The best summer capsule wardrobe consists of all the essentials you need for the season. It’s all about pieces that you can mix and match while creating a different look each time. When out shopping, keep in mind that you need good-quality pieces that are versatile enough to be worn with other items more than the regular amount of times.
We found six staple pieces that we think every woman needs in her capsule wardrobe this summer.
1. The Trusted Tunic
Opt for a printed tunic. This can be worn on its own, over jeans, with a kimono over and even with a tee underneath. The options are endless!
2. The Simple Tee
The simple tee isn’t doesn’t have to be simple all the time. You can wear it underneath a cami or a dress to give it a fresh new look, or simply under a kimono or jacket.
Top tip: Jeans or a skirt work well with a tee in summer.
3. White Jeans Wonder
Everyone needs a pair of white jeans for summer, it’s so versatile and it looks fresh and fabulous.
4. Printed Kimono
The summer kimono is the one piece you need to uplift almost any outfit. Throw it over a pear of jeans or wear it as a tunic style dress this summer.

Besides the pop of colour, a pleated skirt is ideal for the summer and you can dress it down with a simple tee or a cami.

A cami is quite versatile; it can be worn over a tee or under a jacket or kimono. Find one with added details like lace or tie-up details for your summer wardrobe.
