Your ultimate shopping guide: These basics belong in every closet

"We now have more time to organize and declutter - and to learn how to optimize our wardrobe," agrees stylist Eunice Abe on the capsule wardrobe trend in lockdown. It's not about blindly sorting out your entire closet, but about reducing it to a few well thought-out, selected, timeless and trendless pieces. "A capsule wardrobe helps me shop less and wear my clothes over and over again," explains Eunice, "and less impulsively looking for the next best outfit." That's exactly what I want - and that's what I have made. Before the pandemic, a nice outfit post on Instagram always made me want to go shopping; But since I reduced my wardrobe to about 15 essential basics, it's much easier for me to distinguish between what I think I need and what I really need.
