Mix and match:
Choose items that can easily be mixed and matched. For instance, Effie Pants can be paired with the matching Effie Blazer for a professional look, or combined with Daria Top and sneakers for a relaxed weekend outfit. May Skirt is a staple that can transition from a casual day out to a formal evening event just with a change of accessories.

Make sure you have different silhouettes:
Incorporating different silhouettes into your summer capsule is crucial for maximum outfit variation. Opt for a mix of tailored, flowy, long, short, form-fitting and voluminous pieces, to make sure you can play around with volume to create different looks, and have options for various occasions. Different silhouettes allow you to create diverse looks that keep your wardrobe interesting and versatile.

Remember to include accessories:
Incorporate accessories that elevate your outfits. Sleek handbags in different sizes, a few different pairs of heels and flat shoes, timeless jewelry and a chic pair of sunglasses will add a touch of elegance to any look. Accessories are a great way to dress up or down a look, depending on the occasion, and adding the right accessories can transform a simple outfit into something sophisticated.

Prioritize comfort and quality:
Invest in high-quality fabrics that are breathable, washable and comfortable for summer. Great choices to ensure you stay comfortable and stylish throughout the season, are tencel, linen, modal and viscose.

By following these steps and focusing on versatile, high quality pieces, you can build a summer capsule wardrobe, that not only simplifies your daily dressing routine, but also keeps you looking chic and polished for any occasion.
