A capsule wardrobe refers to a wardrobe consisting of pieces that never go out of style. So say goodbye to all your future wardrobe crises. Here’s our guide to the fail-safe items you’ll find in any Danish woman’s closet.   

Quality basics 

 

Before you do anything, start building your wardrobe with the basics. In every Danish woman’s wardrobe, you’ll find at least a handful of tees and tops in high quality that can be used with every outfit. Once you have the basics figured out it, becomes much easier adding the more unique pieces to express your style. 

Classic shirt 

 

A classic shirt is essential in every capsule wardrobe. And once you have found a shirt that fits your needs, it’s easy to style all year around. For the colder months, wear it with a sweater over and in the summer, roll up the sleeves or leave it open with a tee under. Look to brands such as Sportmax, Totême and Han Kjøbenhavn for ultimate shirt selections. 

A pair of all-occasions heels

 

For the days when you need a little extra it’s good to have a pair of all-occasions heels to turn to. Danish women rarely dress up, but they find ways to work around adding some party-pieces without feeling overdressed. 

Cashmere knit 

 

It certainly pays off spending a bit more on high-quality knitwear that will stand the test of time. Choose your cashmere knit in a subtle color, so you won’t grow tired of it, and you have a fail-safe item to fall back on any day. Remember to follow the care label to secure its long lifespan. 

High-waisted pants 

 

Low rise has made a few hints of its comeback. But let’s be honest, given the very few people who suit the style, it would be irresponsible to let the trend reemerge. Invest instead in a pair universally-flattering high-waisted pants, and you have the basic component for any outfit. Style them right, and no one will notice when you have been wearing the same pair of pants for five days straight. 

 

Streamlined sneakers 

 

Comfort come first for the Danish woman. And when you’re biking around the city, a pair of sneakers feels like the safe choice. The chunky ‘dad’ sneakers trend seems to have passed, leaving room for the more streamlined, minimal sneakers that will complement any style. Opt for a pair of Veja, where style and sustainability aren’t compromised, or a pair of tennis-inspired Acne Studios kicks.

 

Maxi dress 

 

A maxi dress casually paired with sneakers have become the look synonymous with Danish women. And you can’t mention this style, without mentioning Danish power brand Ganni, who has all the cool kids running down the streets season after season in its newest style and print. This season the print is gingham checks. Another wardrobe classic made to be worn over and over again. 

 

All products are available on the 2nd floor in ILLUM.
