STYLE ADVICE: What new pieces can I buy to update my capsule wardrobe looks?

Posted on: February 9, 2015

QUESTION: What new pieces can I buy to update my capsule wardrobe looks?

ANSWERS:  We love the appeal of versatile fashion and on-trend pieces can always slot easily into capsule wardrobes along with those all important fashion basics. Sometimes it just takes on pieces to give you a fresh perspective on your entire wardrobe.

1. Tara Jarmon top £145: Blue is one of the big colours of the new season from must-have denim looks to bolder sea blue shades and patterns. This silk blouse is a wardrobe keeper. Style with a pencil skirt and open front cardigan for work, jeans and a strappy sandal for a night out, and denim shorts and wedge sandals for a fabulous holiday look:

What this means is fashion with a military flavour to it…think functional in feel but ultra stylish. Colours are low-key like khaki, stone, navy and greys and fabrics have a fluid silky look to them. Cargo pockets (big or small) are key detail of this look. These trousers slot into that mood without being overly trendy. They will work perfectly with casual tees and slim fit jumpers as well as a silky blouse like the Tara Jarmon one above for a smarter look:

3. Ted Baker jacket £229: We often talk about updating wardrobes with a leather biker jacket. It’s the type of piece that gives a modern or edgier feel to all outfits from dresses to jeans. For some people though it can be a bit too edgy. There are a lot of great lightweight textured tweed versions of a biker and these really are a good addition to any wardrobe especially if you can find one in a neutral shade. You will get a lot of use out of this Ted Baker number. Style with jeans or your trousers above and a pair of animal print flats for a casual weekend look. Come the wedding season this is the perfect partner to any fabulous occasion cocktail dress or long evening number:

5. Banana Republic bag £89.95: Use your accessories to introduce prints to your wardrobe:

6. M&S dress £59: …or splash out with one of the season’s must-have patterned dresses. Stye with neutral tone accessories by day and come the evening why not add a wild contrasting touch of colour with a clutch or sandal (see below):garment-2511109-3264562

7. J. Crew sandals £228: These shoes are a great alternative to a work day court but also double up as the perfect piece for an evening or occasion outfit:

8. Isabel Marant earrings £135: It’s all about earrings this summer. Whether you want to try out those cool ear cuffs or go for something more classic. Drop or chandelier earrings don’t just have to be worn in the evenings. Dress up your day looks with a bit of glitz:
