Spring is approaching us very soon and as the weather changes, so does our capsule wardrobe. What is a capsule wardrobe you ask? A capsule wardrobe is a minimal wardrobe that you put together with your favorite pieces for the season. The whole point of a capsule wardrobe is to maximize the wear of your clothes by mixing and matching to create multiple looks. This guarantees that you WILL use your clothes this season and it allows you to create new looks that you wouldn't have came up with otherwise.
We have always heard and read about capsule wardrobes, but it was one of those thing you think "I can never do that." "How can I limit myself to what's only on the rack?" It's tough, but using this method is super cost efficient, and forces you to get out of the box with your style. Interesting right? So we gave it a try for the first time for the upcoming spring. We chose some pieces that we love but never wear (we all have those) to make sure we get some use out of it, like this fun cheetah top and a silk midi length floral printed dress that was only worn once 4 years ago on our birthday. Then we selected some of our favorite pairs of jeans, (about 3) choose different washes to give yourself options. Now because this is a Spring capsule wardrobe, we picked out a few sweaters for the colder days, and some shorter length tops for the warmer ones. Make sure you include both dressy and casual options! Remember, this is your wardrobe for the whole season, so make sure you are covered! We can't forget the shoes too! Stick with some neutral colors then throw in one or two pops of color. Don't forget your bags! We picked out an adorable basket bag for that spring feel, and a fun bright green bag along with a big clutch.
Okay, so we've built our wardrobe. Now it's up to you to get creative. You can mix and match, layer, tie up some pieces...the possibilities are ENDLESS! It's not as difficult as you may think. It's honestly a great time saver in the morning too. Check out our Youtube channel Ashley&Angelique to see our Spring Capsule Wardrobe for some inspo as well. We have been loving the layered look and getting out of our comfort zone with pops of color. We this it's brilliant! We challenge you to give it a try and see what you're able to create! Thank you so much for stopping by XOXO!
