What is a Capsule Wardrobe?

A capsule wardrobe is a small collection of pieces that can be mixed and matched to create many outfit combinations. Some people like to create seasonal capsules, while others plan a capsule wardrobe for a vacation in order to save room while packing.

This travel capsule wardrobe contains twenty pieces. This includes all clothing, shoes, accessories, and jewelry. Below you’ll find 14 outfit combinations, though there are even more possibilities.

This capsule is based on going somewhere warm where you will probably spent sometime at the pool or beach. There are casual daytime outfits and more dressy options.

A lot of times capsule wardrobes will have a color palette for easy mixing and matching. Usually these color palettes will have a base of neutrals with accent colors for interest. This capsule includes navy and white as neutrals and light blue and gold as accents. 

A quick note – 

I did include four pairs of shoes here which might be a bit extra. However, I did include a pair of flip flops in this, which I included more for beach/pool days. Obviously this is all to your own discretion, and if you can manage with only one or two pairs of shoes, go for it.

I’ve linked all of the items under the first photo they appear in. However, if it’s easier you can shop everything at the bottom of the post by clicking the picture of the item you like.

The Outfits

I started this travel capsule with four base outfits, and from there branched off and created ten more outfits. The thing is, there are even more outfit combinations! Get creative and mix and match!

Here you’ll find outfits for days exploring, beach trips, and nights out.
