Smart Casual Summer Capsule Wardrobe

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.

For this smart casual capsule, I have included pieces that can be dressed up for evenings or worn more casually during the day. Although these pieces would easily pack into one carry on bag, they also make a great capsule to wear at home during the heat too.

I have included linen and silk pieces (roll when packing to minimise creasing) to stay cool in, but also to add a touch of luxury. When you are packing light, remember to add accessories so that you can change the looks. Pack your jewellery into one of the handbags to save space. With this capsule I have only included 2 pairs of shoes, but if you want to add another pair you can wear them to travel. For your travel outfit choose pieces that tone with the capsule and you can create...
