How To Build A Capsule Wardrobe: 4 Elevated Basics

How To Build A Capsule Wardrobe: 4 Elevated Basics

Hi Bolt Babez!! Can you believe it is already the start of fall?! It feels like summer has flown by, but I am honestly ready for the temperature to cool down. Fall has always been my favorite season not only because of the pumpkin patches and PSL from Starbucks, but I also love fall fashion! I love the sweaters, jackets, vest, and so much more that comes with the fall fashion season. Here at Bolt we kicked off fall with the launch of our first curated collection of the season: Elevated Basics! This collection is filled with chic, versatile, and high-quality pieces you will be wearing all fall & winter long. These items will soon be your favorite closet staples and great pieces to have in a capsule wardrobe (pieces that are interchangeable!) So here are 4 pieces you need to start building a capsule wardrobe!

1. Leather Pants

Leather pants are a staple piece to have in your wardrobe that can be worn in so many different ways! I love dressing our Turning Heads Wide Leg Leather Pants pants up with a blazer and bodysuit or dressing it down for a day look with a graphic tee. The City Nights Flare Leather Pants are so fun to wear for a night in the city or dinner with friends! The possibilities are endless when it comes to a pair of black leather pants, and I love that both of these have amazing stretch. You can wear these all day and night and be comfy and stylish (which is the best combo!)

2. Blazer 

I have been LOVING the workwear trend because they are all versatile pieces! Blazers are no exception, there are endless events where you can wear a blazer. I personally have to dress up for class, so it is the perfect piece to wear during the day and transition to a dinner night look! You can layer underneath this blazer your go to tank, a graphic tee, bodysuit, or a mock neck top to create multiple different looks. The Day To Night Green Blazer and Day To Night Caramel Blazer are also awesome to wear year round, in the fall & winter pair it with pants and in the spring & summer pair it with dresses and shorts. These blazers will be staples in your wardrobe for years to come! 

3. Bodysuit

A bodysuit is a staple that everyone needs to have in their closet! You can wear a bodysuit for any occasion and it is the PERFECT layering piece for the fall and winter months. The Back To Basics Cream, Black, and Brown Bodysuits come in stunning neutral colors that you can mix and match with any pant option, which makes it the perfect choice to add in your capsule wardrobe. These bodysuits hold you in while not making you feel suffocated and offer the perfect amount of coverage

4. Chic Coat    

As I got older I learned the importance of having not only a functional coat but one that looks nice as well! I mean you don't want to ruin your trendy outfit with a coat that doesn’t match style or color wise. That is where the New York Chic Long Coat comes in! The light beige color will match perfectly with all your fall and winter outfits, but you will also stay nice and cozy as well. It is the perfect fabric weight that you can layer things underneath but it is still going to keep you warm in the fall months. I absolutely love the oversized style on this coat as well, because it makes it so easy to wear for all different occasions. You can wear this piece as a part of your outfit to a pumpkin patch or just throw it on to stay warm walking across campus. You will be grabbing this coat over and over again not just this season, but for years to come! 

I hope you LOVE all of the pieces in our new Elevated Basics Collection and are able to find staple pieces to wear for years to come! All of these items provide so much versatility with a mix of trendy which I love. If you are looking to start a capsule wardrobe or simply find a piece that you can wear over and over again these are the items for you! I have to know though, what is your favorite item from the collection? I think mine has to be the leather pants or blazers! I can't wait to see how you style your new wardrobe pieces this fall!
