J.Crew knit top / Cotton cardigan / ELEVEN PARIS printed shirt, $51 / MICHAEL Michael Kors sequin shirt, $245 / French Connection formal shirt, $46 / Velvet striped t shirt / Nudie Jeans Co. slim jeans, $115 / Enza Costa metallic pleated skirt, $430 / Boot cut jeans, $105 / Witchery , $52 / Mango zip pants, $32 / ALDO high heels / Madden Girl booties / Giuseppe Zanotti wide sandals / Red Herring suede wedge pumps, $28 / Carolina Bucci , $14,300 / Square ring / Noa Noa noa, $51 / BonBon Boutique white pearl earrings, $46 / Faliero Sarti scarve / Agent Ninetynine straw fedora hat, $26 / Skull scarve / Karen Walker

Rule 1 -Try to decide on a limited colour pallette.  It must contain at least 2 neutrals (black, white, grey, beige, navy) and perhaps 3 other colours.  In the image above the neutrals are black, white and tan (including navy and denim) with colours of melon, turquoise and gold.

Rule 2 – You must have a range of basics including at least 2 types of jeans (boyfriend, wide leg, skinny, bootleg) and some plain tee shirts or singlets in greys or whites.  Also think about the neutral tan wedge shoe – there’s not much this baby won’t go with!
Rule 3 – Don’t forget accessories!  This are an integral part of your wardrobe and should include a range of summer and winter scarves, two or three different styles/colours of sunglasses, a range of jewellery in both neutral (silver and gold counts as neutral) and your chosen colours.
Rule 4 – Your winter and summer capsule wardrobes will be different.  The winter one should contain at least 2 pairs of boots and a range of jackets/coats but more on that when it starts to get cold here in Melbourne!

  1. I’ve just decided to begin a capsule wardrobe. Thanks for your tips! They’ve really helped me to understand where to start!

    • Glad to be of help Jo! Capsule wardrobes often vary from person to person, I find it helps to start building from the item you wear the most. For some people that’s jeans, others it’s a dress. Happy to email advice if you need it, happy 13! caroline
