A Versatile Capsule Wardrobe for Spring: Staples That Can Follow You Into Summer

Want to know which clothing items work for every body type and style this Spring, but you can still wear through Summer? I have a complete list comprising of a few essentials that pack a powerful punch for this season and will easily follow you into the next season.

Spring is in full force around the country, and has just arrived in Colorado, which means it’s a great time to think about pieces that will work for the weather now, but continue to play a part in our Summer wardrobes. All the following items effortlessly blend style, versatility, and sustainability. 

A Few Staples Make a Huge Impact

In terms of your wardrobe, staples are those items that allow you to effortlessly mix and match with the specialty clothing that makes your style unique.

A lightweight sweater will always be a warm-weather fashion staple. Choose a lightweight sweater in a versatile neutral tone. It's perfect for layering on cooler spring days and adds a touch of coziness. It can also be worn over the shoulders for a touch if warmth. I especially like loose-knit crochet-style sweaters that have a wide weave, or the lightweight crew neck sweaters that can instantly make any outfit look polished.

Another wardrobe essential is the tailored blazer. Though it may seem like a Fall or Winter essential, the blazer is a clothing item that can transition seamlessly between seasons. The key is to make sure the blazer is well-fitted, which instantly elevates any look. As a nod to the warmer weather, look for fabrics like linen, cotton, and seersucker. Swap out the black and navy blazers for lighter or more colorful fabrics.

The next essential should come as no surprise: a white button-down shirt. A crisp white button-up shirt is a wardrobe must and is one that never goes out of style. It's incredibly versatile and can be worn with jeans for a casual look, paired with tailored trousers for a more polished ensemble, or worn as a lightweight third layer instead of a jacket. Don't stop with a traditional button-down thought. Also look for a "better-than-average" white or cream blouse or shirt. This is the perfect time of year to capitalize on the beauty of simplicity.

Light wash jeans are always wise to have in your wardrobe. They're perfect for daytime outings and can be styled with virtually anything in your wardrobe. The same goes for lightweight pants or trousers. Invest in a pair of trousers or lightweight, flowy pants in a versatile color like white, navy, or camel. They're perfect for both work and play and can be styled in countless ways to suit your personal style.

And we can’t forget to add the flowy midi dress and a versatile skirt to our list of essentials. The midi dress can be an ultra-casual option like knit fabrics, a timeless option like linen, or breathable cotton. It's effortlessly chic and can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with sneakers for a more relaxed vibe.

You’ll also want to ensure that you have comfortable shoes. Every woman needs a pair of comfortable flats for days when heels just won't do. Opt for a classic neutral sandal. If you’d like a closed-toe shoe, try a ballet flat or sleek loafer that complements your wardrobe. Finally, especially for Spring and Summer, a contemporary fashion sneaker is a must-have shoe for both comfort and style.

And the tried and true: a denim jacket will never go out of style. It offers classic appeal that effortlessly elevates casual styles, whether it’s layered over a floral dress for a touch of edge or paired with jeans for a double-denim ensemble. A good tee-shirt will also always be a solid closet staple. Whether it’s white, graphic, or striped, tees are perennial favorites for Springtime. Each option is a perfect canvas for layering under colorful cardigans and jackets or styling them on their own. Pair them with jeans or your flowing skirt and dress them up or down with your unique accessory and shoe choices.

Mix and match all your essential pieces to suit your personal style and embrace the season with confidence and style. If you need help developing your personal style, contact meto set up a one-on-one appointment where I can help you become your best, authentic, intentional self.
