My spring capsule wardrobe

With spring just around the corner, it’s time to change my winter capsule wardrobe to a spring one.

Winter has its beauty, but honestly, I couldn’t be happier when I’m putting away my jumpers, turtleneck and winter jackets.

I love wearing dresses, cute tops and sandals, so the closer the summer is, the better I feel 😉

COLOUR PALETTE

When I think of spring I always think of pastel colours, and that shows in my spring wardrobe as well.

Where in winter, I prefer more saturated deep colours, in spring I like to change things up and go for softer lighter colours.

I like soft pinks, beiges and light greys, with a base of black, white and denim. But my style wouldn’t be mine if I didn’t also keep some corals and deeper pinks as my accent colours.

It is important to note though, that I don’t consciously decide which colours I want to wear in which season because that can feel limiting or inauthentic.

Instead, I allow myself to pick whatever I want and then I make an observation on which colours I gravitate towards, so it can inform my shopping decision in the future.

MY CHOICES

Here is everything that I picked out for this spring.

I didn’t focus on any specific numbers, but on the overall cohesiveness and versatility of the closet.

FAVOURITE SPRING OUTFIT FORMULAS

Having your favourite outfit formulas is a great little tool to simplify getting ready and also making sure we love most outfits we put together.

So when it comes to transitional seasons, the list of different outfit combinations is a bit longer, so I’m ready for any temperature change 😉

The spring outfit formulas that I love the most are:

  • Trench coat + button-up blouse + belt + jeans + sneakers
  • Blazer + t-shirt/long-sleeve shirt + jeans + sneakers
  • Fun top/cami (+ cardigan) + jeans + sandals/wedges
  • Coat/cardigan + dress + sneakers

MY ADDITIONS & WISHLIST

I already added two things to my wardrobe – I finally found the pink jumper that I’ve been looking for, so I’m really excited about this new addition!

And the other piece is something I found unexpectedly while travelling with my husband. It’s a cute silk pink cami and because I love wearing camis in spring, summer and fall it was a perfect addition to my collection.

As far as any new purchases go, I don’t really have a long wishlist for spring – I just want to find a good white denim jacket and that’s it!

  1. Hi Kim, awesome post! I like the bases, coordinating, & accent colors picture. It’s a great idea to have a palette as a guide when thinking about how to pair clothes. I tend to wear lots of floral in spring & summer 🙂 I love nature, flowery designs

    1. Thank you so much! Yes, knowing your colour palette really helps when designing a capsule wardrobe, and it also helps with future purchases 🙂 And I love flowery designs too, especially in the summer! 😊
