To start off your wardrobe, you’ll need a couple tops that can pair with almost anything. Colors such as white, beige, and black can be worn with items in nearly any color, which makes these shades perfect for your summer capsule. If you want to keep cool, opt for tank tops and classic tees. Don’t hesitate to mix and match different styles to create a well-rounded selection.
2 Button Down Shirts
You can’t go wrong with adding a couple button down shirts to your capsule wardrobe! These blouses can elevate your look by adding elements of professionalism and sophistication. When selecting your button downs, a lightweight fabric, such as linen, will help keep you cool. If you want to be bold, choose a bright color aligned with summer trends! Classic neutrals, white, and black are also great and versatile for pairing with other pieces.
1 Blazer or Cardigan
Whether you prefer wearing a cardigan or blazer, having one of the two can polish your look. A cardigan is a great choice for chilly indoor temperatures or late-night walks on the beach! If you are going to be in and out of work meetings, a linen blazer is the way to go! A blazer in a creme, sand, or light gray color will guarantee that it can be paired with most of the pieces in your wardrobe!
You will also need 3 bottoms for your summer capsule. It is a good idea to have a pair of jeans or trousers in your wardrobe. If you’re looking for something lightweight, try a linen beach trouser! These trousers are breathable and great for dressing up or dressing down. A pair of shorts in white or black will be perfect for hot days! Add jean shorts for a casual option!
Your capsule wardrobe will be set with two summer dresses! If you like the trendy regencycore style, a dress with puffy, romantic sleeves in an elegant powder blue color is a perfect choice for date nights or upscale events! Maxi dresses are also very popular right now, making it a great possibility as well. Tee shirt dresses are also in!
