For any fashion forward individual, a classic timeless piece is incredibly valuable to the wardrobe. Be it a skirt or a pair of your favourite heels, the road to building a capsule wardrobe starts with picking out these specific pieces.
Here are some of our tips and picks to build your wardrobe.
1. Consider your needs
Think about what you'll be using the pieces for. Are you looking for staples to complement your colour pallete or for those fun night outs? Heels for a special occasion or for a specific weather?
When you consider your specific usage for the pieces, your pickings will narrow down, making the process much much easier.
2. Pay attention to fit
It's important to find shoes and clothes that fit well, or if you’re a fan of wide silhouettes, go for the ones that have a touch of versatility to it. Do try on several sizes and widths to find the best fit.
Remember to also consider the shape of your foot when shopping for shoes. If you have wide feet, look for brands that offer wide width options.
Quality clothes and shoes are always worth the extra investment in. A good pair of shoes with sturdy soles and good arch support can go a long way. Don't be afraid to try something new, it can also be fun to experiment with different styles and trends.
Take a chance on a piece that truly catches your eye, even if they're outside of your comfort zone. You never know, you may end up discovering a new favorite style or look!
