All my love and thanks for being here,


Spring Wardrobe Essentials 2023

To build your own capsule wardrobe successfully I believe it is all in the planning. I would also argue there are some closet staples that come in handy no matter one’s individual style. So in this article consider me your personal stylist for spring 2023!

All Purpose Knitwear

Having all-purpose knitwear in your wardrobe is a great essential for any spring wardrobe. As the weather starts to warm up, it’s important to have pieces that can easily transition from cool mornings to warm afternoons and chilly evenings. Knitwear is the perfect solution as it’s versatile, comfortable, and stylish. Whether you opt for a lightweight cardigan, a cozy sweater, or a trendy knit top, you can easily layer and mix and match these pieces to create different outfits for any occasion. Not only does knitwear add texture and depth to your look, but it’s also great for adding a pop of color or pattern to your outfit. Plus, with so many different styles and materials to choose from, you can easily find a piece that fits your personal style and comfort level. I can’t forget to mention, even though minimalism and neutrals are back in trend, spring usually sprouts new fun colours to add to your closet. Knitwear is an easy way to add colour to your outfit with minimal effort. So, if you’re looking to build a functional and fashionable spring wardrobe, be sure to include all-purpose knitwear as a staple item!

Trousers and Cargo Pants

A relaxed fit trouser is a must-have item in any wardrobe, as it has the power to make almost any outfit look effortlessly chic. Whether you’re dressing up or keeping it casual, trousers add a touch of sophistication to your look (we’re going to cover pairing sneakers in a moment’s time as well!). It’s the perfect balance of comfort and style, giving you the freedom to move while still looking polished. For the upcoming spring 2023 season, we’re seeing a trend towards elevated everyday basics, including trousers, black pants, and cargo pants on our bottom halves. These timeless staples are being reinvented with modern cuts, unique fabrics, and unexpected details to create fresh and exciting looks. By incorporating a trouser into your wardrobe, you can stay on-trend while maintaining comfort and versatility. I would most certainly recommend choosing neutral colors when selecting a piece like this for your capsule collection. A relaxed fit trouser makes any outfit transition from day to night with minimal effort.

The White Poplin Shirt, White Tee and White Tank

Owning a white top is a great wardrobe essential for transitioning into spring and if you do further research I’m sure you’ll find it in many capsule wardrobes. Whether it’s a crisp white poplin shirt, a simple white t-shirt, or a ribbed tank top, this versatile piece can be styled in countless ways to suit your personal style and the changing weather. A white top is a great foundation piece for any outfit and can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. It pairs perfectly with a denim jacket or blazer for a more polished look, or can be worn with shorts and sandals for a more casual vibe. The neutral colour makes it easy to mix and match with other pieces in your wardrobe, making it a great investment piece and one of the most versatile pieces. Plus, in the spring, white is the perfect color to brighten up your outfits and give them a fresh, clean look. Another up side to wearing outfits that include a white top is there is no real way of styling it wrong. So, whether you prefer a more structured top or a more relaxed one, owning a white top is the ideal item for transitioning your wardrobe into spring.

A classic sneaker is a delightful and comfortable addition to any spring wardrobe, and can even add an unexpected twist to many outfits. Trainers have come a long way from their sporty origins, and are now a stylish and versatile shoe that can be dressed up or down. (Hint: I love styling a white pair of sneakers with the next wardrobe piece). The beauty of sneakers is that they come in a range of price points, so you can find a great pair that fits your budget. Whether you prefer a white leather sneaker or a colorful canvas option, there’s a perfect pair out there for everyone. And once you find your favorite pair, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them. Sneakers are the ultimate combination of comfort and style, and can be worn with anything from dresses and skirts to jeans and shorts. So, if you’re looking to add a fun and unexpected twist to your spring outfits, be sure to consider a sneaker as your go-to shoe or at least a piece to add to your wardrobe staples! Extra Tip: If you are shopping for sneakers and you truly don’t know where to start I can’t recommend just purchasing a plain pair of white sneakers enough. White trainers are just one of those key pieces that will never go out of fashion.

The Slip Dress or Maxi Skirt

In my opinion, a spring capsule wardrobe is not complete without one of the following: a slip dress or a maxi skirt. Both of these pieces are versatile and timeless, and can be styled in a variety of ways to create different looks. For a new wardrobe, I recommend starting with neutral prints or solid colors, which can be easily mixed and matched with other pieces. Maxi dresses can be dressed up with heels and statement jewelry for a special occasion, or dressed down with sneakers and a denim jacket for a more casual look. We’ll talk about those classic lightweight jackets for spring in a moment’s time! Meanwhile, a maxi skirt is perfect for adding a touch of elegance to your outfit, whether you opt for a flowy bohemian look or a sleek, form-fitting silhouette. Don’t be afraid to add a pop of color to your spring wardrobe, too! Bright colors like yellow, pink, and green can instantly brighten up your look and add a playful touch. Overall, a long line silky dress or a maxi skirt is a must-have for any spring capsule wardrobe, offering versatility, comfort, and style in one go-to piece.

