A capsule wardrobe is a wardrobe compiled of essential pieces of clothing – shirts, sweaters, pants and coats – that can, with the addition of other pieces of clothing and accessories, be worn year-long and easily interchangeable depending on the season. And summer is the perfect time to try a capsule wardrobe because the weather is amazing and you can put so many fun, interchangeable pieces into your wardrobe!
