Words by Ellie McKenna

A capsule wardrobe consists of your most essential clothing items, which serve as the building blocks of your wardrobe. You can create entire looks with just the these items, and you can also layer capsule pieces with seasonal pieces.

Come along with us as we show you how you can create one of your own, using stores from The Glades!

Zara High-Rise Straight-Fit Long-Length Jeans

Everyone needs a staple blue jean in their collection! They are the foundation to every cool/casual outfit – perfect for the all year round!

H&M - Cotton T-shirt

Gone are the days of graphic tees when capsule wardrobes are concerned. Whether your tucking it in to a trouser or skirt or even tied up over a slip dress, we all need a basic white tee that will pair with absolutely anything!

A wide-leg or straight trousers are all you need to master the high/low dressing that we’ve spotted trending everywhere! Just add an easy knit and expensive looking coat, and whether you’re wearing trainers or ankle boots, you’ve got a minimal effort outfit with maximum impact.

M&S - Double Breasted Trench Coat with Recycled Polyester

A good coat is the perfect finishing touch to every outfit, so they need to tick a lot of boxes. Warm, practical but it also needs to be versatile, the kind of piece you can easy dress up or down making the trench coat the greatest addition to a capsule wardrobe!

Monsoon - Doris wrap dress in sustainable viscose green

On the days you’re in a rush, and the days you’ve got time to dress your best, the long dress is perfect for summer and spring, day or evening, and will cut your getting-ready time in half. Even when its a bit chilly, tuck in a wool jumper and you’re good to go!


Worn all spring/summer with a midi skirt or open over swimwear and again in autumn and winter over a turtleneck and under a blazer, this is a buy that’s more than worth its cost per wear!


Add one of these into your wardrobe to get an effortless, clean look. Layer yours under white workwear shirts and crew-neck knits or wear tucked into straight-leg denim, a true staple!

bunka - Estella Bartlett Bag - Black Penton Tote

Tote bags are an accessory that you can trust. These roomy styles will fit anything and everything as well as suiting every outfit!

As soon as the sun comes out, so do the glasses! Choose sunglasses that have a timeless quality about them, staying simple with the colour and shape of them will ensure the most uses and add that extra sprinkle of chic to your outfit.
