Well folks it’s finally here, it’s officially summer time! So you know what that means…It is time to create those summer capsules! For some of you this may mean pulling out your old clothes out of storage and for others this may mean a trip to the mall. Whatever the case may be, I’m here to offer some advice. Here are my top three tips for creating the perfect summer capsule wardrobe.
1. Try some colors!
Yes, you heard me correctly. Now I know there’s a stereotype that all minimalist are unwaveringly committed to neutral palettes and lets be honest there is something guiltily pleasurable about neutral colors and white light that just feels so right! So I totally understand if you prefer neutrals but the stereotype is false. I am a minimalist who loves colors! I’m also an artist and I love discovering creative palettes for my capsules. It’s a really fun way to bring in the summer. With practice you’ll be able to curate a fun colourful capsule that is both minimal and efficient. Trust me you won’t regret it!
2. Romper and Jumper the Summer!
The biggest life hack that I discovered for this seasons capsule wardrobe, was simply finding all in one pieces that I loved! This minimized my wardrobe because I didn’t have to worry about tops and bottoms as much (although I still have some in my capsule). Wearing a jumper or a romper is an easy way to feel comfortable and efficient throughout the day. They are easy to size up when you are trying to figure out what to wear for the day and the biggest advantage…(drumroll please)…LESS LAUNDRY! Hallelujah!
3. Try Kimono Tops
Since I have a limited amount of jumpers, because I only need a few, I like to add a light Kimono top to keep things fresh and diverse. These tops are perfect for the summer because they allow for lots of air flow during the summer heat, and they add a cute bohemian flare to the outfit of your choice.
So there you have it, my top three tricks! Lets make this summer one of self-discovery. Don’t allow yourself to be pressured by fashion trends from the media or even fellow minimalists trends that don’t actually suit who YOU are. Choose a capsule that is comfortable, practical, minimal, and represents your style and have an awesome summer. You deserve it!
