I’ve never been one to embrace uniform dressing, although I admire those who do, like Anna Wintour. While I appreciate the ease of it, I like my wardrobe to have a little more variety. Almost as easy as a go-to uniform (but far more fun) is a capsule wardrobe. If you want to look current for spring but don’t want to spend a ton of time or money figuring out what you need to create fresh, new outfits for the season, a capsule wardrobe is your saving grace. And as I’ve done before, I put one together for you. This timing around, though, I’m leaning more toward classic than trendy.
The beauty of a classic-leaning capsule wardrobe is that it truly works for any age group. These outfits consist of elevated basics like blazers, floral-print dresses, and denim. I did my due diligence and found some of my favorite affordable pieces to create them with for you. So go ahead and dig through your existing wardrobe, and if you’re lacking in any pieces needed to re-create these 13 perfect outfits, consider the hard work already done for you. Scroll on to shop everything you need for a classic, ageless spring capsule wardrobe (and discover the outfits that can come of it).
