How to Build a Spring Capsule Wardrobe

March 28, 2023


Team LIY

It’s that time again — spring has finally SPRUNG which means it’s time to start building a brand-spankin’ new capsule wardrobe! [Don’t panic, you probably already own a few of these closet staples!] If you’ve been following along over the past few years, you’ve probably seen another capsule or twelve on the blog [peep ’em all here] and if you’re new here, you may be thinking “what the WHAT? a spring capsule wardrobe? girlfriend, speak English please.” I get it, I’ve been there – a clueless girl about what in the world a capsule wardrobe is. Have no fear friend, a capsule wardrobe explanation is here!


If you aren’t familiar with what a capsule wardrobe is, I’ll quickly explain – a capsule wardrobe is where you take several pieces (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.


For our spring capsule wardrobe, we went with a bright & colorful color scheme while keeping the basics neutral to ensure their longevity in your closet! For this capsule, we included an on-trend midi dress to keep you looking and feeling cute [and cool!] during those warmer days, a classic denim jacket for the cool evenings, and several tops and bottoms to mix and match! Of course, we couldn’t forget the accessories a few spring-ready shoes & handbags that are sure to be staples in your wardrobe! With just a handful of items we were able to come up with nearly 50 different looks that are perfect for all types of weather, occasions and [hopefully] events that spring can bring. Curious what pieces we chose for our capsule? Here you have em’!
