A Basic (Stylish) Summer Wardrobe

May 10, 2011 at 3:39 pm 2 comments

I follow a blog called Small Notebook: “Learn how you can simplify your home, your finances, your family life, and your time.” About a month ago Rachel wrote a blog post entitled, Add Classic Style to the Small Wardrobe. She and her family are spending TWO MONTHS in Italy and she packed light! And all the sudden I decided I want a small wardrobe, all the time.

These are my ideas for a basic (yet stylish) summer wardrobe:

Bottoms – Capris or Shorts {3)

Denim, Khaki & Other Basic Color like Grey, Brown, Black or Navy

Tops/Blouses {4}

Think ruffles, ruching, embroidery . . . anything that would look a bit more dressy than a tee. 

Lightweight Cardigans {2}

Two Colors that Will Coordinate with MOST of Your Wardrobe

Tank Tops {5}

Basic Colors like Black, White, Grey, Brown or Navy plus Some Bold Colors/Prints

Dresses/Skirts {1 of Each}

Basic Color/Print that Will Coordinate with MOST of Your Wardrobe

Shoes {3}

Heeled Sandals, Flat Sandals, Flat Shoes in Basic Colors/Metallics

Handbag {1}

A Color that Will Coordinate with Your Entire Wardrobe  (Metallics/Nudes)


{2} Scarves :: {3} Necklaces

{2} Bracelets :: {2} Earrings :: {1} Ring

What would you add or take away?
