What is a capsule wardrobe?

If you haven’t heard of a capsule wardrobe, it’s a pretty simple concept. It’s a wardrobe that has a certain number of versatile pieces you can repurpose into multiple outfits. These pieces tend to be more classic, basic, and easily wearable. The goal is to create different looks by styling these pieces in differing ways. It’s also a great way to get creative and make the most of the pieces you have in your closet.

The beauty about a capsule wardrobe is that you make the rules. You get to pick the colors, the fabrics, and all of the pieces you’d like to wear this season. You can adjust these pieces to match the look and style that makes you look and feel good.

Start with what you already have

Before you start shopping for new clothes, look through what you have in your closet already. If you need to even make a spring/summer clean out, do it. This will give you an idea of what’s missing and what you need to shop for. When it comes to a capsule wardrobe, what you need really depends on your lifestyle and what you like. Are you a neutrals kinda gal? Bold, statement colors? More casual? Corporate/professional? Think about the types of outfits within your lifestyle you’ll be wearing more of, look through your closet and make a list of what you have, and then start planning to shop for things you’re missing.

What’s your style? The easiest way to figure this out is by looking for inspiration. When you’re on Pinterest, Instagram, or Tiktok, what style are you drawn to? What colors and accessories do you love? This is a great starting point on figuring out which style you like, and what to keep in your closet to get that look. If you’re looking for a summer wardrobe that is the classic, neutral look, these are the pieces to look out for!