Lightweight Jacket

Denim Jacket, Leather Jacket, Etc.

As the seasons change, so does the outerwear, and if you’re looking to add some layers, function, and texture to your spring outfit, a lightweight jacket is the perfect piece to pull to the front of your closet. A jacket is a great idea for adding an extra layer of warmth during the transitional months of spring, and can also complete an outfit by adding a touch of style and personality. Lightweight jackets come in a variety of styles and materials, so there is something to satisfy anyone’s personal style. You can find them in classic styles like leather, denim, and khaki, or opt for something more unique like a printed bomber or a flowy duster. Cropped jackets are also back in style, so it’s time to pull those to the front of your wardrobe again. A lightweight jacket is a great addition to any capsule collection, as it can be easily paired with other items in your wardrobe to create different outfits. Whether you’re heading to the office or running errands on the weekend, a lightweight jacket is my favorite part of heading into the shoulder seasons.

Trench Coats

A trench coat is a timeless wardrobe staple for the spring season, and for good reason. This classic piece of outerwear has been a fashion icon for decades, and its versatility and elegance have made it a favorite among designers and fashion enthusiasts around the world. One of the great things about the trench coat is that it can be tweaked to suit different tastes, while still maintaining its overall style integrity. Designers have experimented with different colors, fabrics, and details, while still retaining the basic silhouette that makes the trench coat so iconic. From traditional khaki to bold colors and prints, there is a trench coat for every style preference. The trench is perfect for those unpredictable spring days, when the weather can be sunny one moment and rainy the next. Its lightweight yet durable fabric and versatile style make it the perfect addition to any wardrobe. Whether you prefer a classic style or a modern twist, a trench coat is a timeless investment piece that will never go out of style.

Jeans for Every Capsule Collection

Finding the perfect pair of jeans can be a challenge, but when you make the effort to find your favourite pair, it can be incredibly rewarding. This year, trend reports have been forecasting a resurgence of denim, with a focus on relaxed fit jeans and specifically the return of denim on denim outfits. Wide leg jeans have also been making a comeback, offering a comfortable and stylish alternative to the traditional skinny jean. The beauty of denim is its versatility, making it a go-to choice for any season or occasion. With a little effort, you can find a great pair of jeans that can be dressed up or down, and paired with virtually any outfit. I have always been a sucker for the outfit formula of a v-neck and simple denim. The key to wearing denim is to find the perfect fit, and this often requires trying on multiple styles and brands to find the right one. With the right pair of jeans, you can build an entire collection of outfits that will last you for years to come. So, don’t be afraid to invest in a great pair of jeans or to take the time to squeeze in and out of them in an awkwardly cramped changeroom, as they are often a hero piece in any capsule wardrobe.

The Stripped Shirt (Or Breton Stripe)

The striped shirt, also known as the Breton stripe, has a rich history dating back to the 19th century. Originally worn by sailors in the French navy, the distinctive pattern of narrow stripes in blue and white was designed to help spot sailors who had fallen overboard. The Breton stripe shirt became popular with artists and intellectuals in the early 20th century, including Pablo Picasso and Coco Chanel, who incorporated the pattern into their designs. Today, the Breton stripe remains a timeless classic that always pops up for spring. The light and airy design is perfect for the warmer months, and the stripes add a playful touch to any outfit. I personally love a stripped jumper because you can wear it in so many ways and combine neutral colors that suit your own personal capsule wardrobe.

Spring Accessories That Never Miss

Adding accessories is a great way to elevate your spring outfits and bring your own personal style to the forefront. A traditional timepiece, like a classic watch, can add sophistication and style to any outfit. A carryall tote is not only functional but can also be a statement piece, adding a pop of color or texture to your look. A silk scarf is a versatile accessory that can be worn in many different ways – tied around the neck, draped over the shoulders, or even used as a hair accessory. A goes-with-everything belt is a must-have accessory that can instantly pull an outfit together and define your silhouette. Lastly, a minimalist pair of earrings can add just the right amount of sparkle and shine without overpowering your look. With spring bringing back colour and warmth, it’s the perfect time to experiment with accessories and have fun adding your own unique touch to your outfits. I like to think of my accessories as their own micro capsule wardrobe within my wardrobe staples.
