How to build a Summer capsule wardrobe

How to build a Summer capsule wardrobe

A seasonal capsule wardrobe is a great way to embrace minimalism and choose several high quality, timeless pieces that work together to create all the style you need all season long. For summer, we love blending comfy, chic basics with pops of color and print. The 15 pieces we think are perfect for your Summer capsule wardrobe are:

1. Classic knit tank top - pairs so easily with shorts, skirts or jeans throughout the year and layers under a cardigan or blazer. Try our Tiffany Knit Tank in latte or black. 

2. Scoop neck t-shirt- a classic silhouette and a wardrobe staple. We love the fun cut out detail and ribbed style of our Michele Cut Out Scoop Neck T-shirt

3. Pair of woven shorts - choose the waist height that feels most comfortable for you. If you like high waisted then try our Charlotte scalloped hem high waist shorts in blue or ivory. 

4. Mini dress - When the weather heats up, a lightweight mini dress is a perfect option for when you need to look pulled together but still feel comfortable. Our Stella Tie Back mini dress in bright bubblegum pink is a fun addition to your wardrobe.


5. Maxi dress - Bring beach getaway vibes to your summer wardrobe with a flowy, light weight maxi dress. Try the Jane color block maxi with adjustable tie straps. 

6. Woven romper - One pieces make a great, easy outfit and can be casual for daytime in flats or dressed up for an evening out with wedges or heels. We love the caftan style sleeves and adjustable belted sash on the Rachael print romper

7. Printed sundress - Another must have dress for your summer capsule wardrobe is an easy, breezy print sundress. Try the Sandy floral print sundress with spaghetti straps, v-neckline and scoop back. 

8. Camisole - The best base layer for your summer capsule wardrobe is a solid color camisole. Pairs easily with jeans or shorts. We love the strappy back detail and cowl neck style of our Christina Cowl Neck Cami. 

9. Printed caftan cover - One of the most versatile pieces in your capsule wardrobe is a printed caftan cover that you can layer over jeans and a t-shirt, shorts and a tank or add to a solid colored dress. It can also be used as a swimsuit cover. Try the Melanie woven print caftan cover

10. Bucket bag -  Carry everything you need for a day out in a cute, trendy bucket bag. We love the neoprene Bali bag so you can go from the beach or pool to the rest of your day and leave the sand behind. 

11. Cross body tote bag - A cross body tote is an essential bag for your year round wardrobe. We like the canvas West Palm bag for running errands or the neoprene Key West bag for pool, lake or beach days. 

12. Flip Flops - For beach and pool days you need a classic pair of flip flops. Our sister shop has black, geometric print flip flops on sale now! 

13. Sandals - For casual outfits we love flat sandals with interesting details. Our sister shop has Gold sandals and black, sparkle sandals on sale. 

14. Wedges - Nude wedges are a great piece to add to your seasonal capsule wardrobe and can dress up a casual outfit to take from day to evening style. We like this Steve Madden pair

15. Swimsuit - Choose a suit that is made with high quality fabric in a timeless style focused on fit, function and chic fashion. We recommend our sister brand Black Pearl Swimwear
