Here are various looks assembled from some of the pieces in my spring/summer 2014 capsule wardrobe. Creating a capsule wardrobe will give you many options if you choose a variety of pieces that correlate well with each other. I design my capsule wardrobe around 15 main pieces, then add a few extra items such as tees and jackets to provide versatility and layering. I definitely made more than a few changes in my capsule wardrobe this season, yet I used the “one in one out” simple rule of minimalism so not to accumulate more pieces, but to instead replace what was lost or no longer in good condition, and in some cases did a bit of upcycling.
Now that we are coming upon the last days of summer, it is certainly the perfect time to access each item in the previous fall/winter wardrobe. If you are interested in creating your own capsule wardrobe with ease then this article will help you break down the process. You can also see my 15 item capsule wardrobe checklist for a clear idea on what items I look for when creating my capsule wardrobe each season. I don’t always get every item on that list, but it has served as a great guideline for me. This recent capsule wardrobe was created mainly around basics. I think I may change a few things up for the fall, but we’ll see.
