If you want to cut back on closet clutter, then building an intentional and smart wardrobe is key! And a great way to do that is to build seasonal wardrobes so you can be dressed appropriately for the changing weather. With spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to put together a smart spring closet. Here are some tips on how to build a spring wardrobe capsule that will help you create your own just right for you!
Pick Weather Appropriate Pieces
First off, before you start building your spring wardrobe capsule, you need to ask yourself what kind of weather your area usually experiences in spring. Is it still cold? Is it rainy? Is it warm? Is it breezy? Knowing what type of temperature and weather will help you figure out what types of clothing to include in your closet.
Pick Your Favorite Colors to Wear
It’s time to be honest with yourself! Take a look at your closet and see what colors you have a lot of. What colors do you love wearing? What colors make you feel confident and alive? Now, keep in mind that spring is a lighter season so you won’t want to be wearing dark browns, dark reds, and colors that scream fall or winter. So reach for colors that are lighter, brighter, and happier. But pick colors that you feel confident in. Once you figure out what colors are your favorites, then pick a color scheme and build your wardrobe around your colors. The goal is to choose clothing that can be mixed and matched. When you have a common color scheme, many of your pieces will look good with each other.
Pick Staple Pieces
You want to be smart with the pieces you pick for your closet. Choose clothing that can be mixed and matched, dressed up or down. Pick pieces that are versatile. You can have pieces with fun patterns, but make sure the majority of your wardrobe is basic and includes top-notch pieces that are staples in your closet. Examples of great staple pieces are: black leather jacket, black dress, chambray shirt, white shirt, black leggings, skinny jeans, white jacket, jean skirt, jean jacket, black shirt….all pieces that can be worn over and over and worn in many ways. And make sure to not skimp on quality…you’ll be wearing these pieces over and over all season. Spend a little more money to get great quality so they will last.
Make your closet interesting by adding fun accessories! Accessories take up little space compared to your clothing pieces so you can have a fun collection to add some personality and color to your capsule. Ideas for fun accessories include: scarves, earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces, glasses. Have fun with it!
Pick Versatile Shoes
Don’t forget about your footwear! Your shoes are just as important as your clothes. Choose shoes, sandals, and booties that you can wear in more than one way. Nude goes with basically everything! Collect a variety of footwear that you can wear dressed up, down, casual, fancy, exercise, and anything in between.
Use those simple steps to help you build a smart spring wardrobe capsule. Keep these tips in mind when you’re curating your closet and shopping for staple pieces. Be smart and intentional!
