Introducing the Classics: Capsule Wardrobe Items
Seasons come and go, but the classics are forever. The 'classics' are the capsule wardrobe items that every wardrobe needs, and the styles every woman can rely on. Throughout changing trends and moving seasons, our classic styles remain flawless and chic. Don't just take our word for it though; some of the most iconic women in history have fashioned these classic wardrobe items!
The Classic Polo Neck
The polo neck is the definition of a classic and has been a staple style for decades. Worn famously by the beautiful Audrey Hepburn, and rebelliously by the likes of The Beatles, the polo neck has been a garment to express confidence, modesty and style for years.
Now, the polo neck remains an essential in any capsule wardrobe. It’s a style for all occasions and can be dressed up or down as a strong capsule wardrobe item should. But not only that, it requires minimal effort to achieve a put-together look that boosts confidence for a consistent feel good style.
We’ve added our own contemporary edge to the classic cashmere polo necks by designing contrast hems on both the back of the neck and cuff of our luxurious polo neck knits. These striking features bring the polo neck into the 21st century without compromising on the features that we all know and love!
Our favourite ways to style the polo neck:
- Tucked into a pair of your favourite jeans
- Dressed up with a gorgeous maxi skirt and a pair of white trainers
- Styled with some cigarette trousers and brogues
The Classic V-Neck
The V-neck is another classic wardrobe essential; elegant in looks with the added benefit of elongating the neck for a flattering and feminine style. This classic neckline is great for styling shirts or lace vests underneath for added detail. A must-have feature for any classic wardrobe item is versatility, and the classic V-neck offers just that - it's versatile, feminine and stylish!
Our favourite styles:
- Layered over a lacy vest top for added detail
- Loosely worn over some skinny jeans with one side tucked in
- Dressed with layered necklaces to enhance the V-neckline
The Classic Crew Neck
Traditionally, the crew neck was associated with American-style sweatshirts, for which the iconic crew neck is a recognisable feature. It has a sporty feel to it but has grown to have its own identity, now used in knitwear, t-shirts, dresses and more!
Princess Diana so stylishly sported the crew neck on many occasions, often in a sweatshirt but also as a layer over dresses and shirts. Now, the crew neck is a fantastic neckline to have within your core knitwear collection. It’s modest and suitable for any occasion.
Style our cashmere crew necks for an effortless outfit - perfectly paired with jeans or adapted to the warmer months with a pair of floaty culottes. Our classics really do go with everything!
Our favourite styles:
- Layered over a crisp white shirt
- Worn with sports-luxe joggers and trainers for off duty chic
