Warmer temps are here, which means it’s time to get your Summer wardrobe together! How do we do this? By investing in a handful of foundational pieces that you can mix and match together with other pieces that you already own in your closet.
Building a capsule wardrobe (vs. just buying a ton of new clothes) will allow you to have pieces that you can throw on at any time throughout the season, so you will always feel chic and put together. J. Jill is known for their versatile pieces, so if you’re ready to make a Summer Capsule Wardrobe, here are a few pieces that I’d recommend.
Gauzy Button-Up Tunic
One can never have too many button-ups, and the textured gauzy feel of this button up makes it perfect for Summer. Wear with your favorite denim (a white cropped white pair is a must!), or make it do double-duty as a cover-up for the beach.
Jeans have always been a Summer staple, and it’s something that won’t ever change! You can wear them almost everywhere, so it’s best to find a pair that’s comfy but still flattering, that works with both heels and flats, and are a medium wash. Pair with cute blouses, or a linen dolman tee and patterned kimono for a look that can take you from brunch to a night out with friends.
A-Line Shirt Dress
Having a go-to dress that you can easily dress up or down is a must-have for Summer, and this super soft shirt dress is perfect for that. The collar gives it structure, and the button-hem detail makes it different from the rest. Bonus? It has pockets!
Not really into jeans or shorts? Try a maxi skirt instead. They will still offer a lot of versatility in styling, but will also keep things comfy as well. Our favorite way to style is with a matching blouse (if available); just add a cool belt to help break things up!
When building your capsule wardrobe, think about the color palette that you want to work with so that you can invest in pieces that work really well together. It will make getting dressed so much easier!
