7 Neutral Colors to Add to Your Summer Capsule Wardrobe

Sharing 7 neutral colors that will instantly elevate your wardrobe this summer.


White is such a timeless and classic color, and it’s perfect for adding to your capsule wardrobe, especially in the summer. There’s something so fresh and versatile about white that makes it ideal for the season. Personally, I love opting for a chic white dresses because they’re so easy and fun to style. You can also add simple white pieces like trousers or a vest to create a timeless and elegant look that will never go out of style.


Blue is a really popular color that is trending right now for summer, and I’m absolutely loving it! Both navy blue and light blue are perfect for the season. From a navy striped sweater to a light blue button down, these shades of blue are versatile and stylish. I also love incorporating light blue accessories, like a bag or a pair of shoes, to complete my summer outfits with a pop of color.


If you want a warmer color for summer than white, cream is perfect. You can style it in a monochrome cream look or even pair it with white for a tonal look. You could even style a cream outfit with a pop of red for an on trend summer color combo. Overall, cream is a favorite of mine, not just for summer but year round. It’s versatile, elegant, and always in style.


Red is so on trend right now and it’s the perfect way to add a pop of color to your summer capsule wardrobe. It’s a great choice for accessories, like a bag or a pair of shoes. You can even add it as a chic statement dress to brighten up your look. Red works beautifully for a European vacation vibe or a dinner with friends.

Tan is the perfect way to add some extra warmth to your summer capsule wardrobe. I love going for tan trousers or a button down shirt for a versatile look. Or, if you’re heading to a beach vacation, a chic tan raffia bag is a great addition that I’m loving for summer.


Black pieces are always essentials for summer. Like a timeless black dress, a pair of classic trousers, or a chic tank top. Adding any of these to your summer capsule wardrobe is a great idea. They’re timeless and versatile, making them great for any occasion this season. Plus, they will last you for years to come, never going out of style.


Brown is another great color to add to your capsule wardrobe for summer, especially since it’s trending this season. I’m personally loving it in dresses, breezy button down tops, and shorts sets. It’s a stylish way to add a bit of color to your look while at the same time getting ready for the fall browns. These pieces can also be perfect for transitioning into the fall, making them versatile additions to your wardrobe.
