There's no disputing that a capsule wardrobe is the secret to effortless style, so it pays to invest in great quality basics. From skinny jeans to tapered blazers, little makes getting ready in the morning easier than having a selection of go-tos that work together. But what if you want to achieve the high-end look without splashing too much cash?
The Outnet is a must-know for those looking to build a capsule closet for less. The site is filled with hidden treasures, from discounted Joseph to cut-price Marant, so when it comes to building your curated selection of high-end basics, it should be the first destination on your list. Here are the timeless, everyday pieces to snap up for less…
The Leather Jacket
No wardrobe is complete without a butter soft leather jacket. Keep things edgy in black with metal hardware or opt for a soft pastel hue for a feminine twist, teaming with everything from slip dresses to denim for a versatile look for every occasion.
The Classic Jean
Whether it’s skinny or boyfriend, from the quality to the flattering cut, it’s worth spending a little more for long lasting denim. And with J Brand, Frame and Current/Elliot all in The Outnet’s selection, you’re sure to find your ideal style. Team with everything from Stan Smiths to heels for quick transitional style.
A failsafe night-time look, a LBD doesn’t have to be boring. Find asymmetric designs from Elizabeth & James and ruffled crepe pieces from Tibi; we particularly love Self-Portrait’s dramatic, sheer panelled, strappy number. Team with statement earrings and a pop of colour for a pulled together evening edit.
The Refined Blazer
From desk to dinner, you can’t go wrong with a tailored blazer. We love Joseph and Sandro for classic, work-ready pieces, stick to a long line cut and slightly structured shoulders for a modern take. Go classic with a grey, textured blazer, or opt for white for a spring-ready twist.
The Tailored Trouser
Whether you team them with a chunky knit and sneakers à la Victoria Beckham or add heels and a blazer for a sleek work look, a tapered pair of trousers will polish any edit. Stick to wool in winter and a crepe design for spring, and flash a bit of ankle for a fresh finish.
The White Shirt
From sequin-embellished collars to ruffle-lined cut-out shoulders, there are myriad ways to wear the white shirt. It’s worth investing in a classic button down, but putting an interesting spin on your capsule look has never been easier than with this season’s selection of Maje, Pucci and Iris & Ink designs. Wear with tapered trousers and a blazer or leather jacket for day-to-night style.
