Summer Capsule Wardrobe Guide

Category: fashion and beauty

Discover the essentials to complete your summer capsule wardrobe!

So, you’ve mastered your winter capsule wardrobe but what about your summer one? Now, we know what you’re thinking – summer is all about elaborate vacation outfits and exciting event assembles – and that’s true, but what about the rest of your summer wardrobe (you know, the sort of pieces you wear from day to day)? Well, we think the rest of your summer wardrobe should be as carefree as the season itself and it just so happens that that’s exactly what a capsule wardrobe offers.

Let us show you how to create the ultimate capsule wardrobe with a handful of staple pieces. The outcome? Endless outfit opportunities suitable for everyday wear while running errands, corporate days spent in the office, and vacation looks for the holiday you’ve been looking forward to all year! The best part is that you can mix and match between styles and ultimately always have something to wear. Not only will your personal style thank you but so will your savings. Utilising a capsule wardrobe will help eliminate getting sucked into micro trends and spending your pretty pennies on items you’ll probably only wear once.

Below we’ve compiled the ultimate capsule wardrobe for summer – simply select what pieces resonate with you most and then it’s time to start shopping at Stockland Green Hills.

Everyday Wear

A classic capsule wardrobe should be versatile and reliable, the goal is to make getting dressed a breeze. You’ll need pieces that can mix and match well together for optimal options, but still, garments that aren’t too boring because it’s summer after all! We recommend at least one striped top, a denim midi skirt (practical and stylish!), and a pair of sneakers that will match well with everything. Ensure that you have a variety of summery accessories to complete your look – think gold jewellery and cute sunglasses.

Corporate Capsule Wardrobe

If you’re more of a boss babe, then you’ll need to work in some corporate pieces into your capsule wardrobe! You’ll want to find items that are perfect for a professional office look but can also be paired with jeans and a tee for a stylish weekend outfit. We recommend summer suiting like tailored linen pants and a matching vest, a large bag for functionality, and sophisticated shoes like loafers, ballet flats, heels or mules.

Vacation capsule wardrobe

Whether your idea of a vacation is lounging around the pool at home or hitting the beach – you’ll need looks to match! First, swimwear is a must – opt for something plain that can be layered under clothing. Next, you’ll need a few variations of cover-up pieces like flowy sundresses as well as a cute hat to match. Don’t forget comfortable shoes for walking around – we’re loving neutral strappy sandals!

There you have it! It’s officially time to consider preparing your capsule wardrobe for summer. We hope this guide helps you create a wardrobe you’ll love throughout the whole season. Gone are the days of having no idea what to wear.
