Mastering the art of building out a fool-proof capsule wardrobe is something I personally have yet to achieve. I am always getting distracted by the shiny new trends and must-have items to allow myself to really invest in the practical pieces that will truly shape my wardrobe for the season ahead. For that very reason, I reached out to five of my favorite fashion experts to get their guidance on the matter. I asked Tiffany Hsu, fashion buying director at MyTheresa, Natalie Kingham, global fashion officer at MatchesFashion, Libby Page, senior market editor at Net-a-Porter, Harriet Hawksworth, editor in chief at Farfetch, and Caroline Maguire, fashion director at Shopbop, to list the five items that they plan on investing in this year. 

Considering the fact that these women play a very direct role in making sure your favorite shopping destinations are curated with the best of the best, it only makes sense that each of their selections is undeniably perfect. From the perfect black blazer to the accessories that are sure to elevate absolutely any outfit, it is my honor to present to you the dream 2021 capsule wardrobes of some of our industry’s favorite experts. If you’ve ever desired to know what industry insiders are actually buying, consider this your ultimate sneak peek.
