Have you heard of the latest concept in minimalist fashion? 

Capsule wardrobes are collections of tops, bottoms and shoes which can be used interchangeably to create numerous different outfits. Made up of staples in fashion and style such as a simple shirt and black jeans, capsule wardrobes allow you to easily mix and match these in any number of ways to almost guarantee a timeless look.

Now, we all know that shoes are the foundation of any and every look – making them the most important component in your capsule wardrobe. That’s why we’ve put together some of our best shoes to base your wardrobe on, from winter to summer and back again, along with our recommendations for the best ways to style them.
