A good capsule wardrobe should make choosing what to wear look and feel effortless. But knowing where to start is often the most challenging part. A considered approach to dressing, a capsule wardrobe holds between 10 and 20 interchangeable items with infinite styling opportunities. 

Each essential should be easy to dress up or down and wear day and night, from a basic t-shirt and throw-on jeans to the classic trench coat that never lets you down. Neutral colours are the easiest to style, but it doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your wardrobe (we’re looking forward to bringing a pop of colour into our knitwear). 

Whether you’re juggling family life or anticipating the arrival of your first child, time is of the essence, so we’ve pulled together our top picks – without a single maternity item in sight. 

From the hero shirts we turn to every season to trophy tote bags that will seamlessly carry you from work to play dates, here’s everything you need to build a capsule collection that will stand the test of time.
