A Summer Capsule Wardrobe in Earthy Tones

If you are about to go away and haven’t thought about what to pack, here is a done for you, Summer capsule wardrobe in this season’s earthy tones. There are only 11 pieces to pack, plus accessories to give you more than 2 weeks of outfits. For this smart casual capsule, I have included pieces that can be dressed up for evenings or worn more casually during the day. Although these pieces would easily pack into one carry on bag, they also make a great capsule to wear at home during the heat too.

I have included linen and silk pieces (roll when packing to minimise creasing) to stay cool in, but also to add a touch of luxury. When you are packing light, remember to add accessories so that you can change the looks. Pack your jewellery into one of the handbags to save space. With this capsule I have only included 2 pairs of shoes, but if you want to add another pair you can wear them to travel. For your travel outfit choose pieces that tone with the capsule and you can create even more outfit combinations. If shorts aren’t for you, swap them out for another skirt or pair of lightweight trousers.

The rolled clothes can also be packed into the basket and then into the case if you are taking it as carry on luggage. Alternatively if your case is going in the hold, use the basket as your hand luggage.

    This post came at exactly the right moment, as I’m packing today for a 3-week holiday and everything’s got to go into a small cabin suitcase. Took inspiration from this capsule wardrobe, flung a few things out that were not necessary and added more accessories. I’ve got shoes, handbags, sightseeing clothes and outfits for the evening, swimwear, and knits if it’s a bit chilly… Couldn’t have done it without you, Maria!
