The Complete guide to a Capsule Closet

As we continue collating our capsule closet lets recap the items we have already covered in earlier posts on this site:

  • Biker Jacket – also known as Moto Jacket
  • Cardigan
  • Plain White Tee
  • Trench Coat
  • Tote Bag
  • Ballet Flats
  • Black Blazer
  • Blue Jeans

The latest in black pants…

Hello friends,

No good wardrobe would be complete without a pair of stunning black pants.  They can be worn casually with a pair of trainers, worn with flats for the school run and worn with a sexy pair of heels for the evening. Whether skinny, cropped or wide legged its all about finding the right pair for your body type.  Equally important is how you pair your pins.  My simple rule is:  If it’s tapered and skinny at the bottom then it can be loose and free form at the top and vice versa.  If you pair a wide leg trouser with a loose top it can look a tad bit unstylish in my opinion although there are exceptions to the rule such as with a large belt to break the silhouette.

Here are some of my favorite black pants:
