How’s your spring wardrobe essentials update coming along?
Today, I thought I’d bring all of those ideas together in one spring capsule collection.
(You may be wondering why I’m yet to talk swimsuits and other such beach essentials … stay tuned. I’ve got a whole resort week coming up on the blog and we’ll cover off on these items hopefully in time before any planned summer escapes. I’m doing a little escape of my own and am heading in October to Bali for a girlfriend’s 40th so I’m very much in resort wear planning mode!)
The idea behind this 13-piece capsule collection is to give you a snapshot of how just a few key spring wardrobe pieces can work together to create a number of different looks.
It will hopefully inspire you to be more mindful before making any purchases but also to look in your wardrobe to see what you already have. Think about how you can make new and existing pieces better work for you.
I’ve kept this spring capsule collection mostly on the smart casual side with the addition of a couple of pieces to take you through to the party season.
1. Witchery linen tee $49.95 | 2. Country Road top $129 | 3. Seed tee $49.95 | 4. Country Road shorts $69.95 | 5. Blue Illusion pants $109.95 | 6. Blue Illusion knit $129.95 | 7. Witchery blazer $169.95 | 8. Blue Bungalow scarf $29 | 9. Red Phoenix Emporium earrings $42 | 10. Sacha Drake gown $299 | 11. Witchery dress $169.95 | 12. Siren flats $129.95 @ Style Tread | 13. Tony Bianco heels $149.95 @ Style Tread
I may like red but you may be more of yellow, pink or aqua kind of accent girl. Whatever your colour poison, the easiest way to incorporate it is to work it in from a base of this season’s hot monochrome trend.
You may need more workwear pieces than casual. Substitute out a mix of pieces to suit YOUR lifestyle.
I’ve been quite restrained with the accessories here. I don’t know who I am either. You can get more inspiration here and I fully approve the wearing of more accessories. Always.
Likewise with shoes, a pair of flats and a pair of heels in neutral tones will see you through the season but, of course, there is always room for one more pair.
