THE ULTIMATE CAPSULE WARDROBE GUIDE
After over a year of cancelled events, no travel, and the ambiguous “return to the office” dates, most of us have turned to the things in their lives they do have say over… their wardrobe.
Making more mindful decisions in how we spend our days, the people we invest in and of course if you are anything like us at Azura Runway, the wardrobe essentials.
While we have seen the panicked hoarding of essential goods, the later months have shown us less may, in fact be more - especially when it comes to your wardrobe.
Goodbye Impulse buying of fast-fashion and hello the return of 90’s inspired minimalism. We're all about being paired back but never boring. Gathering the versatile, trans-seasonal wardrobe essentials that us at Azura are turning to.
A power blazer looks great over your favourite tee, paired with some black dress pants for the office or paired back with your favourite jeans for a chic casual look. Whether you are strutting through the office or hanging on the back of your desk chair between zoom calls a blazer is key component to your capsule wardrobe.
BLACK DRESS PANT
Want to feel like you are wearing sweat pants but look a chic goddess? Well the High-waisted straight leg trouser are calling your name. With a universally flattering cut that hits the right spot on your waist, they paired perfectly with a tucked in tee or chunky knit.
Nothing says i am a powerful woman like a good coat. Even if you are wearing the most casual outfit a statement coat over the top changes everything. If Carrie Bradshaw can run through New York City wearing only Pyjamas and a fur coat so can you.
Nothing says chic like a small pair of gold hoops. Understated is the new statement.
Nothing more exciting than wearing a dress that feels like you are wearing a cozy jumper. Zoom meetings from home can be a pain to dress up for but alas the knit dress is comfortable enough to wear while sending emails from your desk, but chic enough to feel like you put in some effort. This is a trans-seasonal investment that will most certainly outlast the pandemic, meaning you can pair with some jewellery and slides whenever you are ready to get back out there.
Want to be comfortable and not feeling like wearing a blazer? We got you.. A super cute Knit will do the job. It is the in between sweats and blazer staple that everyone must have in their wardrobe.
Keep it simple with a classic pair of high waisted Levi's. Don't want to buy a new pair? Easy... buy them vintage and pair them with some winter boots or loafers. These OG's are a wardrobe must for your everyday wear that you will not regret.
Who said a white shirt was boring? There is nothing more satisfying than a crisp cotton shirt that can easily be worn after work buttoned down with a cute pair of Levis and sandals.
It's a staple that we often forget to refresh, but once you do it will change your entire wardrobe. The 90's inspired rib racerback tucked into a pair of jeans, black dress pants, sweats, or layer it under a blazer or white cotton shirt for a more chic look.
Who said sneakers cant be chic? These days sneakers are the new norm and we are here for it. If you are working from home or its a casual Friday in the office, keep your outfit smart and causal with a classic white sneaker.
It's no lie that sweats are the new uniform these days when we are working from home. Jazz up your loungewear by pairing with an oversized blazer and your favourite trainers and cap.
In our eyes an outfit is not complete without a cool pair of shades. The right pair should be able to go with any outfit. We suggest going for a tortoise shell.
Hold everything bag.
Going into the office and you are trying to fit everything and everything into a micro purse? yeah no thank you.. its time to get smart and invest in a groovy tote bag that fits all the essentials but still compliments your outfit. We suggest a leather tote or canvas if you are looking for a more casual look.
