Amal’s staple styling of a white high-neck blouse paired with pinstripe trousers and blazer is perfect proof that something simple and refined can work wonder day-to-day.
Angelina opts only for black, navy, grey and white – taking the stress of colour co-ordination out of her daily routine.

As well as these 3 big names, of course Steve Jobs iconic capsule wardrobe has to come into play… perhaps the most famous example there is, Apple founder Steve Jobs was nigh-on-never seen without his staple black turtleneck. Steve’s decision to save his decision-making and idea-generating efforts for the world of technology may well have revolutionised the way we all live.
