A way to organise your closet
Ever heard of the five piece wardrobe trend? Also called: the capsule wardrobe. It is a way to organise your closet based on the essentials, which became popular in the 1960s and 70s as a movement against over-consumption.
A beautiful way to reduce fashion waste and only keep items that fit well and that you wear often.
French do it better
It’s said that French women only buy 5 quality items each year. Sounds boring? The key is to choose garments you love and do not get tired of after one season. Like a classic leather shoe you can wear year round and goes well with any outfit.
How to create the ultimate classic wardrobe:
Step 1 is to keep the basics that fit you well, and say goodbye to the ones that don’t. Give them to friends or donate them to charity, or sell them at a market and use the profits for your investment pieces.
After you’ve done a wardrobe cleanse, have a look at your basics to see what is missing:
Vogue happens to have made a list with all essentials you need for 2022 here.
Start building your essential wardrobe by adding these items:
Whether it is a skinny, classic 501 levi’s or a flared, you can’t go wrong with a good pair of jeans that matches your body type.
Dressed up or down, this classic goes well with a crop top or T in summer and a tucked in knit in winter.
A classic boot
Opt for a shoe that goes with everything and can be worn all year round. A durable vegetable tanned leather shoe will be an investment piece that gets more comfortable each day you wear them. An ankle boot is a good option to pair with most essential wardrobe items.
Do we need to explain how simple yet stylish a T-shirt can look?
For an effortless everyday look, a basic shirt is what matches any jeans. Not to mention, this will turn a working-from-home vibe to a ready-for-any-meeting outfit. Whether you match it with a pair of boots when you are on the go or heels when entering that meeting.
How did we not start with this one, there is always a good reason to wear a black dress. Casual or during a more formal occasion, you simply can’t go wrong with this all time classic. We love to wear a dress with ankle boots to add a bit of bohemian feels to it.
A good knit
Thrown over your shoulders in Spring, or to snuggle up in in Winter. Opt for a durable knit that you can style all year round.
A leather jacket
When you’ve found the right fit and style, a leather jacket can give you years of pleasure. We are in love with this one
An elegant coat that pulls together any casual look, or thrown over a knit to add an extra layer on wintery days.
The beautiful thing about classic ankle boots like ROF’s is that you can wear them all year round and styled with any essential basic.
