If there is one thing that we have started loving doing here at Living In Yellow, it’s creating seasonal capsule wardrobes for all of you. We first tried our hand at it with this fall capsule from last year and then followed it up with a winter capsule, put together a fun work capsule and thought that there is no better time than now to tackle a summer capsule. Before we jump in, I should clarify what this whole “capsule wardrobe” phrase even means as it may be new to you.
A capsule wardrobe is when you piece together a grouping of items [typically between 15-20] that all work together within your wardrobe to interchange and get creative with. The point behind a capsule wardrobe is to minimize the number of items you have on hand while maximizing the number of ways you can wear each piece. From a creativity standpoint, it’s awesome – a capsule wardrobe will force you to be more intentional about making sure all items work together in multiple ways, which really will make you feel like you have a closet full of options with just a few pieces! This not only creates a lot less headache and time in the morning when deciding what to wear but also saves you money as well. I think we can agree that we like saving on all of the above.
I love that these capsule wardrobes really stretch your creativity when piecing together outfits and making you realize how many different ways you can truly wear something when you try. For today’s summer capsule, we pieced together 16 different pieces [4 tops, 1 jacket, 1 dress, 1 skirt, 1 pair of shorts, 1 pair of pants, 3 pairs of shoes, 2 bags, 1 pair of earrings and 1 necklace] and created at least 30 different outfits. I love that these outfits can be worn for work, date nights, days out shopping, evenings at the baseball diamond, etc. For the color scheme, we went with a white, blush, navy and green combo and I couldn’t love it more! Before we show all of the outfits, let’s get a quick rundown of the pieces in this summer capsule:
