In a recent post I talked about how I plan to buy less trend driven, fast fashion pieces and instead opt for timeless stylish pieces that I’ll wear season after season. You can read that post here!
I decided to share with you guys my plans for said capsule wardrobe. I’ve put quite a lot of thought into this. I’ve written lists of key staples for each season and organised them in order of which ones I want most. I’m sure that this list would look differently for everyone, but I’ve drawn on my love of color, slight androgyny and simplicity to figure out what I really want.
- A brightly colored cocoon coat
- A good quality camel trench coat
- A lightweight denim jacket
- A really nice fitted long-line blazer in check
- Two or three pairs of Birkenstock sandals
- A pair of boyfriend/mom style white jeans
- Some Adidas/Nike sliders
- A borg lined denim jacket
- A good waterproof puffa coat
- A long black belted wool coat
- A pair of real suede block heel ankle boots in black and in tan
- Some really warm and cosy, brightly colored, high-quality wool scarves
- Some Adidas/Nike trainers
That’s pretty much all of the stuff I want to focus on stocking my wardrobe with. They’re all pieces that I think I’ll get the most value from and the ones I want to invest in. Of course I’ll always love wearing fashion-forward, on-trend pieces. I love to make a statement and pushing boundaries by wearing clothes that fat girls typically shy away from. That’s a really important element of my own personal style that I’d never want to lose. But I want those fashion-forward, on-trend pieces to comprise a minority of my clothes, not the majority. By styling them with the classic pieces which will make up my capsule wardrobe, I can ensure that I’m true to my own style while using my money in a way that makes sense.
Here are some great images of some of my favorite fashion bloggers wearing examples of the pieces on my list!
