I've been scouting the stores for over a month now in the search of capsule pieces and found the perfect mix of tailored pieces have been my ultimate saviour, paired with delicate and detailed knits (who else is seriously over the moon about knitwear season's return?). You've probably already spotted that the mix in question is completely monochrome which you may be thinking is completely unlike me, but apparently my heart can go out to those monochrome lovers out there - and let's face it, what better way to pull together a capsule wardrobe than the muted way? Swapping and choosing is easier in monochrome, so when the rest of your wardrobe lets you down - it's a guarantee your capsule one will always be there for you. Take this Sleeveless Ribbed Top by Maison Margiela for example (I know, that's the dream), paired with the coolest pair of day-to-day culottes for the office and switched for a delicate, lace skirt for post-work drinks - you have the most perfect top for everything, everyday.
Spending too much money isn't necessary when picking up staples, just look for pieces you know you'll wear over and over for more than one occasion and voila - your go-to rail is complete!
