Capsule wardrobes are a huge trend right now and I can totally see why! It is so nice to have things in your closet that you can constantly rely on. Everyone needs pieces that you can mix and match to create entirely new outfits. Many times I see these wardrobes and they are filled with neutral pieces. Which makes sense because neutrals go with so much more! However, I love bright colors, especially for spring so here is my take on 12 pieces to create a spring capsule wardrobe.
One // A bright-colored blouse
I think the key to creating any capsule wardrobe is choosing a color palette that you love. I am drawn to pink and blues therefore I use those colors to buy special pieces to brighten up my closet. A beautiful blouse is a staple for any wardrobe because of how versatile it is! Wear it with white jeans and wedges for lunch with friends or with sneakers for running around town. Throw it on with a skirt and it becomes perfect for work! I discovered this purple blouse yesterday and fell in love! The color is so vivid and bright plus how darling are those ruffles?! The blue blouse shown below is so classic and comes in a ton of colors.
Two // A Textured Top
Fabric detail can make all the difference in creating a spring capsule wardrobe. I love a white eyelet top and this one is already in my shopping cart! It is sleeveless which makes it perfect for hot afternoons, but if you prefer full sleeves this top here is great too. Because there is so much detail in this shirt, you can easily wear it with white jeans creating a perfect monochromatic outfit.
Three // Maxi Dress
Who else loves a maxi dress?! I have to say that I am a huge fan of maxi dresses for many reasons. The first reason is that they cover my legs! They go great with sandals and a jean jacket or with a straw belt and wedges. This maxi dress is perfect and can be worn off the shoulder or on, giving you even more options! If you prefer straps, this is a great option as well.
Four // Denim Jacket
Last year, I finally bought a denim jacket. I kept remembering the Limited Too sparkly jean jacket that I used to wear in middle school. Those memories kept me from buying a classic staple. I love it and wear it all the time! I linked this oversized Madewell jacket, but there is a cheaper version here.
Five // Lightweight Sweater
Spring can still have incredibly chilly days or cold mornings that later turn miserably hot. Either way, you need a great lightweight sweater! This one has amazing reviews and comes in over 15 colors! I also linked a waffle knit sweater below and you will love as well.
Six // Basic Layering Tee
This one is pretty self-explanatory. There are so many ways to wear a t-shirt, especially once you find a style you like. I love the Madewell Whisper Tee. They hold their shape even after a ton of washes and last a long time!
Seven // Cami
If you haven’t jumped on the Express Downtown cami train, you need too! They have a classic look and come in a ton of colors. Cami’s are perfect for spring and provide a great layering piece. They can easily be dressed up with wedges and a skirt or worn with relaxed jeans and sandals.
Eight // White Jeans
This year I am making it my mission to find the perfect pair of white jeans! The possibilities of outfits are endless and are perfect for spring! In the past, my white jeans have always been too “heavy” for summer or they just haven’t fit right! I am eyeing these Madewell white jeans. I have them in other colors so I have high hopes for the white pair! These are less expensive though, and I like that they have a shorter inseam. I will keep you updated on this search!
Nine // Sunglasses
Sunglasses are the perfect accessory especially once the sun comes out! These are at a decent price point and I love the shape!
Ten // Straw Belt
You can wear a straw belt in so many different ways! I have even seen it paired with a bathing suit, which I am loving. Wear it with your maxi dress to give it more shape or with white jeans and a cami to make your outfit stand out. This one is under $15 and I’m obsessed with the buckle!
Eleven // Cute Wedges
Finding the perfect wedge can be hard, but I always say go with a neutral and a brand you already love and trust. I love the style of these tan leather wedges, but last year I wore a similar pair of Treasure and Bond wedges and they were SO comfy!
Twelve // White Sneakers
These sneakers have been on my wish list for quite some time now! Everyone needs a classic white sneaker in their closet and these are a timeless pair. I have a pink pair and love them, but I would definitely suggest ordering a half size down!
