Building my new spring capsule wardrobe is the first thing I like to do when preparing for the spring season—also, editing and cleaning all my clothes.
I can’t believe how time flies so quickly, and spring is almost here!
It is exhilarating to regularly change your clothes to boost your positive energy and make you feel fresh all the time.
So in this post, I will build a spring wardrobe for you but not the usual one with spring basics, and you will see later why it is different than other wardrobes that you see most of the time.
What describes this wardrobe is that it is trendy, comfy, and petite-friendly.
If you are a regular-sized woman, don’t worry, this wardrobe will work for you too!
I am already in love with Spring trends for 2021; it has very vibrant, cool, and comfy fashion pieces that will make you always look put-together.
P.S check out my petite-friendly spring trends post that you might like to wear.
What is a capsule wardrobe?
It is a concept of having a collection of clothes and accessories from head to toe that you wear daily and fit your body.
The capsule wardrobe contains around 25 – 50 items depending on your needs and budget.
Moreover, its primary goal is to have a collection of outfits that you can remix to have new outfits and styles to minimize your spending by not shopping unintentionally.
It is okay to start with few items, and then you can add pieces with time when you go shopping intentionally.
Two steps before building your spring capsule wardrobe
Do you always like to hang out or just chilling at home?
I assume that most of us spend time at home or friends’ homes during the pandemic.
Do you work online, or do you go to your office? What about the meetings, events, etc.
If you are an introvert or your lifestyle is mainly spending time at home, you need few comfy pieces, while if you are spending most of your time outside your home working or meeting people, you need an enormous collection of clothes.
2. Body shape
Choose the pieces that fit your body shape first, then choose what fashion pieces you want to wear accordingly.

3. Consider your Skin Undertone
Have you noticed that sometimes you wear specific colors that draw people’s attention, and you begin receiving many compliments about how you look radiant and beautiful?
It is because of the colors that you are wearing! And that is why it is essential to shop for any fashion pieces with colors that go well with your skin and reflect perfectly on your face when you wear them.
If you choose colors that don’t suit your skin complexion, you might look dull, tired, and not glowy.
Therefore, Choose your wardrobe clothes colors depending on your skin’s undertone color.

P.S It’s recommended that you stick with a color palette when choosing your clothes so that you can easily mix and match many pieces together.

What makes this spring capsule wardrobe different than the others?
I noticed that most capsule wardrobes include essential items that we have to purchase. We don’t have to buy basics every season because they are meant to last long enough in seasonality, quality, and styling.

This means that when editing your wardrobe, you can keep and recycle your basics such as denim jeans, tops, tank tops, pajamas, etc., and then you will add spring pieces that you would like to wear.

2. Denim skirt
3. Blue Jeans
4. Black or brown Ankle boot
5. White, black and striped tank top
