Five capsule wardrobe items for spring-summer 2019

As we float out of one season and into the next, there are a handful of wardrobe staples that make the grade time and time again – the basics you can count on that will last a lifetime. Streamlining your wardrobe makes everyday dressing so much easier. Whatever occasion you’re dressing up for, feel free to mix and match with whatever you feel fits.

These five wardrobe staples should put an end to those dreaded five little words no one wants to hear: “I have nothing to wear”.

  1. White Jeans

You simply cannot go wrong with white jeans, so don’t stop at one pair. Grab yourself a wide-leg, high-waisted pair to couple with a combat boot, a capri cut to match with those cute strappy sandals, and don’t forget the boyfriend style for those lazy, hot days where you want to kick back in a pair of espadrille flats.

2. Blazer

There is nothing more versatile on Earth. Style it with a plain white tee, washed out jeans, midi-skirt or even a slip-dress. Your wardrobe is simply not complete without one. Did we say one? Forget one; with all those styles and colours on offer, you really need at least three taking up space in your closet.

3. Maxi Dresses

Nothing signals the start of summer like maxi dresses. Select a versatile print and style you can match with strappy sandals or chunky combat boots. There are so many styles to choose from, and sites such as www.axparis.com/collections/maxi-dresses leave you spoilt for choice.

4. Crop top / Bra-let

The best day-to-night option right now is the crop top or bra-let. Pop a smart vest over it as night falls or a jean jacket for those chilly days out. Dress it up with a midi skirt or a pair of high-waisted, wide-leg Levis. Why not turn last season’s sweaters into this season’s crop tops? Here’s how you can do it in 90 seconds!

5. Strappy Sandals

Opt for a comfortable low heel as there’s nothing worse than struggling in high heels with the sun beating down on your back. As we float out of one season and into the next, there are a handful of wardrobe staples that make the grade time and time again – the basics you can count on that will last a lifetime. Streamlining your wardrobe makes everyday dressing so much easier. Whatever occasion you’re dressing up for, feel free to mix and match with whatever you feel fits. Strappy sandals look hot with any outfit choice, and with a variety of styles and colours available, you don’t need to reach for anything else. Accessorise with an oversized tote bag and a pair of small round shades.
