Inspiration for Your Spring Capsule Wardrobe

There are some steps to help you build a Spring capsule wardrobe. You will achieve the most success but coordinating a few things before you start buying clothing items.

Spring capsule wardrobe colour scheme examples

1. Select A Colour Palette

When choosing your spring wardrobe, the colour pallet is the most crucial factor. Every item you wear needs to match or work with another for this to work. Start with one must-have Spring fashion piece in your wardrobe, and then choose two complementary colours that work with this garment. So your colour pallet should consist of 3 complimentary colours.

Capsule Wardrobe Spring Accessories

It’s spring, so expect a little sun to peek out now and again. Remember to bring a hat and sunglasses for super sunny days. The most significant challenge will be with your shoes, depending on weather conditions you may want comfy closed-toe shoes or sandals.

Don’t forget to include some jewelry or a silk scarf to add to your outfits.

Capsule Wardrobe Spring Tops and Sweaters

Your choice of clothing for a spring vacation may be a combination of warmer long sleeve shirts and more relaxed t-shirts or blouses. Add a light sweater and plan to layer to manage the change in temperature.

Capsule Wardrobe Spring Bottoms

The same rules apply for your bottoms as they do for your tops. Again have a combination of items for warmer weather and some for cooler. Skirts and capris pants are ideal for day or night and in warmer or colder temps. A simple pair of tights can help for colder days.

Capsule Wardrobe Spring Outerwear and Shoes

Having the right footwear doesn’t have to be a challenge. Picking the right shoes will also depend on the weather if it calls for a lot of rain you may want to have a pair of stylish rain boots or waterproof hiking shoes. For warmer weather, try some gladiator sandals or a fancy pair of sneakers. Shoes that you can dress up and dress down comfortably are your best bet.

Rain or shine, we hope you have fun when choosing your spring capsule wardrobe. It’s all about preparation and colour coordination. Being able to take outfits and mix and match them for both colder and warmer temperatures and then being ready for rain.
