We all have those days when we feel nothing in our wardrobe works. Or perhaps it's an invitation to an event that sends you in to panic because you don't think you have anything to wear. But if you have some failsafe items in your wardrobe that are in tune with your personal style, you will always have something to wear.
There is nothing worse than attending an event or important meeting and feeling like you aren't dressed appropriately. Equally if you rush out and buy something at short notice it's likely that it might not really be "you" and you will feel uncomfortable all day.
So what is the key to getting this right and discovering what those failsafe pieces and outfits are?

There are only 11 pieces to pack, plus accessories to give you more than 2 weeks of outfits. For this smart casual capsule, I have included pieces that can be dressed up for evenings or worn more casually during the day.

I have included linen and silk pieces (roll when packing to minimise creasing) to stay cool in, but also to add a touch of luxury. When you are packing light, remember to add accessories so that you can change the looks. Pack your jewellery into one of the handbags to save space. With this capsule I have only included 2 pairs of shoes, but if you want to add another pair you can wear them to travel. For your travel outfit choose pieces that tone with the capsule and you can create...
