Summer is finally here! I’ve been enjoying the amazing weather we’ve been having lately.
My summer 2023 capsule follows pretty closely to last year’s capsule, with only a few changes/additions [changing up a few pieces always helps mix things up a bit and keep your capsule feeling current!]. Because I live in California, my overall style falls pretty casual with some elevated pieces.
What Is A Capsule Wardrobe?
A capsule wardrobe consists of a few essential items that don’t go out of style and can be augmented with seasonal pieces. Every capsule collection varies in size, but it is usually between 20-40 pieces that you wear for a season until you transition in new pieces to wear for the next season, and repeat.
- Don’t get stuck on the number of pieces you have in your collection! It’s not so much about the number of items you have as much as it’s about building a collection that works for YOU.
- This collection does not include everything in my wardrobe or everything I wear in a season. These are my essential pieces that allow me to easily style just about any outfit during the season, and the pieces that are on repeat probably 90% of the time.
- Everyone’s style is different so your collection doesn’t have to look like just like mine [or anyone else’s]! I hope these posts are a source of inspiration but you do not need to feel like you have to have the same items to create your own wardrobe. For a capsule wardrobe to truly work for you, it’s important to stick with pieces that YOU love and fit your lifestyle, location and body type.
BENEFITS OF A CAPSULE WARDROBE:
- Minimizes and declutters your closet
- Saves money in the long run [no throwing out clothes constantly to stay up with the ever-changing trends]
- Helps you effortlessly style outfits [versatile pieces makes it easy to pair everything together!]
- Reduces the time you spend focusing on shopping, which allows you to increase the time you spend on other things!
- And one of the most important factors [for me at least!]–It’s sustainable!
