5 Game-Changing Pieces to Make Your Spring Capsule Wardrobe Feel Current

The ‘capsule wardrobe’ is a concept which always seems to resonate the most with shoppers in spring, as this is a time when the weather can be its most unpredictable and so it really pays to have all your classic foundations just right. A classic trench coat, floral dress and pastel blazer are reliable year after year, and have proved to be some of the most useful pieces for navigating impromptu heatwaves followed by random downpours. If you have already assembled this practical spring wardrobe, and are looking to give it a 2019 edge, then there are five game-changers which will make your existing capsule feel like brand new and complete.

If you’ve been anywhere near Who What Wear in 2019 you will have noticed that strappy sandals are the leading shoe trend, and they look as good with a trench coat and jeans, as they do with a wedding guest dress. If you are looking for a more subtle tweak you can make to your looks every day, pearl jewellery is an accessory trend that the high street has really got behind and can have a big impact. To see and shop all five spring updates, keep scrolling.

When it comes to sandals this year — the thinner the straps, the better. 
White denim has now ditched its once tacky reputation, and is no longer just reserved for summer holidays — ivory jeans look particularly chic with chunky rollnecks and camel coats.
Pleated skirts are on each of our editor’s spring shopping lists, as they are the perfect item for this fickle weather. 
Pearl jewellery is everywhere at the moment, from headbands to pendant necklaces, and they look amazing layered with more simple medallion necklaces and hoop earrings.
Leather isn’t usually a fabric that makes its way into spring/summer collections, however designers including Isabel Marant, Nanushka, Victoria Beckham and Ganni have been bringing the leather shirt back. They are the perfect partner to your trench coat.
