How to Create the Perfect Summer Capsule Wardrobe
I absolutely love capsule wardrobes. Capsule wardrobes inspire me to go into my closet and create endless amounts of outfits based on what I already have. Creating a summer capsule wardrobe allows you to use classic basic items to create different outfits. This will give you several options on how to style outfits.
Capsule wardrobes are also great because you can easily transition your wardrobe from season to season. All you have to do is change out a few pieces and your set! Summer is my favorite season, and I have found that these wardrobe essentials are perfect for any occasion. This summer capsule wardrobe will help you create stylish and effortless outfits that will keep you in style all summer long.

As I previously stated, creating the perfect summer capsule wardrobe consists of items that you may already have in your closet. The items above are perfect for creating several different outfit options for summer. You want to build your capsule wardrobe with basic staple items that you can wear anytime, no matter the season.
For me, key basic items consist of a neutral body suit, basic shirts, denim jeans, and a neutral dress. These key pieces can be worn anytime. You can simply adjust your outfit to fit the season or occasion. To create a summer capsule, you can simply adjust your shoes, bottoms, and accessories to adjust to the hot weather.
Bodysuits have to be one of my favorite wardrobe essentials that I have in my closet. They can be worn with so many things and styled in several ways. Bodysuits are super easy to pair with any type of bottom to create an effortless chic look.
The best part about bodysuits is that they are amazing at contouring your body. Bodysuits can come in different sleeve lengths and necklines. No matter your preference or body type, you are bound to find the perfect bodysuit that is perfect for you.

What can I say, white button-up shirts are a classic staple for anyone’s closet. White button-up shirts are awesome because they are lightweight, and they can be styled in so many ways. If you go to Instagram, you will literally see several reels on how to style a white button-up shirt.
These shirts are perfect with any bottom and they even look great over a dress. White button-up shirts are great for a summer capsule wardrobe because they can make a great cover-up for a swimsuit or over any other article of clothing.

What’s summer without denim shorts. Denim shorts are definitely a staple wardrobe item for any summer capsule wardrobe. The great thing about denim shorts is that they can be dressed up or down. Wearing a blazer with a pair of denim shorts and heels can easily dress up any pair of shorts. Another great thing about denim shorts is that they come in many styles and lengths.

Leggings are a great wardrobe essential for any capsule. They are perfect because they are super comfortable and they look great with anything. A great pair of leggings will leave you feeling comfortable and in style no matter the season.
Of course, you need a great dress for the summer. Dresses are essential for any capsule because they can be styled in so many different ways. Dresses can be the perfect coverup for a beach day or to wear when you need something quick and easy.
A great versatile dress can be a foundational piece for several different outfit options. You will also find that experimenting with different lengths of dresses can be fun and it will allow you to find a summer dress that is perfect for you!
