The Ultimate Capsule Wardrobe, According to a Fashion Editor

If anyone is well versed in the nuances of building a capsule wardrobe, it's the fashion editors at MyDomaine's sister site Who What Wear. They've shared exactly how to build one and what it looks like in action. They've even tapped a psychologist to weigh in on the link between paring back possessions and overall happiness. As it turns out, the fewer options we give ourselves when getting dressed each morning, the more satisfied we're likely to be throughout the day.

But for all the discussions we've had, the site's editors thought it was finally time to compile an ultimate Who What Wear "starter pack." The capsule wardrobe essentials ahead are the versatile closet basics you know and love. From the perfect white T-shirt to the pair of jeans you'll want to wear every single day, these 17 classic items belong in every closet.
