Since I live in a micro-apartment (the urban equivalent of a “tiny house”) I’m always trying to reduce clutter and minimize my belongings to keep my space beautiful and stay sane. So naturally, I’m drawn to the idea of a capsule wardrobe – one season’s clothing, reduced to just a few pieces that you love and that work well together. I’ve seen a few bloggers who write exclusively about capsule wardrobes, most notably Caroline at Unfancy and Courtney at Project 333. Inspired by them, I’ve been dreaming up what my perfect summer capsule wardrobe would look like, in just 36 pieces. Here’s what I’d love to be wearing right now.
This took a surprisingly long time to put together! As you can see, I stuck to the main colors of black, gray, and navy blue, with accents of aqua, white, and mustard. I think having just a few colors in the palette makes it a lot easier to mix and match, and you can always add in some more pops of color with accessories like scarves and jewelry. A lot of these pieces are really similar to things I already own, and some of them would be very welcome additions to my closet.

I haven’t yet taken the plunge into exclusively using a capsule wardrobe, but I’m really interested to try it out for fall! Of course, I’d be using some stuff I already have, and supplementing with some new things to keep it fresh and round things out. What do you think of the capsule wardrobe idea? Would you limit yourself to just a handful of items each season or do you need to wear something different every day? Tell me your thoughts in the comment section below!
