The Classics


When I started thinking about putting my own capsule together I knew it would be filled with the classics. Classics are something I shunned in my twenties, opting for loud and and patterned every time, which was fun.
But over the past couple of years I have definitely found a new appreciation for the classics. Bizarrely, when I was 17 I remember my favourite outfit being a leather jacket, a plain white tee, my best jeans and a pair of Adidas trainers that I had fiercely saved my weekend job wages for.
So it appears I've reverted back to my 17 year old self's style. 
I like to think I've added in a few nice pieces, but it really does show a case in point, that even 14 years later, some styles just don't age. 
They are classics.
Now in my thirties I am the most happy I have ever been with my wardrobe as I have filled it with some pretty decent classics which make up the backbone of my daily wears.
The new addition to my capsule was this trench coat. 
I mentioned that I had to replace the Trench I started my capsule with due to it being a tad tight and me splitting the lining. It was given to me by a friend and never cost a penny so it did me well thus far. 
But with it being in my capsule I knew it was going to get a lot of wear over the following months.
And thankfully I had a credit note for H&M; anyone else forget to send stuff back in the month allowance? Yeh.. my bad, but this time it worked in my favour at least, I found this beautiful neutral trench for exactly the amount I had on my credit note.
Talk about meant to be.
The length is perfect for me as it actually falls to the knee rather than an unflattering mid-thigh (my chunkiest area that should be disguised at all costs ;), the colour is the perfect neutral and the tie belt is my personal preference rather than an annoying buckle.
Happy trench wearing days.
I paired it with some more classics from my #RtHCapsuleWardrobe: A classic white button down, my ankle grazer tailored trousers and my Stan Smiths. 
I think its safe to say Stan Smiths are now classics don't you? 
All finished off with a pop of red and the cutest puppy.
So far I am loving my capsule wardrobe, but shall give you a full run down later this week.

  2. I feel the same way about classics! For the longest time I WANTED my style to be whimsical, filled with prints, colors and lots of details. When it comes down to it, though, I feel the most "me" in the classics. Now I'm trying to run with that!
