How to create the perfect Spring capsule

With the new season ahead, it's time to Spring clean my wardrobe.

Step 1: I get rid of anything that I haven't worn in the past 12 months. If I haven't worn a piece in a year, there is a good chance I will never wear it again.
Step 2: I check my basics. My budget can only afford so many pieces per month, so now I need to choose carefully what to invest in.

No need to buy that fancy dress for a wedding happening in 6 months, I will have changed my mind 10 times by then! I need pieces that I can wear now, either as they are or layered and that I know will follow me all season.

The keyword here is versatile, which translates in Volange language as "dress up" and "dress down".

In my Spring essentials, I will include:


My very first item is a pair of denim. I live in my jeans, if I had to choose one piece, that would be it. Denims are great as you can wear them with any shoes from slides to pumps and any tops from white T to fancy blouse.

I also need a fresh pair of white pants. Whether they are chinos, jeans or pants, the white bottoms are a must, especially when the sun shows up. It is so nice to pair your crisp white pants with the right top depending on the occasion.


The white t-shirt: a must have! It is so versatile that it will work with every bottom and every style: beach relax with cut-off jeans, smart casual with black tailored pants, lunch vibe paired with a floral skirt...

The T-shirts with stripes: Not only do they look good but again, they instantly go from smart to trendy once paired with the right bottom.

The neutral camisole: black, white or both. I will layer it with my woolens and as the temp goes up, I will wear it as it is. It is also my go-to piece when I need to dress up but don't feel like it.

The new white shirt: I know I already have a few of them, but having that fresh crisp white one will make me feel like a million dollars in my next meeting.


Because it's still a bit fresh, I need to layer for now. My white cardigan is perfect for that, I can use it indoor/outdoor and it will go well with everything I have in my capsule.


I cant go past a new pair of white Veja which will relax any of my looks whilst my black pumps will transform the same looks into instant chic.


A black cross-body is a must have. It obviously works with everything above and everything else not mentioned here. If you dont already have one, what are you waiting for?

Some simple chain necklaces and dainty earrings will complete this effortlessly-put-together femine-stylish-relaxed assemblage.
