Ever bought a fancy top but ended up wearing that comfortable old favorite? We’ve all encountered wardrobe greed, right? We’ve been accustomed to wanting the celeb closet-room, right? And even though those are pretty cool, you guys can be really happy with a lot less. Here is how.

Let us introduce you to the term- Capsule Wardrobe. Once you adapt to this concept, there is no looking back!

What is Capsule Wardrobe?

I came across this concept when I was recently cleaning my wardrobe. Capsule Wardrobe is a compilation of a few indispensable items of clothing that don't go out of fashion, such as skirts, pants, and jackets, and can then be augmented with seasonal items.

On acclimatizing the concept, you have something awesome to throw on, be it Sunday brunch or a client meeting because every single item dangling in your closet is something that you would love to wear at any moment!

How To Build A Capsule Wardrobe From Scratch

Assume capsule wardrobe as the building blocks of your closet that establish the foundation of your personal style. Begin by investing in timeless, classic pieces that set your prevailing fashion mood—then add trends, prints, color, and designs for each season.

Here is how to build a capsule wardrobe from scratch. Here are 15 capsule wardrobe essentials you must have.

A Chambray Shirt

Pair it with erratic prints. Unbutton it and wear it as a lightweight layer for all seasons.

The Promiscuous - Little Black Dress

A timeless classic. Familiar with "Black makes me look thin and green makes you look fat" You guys have to agree with Poo from K3G. Black is the one color that can be worn anywhere, and it can be dressed up or down depending on the event. Just know the perfect dress silhouette for your shape and Voila!

White Basic T-shirt

On a day when you are struggling with what to wear, a white tee can come to your rescue. Pair it up with your favorite jeans and a blazer on casual Friday, or roll it with shorts or a skirt for the fun weekend. Also, layer them under those itchy sweaters in winters.

Skinny Jeans- Medium Wash

Sober washed denim goes with everything, from your blackest top to your whitest t-shirt.

A Versatile Silk Blouse

A luxe must have for your wardrobe is a swanky silk blouse. Opt for colors like black, navy or rose. Match them with jeans or trousers for a look that’s always dapper & groomed 

Tote Bag

A cutesy carry-all in a fall hue to store your necessities is the key for active women on the go.

Formal Black Trousers for Women

With a heavy heart, you must admit that wearing jeans every day can be difficult.

Need to dress up? Have a pair of black trousers handy and throw with black pumps or with any footwear of your choice.

Striped Top

Striped tops and t-shirts are a must-have. No matter what your size is, as long as it fits you perfectly and you are good to go. Want to make a fashion statement, pair it up with a floral skirt. As for the basic, top it up with your favorite pair of jeans.

Black Blazer

If you are new to the marvelous world of blazers, this is the place to start. A simplistic, well-cut black blazer is possibly the most adaptable piece of clothing you can have!

Be it for work and over a dress, or over a tee for that edgy and chic look black blazer that has some shaping through the back to define your waist will be a great addition.

Boyfriend Jeans

It is much more comfortable than a skinny jean but just as chic. Known for its relaxed and loose fit it is preferred by many fashion icons, the boyfriend jean is the embodiment of smooth chic dressing with a touch of young charm.

Chunky Knit Sweater

Staying snug is the key when the temp drops. Find one (or as many) super soft chunky knit sweaters to snuggle you through the winters.

Ankle Booties

These are available in many designs and there is a pair for any style of outfit. Experiment with super-hot trends like kitten heel ankle boots or stick with the classics with a flat pair of Chelsea boots. Your wardrobe will thank you!


Flats are your friend in need. For the days when you’re not feeling the need for extra height, interchange your shoes for a pair of flats. Choose from menswear-inspired loafers to ultra-girly flats, you’ve got a pair for an everyday look.

White Sneakers

White sneakers trend is here to stay. To give an edge to any outfit wear these trendy white sneakers and you will turn heads around.
