A well-compiled capsule wardrobe makes life that little bit easier – and makes getting dressed each morning more enjoyable, by providing the basis for any number of looks. Here, Superbalist Fashion Director Kelly Fung shows you how to select and style your staples, keeping in mind that these versatile pieces should feel as good as they look.
Finding the best basics for the personal aesthetic you're building requires investing a little time and effort, but thankfully will not require investing your life savings. At less than R500, the key building blocks you've been searching for are right here.
Stuck for your next office outfit? If you've worn the same three pairs of trousers to work for a little too long, try Kelly's suggestion for a comfortable yet professional office ensemble: soft tailoring, a do-it-all blouse, and dressier flats in lieu of heels.
It's an old school approach that still works: skimp on the fashion, but spend on the accessories. Anyone who's had a bag or shoe handed down by a family member will understand this one. The key to amplifying your look with this tip is this: don't just get any pair of shoes, get the ones that say 'you', loud and clear.
