Summer Capsule Wardrobe: Key Staples to Wear this Season

Fashion Jackson Summer Capsule Wardrobe 2022 Womens Summer Capsule

A new season means a new seasonal capsule wardrobe, and I am beyond excited to share my 2022 summer capsule wardrobe with you all today! We kicked things off in the spring with my spring capsule wardrobe, and you guys loved it and shopped it so much, there was no way we couldn’t curate this next one.

I don’t discriminate against any season; there are particular clothing items that are special to each season and always have me looking forward to getting dressed. This summer capsule might be my favorite one to date though! Shop all the looks below or on the dedicated Summer Capsule Wardrobe Shop Page!

Real quick, though: if you’re not 100% sure exactly what a capsule wardrobe is or what items should be in a capsule wardrobe, here’s a brief refresher. A capsule wardrobe is a limited, meticulously hand-picked selection of versatile clothing pieces that can be paired together in an endless amount of combinations. Capsule wardrobes are often built with classic, timeless silhouettes and styles (read: no trendy, of-the-moment clothes here) and consist mainly of neutral colors like black, white, tan, gray, and maybe one or two seasonally appropriate colors for a special pop (in this case, blue!).

Creating a capsule wardrobe is a smart move for so many reasons. First, it saves you money because you’re not as tempted to go out and buy something new or trendy for every occasion that springs up. Second, it encourages you to dig into your creativity and put together new looks with staple pieces. Third, it cuts your “getting ready” time in half because you only have so much to choose from and know your spring capsule wardrobe color palette like the back of your hand!

All that said, I am sharing my personal summer wardrobe essentials for 2022 with you today. Whether you’re working from home or back in the office, a stay at home mom, a woman over 40 or 50, or just looking to update your wardrobe, I’m going to show you how to build a checklist for your summer capsule wardrobe and help you nail it! I can’t wait to see how you build your own summer capsule wardrobe using mine as guidance. Happy shopping and happy summer!

    Hello! I love this guide! Just wondering if you’d ever come wider taking actual photos of the outfits. It would be very helpful for replicating IRL Thanks!

      Hi Janelle! After the post goes live, I pretty much live in the outfits during the week and they can all be found on the Dailies!

    Could you please let me know what bra you recommend with the Anine Bing tanks. I recently purchased them and my normal racerback bra shows in the front. The tanks are cut more narrow in the front then other tanks.
    Thank you!
