As a personal wardrobe stylist, I believe that having a well-curated wardrobe capsule can make getting dressed easier and more enjoyable. With spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to create a capsule wardrobe that will take you from the office to the weekend and beyond. In this post, I’ll answer some common questions about spring capsule wardrobes and share my tips for building your own. If you’re not interested in reading on and just want to shop the capsule – you’re in luck. Here it is!
What do I need for a spring capsule wardrobe?
A spring capsule wardrobe should consist of versatile pieces that can be mixed and matched to create multiple outfits. Key items to include in your spring capsule wardrobe might include:
- Lightweight jackets or cardigans
- Classic white, black, and striped t-shirts / tanks
- Blouses or button-ups
- Jeans or cropped pants
- Printed or colorful skirts
- Dresses in lightweight fabrics (a sheath or slip dress will be the most versatile)
- Comfortable yet stylish shoes, such as sandals or loafers
How many items for a spring capsule wardrobe?
While the number of items in a spring capsule wardrobe will vary depending on personal preference and lifestyle, I recommend aiming for around 30 pieces. Our capsule is super versatile, at 21 pieces total and making over 70 outfit ideas. This should include a mix of tops, bottoms, dresses, and shoes that can be worn interchangeably.
