The key to a stylish and sustainable wardrobe is careful and considered investment. Follow Livia Firth’s #30wears rule; if you won’t wear it 30 times, don’t get it! Now for wedding outfits, 30 wears may seem like a lot. Say you went to 3 weddings a year, that’s 10 years of weddings. So am I telling you to make sure you stay the same dress size for 10 years and wear the same outfit to every wedding you go to? No, of course not!

Whether you’re starting a new job or want to start the new year with a smarter style, ensuring you have a capsule workwear wardrobe is essential for minimising the morning ‘what do I wear?!’ stress.
