In the last few years, the “less is more” adage has never felt more relevant, especially when it comes to leaning out our closets à la Marie Kondo. One approach that’s become increasingly popular amongst the fashion-forward crowd is building out a capsule wardrobe. A capsule wardrobe is a minimalist way to approach your closet by simply relying on a handful of quality pieces, which can easily be mixed and matched with each other. Those in favour of this concept love it because it takes the guesswork out of getting dressed everyday, encourages more conscious shopping, and allows you to rewear the pieces you own. Not sure where to start? We’ve selected the top five pieces to add to your capsule wardrobe this season.
