Altering The Future* Cohesive Staples from Winter to Spring

A soft jumper-dress that would look amazing with an oversized coat during the colder months gets a spring make-over with bare legs, minimal accessories and a vegan perfecto.

 

A pair of simple pumps instead of boots. Classic, understated and can easily take you from day to night.

The key is not to overthink your outfits. Having a year-round capsule wardrobe instead of a seasonal one allows me to invest in better pieces that I can effortlessly take from winter to summer.

Even though I usually go for oversized silhouettes, I’m a firm believer that you can get away with a skinny dress as long as you keep it balanced. This one by Tiger of Sweden features a comfy high neck and by keeping the colours muted and throwing on a ย  -vegan- leather jacket, ย the outfit is more sophisticated than sexy.

Do you rely on a year-round capsule wardrobe? I’d love to hear from you! Let’s keep in touch!

    Ummmmmmmmmm, I LOVE that your dress has a pocket in it. My favorite summer dress has a pocket in it and when anyone compliments me on it, it’s the first thing I say right back to them. “THANKS! It has POCKETS!”

    I love the dress! I haven’t been body positive to myself lately so I haven’t been wearing any tight fitting clothing.

    You look spectacular in that outfit. And I agree that sometimes we overthink things when we need to keep things simple.

    I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe, although I find it tricky to do if you live in a place where the weather is drastically different in the summer and the winter. Do you have any tips for this?

      Yes! I’m currently based in greece where the summers are very hot and the winters harsh. For me layering is key! Thank you for stopping by!

    The soft-jumper cream dress is already gorgeous alone. I might add pearls and chignon hairdo for a more lady-like look ๐Ÿ™‚
