The 7115 Spring Starter Kit

People are always surprised by how little I have in my wardrobe, especially considering my line of work. It would be a lie if I said I only own 10 things in my wardrobe. However, it is true that I usually only wear a handful of pieces on rotation at a time. Most are basics, things that are easy for me to mix and match. Sometimes I introduce a statement piece or pop of color to change things up. But overall, throughout the years I've found that I can get away with cycling through just roughly 6-10 pieces for a whole season. 

I get asked a lot about how to know what to pick in order to stretch out so little items for a whole season. I decided to put together a quick and easy guide on what 7115 wardrobe essentials can carry you through this spring/summer. I pared it back to just 6 styles: 

  • 1 top
  • 2 bottoms
  • 1 short jacket
  • 1 long jacket
  • 1 dress
  • Optional: 1 T-Shirt 

Every piece I picked here is meant to make your life easier. All items work in harmony in terms of color, proportion, and functions.

THE TOP: SIGNATURE DOLMAN SHIRT

The perfect top for a minimal wardrobe. It can be worn cropped (aka tucked in) or long. Right away, you've got two proportions covered which allows you to pair it with a range of bottoms - from high to mid to low rise.

You can also wear it closed or open and unbuttoned over a tank/tee. Just like that it takes on the role of being a light jacket too. 


THE BOTTOM: PLEATED SKATE TROUSER 

White bottoms. I love wearing white in any season. White bottoms in particular are versatile base because they're incredibly easy to style. They match a range of different colors. And it is refreshing!

I love how crisp and fresh the material is with the Pleated Skate Trouser. It brings me joy wearing it! 

THE BOTTOM: SIGNATURE RELAXED TAPERING TROUSER

This is the complete opposite with the white Pleated Skate Trouser, but equally versatile. The Relaxed Tapering Trouser are a comfy version of a "proper" trouser. We worked and re-worked this design over the years to create a pair of high-waisted with the perfect amount of taper. 

THE JACKET: SIGNATURE LINEN SUMO JACKET


Any 7115 short jacket would do to be honest, but I just like how the deep pockets on the Sumo Jacket work into my lifestyle. And of course, if I'm only allowing myself one short jacket for a whole season, black would be the most practical color in this case.



THE LONG JACKET: SPRING LAPEL OVERCOAT

Since my short jacket pick is black, I would go with a lighter tone on my other piece of outerwear. Balance it out a bit. I also think that a longer jacket in a lighter tone looks less heavy in the warmer months.

THE DRESS: SIGNATURE RAW SILK MAXI SHIRTDRESS

Last but not least, it's always a safe choice with the perfect all year round shirtdress. This Raw Silk edition of our Signature Maxi Shirtdress comes in my favorite color, olive. If you are not a fan of a collar or a button down dress, our Signature T-Shirt Reversible Maxi would fill the same gap in the wardrobe and it's just as comfortable! 



THE INSIDER TIPS 
  1. A good old simple t-shirt can come in handy. I stole mine from my husband, Richard. You will be surprised how well it can style with your favourite bottoms.
  2. A $28 dollar Carry-All Bag can bring so much life to a simple outfit. It's an easy way to bring depth into the looks without breaking the bank.
  3. If you have been following our feed, you would've notice, I wear one pair of shoes per season..or even per year. I strongly recommend it, especially if you wanna spend less time dressing up in the morning, it keeps things straightforward for me.
