It provides a great solution to the “I don’t know what to wear today” dilemma.

As another winter comes to an end, we are getting ready to embrace the first delightful days of spring, characterized by warm breezes and shining sun.

What is a capsule wardrobe?

A capsule wardrobe is a thoughtfully curated collection of versatile pieces that you love to wear. Creating your own capsule wardrobe should reflect your personal style.

It includes tops, bottoms, dresses, outerwear, shoes, and accessories that can be easily mixed and matched to create both casual and dressier looks. This approach means having fewer trendy pieces that will only be worn for one season and more high-quality, timeless pieces that can be worn for years to come. The advantage? Although it may seem like a bigger investment initially, over time, you’ll actually save money by not constantly buying fast-fashion pieces.

Once you’ve mastered a foundational capsule wardrobe, you can adapt and update it from season to season. This makes it easy to store and swap clothing items based on the time of year, as they remain stylish year after year.

How to build a spring capsule wardrobe

The first step in building a capsule wardrobe is to thoroughly assess what you already own and then declutter. This involves taking each item out of your closet and evaluating whether it should be kept. Don’t forget to review your shoes and accessories as well.

Organize each item into one of four categories:

  1. I love it and would wear it tomorrow: These pieces fit well, suit your lifestyle, and make you happy. Put these back in your closet first.
  2. Maybe: These pieces might not fit perfectly, have sentimental value, or you’re not sure why you don’t wear them more. (If you haven’t worn it more than once, it belongs in this category too). Place all of these items in a box that is easily accessible. If you find yourself reaching for an item, return it to your closet; if you haven’t reached for it by the end of the season, keep it in the box to donate. This approach allows for flexibility and the option to change your mind later.
  3. Hard no: Whether it’s because it doesn’t fit or you’ve decided you don’t like it, pack these pieces up and donate them.
  4. Seasonal: There’s no need to keep a cashmere sweater next to your summer tank tops. Store all seasonal pieces in a location that is easy to access for seasonal swaps.

Next, review what’s left in your closet and consider your personal style and any gaps you may have. You might be stocked on jeans but in need of a new spring jacket. With a clear vision of what you’ll be pairing that jacket with, you’ll be able to make a more informed choice that fits your wardrobe. This doesn’t mean you have to completely forgo trendy pieces and permanently stick to wearing button-ups and jeans. It simply means that when you do purchase trendier pieces, you know that they will have a place in your wardrobe and will get regular wear.

How to style your spring capsule wardrobe

Looking for outfit ideas to create with your spring capsule? Here are a few suggestions.

This look exemplifies a capsule wardrobe: It’s a timeless ensemble, but the modern and current pieces give it a fresh and contemporary feel. For instance, the sleeveless linen top is a staple, but the longer silhouette provides a contemporary touch. Ballet flats are the epitome of a wardrobe essential and also stand the test of time. When these pieces are combined, they form a sophisticated spring outfit perfect for a classy brunch, a date, or a weekend outing.

For those brisk spring days when you need to dress warmly and layer pieces but still want to maintain a seasonal feel, this floral-embroidered cardigan is a perfect match. Pair it with relaxed jeans and comfortable heeled sandals for an effortless outfit that you can rely on. If it’s particularly chilly, layer a long-sleeve shirt under the cardigan for extra warmth.

One of the finest aspects of a capsule wardrobe is that by strategically mixing and matching your classic pieces, you can style them to be trendier for the season without adding a slew of trendy garments to your closet. A denim shirt is a timeless wardrobe staple that you can wear in various ways, but this spring, consider pairing it with jeans in a similar wash and partake in the season’s Canadian tuxedo trend. Complete the outfit with a simple chain necklace and your favorite ballet flats.

knit tank (plus)| heart earrings | relaxed jeans (plus) | shoulder bag | heeled sandals

One of the joys of spring dressing is the ability to throw on a tank top and jeans and head out the door. This corset-style tank is extremely flattering, and when tucked into straight-leg jeans, it creates a simple, seamless silhouette that can be layered on top of or left as-is. To dress it up for a night out, add a colorful bag and stylish statement earrings.
