Best Capsule Wardrobe Brands of 2024

Capsule wardrobes have gained popularity over the years as many people are now striving to become increasingly mindful consumers with a smaller, more purposeful wardrobe. 

Sustainability, conscious consumerism, and minimal fashion trends have made capsule wardrobes “the new black”. Because of this, there are now many brands that offer timeless basics or have capsules as part of their collections.

I have been using capsule wardrobes for several years now! As I’ve slowly built my own capsules, I’ve discovered some of the best capsule wardrobe brands. And I’m sharing my list of favorites for 2024 with you.

These brands offer classic, minimal, high-quality pieces, with ethical and sustainable fashion in mind. So scroll down to discover my top picks for the best capsule wardrobe brands that will make finding your wardrobe essentials a total breeze!

Where are the best places to shop for capsule wardrobe clothes?

When it comes to creating a capsule wardrobe, you’ll want to shop with brands that offer a variety of timeless and versatile clothing. My favorite brands include:

  • Encircled
  • Everlane
  • Cuyana
  • Jenni Kayne
  • Quince
  • ABLE
  • Mango
  • COS
  • & Other Stories
  • Oak & Fort
  • H&M

…and a few more! I will cover all of these brands in detail below. 

1. Cuyana

shop bestsellers:

I love everything about this brand –  the stunning quality, classic design, and versatility are the hallmarks of capsule wardrobe brand Cuyana. The brand carries a great range of clothing along with a gorgeous collection of purses, totes, clutches, and travel bags.

I own the Double Loop Bag from Cuyana, and have written a review on the bag and the brand here.

With a mix of classic neutrals and calming seasonal color tones, Cuyana’s pieces are ideal for curating a timeless capsule. They also believe that time is the new luxury so fewer = better, and I couldn’t agree more.

Each piece is made thoughtfully, and the brand focuses on ethical conduct and environmental responsibility. If you ask me, this brand is definitely one worth checking out! 

2. Quince

shop bestsellers:

Quince has more recently become one of my all-time favorite brands. Especially for building a capsule wardrobe.

When it comes to pricing, Quince is one of the best on the list, in my opinion. The brand offers sustainably produced wardrobe essentials and capsule collections for surprisingly low prices. In short, if you want to build an affordable capsule wardrobe, Quince is not to be missed.

Some of the pieces I personally own include the oversized cashmere cardigan (seen on me above), the cashmere fisherman crewneck, and the leather pouch crossbody. I have no doubt that you could make an entire (affordable) capsule wardrobe with just Quince pieces in 2024!

3. Everlane

Another one of my favorite brands in 2024, when it comes to stylish, classic wardrobe essentials, is Everlane. This brand has pretty much reached icon status over the year and for good reason. The pieces are tried, tested, and true. 

From basic tops and luxurious knits to flattering denim, outerwear, and quality shoes and accessories, Everlane has it all.

I absolutely love the Barrel Pants from Everlane, which I included in my winter capsule wardrobe for 2024. And I also think that Everlane has the best t-shirts for capsule wardrobes too!

I also love Everlane’s commitment to transparency, sustainability, and ethical fashion. Win-win-win! If you love this brand, don’t miss my list of stores like Everlane

4. Jenni Kayne

This next brand is another one of my personal favorites, and you can definitely find many of their pieces in my capsule wardrobes!

Timeless meets luxury with style icon Jenni Kayne‘s fashion and home brand. If you have a healthy budget and want the best of the best, this is an old money fashion brand that I think is worth checking out in 2024. 

Each piece is made with quality fabric and craftsmanship, and it doesn’t go unnoticed. In fact, I love Jenni Kayne so much that I’ve done a thourough Jenni Kayne Review as well as a specific review of the Jenni Kayne cocoon cardigan.

With such a wide range of beautiful wardrobe staples, you can easily create a luxurious curated capsule wardrobe with Jenni Kayne that will last you years to come. 

5. Mango

shop bestsellers:

Another brand on my list with an excellent price point is Mango. While the brand carries all kinds of clothing with bright colors and busy patterns, they also have a Basics collection from which you can curate a great capsule wardrobe. 

I love finding simple t-shirts and jeans from Mango for my wardrobe, and find the prices to be very reasonable. In addition to the clothing, Mango also carries a great selection of shoes and accessories with a timeless appeal that I adore.

In terms of sustainability, Mango is committed to a circular economy, recycling, and reducing textile waste. 

6. H&M

shop bestsellers:

H&M has certainly made a name for itself in the fashion world since its humble beginnings as a single store in 1947! And while this brand manages to keep up with the trends, it also carries a fantastic selection of essential wardrobe pieces – and all for an affordable price!

One thing I love about H&M is how they are constantly making strides to create a more sustainable brand. From sourcing recycled and sustainable fabrics to partnering with ethical factories, this brand is always taking action towards becoming a more eco-friendly company. 

My favorite H&M pieces for my capsule wardrobes often come from the premium selections, like this stunning wool blend sweater (seen on me above)

7. Encircled

shop bestsellers:

Encircled is a Canadian-based capsule brand that ships worldwide. They create classy, comfortable, and versatile wardrobe staples that can take you from home to just about anywhere. And I love that Encircled offers individual pieces along with “kits” including the versatile basics kit, the workwear kit, and the carry-on kit

The brand also focuses on ethical production with clothing sewn by highly skilled, fairly paid workers located in North America. Additionally, all the fabrics used are thoughtfully chosen to meet high standards in wearability and sustainability.

