If you’re wondering what a capsule wardrobe is, then look no further. We have put together the perfect guide on what to include in your spring capsule wardrobe for tall women.
A capsule wardrobe is a collection of clothing that you can co-ordinate to wear together in varying ways, so you can keep creating unique outfits with minimal clothing. The idea is to use clothing that doesn’t go out of trend no matter the season, for example, skirts, trousers and jackets. You can rely on your capsule wardrobe to bring you style and elegance no matter the occasion.
From the dress of the season that’ll see you throughout spring to the footwear that will keep you comfy and stylish, read on to discover the pieces that you’ll need to create your spring capsule wardrobe.
