The Ultimate Summer Capsule Wardrobe for Effortless, Feminine Style

This post: My 40-piece summer capsule (& a printable checklist).

Looking for inspiration for a feminine summer wardrobe? Today I’m sharing a peek at my 40-piece summer capsule (plus a FREE printable checklist to help you curate your own).

Summer Capsule Quick Reads

Why I have a Capsule Wardrobe

I have pretty limited closet space, so I curated a small summer capsule to maximize my outfits without taking up tons of room.

Why 40 Pieces

I’m not QUITE a minimalist. But I do have just 40 items hanging on my clothes rack. This doesn’t include my shoes, swim wear, workout clothes, pajamas, etc.; but it does account for pretty much everything else I wear.

What’s Unique About THIS Capsule

My 2024 summer capsule features lots of pink, white, blue, & black; floral prints & stripes; linen & cotton blends; rompers, summer dresses, feminine shorts, & smocked tops. I love a mix of preppy, romantic, soft, bold, & classy. (My fashion icon is Princess Catherine (Kate Middleton).

How I Wear My Summer Capsule

In short, over & over. I mix & match nearly everything to create LOTS of outfits – & I’ll wear many of these pieces long into the fall season, too.

Brands I Love

You’ll see lots of brands on REPEAT: JCrew; Loft & Ann Taylor; Kate Spade; Banana Republic; Old Navy; H&M; & Other Stories; & a few select pieces from Sarah Flint.

Where I Shop

I shop Outlets > Clearance > Consignment shops > Thrift stores

I have expensive tastes, but a modest budget! That means dressing well (without over-spending) has become a GAME for me.

  1. What a gorgeous capsule! Especially loving the pointed flats, the t-shirts, and the dresses Also love the colors you chose as I often see capsules in earth tones, and like you clear bright colors work better for me. Xo Nipa

    1. Thank you, Nipa! Yes – knowing what works with your complexion gives you so much freedom in choosing colors & tones when building a wardrobe. As much as I admire beautiful, more natural earth tones, I can’t wear most of them. I have to stick with bolder jewel tones!
