Summer Capsule Wardrobe from LOFT

What’s a Capsule Wardrobe?

If before we get into this you’re like… wait a minute Rachel, what’s a capsule wardrobe? Let me explain. The idea of a capsule wardrobe is to group versatile, basic wardrobe pieces that can be restyled in many outfit combinations. The goal is to minimize your wardrobe with pieces that mix and match AND ALL LOOK FABULOUS. Not only are you buying less, but the pieces I’m sharing today and budget friendly. Many of these items are high-quality, timeless pieces that will work for years to come.

I’m partnering with LOFT to share this year’s summer capsule wardrobe. I stuck to my normal neutrals since they are flexible and can be worn tons of ways and with many pieces. Depending on the shoes and accessories you style with each piece, you can take most of these from day to night in a snap.

Tops

Let’s start with tops. My first pick was the button strappy cami because it’s so versatile. A simple cami can be styled a million ways. Another versatile piece is the white button down top. This crinkle fabric of this shirt is a twist on the summer classic.

Also included in tops is this sweater tank. It’s made of a thicker material so it looks and feels higher quality and will last you for many seasons. I also had to add this embroidered sweater halter top that can be worn dressed up or down.

Lastly, even summer needs a few go to sweaters. It’s super versatile and the perfect piece for summer nights. I love the mixture of textures on this sweater and the thinner material of this cardigan makes it great for light layering.

Dress / Jumpsuit / Shorts / Jeans

Moving on to bottoms and a fun jumpsuit. Every summer wardrobe needs the perfect pair of jean shorts. I also can’t get enough of the sailor style for warm weather, so I had to include these shorts.

For the jumpsuit and dress, I kept it pretty simple. They are both so easy to dress up or dress down. Then of course, a pair of white and a not-so-dark blue jeans is essential for a summer wardrobe.

Shoes

Alright, I’m keeping it EXTRA simple with shoes and highlighting just three gotta-have-ems. For a flat sandal option, these ankle strap sandals are a go-to because they are chic and comfortable. And, of course, we also have a chunky wedge and a block heel option to wear for any nights out or to dress up your shorts or jeans.

Accessories

Last but not least, we need to accessorize. I don’t like to overdo it with accessories. Not only can it weigh down an outfit, but having too many accessories in your closet can quickly feel like clutter, so I stick to the basics.

I’m picking just one option for a bag, this pom pom straw crossbody bag – not bulky, but the size is perfect to carry the essentials. For sunglasses, a blush pink option is the perfect color to add to neutral summer outfits. Then for jewelry, I chose a pair of timeless gold hoop earrings that will go with any outfit.

Top (xs) // Shorts (size 0 – sized down) // Similar shoes

This white button down is a twist on a summer classic.  I love the crinkled texture as it masks wrinkles! The sailor shorts are so cute. If you’re between sizes go down!  I’m usually a size 2 and wearing size 0 in these and they’re not overly snug.  They are is adorable if you love a coastal vibe like I do.

This sweater tank is good for layering with jackets such as a cropped utility coat, etc. or solo.  I’m wearing size 2 in the jean shorts which is my usual size. I often size down in LOFT shorts and didn’t in these. These are mid rise and they’re comfy! There’s no distressing which I know some readers have requested.
