Do you ever just stare into your closet and think you have nothing to wear? All of these clothes are looking back at you but you can’t seem to create an outfit for the day. Same here, girl! That’s why there are some simple basics you should always have in your closet to build a capsule wardrobe around.
A capsule wardrobe should be a collection of items you have that you can style a 1000 different ways! It should also be high quality pieces…not your fast fashion, trendy stuff. Let’s dive in to what we suggest you have on hand.
Hoop Earrings will never not be in style. The good news about that? There are millions of different styles you can choose from. Find something that fits your style and invest the money into a pair of great hoops. We always opt for a pair of chunky, medium sized hoops but love a twisted style or even the triple hoops we carry!
What can you throw on any day to dress or dress down? Um, yeah, a sundress! We love the Bali Elf sundresses we carry because they are 100% cotton making them durable and high quality. Dress them up with heels or wedges in the summer or knee high boots in the winter. Throw on your favorite sneakers and grab your shopping tote to hit the farmers market! You really can’t go wrong with a versatile sundress. We suggest choosing a classic color too that fits into your wardrobe.
You will never not have a need for a good neutral sweater. Keep it simple and sweet in a style that can do more than one thing. For example, our Bare With Me Sweater. Available in a rich camel color you can style this as a high neck sweater or off the shoulder. Its classic style will make you look instantly chic.
Do we even need to explain this one? Well, maybe we do if you’re not a mini skirt lady but prefer a longer style. (In that case check out our Chalmers Skirt) BUT, a mini skirt is a must have for the spring and summer. We love a linen mini. They are cool, classic and easy breezy for hot weather. A white pleated skirt is another fun addition to your capsule wardrobe that really will last the ages.
There is nothing easier than layering a tank under an over sized shirt or throwing it on with your favorite pair of jeans. So invest in them! Buy yourself a white and black tank and body suit to throw on any day of the week. Make them organic, high quality staples so you don’t keep running through them too.
There will never be a time where a button down is not a good idea. Button down for work? Yes. Button down with shorts for a cool girl summer look? Yes. Button down with high waisted jeans to let them all know you're the ultimate cali girl? Hell yes! Get yourself a sexy linen or satin button down to dress up or down all summer long.
