How To Build A Capsule Denim Collection
Capsule wardrobes are famously known to bring both ease, style, and functionality into your closet. At the heart of every great capsule wardrobe lies quality denim that is built to last. The focus should be on wearable colors, styles, and materials. We have created a capsule denim collection highlighting five different styles that create the perfect base for your buildable, capsule wardrobe.
Classic High-Rise Skinny
The High Rise Skinny Jean is a classic must-have in your capsule collection. Skinny jeans can be styled in a variety of ways, which is why we’ve designed a handful of colors and styles to choose from. For an elegant and elevated look, choose a darker wash and pair it with a simple heel. We love the Alexa High Rise fit. For a more casual look, choose a lighter wash with a bit of distressing for an effortless and comfortable outfit.
Timeless Straight Leg
Every wardrobe needs a classic pair of straight-leg jeans. The Kristine Mid-Rise Straight Jean looks great on a variety of body types as it works to lengthen the leg while offering comfort and style. We love to pair these with a casual blazer and a simple loafer. If you are looking for a more casual look, style them with a pair of chucks and a soft, cotton t-shirt. You really can’t go wrong when dressing in this pant.
Try a Bootcut
A bootcut or flared jean adds a little zest to any denim collection. They’re best on days when you’re hoping to pull off a more elevated look while staying cool. We especially like The Billie High Rise Bootcut Jean in black. They take on the look of a sophisticated trouser, but still can be styled down if need be. They tend to run more cropped so keep these in mind for when the weather starts to warm up!
Wide Leg Denim
A wide-leg jean is a must when building a capsule denim collection. Our Archer High Rise Wide Leg Jeans are so fun to style with a little heel if you’re looking to elevate your overall day-to-day looks. Pair them with a square toe shoe for a 70’s feel, or slide your favorite tall boot under the pant legs to transition your winter shoe into spring. There is no reason to shy away from a wide pant, and genuinely every reason to lean in and have fun in them!
A Classic LDJ (Little Denim Jacket)
Would a capsule denim collection be complete without a little denim jacket? It goes with almost every style and can easily be dressed up or down. Opt for a classic, Canadian tuxedo by matching the denim shade of your jeans. If that look isn’t for you, choose a darker wash or a black denim jacket to add dimension and contrast to your look. Our Gabriella-LBD Classic Denim Jacket comes in seven shades of denim, offering a variety of styling options!
Because jeans are such a favored piece of clothing in most of our wardrobes it can be easy to always reach for the same style. When you step outside of your comfort zone and add a variety of shapes, fits, and shades of denim to your closet, you’re ensuring that your wardrobe will always house comfortable basics and elevated looks. We know a pair of jeans can get us halfway dressed. Now it's time to choose a selection of styles, grow our capsule wardrobe, and create an effortless yet elevated style.