8. COS

Next on my list of the best capsule wardrobe brands, is COS. A brand that is all about modern style that is designed to last.

They create minimal, classic pieces and have capsule wardrobe selections including their COS Icons collection. They also have an Essentials collection which can be the building blocks of your everyday wardrobe. 

I love that the brand also focuses on sustainability in three areas – products, people, and the planet. In my opinion, this brand is definitely one to watch (and invest in!) in 2024.

9. Aday

shop bestsellers:

Next, is Aday. This modern brand makes capsule wardrobe pieces that are cleverly designed to be as versatile as possible (a huge perk when creating a capsule wardrobe in my opinion!) The clothing is sustainably produced with innovative fabrics that are chosen for durability and longevity.

The brand believes that “surrounding ourselves with fewer, more sustainably and beautifully designed choices brings us clarity and satisfaction” and, I agree! Aday carries a great line of daily essentials, athleisure wear, and accessories, fit for all kinds of activities and occasions. 

10. Eileen Fisher

shop bestsellers:

One of the more luxury fashion brands on this list, Eileen Fisher is all about upscale simplicity. The brand showcases monthly 7-piece capsules that feature how to use seven pieces from their collection to create 15+ outfits, so I definitely recommend this brand when starting your capsule wardrobe (if it’s within your budget.) Plus, you can also buy individual items to create your capsule. 

And I love that Eileen Fisher uses high-quality materials and clothing that’s crafted with fair trade, organic fibers in iconic shapes.  Quality, timeless design…what more could you ask for?

11. & Other Stories

shop bestsellers:

Looking for capsule wardrobe pieces that are dreamy, cozy, and timeless? If so, the next brand on my list really needs to be on your radar!

& Other Stories has three design studios – in Paris, Stockholm, and Los Angeles – giving this brand a diverse and versatile aesthetic. Still, each piece from & Other Stories has a high-quality and classic look, making it perfect for anyone’s capsule wardrobe.

When it comes to sustainability, this brand has goals to have 100% more ethically sourced materials and 100% sustainable packaging by 2030. These sustainability goals make & Other Stories a brand that I feel good about supporting. 

12. Oak & Fort

shop bestsellers:

Last on my list of best capsule wardrobe brands, is Oak & Fort. As a lover of neutral palettes, Oak & Fort is another brand that I adore. Featuring muted tones and classic shades of brown, white, ecru, grey, and black, the brand has pieces that can work seamlessly together for any occasion. 

I also love the affordable accessories including my go-to tote bag and this cute woven handbag (seen above).

With everything from basics to layering pieces and casual to formal wear, Oak & Fort is a great place to find modern and minimal capsule pieces. And I can’t forget to mention that this brand truly cares about ethical production and proves it by focusing on ethical material sourcing, fair labor practices, and sustainable processes. 


More Capsule Wardrobe Brands

In case you needed even more great capsule wardrobe brands, I decided to add a few more honorable mentions to the list! 

13. ABLE While ABLE doesn’t offer specifically curated capsule collections, they do carry a wide range of neutral basics and effortless, versatile pieces. The brand is also women-owned and a big part of its mission is to invest in women in vulnerable communities. 

14. Vince Another brand worth noting, Vince is a California-based brand that is all about timeless luxury. The price point is high, so this brand is not for those on a tight budget. But, you get what you pay for. In short, quality, durable pieces, that last wear after wear, year after year. 

15. Tradlands This small-batch brand creates timeless pieces that work great for a neutral or colorful capsule wardrobe. They make simple designs using high-quality materials that last. 


Capsule Wardrobe FAQ:

If you are new to the concept of capsule wardrobes, you’ll be relieved to know you don’t have to create one in a single day. If you have questions, don’t stress because I am here to help! And I’ve answered some of the most common questions about capsule wardrobes below. 

Is a capsule wardrobe a good idea?

Absolutely! The beauty of a capsule wardrobe is that it can save you time (one of my favorite perks), reduce stress, and benefit your bank account. The idea behind a capsule wardrobe is that “less is more”. By reducing the clutter in your closet, you are left with pieces you love and are versatile enough to create a multitude of outfits. 

It will take you less time to get ready each day, and you’ll learn how to live with less. And, that means spending less in the long run. Y

Plus, you’ll no longer have a closet full of clothes and “nothing to wear”. If you ask me, there really isn’t a reason not to try it!

What is the perfect capsule wardrobe?

The perfect capsule wardrobe reflects your personal style, lifestyle, and daily needs. This might mean you have a closet with a great selection of business casual items to dress up or down. Or, it could look like a curated collection of jeans, t-shirts, and cozy knit sweaters.

The capsule for a young mom who works from home will look different than a single woman in the corporate world. Therefore, the “perfect” capsule hinges on your individual wardrobe needs.

From my experience, curating the best capsule wardrobe for your personal style and your lifestyle takes time, and the process shouldn’t be rushed! Instead, I suggest you take your time to declutter your closet, then slowly add high-quality pieces until you’ve achieved a capsule wardrobe that works for you.
