My Spring/Summer Capsule Wardrobe is here! I had hoped to publish this sooner, but surprisingly, piecing together a finalized S/S collection was more challenging than expected!
This was my first spring & summer focusing on capsule pieces (you can read more about my first capsule wardrobe I created earlier this year in this post), so it took me some time to narrow down and really think about classic and versatile pieces for these seasons.
During these warmer months I feel like there are (typically) more outings and events that arise (i.e weddings, summer vacations, farmer’s market, beach trips, etc.) so I was really wanted to ensure I was selecting pieces that could be mixed and matched for almost all these experiences.
I didn’t have many of the basic pieces needed for my collection so I’ve been busy trying on a comparing different items over the last few weeks. The items that made the final cut are pieces I love and were the color, style and material I was looking for!
I would define my style as a mix between French minimalist & casual. While I love how chic and classic (yet simple!) the French minimalist style is, I’m also heavily influenced by the laid-back California style and most of the time I’m all about casual attire 🙂
When building your capsule collection, it is important to remember that you don’t have to have the same collection as anyone else! I think it’s important find the style(s) and color palette that fit you best to help you pick the pieces you love the most.
And of course I have many more items than what is shown below, but this is what I have found to be the ultimate foundation for my wardrobe. So many outfits can be created using these pieces and they are all pieces that will never go out of style! While I transitioned in new pieces & colors for S/S, I also have some pieces from my year-round capsule wardrobe [t-shirts, silk shirts, white jeans, trench coat, denim jacket, leather jacket, purses and sneakers].
Below are my selects along with additional recommendations (more colors/material options) and a few budget-friendly alternatives to the staple pieces. I will also be doing many, many styling upcoming posts on how to mix and match these pieces 🙂
