Effortless style: a Kate Moss-Inspired Capsule Wardrobe
Kate Moss’ status as a fashion icon is inarguable. She has been seen on every major runway for over 30 years, and has been an international muse over the years. Whilst she is famed for this catwalk style, Kate Moss’s personal wardrobe is just as legendary.
Not everyone can match the style of a famed model, but you can take inspiration from her off-duty clothing. Whether she was seen walking around London in classic jeans and well-tailored blazer, or dressed in a slip dress that clings to your curves; Kate Moss would always ooze style and grace.
Here is our guide to dressing like the blonde icon.
A tailored blazer
A tailored jacket is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can own. It will work for any occasion, day or night. Keeping things classic with a jet-black jacket, like the one Kate Moss is wearing above; and you can then elevate the jeans or dress that you are wearing.
A collection of Slip dresses

A wardrobe mainstay for Kate since the ’90s, the slip dress has the undisputed power to bring life to any party. They are easy to put on in a rush, allow for movement and can be worn to a party or just out shopping.
Whether you choose to get one which is figure-hugging or floaty, the key to focus on is the fabric. The slinkier and more comfortable the better.
A black slip dress, short or long; can be worn as the main attraction or be complemented by wearing a hoodie or shirt over the top of it.
Or if black doesn’t appeal to you, you can also wear something like this stunning blue slip dress that Allison Ho is modelling here.
Whilst dresses and skirts are always fun to wear, sometimes you want to cut a more serious character; so, a pair of tailored trousers and a chic blouse is a brilliant option.
Here you can see Kate pulling off this look, matched with a pair of interesting heels.
The everyday staple; a good pair of jeans
You probably own these already; but if you think they are boring, think again. Kate’s look here is testament to the fact that there’s nothing like the right pair of jeans to complete a look.
You can style up your favourite pair of jeans, or if you are wanting to get a new pair you can opt for a straight-leg pair like Kate wears or, for the slightly more adventurous, a boot-cut set of jeans to match the classic image of an off-duty model.
Whilst some might argue that the fedora is a dated choice of headwear, there is nothing better than a flamboyant piece of headwear. Kate wears one perfectly here.
Kate Moss is a fashion icon, but the superstar model might feel like a rather distant or impractical person to model your wardrobe from. A fictional alternative is the beloved, cut throat girlboss Shiv Roy from Succession.
