Capsule Wardrobe Accessories

by Glamorouslady_x

When you build your capsule wardrobe, you cannot forget the accessories -they play a major part. You can use a small collection of accessories to get the most out of your capsule wardrobe. That’s why it’s important to choose a small selection of the right pieces.

When I was thinking about my accessories collection I was aiming for classic and timeless styles. I was looking for pieces that will work in my wardrobe for years without going out of style or looking dated. I have started building my capsule wardrobe accessories with the most used and important piece- the black bag. A black bag goes with everything, with any colour, any pattern. It is my most used accessory on a daily basis. I use it both day and night.

It is equally important to invest in a neutral coloured bag to complement the lighter coloured outfits. Just like the black bag this is my most used bag both for day and evening time.

By investing in a few key items in neutral colours you will have a good foundation of basics, which is a great way to get the most of your wardrobe.

I also think it’s very important to get a belt to add to your wardrobe. A belt can change an outfit instantly and give a nice silhouette. I have opted for reversible belt to get the most out of it. The belt above has a neutral colour on one side and a black colour on the other with a gold hardware buckle.

I’ve been buying key wardrobe staples gradually, over a period of time. Once I’ve had my basic two handbags and the belt, I thought carefully about what’s the next item that I can add to my wardrobe. I have purchased a nude pair of pumps with a medium heel. Once again these are very classic and versatile shoes that go with every outfit and can be worn both in the daytime and evening time.

I have also contemplated for a long time about purchasing a more casual footwear. I have opted for a basic black loafer. Since purchasing these I have worn them casually with jeans as well as with dresses. I’m so pleased that I have made the decision to purchase the open back loafer which allows me to wear them in the summer time as well as winter.

Of course building a capsule wardrobe accessories takes time and a lot of thought so these are my first few basic items. I will gradually add more, one accessory at a time.

I’m attaching a link to a website where you can find a lot of good quality investment accessories:

    Good Morning Glamorous Lady... 🙂

    I have never heard of a "Capsule Wardrobe". Can you tell me what it is, please..? I love the accessories you chose in this article and they all make sense...neutrals + black = goes with just about everything.

    Have a great morning!!

    Hi, thank you. A capsule wardrobe is a limited collection of classic pieces of clothing that you can mix and match. They usually complement each other and made of neutral colours. A capsule wardrobe allows you to create a variety of different outfits with a small selection of classic style clothes, that would not go out of fashion. Ultimately it saves you money, closet space and time as you never have to stress about what to wear. And of course it’s much better for the environment, by investing in classic, good quality items and not buying lots of disposable fast fashion.
