Welcome to my Capsule Wardrobe Archives
Here I will be sharing with you my capsule wardrobe pieces and a few words about the reasons why I carefully chose each and every item.
Today it’s all about the perfect grey chunky jumper.
Choosing Knitwear for your capsule wardrobe is one of the most important steps of the proccess. They are rather expensive and you have to make sure you won’t regret investing in them. They have to be versatile and in line with the rest of your wardrobe and they absolutely have to be of the finest quality you can afford. Buying second hand is always a good idea as long as you shop from a trusted platform / seller. I’ve talked about where to buy and sell pre-loved high-end fashion here.
The shape and fit of your jumpers is something you need to take into consideration as well.
I chose to own five jumpers. When you are working with so few items you want to ensure each and every one of them has a different cut and fit in order to suit diffrent needs and occassions. V-necks, high necks,lightweight knits or a bit chunkier forms: plenty of options that can go from casual to dressy year round.
Try them on with your coat. Raise your arms to ensure you’ve got enough room to be comfortable and move around to make sure they’re as comfy as stylish.
My grey chunky high neck jumper, the latest addition to my capsule wardrobe is from the all-time-favourite scandinavian brand Samsøe & Samsøe. It’s quite structured yet very soft and comfortable and it features a size zip which makes it stand out and add some interest to a minimalistic wardrobe.
The high neck makes it perfect for winter with an oversized coat and it also works great as a transitional piece in spring or autumn, on it’s own, when you no longer need a coat.
– SAVVY TIP –
Buying off-season pieces will help you stay on budget.
Whether you are on a year-round capsule wardrobe or not ( or even if you are not on a capsule wardrobe at all) as long as you have a specific and clear vision for your style and wardrobe, you can invest in high quality, luxe pieces off-season. This way you’ll cross things off your lust-list while being more mindful of your spending.
