PINK’S PICKS: Spring Capsule Wardrobe

Spring is FINALLY upon us and did you know I offer styling services?! It’s one of my favorite things to do and if you’re looking for a quick wardrobe update or outfits for a specific event, let’s work together. I am here to help YOU look and feel your best, that’s what PINK’S PICKS is all about. As a sneak peek into my service, I wanted to share my breakdown of a perfect spring capsule wardrobe that I shared recently for a client heading to Europe this season. Let’s get into it.

WHAT IS A CAPSULE WARDROBE:

A capsule wardrobe is simply a collection of clothes/accessories/shoes designed to mix and match and work together to make getting dressed EASY and streamlined. It’s really about having your go-to pieces in your closet you feel confident in, that you can wear in multiple ways and it removes decision fatigue (aka makes getting dressed SIMPLE). It’s really just your core collection of basics and every day items that you know and love.

WHAT SHOULD YOU HAVE IN YOUR SPRING CAPSULE WARDROBE:

Of course, a capsule wardrobe doesn’t have to be “season” specific, but since a new season is upon us,  I wanted to share what I recommend in a capsule wardrobe this spring season, but really this can apply year around depending where you live 🙂

Tees and tanks

Sweaters

Blouses

Dresses

Denim

Trousers

Jackets/Blazers

Heels/Sneakers/Sandal

I put together ALL my current favorites in each category. Happy Shopping!

TEES/TANKS:

We all need our favorite tee or tank for all things layering. I highly recommend splurging on this category versus just buying a target $5 t-shirt, these are items you will wear and wash regularly and of course, multiple color options is KEY. Quality matters in basics in my opinion.  Here are a few of my favorites:

 

SWEATERS:

A neutral or fun color sweater is really a staple in every wardrobe. For spring, I love a sweater to wrap around my shoulder’s as a layering piece or the perfect cardigan is ALWAYS a simple go-to item. You can dress any cardigan up or down and it can also be the perfect layer when it’s not too warm. I love mixing up textures and colors but of course, having a neutral option is key! Here are my current favorite’s:

 

BLOUSE:

If you’re a corporate girlie, you know a blouse is a MUST HAVE. BUT even for a casual weekend fit, a good basic blouse is a staple, especially as we head into spring weather. I love a white linen blouse or a fun striped one for the spring. It’s another great layering piece. You can throw on your favorite tank with your blouse and your favorite denim, and you have the perfect, chic look. Or even over a simple dress!  Here’s my blouse picks:

DRESSES:

I am SO specific about dresses. To be honest, dresses are not my favorite clothing item but I do love a perfect, basic dress that I know I can accessorize or wear with sneakers or heels. Plus, for spring, I love pops of color and this season, even DENIM dresses are SO fun and can be dressed up or down for many different occasions. Here’s a few of my dress picks for this season:

PANTS/DENIM:

I am ALLLLL about denim AND trousers. Denim is a STAPLE in every wardrobe and finding great denim can be so hard. We all have different body types so finding the right denim for YOU should not be about trends but about what fits you best and makes you feel confident. I love denim in all colors, fits, lengths and fits. But when it comes to creating your CAPSULE wardrobe, you want to find the denim and pants you feel best in. I am sharing a few classic fits I love of both trousers and jeans. These are traditional and timeless pieces that can be worn year around but I do love linen pants for spring too:

JACKETS:

Having a few go-to jackets for all seasons is a MUST. For spring, you of course want lighter options but also an option to keep you warm during those cool nights or cool mornings. I love a blazer that can be dressed up or down and I also love a good trench coat, to throw on for an extra layer. Plus, a good denim jacket is always a great option. Leather is also perfect for a night out or edgier look. Here are my coat/jacket favs:

SHOES: 

For shoes, I recommend a few: a good pair of sneakers, a great pair of heels, a flat or loafer, a strappy heel and a fun shoe! I love pops of color of course too because shoes can REALLY bring an outfit together. Here are a few great options across all the shoe spectrums to add into your capsule wardrobe:
