Back by popular demand is Omiru’s capsule wardrobe, updated for Spring/Summer 2009. As with our Fall/Winter capsule wardrobe, these foundation pieces were meticulously chosen with versatility in mind. Our purposefully small capsule wardrobe covers a range of classic styles - trendproof pieces that are worth investing in. Notice the mix of high and low that is the signature of a stylish woman’s wardrobe–and the fact that a few of the pieces repeat from our Fall/Winter foundation wardrobe. From the classic trench to the perfect pair of blue jeans, these are the pieces that are worth building a wardrobe around.
Presenting Omiru’s Womenswear Spring Summer Capsule Wardrobe:
The Classic Trenchcoat: Pick a neutral color for your classic trench; this is a piece that will be with you for years to come.
The Hip Length Blazer: A hip length blazer in a versatile grey fabric will take you from day to evening.
The Casual Jacket: Mix things up with a short sleeved jacket - great for layering.
The Day Dress: An unstructured floaty style will work alone - or paired with pants.
The Patterned Sweater: Add visual interest to any outfit with a patterned sweater.
The Smart Cardigan: Try a classic cardigan with a twist - two button-adorned pockets at the waistline.
The Dressy Tank: A simple tank can go from casual to fabulous in a sumptuous fabric or artistic pattern.
The Layering Tank: A staple of your wardrobe, year round. Choose a nice bright color that you would love to see peeking out from under a blouse or sweater.
The Dressy Blouse: Make a simple blouse visually Pop with a bright bold color.
The Button Down Shirt: The classic white button down is one of the most versatile shirts you’ll ever own. Wear it year round.
The Casual Top: Look for a top with unique details - like the black trim that outlines this halter top.
The Drapey Blouse: Dress this blouse up or down - it pairs equally well with casual jeans as it does formal skirts and pants.
The Perfect Fit Jeans: Keep your favorite jeans in your closet year-round.
The Tailored Trousers: Quality fabrics and great details (like the sailor buttons) make these trousers the pants you’ll keep reaching into your closet for.
The Knee Length Shorts: Try a solid colored knee length short for a spiffy, flattering look.
The Warm Weather Skirt: Mix things up with an interesting pattern - like these polka dots.
Last thoughts? This capsule wardrobe is best used as a blueprint for your own wardrobe. Use it as a guide, not as a straight shopping list. We intend for these pieces to inspire you to make your own wardrobe choices - so your closet has your own personal stamp.
Let the inspiration begin!
