7 Pieces Every Stylish Woman Should Own

7 Pieces Every Stylish Woman Should Own

We’ve got a problem. A clothing problem…

Every year, more and more of us are spending money on clothes we don’t need, and hoarding pieces we’ll never wear. With the price of clothing getting lower, and catwalk-inspired items becoming more accessible, we’re buying impulsively, yet wearing sparingly.

In her article ‘The History of a Cheap Dress’, writer Elizabeth Cline notes that ‘our clothing consumption has gone through the roof…our closets are larger and more stuffed than ever, as we’ve traded quality and style for low prices and trend-chasing.’ So what’s the solution to this clothing crisis?

A capsule wardrobe isn’t a particularly new phenomenon – it’s been around since the phrase was coined in the late 1970s. Used to describe a selection of classic pieces that complement each other, it’s the perfect way to curb your spending and rein in excessive shopping – whilst looking stylish every day.

If you’re looking to start a capsule wardrobe – or just want to invest in some timeless staples for your current one – look no further. The Hut is here to help: read on to discover the 7 pieces every stylish woman should own…

    Never underestimate the power of plain black trousers – especially if they’re beautifully tailored, like this Samsoe and Samsoe pair. Often thought to be less comfortable than jeans or leggings, this design is made from stretch fabric to ensure you never want to take them off…

    A Little Black Dress | Hugo Kalula Shift Dress

    A little black dress should take pride of place in your wardrobe, and you should always opt for a classic cut over anything more cutting-edge. We love the adorable collar on this Hugo shift; blending vintage vibes with a more modern length, this dress can be dressed up or down for any occasion.

    The nautical trend never falls particularly far off the fashion pack’s radar: each summer, it’s the talk of the season, so make sure to invest in a striped shirt to throw on over jeans, or tuck into high waisted trousers. Pick one made from a silk, like this Gestuz Mie Blouse, to keep your casual look effortlessly luxe.
