Everybody wants that effortless French girl style. The thing about French girls is they always look classic, timeless, chic and effortless. Even when wearing high-street pieces most of us already own. So what’s their secret? It’s the 5-Piece wardrobe trick. Essentially a capsule wardrobe built around key investment pieces.

So how do you create your own 5-piece wardrobe? Look for quality basics with great materials, timeless shapes and patterns and nothing too over-the-top. Here’s our guide to help you figure it out…

 

1. A timeless t-shirt that won’t lose shape

For price and quality try GAP or J.Crew. Both make basic tees that have a perfect fit, nice linen blend and fabric. Also these tees will survive the washing machine.

2. Jeans that won’t fade

MIH makes jeans that are popular in the fashion industry.  The Topanga Midrise is one of its best-selling pieces. We love the perfect fade and natural wear patterns at the seams.

3. A sharp blazer

A smart black blazer is essential for any well-edited wardrobe – wear it to the office or with denim on off-duty days. Tailored from tactile wool-piqué for a slim fit, Stella McCartney’s ‘Ingrid’ style has elegant lapels and a back vent for ease of movement. We especially like that it’s lined in satin-twill to smoothly layer over sweaters or T-shirts.

4. A flattering silk shirt

Make a smart investment for your capsule wardrobe with Equipment’s ‘Signature’ blush shirt. Cut into a relaxed menswear-inspired silhouette, this lightweight washed-silk piece will add a hint of tomboy chic to corporate or casual looks. Opt for luxe styling – a wrap skirt and slides are perfect picks.

5. A little black dress

Vince’s little black dress has a contemporary, cool feel. It’s cut in a shift silhouette from fluid crepe and lined in smoothing silk. Minimalist at first glance, it turns to reveal an elegant cutaway that shows just a hint of skin. Team yours with pristine sneakers.
