The Complete Capsule: 9 Essentials to Carry You Through Till Autumn

Well, summer has well and truly arrived along with the unpredictable British weather. While we're spending more time outdoors now, we still need some staples that will make sense for our prolonged-time indoors too. 

So what are we wearing now and into Autumn 2020? For us, whether we're inside or outside, it will be a capsule consisting of versatile, wear-with-everything staples. From polo tops and patterned skirts to floral dresses and chunky sandals, this summer, we'll be investing in not only items that can easily be mixed and matched but also items that will remain on high rotation in our closets for seasons to come.

Puff-sleeve tops, which have been popular throughout the year, will continue their reign in our wardrobes. Though, seasonal iterations will feature crisp white cotton and even statement collars. Meanwhile, minimalist '90s-style dresses have made a comeback, complete with A-line silhouettes, square necklines and thin straps. As far as footwear is concerned, influencers are proving thong sandals are here to stay, and while on the comfier side, chunky flats will become our dependable daily option.
