As much as I love fashion, I’m also a big believer that it doesn’t take a lot to build a successful wardrobe. Even these 12 pieces can create countless outfits! The trick is to focus on versatile silhouettes, materials and colors. In the case of this summer capsule wardrobe, I focused on items that are super comfortable, lightweight and complementary to each other.
Shorts can be hit or miss, but these from Abercrombie are very flattering. The side slits are a small detail but make them super comfortable. They come in a great range of washes as well!
I wear these sandals quite often because they’re so versatile. You can style them casually or for a special occasion. I love what a statement the braiding makes without drawing too much attention away from the overall outfit.
A blend of linen and cotton is ideal for your summer capsule wardrobe because it’s so lightweight and breathable. This shirt is incredibly timeless and can be worn many different ways – open, tied at the waist, tucked in, as a coverup, etc.
I absolutely love M.M.LaFleur and this shirt specifically. The Pima cotton fabric is amazingly soft and the fit is perfect. Not too loose or too tight! I’m very impressed with the quality for the price.
Nike’s quality is unmatched for the price! I wear these sneakers all the time and part of the reason is because the sole and leather upper are the same color of white, which is less common than you’d think but creates a sharper look.
No summer capsule wardrobe is complete without sunglasses like these! I love the retro twist of the silhouette and find tortoiseshell to be such a versatile color.
These pants are ideal for those of you who are working in an office or simply love the trouser trend. The slight crop is super flattering and the cuffs are a polished extra touch.
There’s a reason you see the Hermes Oran Sandals everywhere – they are as comfortable as they are chic! I bought them while we were in Capri on our honeymoon and f you’re in a place to invest, I promise you’ll wear these all summer long.
An elasticized waistband is comfortable for everyone, and especially a new Mom like me! I appreciate how the front of these shorts don’t have the elastic and maintain a more polished look.
I own the maxi version of this dress in two colors and reach for them constantly. The mini silhouette is great to throw on and go, not to mention the price is impressive for the quality.
These are the BEST denim shorts. They run big but the length is spot on. If you can spend a little more, I’d go for these versus the Abercrombie pair, but you really can’t go wrong!
