Now, that person must have left here disappointed, because while I’ve created a nautical-inspired capsule wardrobe and a summer capsule wardrobe, I’ve never done an Audrey Hepburn-style capsule.

I know it’s a giant cliché, but if I had to choose one person whose style I had to emulate, Audrey Hepburn would be that person. Classic, sophisticated, and, above all, SIMPLE, Audrey’s style is timeless, making it easy to emulate without fear of it ever looking dated. Although I’ve created this capsule wardrobe purely for fun, it would also be a good basis for anyone looking to create a whole new wardrobe from scratch, as it consists of fairly basic, versatile pieces, which would work for almost any situation, providing the perfect building blocks from which you can go on to create a style that’s truly your own. If, perish the thought, my wardrobe went up in flames, and I had to start all over again, these are exactly the kind of items I’d buy: and while this capsule relies heavily on black, you can easily switch that out for whatever your own favourite “neutral” is, if black isn’t your thing.
