EMELIE NATASCHA LINDMARK
Colours play a crucial role for Barcelona-based influencer and content creator Emelie Natascha Lindmark when it comes to building a wardrobe foundation.
For Dennis, the appeal of the essential wardrobe lies in the good foundation that it lays, which gives you some room to play around with your look; styling a basic outfit with a pair of cool sneakers, a nice leather jacket, or a long wool coat can easily elevate an outfit or make for a more sophisticated look.
The idea of a capsule also promotes a simpler and potentially more sustainable way to consume fashion. For Emelie, the ease and simplicity of the capsule wardrobe is also a great way to save time in the morning.
THE CORE ESSENTIALS
BUILDING THE ESSENTIAL WARDROBE
EVALUATE YOUR LIFESTYLE
Consider your daily activities and lifestyle. Your capsule wardrobe should reflect your unique needs, ensuring you have the right balance of casual and dressier pieces.
CHOOSE A COLOUR PALETTE
Stick to a neutral colour palette for your essentials. Neutrals like black, white, grey, and navy are timeless and make mixing and matching a breeze.
ADD PERSONAL TOUCHES
While the focus is on essentials, don't forget to infuse your personality into your wardrobe. A touch of bold colours or accessories, such as scarves, statement jewelry, and stylish shoes, can elevate your look and make it uniquely yours.
