The building blocks of a capsule wardrobe are formed from an elite selection of investment pieces that will transcend seasons. These classic garments can be styled together for a sleek and refined look or can be worn with trend-led pieces. Famed for its contemporary ready-to-wear collections that fuse casual wear with more tailored pieces, Joseph is the first port of call for investment garments. Follow our guide below for our top tips on how to curate your wardrobe essentials.

Collect simple versatile garments

Make a list of everyday basics that are necessary in your wardrobe: the black trousers, the white shirt, the grey jumper, the black overcoat. Think about items that you can layer and wear with your favourite statement pieces. True investment pieces should be plain, with little or no embellishments and should be crafted from the finest natural materials to ensure longevity.

Stick to a monochromatic colour palette

Black, white, grey, cream and navy will form the basis of a capsule wardrobe. These subdued hues can be worn together or paired with brighter colours or bold prints to create a vast array of different looks. When choosing your investment pieces, think about the occasions that you will be wearing them for and what you are likely to be wearing them with. A black roll neck jumper, classically tailored black blazer or a cream silk tank top will fit effortlessly into your wardrobe.

Plan ahead

When and where are you likely to be wearing your investment garments? If you work in an office with a strict formal dress code a smart ,strong>black dress will take you from day to night with a simple change of accessories. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, an oversized cream jumper will prove useful and can be worn in many different ways. If you regularly wear leggings, invest in a high-quality versatile leather pair.
