Classic wardrobe essentials and zero-effort all-in-ones in crisp white, clotted cream and every shade of blue are the off-duty staples your spring wardrobe needs now
You’ll likely have heard of the concept of a workwear capsule wardrobe, but have you considered a capsule wardrobe for weekends? Just like its weekday equivalent, the key to off-duty success is a selection of forever-classic wardrobe essential pieces and fuss-free all-in-ones that are ready for every downtime eventuality. Take this printed ivory midi dress, which looks just as good with a classic long-sleeved striped T-shirt and flatform brogues as it does with a leather biker jacket and heels. Similarly, a statement navy jumpsuit can be styled up or down depending where the weekend takes you.
Maximise the possibilities of your weekend wardrobe and avoid outfit fatigue by choosing pick-and-mix separates in a palette of blue, white and cream. This ruffle-detail chambray blouse taps into the trend for pretty denim, while stripes are perennially chic, whether you go for a narrow-striped V-neck knitted jumper or a classic striped T-shirt. Expand your denim horizons with wide-legged cropped indigo jeans and a surprisingly versatile straight-leg pair in bright white. For a smarter option, we love these dark-blue ankle-grazing herringbone trousers.
Warmth-boosting, drizzle-beating layers are key components of a weekend capsule for spring. Denim jackets work for every season and get better with age. An oversized style in a washed-out shade can be thrown over everything else in your wardrobe. Contrast vintage-look denim with crisp white: this linen button-detail blouse will keep you cool as temperatures rise. Our latest take on the classic trench coat sees authentic details meet a new shorter length, in five colours including khaki (pictured) and navy. Not only that but it’s our most sustainable style yet, made from recycled polyester and BCI cotton.
