It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of simplicity. With regard to fashion, capsule wardrobing helps me achieve that goal. If you’ve been curious about testing out a capsule wardrobe but don’t know where to start, I’m sharing three capsule wardrobe brands that should be on your radar. All three offer small, pre-curated capsules that let you test out the capsule premise with pieces that are proven to be versatile and work well together.

So, have you ever written a blog post in advance and then one week before it’s scheduled to go live, receive an email from one of the companies featured stating that they’re going out of business? Well, that’s precisely what happened with this post. See part of the email from VETTA below.
I considered removing them from the post but they are still a company whose quality and versatility I believe in. Therefore, I’ve decided to leave them in the post. I hope you’ll still be able to find something you love! Sign up here to be among the first to know when items are reduced.
Sale items are FINAL SALE however, as of this update, full-price merchandise can be returned within 14 days. Please read the details carefully.
VETTA is my favorite of the three capsule wardrobe brands highlighted today! They have twelve different pre-made capsules to match different style preferences (mod, glam, edgy, casual) and you can also mix and match between capsules.
The really cool thing about VETTA is that so many of their clothing pieces are designed to be worn in multiple ways. You may recall my post featuring their apron jumpsuit. For instance, the convertible chunky sweater can be worn as a cardigan, as a crew neck and buttoned up the back, or as a turtleneck (which detaches).
Their blazer dress has detachable sleeves so you can wear it as either a sleeved or sleeveless dress, a vest, or open over jeans as a long blazer.
Many of VETTAs skirts are reversible and have adjustable lengths or other conversions. The level of ingenuity is just tremendous and the quality of their products is excellent.
Aday offers individual pieces for sale as well as three pre-made capsules: one for travel, one for professional looks, and one seasonal. For those of you that think having a capsule means you’ll be forced to wear nothing but black, navy, grey or white, Aday is here to prove you wrong. Current seasonal colors include an array of autumnal tones as well as a couple of blues!
As with VETTA, several pieces can be worn in multiple ways. The pants can be worn with or without the belt, changing up the look. The dress can be worn with the buttons in front or back and with or without the belt in both instances. The wrap blouse can be tied or snapped in a variety of manners.
Pareto is the newest company on today’s list and runs a bit more casual than either VETTA or Aday. They currently offer six core pieces and three pre-bundled options. The collection is made of pre-shrunk cotton and the price point is significantly lower than the other two brands. The romper shown below would make for a fantastic winter getaway piece!
Not yet to market but coming soon is bscly! I’ll be paying close attention to see what they offer once they officially launch.
