to where you started. You now have your bust size. Don’t let the tape squish your breasts; it should stick to your chest end to end.


Do not slouch your stomach or pull it in. Just stand as straight as you can. Start at the slimmest part of your waist above your belly button and below the rib cage; this is your natural waistline. Another way to find your waistline is to bend to the side. The point from where we bend is our waistline.

Wrap the tape around your stomach and bring it back to where you first started. If you are someone who usually wears clothes below your belly button, you might want to make a note of that number too.


You need to measure the circumference of the fullest part of your buttocks to get the measure of your hips. Start with one side of the hip and take it from the rear towards the other hip. Bring it back to the starting point. Do this exercise in front of the mirror so you know the tape is leveled throughout.

How To Determine Your Body Type And Dress Accordingly? – The Body Shape Guide

Simply put, your body type is the outline of your structure. Thus, understanding your body type helps with mapping clothes and tweaking them in a way that matches your style. The idea is to make sure the dresses we choose to sit beautifully and proportionately (or according to your body proportions) and enhance your looks for an even better-looking silhouette. Short, tall, slender, curvy, etc., do not determine your body type; the body parts do. Since all of us almost have a distinct shape, yet (our bodies) fall under bigger buckets, we need to delve into this a little.

P.S – If you want to be doubly sure and make it seem more than an eyeball measurement, your vitals can be used as the basis too. You can look at the math and be able to point the finger at the body type.

How To Dress For Your Body Types – 5 Different Types

1. What Is An Apple Body Shape?

You will fall under this apple-shaped (or oval-shaped) figure when you have a heavier upper body in comparison to your lower part of the body. People with this body type usually have broad shoulders and a bigger bust line, and that’s why it feels like the weight gathers around the midriff.

How To Dress For Apple Body Shape?

Since most of the weight and concentration is above the hips, the mid-riff appears heavier than the remaining body with a minimal waistline. So, the idea here is to take the attention away from that part of the body and highlight your strengths. That’s why you need to flaunt your legs or wear the dress with V or deep V necklines that create the illusion of an elongated torso.

You can also play with accessories like necklaces and earrings. The most important thing is to move the attention close to the face or, if you have nice legs, to the bottom.

Best Clothes For Apple-Shaped Body?

A-line or empire cuts are ideal for you. Wear printed dresses or patterned jackets that add a layer to shift the focus. Monochrome looks, dark colors, full or 3/4th sleeve dresses, and flowy tops will help. You could also wear flared bottoms, palazzos, etc., to create a balance. Also, since your shoulders are broad and you might already have a bigger bustline, ensure you wear the right bra.

StyleCraze Says Pick open cardigans with draped fits that are less clinging to accentuate the apple body type best. Ensure the garment ends below the hipline to lengthen the body, and ensure that the clothing skims over the torso and hips.

What Not To Wear When You Have An Apple-Shaped Body?

Avoid figure-hugging dresses or tops with skinny jeans; this will make it more visible. Try and replace the waist belt with an upper waist belt to strike a balance. Waistband trousers and skirts with elastic bands work well on this body shape.

2. What Is An Hourglass Body Shape?

You know when you’re an hourglass body shape, and so will the others. This body type is the most balanced of all with a proportionate top and bottom part of the body with a well-defined waistline. So when you look for dresses, choose the ones that do just that for you. It is a body to die for, so flaunt it and in the right way.

How To Dress For An Hourglass Body Shape?

Since you have a well-balanced figure, your dresses should do the same as well. The dress should sit well at the right curves and follow the outline of these curves. Make the most of it because not everybody has this!

Best Clothes For Hourglass Shaped Body?

Dresses that cinch at the waist will be your best fit. V or plunge V and sweetheart necklines help you flaunt your upper body. To flaunt your waistline, go with a belt at your natural waistline or below the belly button — either way, it only looks great. A-line dresses or similar cuts take care of working on the lower part of the body, and needless to say, body-hugging dresses are your thing because, why not?

StyleCraze Says Form-fitting, belted jackets are ideal. Short jackets that end just above your hips highlight your curves. If you are petite, opt for shorter jackets that end at your hips.

What Not To Wear When You Have An Hourglass-Shaped Body?

Almost anything looks great on this body type. But pairing it up with loose tops or bottoms might kill the look. What is the point, otherwise?

3. What Is A Pear Body Shape?

The pear-shaped body is all in the lower part of your body. Your butt and thighs are visually bigger than your upper body. So, make some space for that base, people. Thanks To Kim Kardashian and others, this body is a rage right now. You’re lucky if you’ve naturally got a figure like this or achieved this with workouts. It is the Best Pants For Pear Shaped Petites.

How To Dress For Pear Body Shape?

The advantage of this body type is that you can create an illusion of an hourglass figure if styled correctly. Your shoulders are narrow, and your hips are wide. All you have to do is to strike a balance. Or, wear outfits that enhance your lower body; either way works well.

Best Clothes For Pear Shaped Body?

Wide-legged pants, A-line skirts, or dresses with patterned or ruffled tops that add definition to the upper body look great. Skinny jeans with loose tops help create an hourglass illusion. Crop tops, sweetheart, V or deep-V, padded jackets and tops, scoop, or boat necks will balance your bottom.

What Not To Wear When You Have A Pear-Shaped Body?

Avoid skin-fitting tops, halter necklines, and loose bottoms unless you prefer the look.

4. What Is A Rectangle Body Shape?

The rectangle-shaped body is usually well balanced from the shoulders to the hips. So, there is not too much of a definition to your silhouette, and it’s fairly straightforward.

How To Dress For A Rectangle Body Shape?

Your arms and legs are the assets. So, focus on enhancing that. It’s like the hourglass figure minus the defined waistline.

Best Clothes For Rectangle Shaped Body?

Choose A-line skirts, ruffled and layered tops. Dresses that add definition to your bottom and necklines that add meat to the upper body. Sleeveless, strapless, and sweetheart lines are your thing. Blazers, long jackets, and capes add the much-needed drama here.

What Not To Wear When You Have A Rectangle-Shaped Body?

Avoid dresses that are overarching; they look very consuming and will not look great.

5. What Is An Inverted Triangle Body Shape?

The inverted triangle is the most athletic-looking body type. Your shoulders are much broader than your hips. So, your arms and shoulders need to be enhanced as much as possible; let’s work on them.

How To Dress For An Inverted Triangle Body Shape?

You have to remember to add definition to your hips and thereby to focus on creating a balance. Straight-cut jeans and dresses that naturally have an inverted V-look to them are all clothes that will suit your body.

Paola Farina says, “If you want to narrow the shoulders, you have to focus on the bottom by adding volume with fabrics, light colors, details, and prints (look at Kate Middleton). But many inverted triangles love their wide shoulders and want to maximize them. In this case, I work with padded jackets, horizontal stripes, and light colors on the upper part of the body.”

Best Clothes For Inverted Triangle Body Type?

Since your hips are much narrower than your shoulders, pencil-cut skirts, skinny jeans, etc., with any tops, will look great. But, do make sure that there is not much layering or definition to your upper body because it needs none. V-neck lines work well and create an illusion of narrow shoulders, so this should be your go-to neckline.

What Not To Wear When You Have An Inverted Triangle Body Shape?

Let all the patterns, ruffles, layers, etc., be part of the bottom part of your body, and the upper body be minimalistic. As long as you remember this, you will do more than good.
