Spring Capsule Wardrobe for Classic / Minimal Style

When I cleared out my closet last year to create a capsule wardrobe, I did my best to try to pick pieces that would work regardless of the season. 

In some ways, living in Scotland, where there isn’t much variation in temperature (it’s basically just cold and wet aaaaalllll the time…) makes this significantly easier, but I guess the other thing that helped simplify the process for me is the fact that my stile is what I like to think of as “classic” or “minimal” (you, of course, might have other words for it, but hey, let’s keep this friendly…). By sticking to classic styles and a muted palate of mostly neutral colours, I find it relatively easy to create a spring capsule wardrobe, in which quite a few of the pieces can still be worn into autumn and winter, with just a little bit of layering. 

(Here in Scotland, of course, I can also wear most  of them – yes, even including the outerwear – throughout the summer, too, but even if you’re fortunate enough to live in a place with actual seasons, you’ll obviously still be able to get use of things like the tshirts, dresses, and tanks, if not the coats and knits.)

My Spring capsule wardrobe doesn’t really change much from one year to the next, but I have updated this one for 2024, with the addition of things like the satin bias cut skirt, which has been everywhere this year, and the joggers, which are something it would never have occurred to me to include in one of my capsule wardrobe posts, but which – somewhat embarrassingly – have become a mainstay of my wardrobe ever since the school run became my main reason to leave the house every day. Ah, well…
