If you're anything like me, then I know when you're out shopping and you see a super fun and trendy top that you are drawn to, you think to yourself that you have to have it! I won’t lie— having super loud and fun tops to style with can be so fun! But basic essential pieces that will last forever are must haves for your closet! The idea of a capsule wardrobe came from being able to build a wardrobe with great basics; it makes dressing day-to-day so much easier! Today I wanted to talk to you guys about a few pieces that I believe are essentials that every woman needs in their closet in order to make the perfect capsule wardrobe.
The first thing I believe that is super important for every woman's wardrobe is the perfect pair of denim jeans! Sweats are the best I will agree. But denim is forever! The new classic silhouette is relaxed jeans or easy jeans, that are high waisted and straight legged. This might not be your favorite look, and if you are lost and don't know what jeans are going to be the most flattering for your body, Check out our instagram @halftee and take our body type quiz to help you find your body type and the perfect jeans for you. Here are a few examples of the high waisted straight leg jeans that go well with a pair of heels or even sneakers.
The second thing I think is essential to your new Capsule Wardrobe is the perfect basic white top—whether that is a white t-shirt, or a white tank that you seem to want to wear everyday because you just love the cut or fit of it! Having a few white shirts and black tops is essential for a capsule wardrobe.
The Third thing that is essential for your capsule wardrobe is the perfect pair of sneakers or shoes that can go with anything! Having a pair of go-to shoes makes day-to-day dressing so much easier! A pair of shoes can completely change your outfit! They can dress it up, or dress it down, depending on what type of shoes you lean towards most. For some, a black heel might be a staple. For others, a pair of white sneakers might be a staple. Whether you like to dress up more, or like to keep it more casual, find your go-to pair of shoes, and add a pair to your closet!
The fourth thing is a day-to-night dress. What I mean by this is a dress that you can wear all day to work, or to run some errands, that will transition seamlessly to a night out! For a day-to-night dress, you are looking for a dress that is versatile! A length that I believe best fits this category is a midi length dress. A midi length dress can be dressed up or down, which makes it very versatile. You can dress it up just by simply adding some jewelry and a pair of heels, and voila—you're ready for a night out! To dress it down, try adding some sneakers, and pulling up your hair, and you're ready for the day ahead.
The fifth and final thing that I believe is essential for every woman's closet is a Halftee! Halftees are the perfect layering piece that can keep your wardrobe season appropriate all year long! Halftees help women layer without all the bulk and heat! There are so many different styles and colors to choose from! But I believe that every woman needs to have a Halftee in their closet. Halftees make it easier to shop for what you really want. With a Halftee, you can add that extra layer to cover your bra straps, as well as give a more modest look without having to wear a full layer. So convenient!
