Henkaa Capsule Collection: The Calla

Henkaa Capsule Collection: The Henkaa Calla Convertible Dress is the perfect dress for work and for your minimalist capsule wardrobe. Take it from day to night in a pinch.


"I like this convertible dress a lot more than I originally thought I would. I just wore it as a long sleeve top to a work meeting yesterday and then switched to a halter tunic for dinner out with friends the same night. It’s a great piece to use if you want something versatile but not as complicated as the dresses with all the straps and ties to learn. Like dipping your toes into the convertistyle world." - Sydney Muse, Customer

"The Calla (right) is a piece I keep in my minimalist capsule wardrobe for the full 12 months of the year. In winter I wear it as a top with tights or jeans on its own or layered with my favourite cozy cardigans. In the summer I've worn it as a dress for formal events/date nights and as a skirt for a more casual look. I like that I can wear it with sleeves when I want the coverage and hide the sleeves when I don't! It's very comfortable and easy to wear - I can throw it on in the morning over pants and in 2 seconds flat I'm dressed and ready for the day ahead." - Sonia, Program Manager

Whether it's brunch with friends or soaking up the sun on the beach, I know I can rely on my Ivy." - Sam, Product Design & Development Lead


Henkaa Capsule Collection: Ivy Midi Convertible Dress worn on Julie, Henkaa's Business and Development Lead.

"The Ivy Midi Convertible Dress is my favourite go-to dress all year round! It's subdued and simple, yet can be paired with so many pieces in my wardrobe for literally any occasion - an aspiring minimalist's dream! I've worn it to many dinners, summer brunch dates, and always always always pack it for vacation. It barely takes up any space in my carry-on and it's so lightweight and comfy. It's perfect for a minimalist capsule wardrobe. I have it in about 5 different colours and am always looking for an excuse to get another one!" - Julie, Business Development Manager

 Henkaa Capsule Collection: The Blume

Henkaa Capsule Collection: Blume Dress perfect for a fashionista wanting a piece they can get creative with. This is a must-have for a spring/summer capsule wardrobe.

"This is a really fantastic dress. I bought 2 to wear on vacation and came home and bought 2 more. By far my favourite Henkaa style!" - Sharon Kelly


Henkaa Capsule Collection: Blume Convertible Dress is the perfect summer convertible dress, it can be styled as a top, dress and a cool pair of pants!

"When the warm weather rolls around the Blume is one of my go-to pieces because it’s so versatile! We all get stuck in that weekend dilemma where it’s a day at the park until 4 and then a friend calls and, surprise, it’s dinner out a nice restaurant at 5 (with no time to go home and change)! Enter the Blume in the romper style for your super casual day (I pair mine with a tube top or tank), and then re-tie the Blume in one of the many dress styles for the rest of your night out, tucking your tank top in your purse. Day to night, this dress literally does it all." - Kate, Customer Experience Lead & Graphic Designer

Henkaa Capsule Collection: Sakura Midi Dress, our bestselling infinity dress. Perfect to dress up or down and is a minimalist capsule wardrobe essential.

"The material is of great quality, very silky and doesn't wrinkle easily. I love the many style options you have with this dress, and with practice and through watching the videos on the website, they are fairly easy to figure out how to do. It is also a very flattering dress for women with curves. Great idea for a bridesmaid dress!" - Julia Bayford, Customer


Henkaa Capsule Collection: Sakura Midi Infinity Dress in Navy Blue, perfect to wear as a skirt or a dress. It can be styled in over 60 ways and makes the perfect minimalist capsule wardrobe dress.

"By now you probably know about the Henkaa Sakura infinity dress, it's our most popular dress and for good reason - it's super flattering, versatile and can be worn in over 60 ways! One of my favourite ways to wear the Sakura Midi is by wrapping it in a skirt style (wrap the straps around your waist), and then throwing a cropped sweater over top! Spring weather is unpredictable, take the sweater off and re-wrap in bra-friendly style and you have a perfect spring dress!" - Madeleine Social Media & Marketing Coordinator.
