I’ve had a couple of Magpie Mail inquiries asking for thoughts on a spring capsule wardrobe. To be perfectly honest, I’ve never done a “capsule” wardrobe though I admire those with the restraint to do so. I tend to invest in good basics (I invest specifically in jeans, shoes, cashmere, and feminine dresses) that I wear for seasons and seasons, and then pepper in trendier finds at lower price points. I would be nowhere without J. Brand white jeans, for example, which I wear year-round. Below, going to share some basics worth investing in (items I would buy and wear for years on end — note that some of these are reasonably priced at around $100 but that I will 100% wear for many years to cone) and then share some trendier pieces to mix in:
Spring Wardrobe Investments.
TRENCH (BURBERRY IS LUSTWORTHY BUT I THINK I WILL GO WITH THIS ONE FOR NOW!!!)
CLASSIC SHIRTDRESS (LOVE THIS ONE IN THE WHITE WITH THE COLORFUL TRIM)
Spring Wardrobe Steals + Trends.
FLORAL DROPS ($66!)
AGOLDE JEANS (SEEN ABOVE)
PLEATED WAIST BELTED PANTS (IN PINK OR IVORY)
ORGANZA BLOUSE ($35 AND SEEN ABOVE)
P.S. Party girl.
P.P.P.S. Exercises in tedium.
