Summer Capsule Wardrobe
Here is a breakdown by category of my favorite capsule wardrobe pieces for summer.
Tops / Summer Layering
Bodysuits // I can’t get enough of the bodysuits for summer and the Skims bodysuit have the most amazing color palette for ever skin type. The # of outfit ideas with this bodysuit are endless and can be mix and matched various ways. It would be beautiful with a silk skirt as well!
Eyelet Top // A feminine top is always in every capsule wardrobe I create and this square neck puff sleeve will take you into fall and well as for spring. It’s the perfect short sleeve feminine pieces in your capsule wardrobe. If you want something more classic, opt for a short sleeve button down shirt as it is timeless as well.
Lightweight Sweater // If you are like me and always cold while traveling or insides, a long sleeve lightweight sweater is a must and the perfect piece for you summer capsule and mixed and matched throughout the entire year!
Blazers // A blazer is a must have piece throughout the entire year. If you check my instagram, you can see that I styled it with biker shorts the other day. For workwear it’s the perfect long sleeve summer layer for your business meetings or styled with jeans for a casual friday. My favorite Amazon Blazer is this one and comes in black, white and tan.
Denim Jacket // Perfect for travel or layering over your shoulder for your summer outfit on a chilly night. I always have to have long sleeves on the plane!
Dresses are definitely my all time favorite in my summer capsule wardrobe. From a mini dress to a maxi dress these are a must haves in your capsule wardrobe and can be worn dressy or casual with white sneakers. Which ever color you choose, these are my picks your need in your closet.
- Maxi Dress
- Midi Dress
- Mini Dress
- Knit Dress
- A Floral Dress
Bottoms: Skirts / Shorts / Pants
I live in my jean shorts for summer, so if I had to pick one investment piece, the AGOLDE jeans short would be it.
A great skirt is a must for summer. I love styling it with bodysuits or and an easy sandal, a sneaker, or to cover my bum over my black one piece.
Rayban Sunglasses / YSL Clutch / Amazon Black Celine Dupes / Gucci Rubber Slides / Saint Laurent Tote / another tote / TAN braided Sandal / (another option under $100) / Golden Goose Sneakers / Studded Brown Sandals (also comes in black and cream) / Cream Braided Heel
Shoes can be my weakness for a capsule wardrobe. Everyone has a weakness right? Again, like the dresses I opt for a neutral assortment (any color) in these summer capsule wardrobe pieces.
My bag mood changes drastically in the summer. For my summer capsule wardrobe I want to bag. A summer tote and something I can have thats summery for date or girls night. The tote to carry all my beach or pool accessories as well as a little woven # for date night. But no matter what season I always have my YSL wallet so it makes transferring things over quickly.
I typically keep my accessories simple during the summer especially when I comes to jewelry. Minimal is key. However, the one thing I can’t go without is my summer hats. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites including this one cap from Amazon. It’s woven and the perfect addition to the your summer capsule.
Swimwear & Coverups
Black One Piece Swimsuit / Black Cover up (also comes in white) / Lack of Color Fedora / (visor option) Snakeskin Sandals / Woven Bag / Hunza G One Piece Swimsuit / Pearl Slides / Tan Python Freedom Moses Slides / Tan Dot Bikini
When it comes to swimwear, a belted one pieced is a must for me. I always do cream and black. This year I opted for a muted floral bikini for a pop and it was the perfect addition to my summer capsule wardrobe. For coverup, I wear my jean shorts or skirts or even layer on of my dresses. If you want a coverup, my favorite sarong from Amazon is this for $18 and my favorite coverup is this one!
How to Build a Summer Capsule Wardrobe
If you are just getting starting in curating a capsule wardrobe, I wanted to share some tips so you have for future reference.
1. The most important part of creating a caspsule wardrobe is building a base.
I focus on quality classic pieces that I will wear for years to come.
2. Choose a color palette.
I always stick to more neutral color but if you love color add in more subdued blues or pinks that are still classic.
3. Every wardrobe deserves some pops of color.
Just do not go overboard and choose those wisely, because most of these pieces will be more trendy and will not go out of style. For pieces like this, I grab them at H&M, Mango, Zara and as well as my favorite under $100 brands from Shopbop and Nordstrom.
4. Plan Your Outfits
Planning is everything in life and that includes your wardrobe. When you feel more organized everything falls into place.
I hope you enjoyed this summer capsule wardrobe. Its a combination of minimalist approach with some feminine and edgy details. If you’d like more outfit ideas with these pieces leave a comment below and I will expand on this blog post more and give you more exclusive content!
