TIPS to Creating a Capsule Wardrobe! Tailoring a foundational seasonal wardrobe to your lifestyle is key to getting the most out of each piece. Our suggestions may not fit your exact routine or style, so go ahead and mix it up! 

  • Know your style. Sporty, boho, minimalist, career, colorful, casual. Make sure each piece in your capsule represents who you are and what you like to wear. 
  • Know what you reach for. Don’t underestimate the items that make you truly comfortable 24/7. If you know you’ll never wear a silk tank, substitute in another classic tee or breezy buttondown! 
  • Know your season/weather. ie, if you live in Arizona, maybe forget the long denim for summer and add an extra semi-casual date-night dress.
  • Know your activity level. Hitting the gym, all day, everyday? Add in your favorite essential workout tanks, leggings or running shorts and the best running or hiking shoe. Jet-setting from meeting to meeting? Add black slacks or a timeless pencil dress or skirt into your summer wardrobe. 

Almost summer! Happy shopping!
