The absolutely stunning local boutique, LUXE in Hervey Bay is filled with hand selected luxe linen pieces Made in Italy, accessories you’ve only dreamt of and the opportunity to make it all a reality by purchasing local.

For this month we styled the wonderful Susan with a #capsulewardrobe approach.

What does that even mean?

History lesson: Capsule wardrobe is a term used in American publications as early as the 1940s to denote a small collection of garments designed to be worn together which harmonized in colour and line. The term capsule wardrobe was revived by Susie Faux, the owner of a London boutique called “Wardrobe” in the 1970s.

According to Faux, a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that DO NOT go out of fashion, such as skirts (dresses), trousers, and coats, which can then be augmented with seasonal pieces.

The aim is to have an outfit suitable for any occasion without owning excessive items of clothing. This is usually achieved by buying what are considered to be “key” or “staple” items in coordinating colours.

For Susan we mixed the approach and selected 1x pair of shoes, 1x hat, 1x necklace and 1x white shirt as key versatile capsule accessories to complement each outfit then augmented each look with seasonal pieces such as the dress-tie sleeve and mustard shorts.

Make time this month to LUXE yourself and your wardrobe #youdeserveit x
