My summer capsule wardrobe

I’m so excited to change up my closet for my favourite season – summer!

I love dresses and skirts and shorts and sandals and summer hats. I love it all!

So I can’t wait to share everything that is hiding in my summer capsule wardrobe to give you some inspiration as well.

COLOUR PALETTE

For me, summer is super fun and light, so I keep a lot of bright and colourful items.

I love how they look on me when I’m tan and they provide that little break from wearing black and darker colours all the other seasons.

My basic consist of white, beige and bright pinks, because that is what I wear the most.

My coordinating colours are denim and black because they’re easy to match with my basics.

And the accent colours are something I wear to spice up my wardrobe and make it a little bit more fun, and here I have the colour navy, light grey and baby pink.

MY CHOICES

Here is everything that I picked out for summer 2020:

CLOTHES (46):

  • 3 button-up blouses
  • 5 camis
  • 6 summer sleeveless/off-shoulder tops
  • 3 t-shirts
  • 3 cardigans
  • 12 dresses
  • 4 skirts
  • 4 pairs of shorts
  • 5 pairs of jeans
  • 1 pair of wide pants

OUTERWEAR (15):

  • 2 denim jackets
  • 3 blazers
  • 1 trench coat
  • 9 pairs of shoes

ACCESSORIES (15):

  • 1 scarf/shawl
  • 1 summer hat
  • 6 belts
  • 6 bags
  • 1 backpack

FAVOURITE SUMMER OUTFIT FORMULAS

The concept of outfit formulas truly transformed my approach to style, because I know exactly which cuts and combinations I like, and that simplified my life tremendously.

Plus I always feel like my best self in the outfits that I wear.

Of course, I wear a lot more combinations than just my favourite formulas, but still, I would say that I wear my tried and tested outfit formulas 80% of the time, if not more.

And here are summer outfit formulas I love the most:

  • Sandals + summer dress + cardigan/denim jacket
  • Sneakers/sandals + high waist shorts + cami/summer top + blazer
  • Sandals/sneakers + high waist skirt/shorts + knotted blouse

MY ADDITIONS & WISHLIST

This year I already added a pair of black sandals to replace the older silver pair, and I unexpectedly fell in love with a coral blazer, which is a perfect colour addition to my summer collection.

What I would love to add is a coral midi dress and I’m also looking for a more neutral summer hat, so I can use it more than my brown-ish one.

And I’ve been on a hunt for a white fitted denim jacket with no embellishments or shiny metal buttons, and with 1-2% elastane for extra comfort, but I haven’t found one yet. I’ve been searching for it since last summer, but I know it will take me some time to find the perfect one.

This is it, as far as summer goes 🙂
