5 High Street Capsule Wardrobe Looks

When it comes to autumn/winter dressing, we want clean, comfortable separates that work cohesively together. John Lewis and Partners, the new brand from the high street behemoth, is delivering on just that: with a focus on wearable, polished pieces, the collection features crisp shirting, smart Crombie coats, checked tailoring and great leather, all in a mix-and-match neutral colour palette.

We’ve selected our hero products from the collection to show you just how well everything works together. Whether you’re dressing up knitwear or making white shirts work off-duty, here’s all the proof you need that these great, everyday separates will form the foundation for your capsule wardrobe this season…

Layering all your basics together is an easy hack for making your capsule wardrobe look cool. Each piece in this look works for a variety of different occasions but paired together with smart joggers and trainers, it becomes a polished weekend edit – just sub in heels to elevate.
Buying one bold piece that works with your simpler separates will make your wardrobe work harder. Team this cobalt blue midi with killer black boots and a biker for a winter day-to-night look.
A checked double-breasted blazer is a capsule essential, ideal for the office and off-duty alike. Pair with a navy cashmere polo neck, smart navy trousers and trainers; all basics that when layered together instantly have fresh, cool appeal.
Here’s that blue skirt again, proving the versatility of one token colour-pop piece. Add smart ankle boots and this androgynous navy coat for a fuss-free outfit that still has impact.
Remember that crisp white shirt? Give it a different spin by tucking it into a leather skirt – ideal for big days at the office. A grey knit softens the look, while that black Crombie coat proves its worth again by playing right into the power dressing edit.
