BUILD A CAPSULE WARDROBE

Paragraph

Author: Author Photographer: Photographer

Pieces that pair with everything, that you can wear to anything? It may sound too good to be true, but that is the magic of a capsule wardrobe. Allow us to introduce you to the sartorial saviours who are bound to be your new best friend.

First things first: what (actually) is a capsule wardrobe? In short, it’s a compact closet. Think curated clothes that work together and co-ordinate to make fire fits.

Never ones to air on the safe side, at FLANNELS, we’re taking capsule dressing to the next level. Whilst it may be a truth universally acknowledged that basics are the key to any good wardrobe, in 2023, there’s no reason your basics should be boring. Think short coats in fun fabrics. Printed trousers that can instantly lift an otherwise neutral look. Sneakers with a twist.

This is how to build a capsule wardrobe comprised of statement-making staples that will guarantee that you’re always the best dressed in the room. You’re welcome.

1. THE SHORT COAT

For 2023, we’re keeping our outerwear cut short. Think coats that sit neatly at the waist and pair with everything in your wardrobe – from tailored trousers to sporty joggers. Into it? We thought so. The key picks come by way of Jacquemus, Bottega Veneta and Prada: think shearling, iridescent puffers and signature black nylon.

2. THE ELEVATED SHIRT

We don’t need to tell you that you need a good button down in your wardrobe. We do need to tell you that in 2023 it’s time to take that button down to the next level. Because yes, your staple pieces can – and should – be statement makers. Top of our list? Bottega’s Nylon Shirt recently worn by Stormzy in the Mel Made Me Do It video, Givenchy’s solid black Address Shirt and Gucci’s monogram iteration.

3. THE STATEMENT TROUSER

Black leather, statement florals and jalapeño green: statement-making trousers are going to be at the core of your wardrobe this year so it’s time to get ahead of the game. From Amiri to Jacquemus, this selection of trousers is guaranteed to take your outfit to the next level, even if up top you’re keeping things simple.

4. THE SNEAKERS WITH A TWIST

Nothing says new year like a fresh pair of kicks – and this selection of sneakers will see you through the next year, and beyond. From Jil Sander’s cult gum-soled high tops to Amiri’s skeleton runners and Prada’s Downtown Trainers, these are the trainers to add to your rotation. Wear Amiri’s with laid back sweats, pair Prada’s with easy denim and style Jil Sander’s with baggy suit trousers.
