The Outfit: building a wardrobe - capsule inspiration

summer and spring

During the warmer months I've always been into white and blue. They're just my favourite colour combination and if I had to I would gladly wear just those two till the end of times. There's something really fresh and airy in that colour combination and it always reminds me of Greece's blue skies, white houses and turquoise ocean. Perfect for summer!
Although I want to streamline my wardrobe and am currently quite good at controlling myself to NOT buy any more dresses, shoes and oh so cute shorts I love to browse online shops to gather inspiration. And this year it's all about stripes, airy shapes and clean lines. If you want to know where all the pieces above are from simply click here to hop over to my corresponding polyvorecollage.

The Outfit: building a wardrobe - planning the capsule

(source: 1, 2 & 3)
At the beginning of January I told you all about choosing the right colours for your capsule wardrobe (read about that here!). During the colder months I wear a lot of warm autumnal colours like burgundy red and dark green. Now it's slightly getting warmer and we're really moving into spring, so I start to think about the colours and items I will wear during spring and summer and slowly transition my wardrobe from cold to hot weather.
steps of capsule planning
  • browse pinterest - get to know which style and items you like
  • search your favourite online stores - gather pieces in a collage, either print or polyvore
  • get an overview of which pieces you already have from previous years
  • let your ideas rest for a while!
  • get back to your inspiration and really think about all the pieces - it will be the capsule of your whole season, so you got to be quite sure about them
  • buy needed pieces and put together your new capsule
  • transition spring items into your winter wardrobe and slowly switchover the whole wardrobe
