Written by KATERYNA LAKOMOVA

Creating a summer capsule wardrobe can be a great way to simplify your morning routine while making the most of your closet space. If you are wondering where to start, we've got you covered. We have compiled a comprehensive list of the most trendy summer essentials for women that are versatile, functional, and stylish. These items range from a basic t-shirt to a chic blouse and are perfect for any occasion, whether a casual day out or a formal evening event. With your ultimate capsule wardrobe checklist in hand, you can mix and match these pieces to create countless stylish outfits throughout the season.

No more staring at your wardrobe every morning, wondering what to wear! You'll have various options to choose from, and you'll look fabulous no matter what you choose. So, grab a pen and paper, and let's go through the checklist together.

How to Build a Summer Capsule Wardrobe 

To build a functional and unique summer capsule wardrobe, it's crucial to follow three simple steps that can make the process a lot easier. 

  • The first step is to declutter and free up space by getting rid of anything that you no longer need or wear. Don't hold onto items that are worn, damaged, or don't fit anymore. You can either donate, sell, or discard them. Trust us, you'll feel much better with a decluttered wardrobe.
  • Next, it's essential to plan what you need to add to your capsule. Create a capsule wardrobe list of summer must-haves that can be easily mixed and matched. This way, you'll have a better idea of what to shop for and what you can skip. 
  • Finally, organize your capsule wardrobe essentials for summer. Use a color palette or clothing type as a guide to make it easier to pair different items. This way, you'll be able to quickly pick out an outfit without any hassle.

Light Jeans

Light jeans have been making a comeback in the fashion world lately and are currently a popular trend. They are an excellent option for those hot summer days when you want to stay comfortable and cool. In particular, baggy jeans are a great choice, as they provide plenty of room for air to circulate and prevent you from feeling too stuffy. If you want to add a pair of baggy jeans to your wardrobe, we recommend checking out the Relaxed baggy jeans AYLA by Citizens of Humanity, which feature a relaxed fit and a slightly tapered leg.

Versatile Tank Top

Get it, and you will never be without a casual option any more, as this top is suitable for any possible laid-back outfit. The Ribbed tank top by Erika Cavallini is our choice due to its high-quality material and modern design.

Linen Shirt

A linen shirt is a versatile must-have for any wardrobe, especially on hot and sunny days. The white Long sleeve linen shirt by 120% Lino is a great option that can be easily dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

It's important to choose clothing that keeps you cool and comfortable even in the brightest sunshine.

This tee is made from thin and refined cashmere that is light and comfortable on the skin, and its fine-knit texture makes it breathable and perfect for hot summer days.

When the scorching heat is making it unbearable to step outside, a comfortable and airy outfit is a must-have. To keep yourself cool, we recommend wearing a linen short and voluminous top that lets your skin breathe freely without any restrictions. The Linen Strap Top crafted by House of Dagmar is an excellent choice for this season, thanks to its relaxed yet stylish vibe.
