How To Choose A Summer Capsule Wardrobe 2023

We are hopeful and dare I say, even holding our breath at the idea that spring has finally sprung, and what’s more, summer is peeking her bright face around the corner. Of course, the warm weather has us purging and packing away our cold-weather clothing pieces in exchange for airy linen, floral dresses, and sandals.

Here at E&I, we love a good capsule wardrobe because they can offer simplicity, classic style, and sustainability. Mixing and matching a core group of clothing pieces can help alleviate the problem of “What do I wear today” while keeping you chic.

If you’re new to the whole capsule wardrobe idea, let us explain.

What is a capsule wardrobe?

According to Miriam, a capsule wardrobe is a collection of quality clothing pieces that have been thoughtfully curated and are interchangeable with each other to gain the most number of outfits. Simply, a capsule wardrobe is clothing pieces that you have purchased because you love their fit, form, and function. Essentially, you are purchasing a mix of pants, shirts, shoes, outerwear, and accessories that are less about the latest trend or fad, and more about their quality.

Of course, curating a capsule wardrobe takes time as clothing pieces are meticulously curated to co-exist as a system. Once mastered, your wardrobe can be curated, swapped, and stored from season to season. Of course, we can learn from our French counterparts the importance of piecing together quality items for an effortless style.

As a bonus, when you travel, a capsule wardrobe offers fewer items to pack, and yet, your outfits will always look on trend and impeccable.
