6 Spring Basics to Create a Capsule Wardrobe
Date Posted:30 September 2021
Season by season, you can rely on a capsule wardrobe to save you spending thousands of dollars on unnecessary clothes. It creates the framework for building a wardrobe that works for you and is armed with ready to wear outfits that you love and match back with your lifestyle. On top of this, it makes daily dressing easy as it's designed to help you get ready quickly.
Here at Bamboo Body, we create garments that work back with others from our collections and pieces in your wardrobe.
This year, we're making spring dressing easy with a concise edit of the pieces you need this season. These styles offer up combinations from casual, to smart-casual to dressy. Keep scrolling to shop your must-have pieces for spring!
With its above elbow length short sleeves, rounded neckline and UPF rating of 50+ the Sophie Top is great for those who prefer that little bit more coverage in a simple tee. Its side splits and curved bottom hem give this tee elegance and edge while the longer length makes it easy to disguise the stomach. Wear this style to work with our Ruched Skirt or tucked into our Pocket Pants for a weekend hike!
The Melanie Dress will be your spring hero piece for any spring event, picnic in the park or Sunday brunch. With its flowy and flirty shape, this midi dress is easy to wear and doesn't need much styling to look standout as the colour does all the talking. Featuring a double layered bodice for support, an elegant square neckline and full skirt, the Melanie can be styled to suit any occasion.
To tone down this summery staple, pop on a simple pair of neutral-coloured slides, minimal jewellery and a denim jacket. For extra edge, wear a simple white shirt or our Shorter Bamboo Tee over the top and tie it at the waist. Team with sneakers to top off your look and you're set! For a special event, style with statement earrings and our Drape Cardi if you need that extra layer.
Offering the elegance of a skirt and the confidence of pants, our loose Bamboo Culottes feature a fabric waistband that can be worn flat or folded over. This waistband is great for those who try to steer away from the added bulk of elasticated pants or prefer a seamless fit around the waist.
This trans-seasonal basic will match back with every top in the Bamboo Body collection and can be styled multiple ways. Pair it with our Eadie Top and work the half tuck look or match it back with our Mara Top or Relaxed Singlet for a flowy, summery vibe. For work, team it with a clean-cut blazer and heels or team it with our Rachelle Top and a longline necklace for a night out.
With their adjustable leg length and functional pockets, the bamboo Pocket Pants are a basic that will be sure to get wear weekly. The beauty of the adjustable leg length means you can wear them full or 7/8th depending on your height or the occasion. When worn long, these pants have a tapered leg that finishes below the ankle. Features pockets at the waist and thigh, an elasticated waistband with a functional draw waist draw cord and bamboo button on the side of the leg.
Designed to be worn with absolutely anything! To make these versatile pants dressy, team with our Woven V Neck Blouse or Relax Boatneck. For casual, everyday wear pair it back with our Dolman Top and layer with our Cocoon Cardi.
The Rachelle Top is the wardrobe essential you never knew you needed! With its longer length, side splits and higher neckline this top does all the talking so, on the days where you aren't in the mood to style, the Rachelle has your back as the cut does all the talking!
For a work appropriate approach, team it with our Double Layer Tube Skirt or Ruched Skirt. For a casual and summery vibe, pair it with our Lana Long Skirt or Essential Pants and a longline necklace. To balance out the look and create shape, the Rachelle can be teamed with the Soft Bamboo Leggings and the Cocoon Cardigan.
Featuring a draped open front, a dolman fit sleeve and a scooped back hem, the Draped Cardigan was designed to use on the go. Pop this versatile cardi in your bag when you're travelling; it's the perfect layering piece when you're unsure of the weather and urgently need that extra warmth. Due to its lightweight material, the Drape Cardi can easily be folded up and stored tight and compact.
Available in various shades, this little cardi can be worn with absolutely anything - from dresses, pants, skirts and jeans, the options are endless!
