I asked you on Instagram if you wanted me to share my capsule closet with you, and you answered a clear yes to that question. If you haven´t already, I recommend you read my post about how I got started with my capsule wardrobe.
I´ve only done the capsule thing since September 2017, so I´m still quite new to this. So far, spring has been the most difficult season to handle. Not in terms of knowing what I want to have in my spring capsule, but because the weather is so unpredictable in Sweden this time of the year. Until mid-April the temperature did not go above 10 degrees Celcius, and then suddenly the temp hit 20+ and has stayed there ever since. I feel that I´ve managed quite okay with my spring capsule, though. Here is how I´ve planned it.
Colors and fabrics
I´ve gone all in for light colors like beige, white, light blue and light grey. It just feels so right this time of the year. I focus on soft fabrics like modal, organic cotton and viscose. The most important rule when having a capsule closet is to make sure that as many items as possible go together. It will give you so many more outfit options.
Again, light colors and soft fabrics. From the left: Cheap Monday, Noumenon, House of Dagmar, Åhléns, Wunderwerk.
Coats and jackets
At the start of spring I really need a warmer coat, and by the end of it I pretty much need nothing at all. That´s why I have a flexible collection of coats and jackets for this season. From the left: Massimo Dutti, swapped coat from New York, trenchcoat by Tiger of Sweden, cork jacket from Ovide.
Having a solid base with neutral colors is a safe bet when working with capsule closets. However, it might tend to get a bit boring. My best tips for adding some fun features to your outfits are:
- Colorful socks – get inspired by my first days of spring outfit
- Colorful makeup, like a great eyeshadow palette, nailpolish or lipstick
- Accessories – I went for a bold choice and got a pair of red heels. They make every outfit feel like a million dollar!
- Play with the styling:
I hope this gave you some inspiration! What are your best tips for getting your capsule closet together?
