SPRING CAPSULE WARDROBE TIPS
Spring is officially here and we are so ready for it! Picture it now, sitting in the grass with your friends with wine in hand and sun warming your cheeks. It’s time to pack away those thick layers and bring out your cropped denim and open-toed sandals. I have incorporated some outfit ideas and color combinations to help you envision your perfect capsule wardrobe.
For a capsule wardrobe, you will want to focus on good quality products that are going to last you a lot of wears. Another tip is to buy classic pieces that you can mix and match throughout your wardrobe. Once you have those staple pieces to cycle throughout the spring you can add in some pops of color! What is spring without them?
It’s important to maintain and take care of your clothes properly. Do NOT just throw them in the wash without checking the care instructions. Don’t take the advice of Declan from the movie ‘Leap Year’ and “just throw it in the wash, it’ll be grand.” It will not be grand this time around. Check to see if it needs to be hand washed. Is it able to go in the drying machine? Can it only be washed with like colors? You have to check all of this to ensure that your pieces will last a long time and not go to waste.
PASTEL TONES AND WARM TEMPS
In a spring capsule wardrobe, we want to focus on colors that are neutral or in pastel tones. During the daytime, it is such a lovely temperature but still cools down quite a bit in the evenings. You’re going to want items in your closet that prepares you for both of those temperatures.
Pick colors that are flattering to your skin tone and that make you feel like your best self. This time of year there are so many color opportunities to take advantage of. You can get creative with them and spruce up your wardrobe for the better.
