Capsule Wardrobe: Flannel & Tweed

October 21st, 2016

Here at Articles of Style, we don’t want you to buy more clothes. We want you to buy the right clothes, so you can look great and get the most out of your investments. A smart wardrobe is one that is built around versatility and longevity. Ideally, the majority of the pieces can be mixed-and-matched to create different outfits for different occasions.

To illustrate this concept, here’s a new installment of our “Capsule Wardrobe” series, where we give an example of a curated wardrobe built around, what else, a tailored suit in a seasonal fabric. Today we highlight the Triple Chalkstripe Windowpane suit from our FW16 Collection.

Here are 10 pieces (plus a few universal accessories) that make 5 stylish outfits for 5 different occasions.

    Is that a bullhide belt on the jeans? Any idea where that’s from?

    Pretty spot on capsule

    Curious on where the Blue Donegal Sweater is from (can’t see any label and there’s no credit given)? It is something I would definitely incorporate into my wardrobe…

      It’s a vintage piece I picked up a couple years back, sorry I can’t help with the brand.

        That was what I had feared… I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for something similar…
