We can’t get enough of the capsule closet and content creator Amy Shaw (IG: @amyfuchsia) is forever our style inspo when it comes to capsule dressing. Choosing high-quality pieces in neutral hues and durable fabrics not only keeps your closet interchangeable, and therefore versatile, it maximizes outfit options, upping wearability. For that reason, investing in premium pieces should, in turn, provide better value for money and reduce cost per wear, a win win. We asked Amy to share her top five premium pieces every capsule closet needs and, even better, how to style them.

Let’s get into it.
Black Wool Blend Longline Coat
Amy’s first pick is this ultra-warm and Fall friendly duster coat. Made with a fuzzy wool-blend fabric, it guarantees to lock in the heat whether you’re pumpkin picking or dressing for date night. This coat is the ultimate capsule contender as it’s black, which means it won’t clash with your other failsafes, and it adds an oversized fit that is stylish, layerable, and most importantly, timeless. Amy said, “A big oversized black coat is a must – I LOVE this one as it’s weighty, warm, and long. It’s a great investment piece.” Style like Amy and layer this capsule pick over a black turtleneck and leather skirt, paired with black leather knee highs and a matching purse (a fully monochrome moment). Or, play with different hues and style over a houndstooth sweater, beige tailored wide-leg pants, and a preppy white purse.
Cream Leather Mini Skirt
Next up, this bottom half beauty. According to Amy, every closet needs a scandi leather mini skirt. But shake up the black and opt for a cool cream shade instead. This guarantees to break up the look, adding a pop of brightness. The skirt Amy picked is made with premium real leather, so you know it’s soft, smooth, and durable. With real leather products, the quality Is higher than their faux leather dupes, making it a great investment choice. The mini is also super flattering, elongating the look of those legs. According to Amy, “It’s the perfect season for leather skirts, they look so great with boots and a sweater.” Style as a capsule outfit with the same black turtleneck (hello capsule pro), black real leather cowboy boots, and a simple black purse.
Real Leather Collarless ’90s Biker Jacket
The next pick is the treasure of the capsule closet. A classic, dependable, never to go out of style black real leather jacket. A premium piece, Amy’s choice of leather jacket oozes style and effortlessness and is the ultimate addition to a white tee and jeans outfit (or in Amy’s case, a black tank and wide-leg denim look). Amy said, “Leather is key for me and my fall winter wardrobe, I love this 90s style biker that will go with all my classic staples.” The real leather feels soft to the touch, and molds to your shape, aging better decade after decade. Because that’s what we love about a real leather jacket. It’s an investment piece that, if looked after, can carry you through dressing for the next 20 years. So choose a timeless style, like this collarless fitted design with silver zip hardware, and prepare to wear it daily.
Mongolian Fur Trim Jacket
Who said capsule had to be plain? Certainly not us. We’re swooning over Amy’s fourth capsule pick, a Mongolian Fur Trim Jacket in a creamy butter yellow. Yes, she’s extravagant, but this piece is the perfect capsule pick because it’s just dramatic enough to make any outfit made with head-to-toe basics look effortlessly muse-worthy. The Mongolian fur trim guarantees you’ll be warm and well dressed, and the camouflaged button front closure keeps the look sleek and premium. Take inspo from Amy and style this trophy jacket with an all-black look and channel a leather mini skirt, tank top, and cowboy boots combo. Don’t forget the ever so versatile white purse.
Dark Blue Wide Leg Jeans
The last and final pick- timeless jeans. Because is any capsule closet complete without them? When it comes to investment jeans, the secret is in the quality, which is why Amy has opted for our organic denim range. This durable fabric can resist the wear and tear of everyday life, whether you’re wearing them to the office or the bar. A nod to vintage, this deep blue wash and wide leg cut is not only ultra-comfortable, but screams 90s dressing, yet we can count on this nostalgic style to be ever relevant year after year. An essential for a stripped-back look, Amy said, “Wide leg jeans work all year round and are perfectly paired with sweaters and coats as it gets colder”. Style Amy’s last capsule pick just like her, with a plain black tank and a classic leather jacket.
