5 must have autumn winter wardrobe essentials the UNDONE

Tired of staring at your closet and feeling like you’ve got nothing to wear? Worry not because we've got you covered with a hitlist of five autumn/winter essentials guaranteed to make getting dressed a whole lot easier. 

From classic jeans to a timeless trench, these versatile wardrobe essentials form the basis of a minimalist winter capsule wardrobe. In other words, they’ll serve as the foundation for your cold-weather outfits, dressing up or down depending on the occasion. Investing in these high-quality staples will save you time and money, as you won't need to replace them often. So, whether you're starting from scratch or just looking to add a few key pieces to your closet, here are the five non-negotiable items that every minimalist should own.

The classic denim jeans

Classic denim jeans are a wardrobe must-have – they can be styled in so many different ways. Versatile enough to be worn year-round but particularly useful during the cooler months, they can be dressed up by pairing with a blouse and heels or made casual with a t-shirt and sneakers. Don't forget, they also complement cosy knits and sweaters perfectly. For a figure-flattering fit, we recommend a high-rise, straight-leg style that will elongate your legs and look good with everything from ankle boots to heels.
