A sustainable spring closet is something that is an important part of our whole Capsule closet. It’s very personal and can be different depending on every person’s choice. More or less we all have a kind of closet we like to keep repeating, having it sorted makes our daily struggle easier.
Having a spring closet makes it convenient to create a minimal wardrobe for maximum wear. Also, it helps to analyze our personal style and helps to avoid impulse buying. For me spring closet is, using my basic bottoms and top pieces with light layering, mostly a mix of winter and summer closets. For some of us, it can be different when it comes to the choice of silhouettes. But there’s always something that works as a primary piece of clothing which we like to pair things with, it can be a pair of jeans or a basic tee.
I’ve been trying to create a capsule closet for the past few years because it takes mindful investment to build it from scratch. Also, I believe in thrift and vintage shopping which makes creating a capsule closet a little convenient.
I’ve created this basic but very wearable capsule closet chart which can be helpful to one as a guide. For the top, a basic white tee and black tee, white and black /grey cami are a must for me. Also, having a basic sturdy cotton white shirt and a black silk shirt works for the dressier days. I love to style my shirts layered with jumpers. I live in a tropical place where it’s hardly even chilly that’s why I like to invest in a few cashmere jumpers, I have them in the color black and beige. People living in colder regions can also go for wool jumpers instead of cashmere for warmer layering. Having a basic polo neck is a must-have essential for colder places even in springtime. I wear it when I have to travel in the north and it’s totally worth every single penny. I love to wear cardigans as well, I think they are such fantastic pieces to layer and look very feminine and chic. I love this beige cardigan from Arket and this one from weekday. For the bottoms, I like to have at least two tailored pants like these pants in beige and black. I prefer pants over jeans because one, they look more dressy and two they are comfortable to sit and work in, and three they can totally work for a day to night look with slight changes. I also have jeans for more casual looks, I feel keeping a pair of black and a pair of nice blue jeans are enough. I’ve also been eyeing these black jeans from ASOS sustainable line and these from Girlfriend denim. For outerwear, a nice trench coat in the beige/black is really a staple, it’s really easy to layer and makes it look more polished. For a more high-end finish, I love Burberry’s trench forever a classic. Although it’s on a very pricey side but preloved Burberry trenches are available at a very decent price at vintage stores. Now for the shoes, white Vegan veja or Adidas’s vegan sneakers, black 70’s sneakers and chunky high sneakers from converse are very versatile to style and comfortable as well. In essential jewellery pieces, I go for basic gold hoops or a pair of vermeil hoops, a dainty necklace chain/vermeil alternative and a ring/ vermeil alternative. For dressier occasions, I love to add a watch /watch or bracelet with my outfits. For a more casual look and utility, I carry a canvas tote bag but crossbody bags will be suitable for a more polished look. And I’ve been loving Jo Malone’s fragrances, really light and flowery. I’ve been eyeing Le Labo’s perfume and hopefully, try it soon.
This is how I’ve been planning and developing my spring capsule closet and I’m really satisfied with what I’ve come up with so far. Getting ready has gotten really easy and sorted. I hope this sustainable guide helps you all as well. Let me know in the comments, what are your essential pieces for the spring capsule closet.
