By Lindsay Young

Have you ever gone into your closet and immediately felt overwhelmed and stressed about what to wear, and having little or no time to plan your outfits? That is where the “capsule wardrobe” comes in to save the day. These essential classic wardrobe fail-safe provides the unshakable foundations of any minimalist’s look- and will make your life a whole lot easier! We have compiled a checklist to help build your capsule wardrobe and give you the option to create multiple chic looks all year long.

The Blazer

The blazer's transition from corporate classic to closet essential. Look for chic oversized designs or light materials for reinvented versions of this timeless piece. Pair with shorts and a classic tee for a truly modern city girl look.

High-waisted Jeans

After what seems like a lifetime, skinny jeans have officially lost their stranglehold on your closet. Consider high-rise, straight-leg jeans your new default. Cool and universally flattering, these retro-inspired jeans are the minimalist’s new go to. Pair with a romantic top and statement platform to make it chic. Minimal effort, maximum impact? It’s all down to a good pair of denim.

Technically, the joggers’ fashion trend is nothing more than spruced-up sweatpants, but they are usually more fitted and taper towards the ankles. They can be found in the traditional heavy knit, but they also come in a variety of other materials, from linen to leather. Keep it simple and pair with a comfy bodysuit and trainers.

White T-shirt

For what seems like forever, the basic plain white tee has been the foundation to an elevated yet laid-back look. Embrace the simplicity by wearing your white T-shirt with a bold skirt and an eye-catching bag.

Collared Shirt

Of course this is an ideal office shirt, but there are thousands of casual combinations you can try with your everyday essentials. Accessories are key to amp up the volume on this classic blouse, so choose some statement jewelry pieces or a heel with a pop of color to showcase this minimalist staple.
