Capsule Wardrobe Spring 2022

Capsule Wardrobe Trends For Spring 2022

Several trends are showing up this spring. Wide leg trousers have followed through from the winter, as have the oversized styles. In colour, lilac and white are huge, alongside the opposing camps in neutrals neon. 

If you want to build a timeless capsule wardrobe, I would avoid the neon trends. There are a lot of oversized neon suits around at the moment, and whilst they look vibrant and wonderful on, they will date very quickly, likely within a year. 

Trends to consider this spring that will enhance a capsule wardrobe and help create timeless outfits include;

  • Neutrals
  • White
  • Possibly lilac if it fits within your current palette (lilac suits those of a cooler skin tone). 
  • Wide leg trousers
  • White cotton dresses
  • White jeans
  • Neutral tailoring
  • Monochromatic trends
  • Floral dresses that come in under the bust (this style is best for most body shapes).

The Neutral Capsule wardrobe

Neutrals work well in a capsule but are not exclusive. Many people who build a capsule wardrobe build one solely consisting of neutral colours. Essentially you can create a timeless collection of clothes in any shades as long as you limit the colours, make sure they mix and match easily and ensure they suit you.

This season’s return of the neutrals means it is the perfect opportunity to start building your capsule wardrobe if you want to make these shades a large part of what you include. Neutrals work well as the canvas colours in your capsule or as a whole because they mix with other colours seamlessly. Click on any of the images to see where to buy. 

Sustainable Choices

Making sustainable fashion choices is essential. For many years I have made eco choices in my home, in what I eat, how I dispose of items and what I buy. However, more recently, I have decided to do the same with what I wear. Some of you may be on a strict budget, so the organic and new sustainable options may be a little out of your reach. If that is the case, consider apps like Vinted and Depop for preloved clothes, which are likely better quality and cheaper than buying new ones.

Alternatively, if you want to buy new, consider sustainable. Choices can relate to how the garment was made, the running of the factory, how it was transported, or the materials used to make it.


Monochromatic Outfit Blends

The monochromatic trends follow on from winter. The idea is to wear an outfit of the same colour that you do not try to match but rather blend. For example, let us say you’ve chosen a classic neutral – beige. You might decide to team a beige suit with a satin beige blouse or shirt. The key is not to look like you are trying to match shades of the same colour but rather to blend them. An excellent way to achieve this is to choose different fabrics and textures because the light will hit them differently, creating the blend.

The monochromatic trends this summer tend to be in pastel or neutral colours.

White Spring Trends For 2022

White is also huge this summer and perfect for a capsule wardrobe. The two main areas seeing a trend are white cotton dresses and straight leg white jeans.

Straight leg trousers tend to suit more body shapes than skinny, so this is a welcome trend.

Low waisted suits very few people, and high waisted is excellent to make your legs look longer but can, in some instances, make your torso look short. If you are unsure whether to go for high, low or medium waisted, go for medium waisted to be safe.

A white cotton dress teamed with simple black, or cognac accessories can be the perfect addition to a capsule wardrobe. If white does not work for you, look at ivory or cream options for a similar look. Neutral accessories tend to work best.

Capsule Closet Success testimonials

'When you join the membership it isn't generic it is tailored to your needs. Michelle considers each individual person and provides advice and guidance based on their needs. I have learnt so much since I joined I feel like I could sit an exam on it now! Honestly, without a doubt if you feel like you are lost with what to wear, you don't know what suits your body shape or your shape has changed, you've lost confidence, you're starting a new job, or you want to minimise your wardrobe, Michelle's membership is without a doubt for you. You can not get better for the price, I have looked!'
I joined Michelle's facebook "capsule wardrobe challenge" in June 2020. I loved her approach of starting off with a concept of what colours and styles you were attracted to, followed by what your lifestyle required functionally. It helped me assess my existing wardrobe with a checklist in mind instead of feeling overwhelmed and indecisive. I found the video format and weekly check-ins easy to follow and explained each stage of building a capsule well. She has been quick to answer any queries I have and to offer her professional stylist's opinion with a gentle manner. I am most grateful for Michelle's overarching aim to help her clients "find their happy place". This membership is about being comfortable in your own skin, not about being super fashionable, and that is exactly what I needed. Thank you for helping me find my confidence again. 😊
There is no doubt in my mind that having a personal stylist online is worth the investment. In fact, at the end of the day I will spend considerably less while looking and feeling so much better. Why? Because I will never again mindlessly spend and spend and spend on clothes that just aren’t right for me and that don’t make me happy. I think we all dream of that wardrobe that makes us happy and confident, but it is so easy to just give up and just wear something. I know I did. And that is just plain crazy because I love clothes! I have always been attracted to styles that I lacked the confidence to try out. Now, with the help and guidance of Michelle, I can finally explore those styles with confidence knowing that whenever I run an item by Michelle, she will give me her honest feedback on whether or not it will fit with my colors and with how I want to look and feel. In short: Michelle’s advice really is priceless. I feel an A-lister in the garments I have purchased since becoming a member! Pssst: One secret, you don’t have to become a minimalist if you don’t want to. Michelle is not about legalistic minalism, she is all about you finding out what works for you and that – along with her very deep knowledge of style – is why I think her membership works for me when in the past nothing else has.
