Summer Wardrobe Capsule


Summer is upon us, and I think it’s time to break out the cute summer outfits! I don’t know about you, but I need more variations to my wardrobe besides shorts and tank tops. When I first heard about a wardrobe capsule, I had no idea what to expect. But it has completely changed the way I look at getting dressed and what I buy.

Instead of walking into Target, Walmart or Old Navy and grabbing something that catches my eye, only to realize the reason it caught my eye was because I have one just like it in my closet, I now leave with unique pieces that can be mixed and matched with other pieces. Come on this journey with me and you’ll learn how to create your very own summer wardrobe capsule.

What is a capsule?

A capsule is a curated collection of clothing. I took unique pieces of clothing and mix and matched them with each other. To add some flare and fun, I added simple accessories and shoes. The items I chose weren’t overly expensive or hard to find, but they were simple and great for an everyday summer outfit.

Getting Started

For this summer wardrobe capsule you need to pick 4-6 tops, and 4-6 bottoms. You can pick some with patterns, some solid colors and preferably colors that compliment each other. 

I chose six tops and four bottoms to mix and match. Here are the links to purchase any of these tops or bottoms.


Denim Button Up

Tie-Hem Blouse

Grey Crew Neck Shirt

White Crew Neck Shirt

Button Down Tank

Criss-Cross Cami


Denim Shorts

Utility Shorts (Army and Black)


To add some flare and fun to each outfit, pick out some fun accessories and shoes. Here are the choices I picked. 


Straw Hat

Round Straw Bag

Leopard Earrings

Tear Drop Earrings

Woven Earrings (Walmart In-Store Only)


Tan Flats

Yellow Knot Flats

Black Ruffle Flats (Walmart In-Store Only)

Mix and Match

When mixing and matching your items don’t be nervous. Chelsey Clinton from “What Not to Wear” is not going to pop out of your closet and attack you. Think about colors that compliment each other and not mixing too many patterns. Remember that this summer capsule wardrobe needs to represent you and your life, and be something you can be comfy and confident in. You may even be able to snatch a babysitter and go out for a date night with the hubby.
