Hello friends! By popular request, today’s post features my 2022 Summer Capsule Wardrobe! For Summer’s feature, subscribers have first look, with all access open mid week! Whether you’re subscribed or you’ve landed here from mere curiosity, I hope this post helps answer questions you may have about capsule wardrobes, it’s process, the benefits, and more so – be a source of inspiration when building your own this season!
If I am being honest, I typically skip the Summer capsule build. Summer months can be a little tricky. Some years Summer arrives June, and others the bulk of the heat doesn’t land until August. This year tho, seems as if Spring came and went and our heat wave landed late May. As with all capsules I build here, I want whatever I share to serve as a guide to help create your own. And in order to do so, I must consider those still in transition and those who are already ripping off the layers to prevent overheat! I created this early Summer capsule with humid weather in mind, while also recognizing that some may still be experiencing Spring-like weather or (like me) like to wear pants regardless of the outside temps. So, just know that all pant outfits shared below can be substituted for shorts and visa versa.
By no means do I suggest grabbing all of these items. The intent in building a capsule is to start with the items you have beforehand and progress from there. (be sure to check out my entire ‘how to get started guide’ [linked below] to chat all the ins and outs of capsule building.) If you have some of these items, yay! We’ve similar style! If you have similar items, go ahead and replace my example for your own. If you love my color palette, or any of the outfits pieced together, please use the inspiration! My hope in sharing this capsule is to shed light on the benefits of a minimal wardrobe, see the versatility in each chosen piece, and ease any doubt in the ability to create your own!
A few of these items I’ve had in closet for a while and are no longer available. I’ve made sure to link similar. And lastly, as promised, for the items over $100, I’ve sourced and linked alternative, more affordable options, marked less.
COMPLETERS + OUTERWEAR (3)
denim jacket (less)
pocket cardigan (less)
striped neutral sweater (less)
white linen button up
eyelet blouse (less)
pink short sleeve sweater (similar)
cropped blue cashmere sweater (less)

Below I’ve put together 24 outfits using only the items listed in the capsule. This is just a fraction of the looks one can create! Feel free to accessorize as desired! I plan to implement a capsule series via socials that spotlight several of these looks IRL. I’ve marked those with a star. Stay tuned for all to come!
