WHAT IS A CAPSULE WARDROBE?
A capsule wardrobe is a small collection of wardrobe staple pieces, paired with a few seasonal pieces, that are interchangeable to create several outfits. With a capsule wardrobe like this from Penny Pincher Fashion, you can have pre-planned outfit inspiration for the season. With a good foundation of wardrobe staples, you should not need to purchase all pieces in the capsule, as some of the items are wardrobe staples that may be similar to items already in your closet!
Be sure to check out this post on my blog where I cover wardrobe staples. This will set the foundation for your seasonal capsule wardrobe!
WHAT ITEMS DO YOU NEED FOR A SUMMER CAPSULE WARDROBE?
KNOW YOUR LIFESTYLE
The items you’ll need depend on your typical daily routine and lifestyle. This guide is primarily for casual chic style. The casual capsule wardrobe in this post can be dressed up for a night out or dressed down for a day at home. The patterned blouse for example, easily elevates any outfit but also pairs well with sneakers and jean shorts.
THE PIECES OF THE SUMMER CAPSULE WARDROBE 2023
In terms of numbers for a casual capsule wardrobe, I include 13 tops that can be rotated easily.
A few pairs of versatile shorts go a long way and they’re something you never tire of. In total, this capsule has 7 bottoms and 2 dresses.
Most casual capsule wardrobe collections have a few basic shoes. This capsule has six. Sandals and sneakers are my favorite options for summer, though you can incorporate what works best for your lifestyle.
KEYS TO A GREAT CAPSULE
There are three characteristics that are paramount to a fantastic capsule wardrobe. Color, quality, and cohesiveness.
One of the most important aspects of a capsule wardrobe is the color palette.
For this capsule, I use a neutral color palette with pops of green and a fun printed top. In terms of quality, when you focus on buying just one quality piece, it will reduce the rate at which it will need replaced. Therefore, you will be able to reincorporate a piece, year after year, into your capsule wardrobe. Finally, capsule items should all mix and match well into several outfits. At minimum, each item included in a capsule should be incorporated into at least 6 outfits within the capsule.
