A Wardrobe Remix with Capsule Wardrobe Essentials
As the days go warmer, it's time to create a capsule wardrobe plan for your summer wardrobe capsule. What will you be wearing as spring gives way to summer?
Do we need to squeeze in time for a wardrobe remix before it gets too hot?
Wardrobe Remix Quiz
In the video below, I have created a brief wardrobe remix quiz to help you decide if one will be necessary. I recommend capsule wardrobe evaluation at the end of every season to make sure you have all the essentials in place before the next season begins.
Your budget will determine the size of your summer wardrobe capsule (or any season's) but each capsule should have at minimum, 6-10 pieces in colors and styles that mix and match well. And the primary requirement is that it expresses your signature style and does it well.
I have been blogging this spring about my own wardrobe remix adventures and will continue sharing my experiences with my summer capsule wardrobe this summer.

Getting Started on Your Wardrobe Remix - Planning Your Summer Capsule Wardrobe
Start Small as You Build Your Summer Capsule Wardrobe
You can start with as few as six pieces and build your wardrobe capsule from there, adding on whenever your budget allows.
(1) One 3/4-sleeve cardigan
(2) One maxi dress or skirt
(3) Two tops
(4) Two pairs of pants
(5) A few accessories that go with all six pieces
When you are ready add up to four more pieces to complete your summer capsule wardrobe. Click here for ideas on how to create 30 days of outfits with only 8 pieces.

Technically, the Dresses and Skirts has not yet started as of the time of this writing, but I have been deep in preparation for it, and because I will wear only dresses and skirts, have been road-testing my choices, already.
I am still amazed at how much I have learned about my own signature style just by participating in these wardrobe challenges that have lasted at least 30 days each! Because of them, I have been able to fill my closet with things that I love.
Listed below are several 30-day wardrobe challenges you can try, including the Dresses and Skirts challenge I created...
I write a personal style article each month for Hope for Women magazine and thought a couple of them might provide additional help in creating a summer capsule wardrobe.
