Summer Style

Six essentials for building
a capsule wardrobe

Discover the art of streamlined style with our guide to the wardrobe staples that redefine ease. From premium basics to timeless tailoring, our six-piece capsule wardrobe is designed to inspire you well beyond the current season. Because sometimes, the most enduring statements come from the simplest choices.

Neutral tones are key to achieving effortless cohesion in your capsule wardrobe.

What Is A Capsule Wardrobe?

The capsule wardrobe concept centres around a select number of high-quality, versatile items of clothing. These pieces are carefully chosen to mix and match, adapting seamlessly to different occasions and seasons.

The end goal of a capsule wardrobe is not just minimalism but a strategic curation, where each item becomes a pivotal player in creating multiple outfit combinations. Paring down to the essentials, even temporarily, can shine a light on the silhouettes, fabrics, colours and accessories you naturally gravitate toward. It’s a useful exercise in stretching both your creativity and the life of your trusted garments.

Summer Capsule Wardrobe Essentials

The essence of a capsule wardrobe lies in its ability to simplify and amplify, offering a refined collection that proves less is truly more. For this capsule, we chose a mix of casual and tailored garments, defined by a neutral palette and our signature natural fibres. From the cotton day dress to breezy linen pants and the perfect summer shirt, these foundational pieces serve as the ultimate starters for your capsule wardrobe.

01. The Cotton T-Shirt

We take pride in selecting the highest-grade cottons for our T-shirts, from long-staple pima and Australian cottons to organic cottons. When building your wardrobe, consider the versatility of T-shirts for your lifestyle. The classic crew-neck is a reliable choice for daily wear and layering, while a V-neck lends relaxed polish to an office or casual evening look. No matter the season, you’ll always reach for these quality wardrobe basics.

02. The Linen Shirt

At Trenery, we consider the linen shirt a key staple in every wardrobe. Woven with French flax, this classic shirt feels luxurious from the first wear, becoming softer over time. A neat fit and curved hem allow for easy styling, tucked into skirts or styled loose and airy with linen shorts. For a relaxed look, leave your collar open and sleeves lightly cuffed, embracing the fabric’s natural drape and softness.

03. The Boyfriend Jean

While relaxed denim is without doubt a year-round staple, you’d have to agree the pleasingly loose proportions align best with summer’s carefree mood. The boyfriend jean is one of Trenery’s most popular denim styles, designed with a mid-rise and gently tapered hem to create a perfectly eased silhouette. Look for clean, solid washes in white or indigo, which give even most the casual jeans a tailored, trouser-like feel.

04. The Day Dress

A summer essential, the cotton shirt dress effortlessly transitions from a weekend stroll at the farmer’s market to a busy day in the office. Keep styling minimal, allowing the clean lines and gentle structure of the dress to steal focus. Whether paired with flats for an elegant daytime look or with heels for an event, this dress will remain a cornerstone in your wardrobe for years to come.

05. The Classic Blazer

A well-crafted navy linen blazer is a timeless piece that, once introduced, never needs to leave. Opt for a neat silhouette, coupled with a touch of stretch, to ensure a flattering fit and comfortable movement. As the seasons change, don’t store it away. Instead, bring it into your autumn rotation, pairing the blazer with fine knitwear, dresses and boots. Simple, versatile, and forever in style.

06. The Easy Pants

Crafted from premium linen with a partial stretch waist, these pants offer comfort and luxury in one. The pull-on trouser design pairs well with a neatly tucked top or blouse to highlight the waist, simply accessorised with a leather belt and sandals. As cooler days arrive, add a linen blazer to transform your look into a chic, deconstructed summer suit. Rest assured, a beautiful—and practical—pair of linen pants is an investment you won’t regret.
