For those of you who work or who need a some smarter outfits, Summer days can be tricky. But I have put together a selection of mix and match pieces to create a mini capsule wardrobe. I have based it around a linen suit with a difference - this one has a sleeveless jacket. It makes it still smart, but contemporary too.
To the suit I have added a print blouse and then used the colours in the blouse for other pieces in the capsule. I have included a pair of cotton stretch trousers, floaty skirts in blue and soft yellow and two further blouses in green and ivory.
Only one pair of sandals are needed in a neutral. But of course you could choose an additional pair in blue, green or a neutral tan. I have chosen a block heel that makes them comfortable to wear but is a little smarter than a flat.
These eight pieces create 12 outfits worn with the jacket and more without. Add in just one more co-ordinating top for 4 more outfits.
If you would love a capsule wardrobe, but don't know how to start, use these tips to create your own version. I also have an online course that takes you step by step through creating a capsule wardrobe and a Capsule Wardrobe Membership.
