If you are looking forward to springtime as much as me, chances are you are getting excited for the switch of wardrobes too!

I have been wondering what exactly I should include in my spring capsule wardrobe and if there are any must-have core basics I should get ahead and invest in now. For those who are trying to achieve a condensed clothing collection, consider this blog post your definitive checklist for what you need! Shop core basics you need for a spring capsule wardrobe in 2022 below.
Core Basics You Need for a Spring Capsule Wardrobe
Tops: Spring Capsule Wardrobe
Although I firmly believe that these essential tops should be part of your capsule wardrobe all year round, if you are starting fresh or need to restock, I cannot recommend these pieces enough. A white tank top and t-shirt are just classic staples you should always keep on hand as they are easy to layer and incorporate into other looks. The same goes for a button up! There are so many different ways you can style this one piece and I adore this one from Everlane. The SKIMS bodysuit is a newly discovered wardrobe staple for me but I love how it conforms to my body so well.
Sweaters: Spring Capsule Wardrobe
I cannot get enough of sweaters!! Having a handful of cozy options within my wardrobe is a must because I love to wear them both relaxing at home and on-the-go. A neutral colored cardigan to throw over all your outfits is perfect to keep in you bag because you never know when you will need it. As far as trendy styles, the nautical striped knit top is both a covetable piece this season while also being more timeless, making it a great option for your capsule wardrobe. I also threw in my favorite hoodie from Alo!
Bottoms: Spring Capsule Wardrobe
These are just three pairs of bottoms but you can seriously get so much leverage out of these. The trousers adhere to that minimalist style but can also act as a great base for pairing with more statement tops. Of course, denim is always a necessity. This pair from Everlane is perfect in that it is a cross-over between slouchy and straight so they are flattering on the body and still on-trend. Lastly, say hello to your new favorite pants! These neutral joggers are so effortlessly chic and you can easily dress them up or down depending on the look you are aiming for.
Shoes: Spring Capsule Wardrobe
On to my favorite capsule wardrobe category – shoes! These have the power to make or break your outfit so choose wisely. For my spring collection, a pair of minimal sneakers for more relaxed outfits is a must. A comfortable pair of slides, like these Birkenstocks, will be ideal for slipping on and off and will make busy days much easier. I also like to keep a few more dressy pairs in my capsule wardrobe. First, a short pair of heeled sandals to elevate my everyday outfits. Secondly, a pair of heels I can wear for events and social soirees. Platforms were all over SS22 trends and this pair is serving sophisticated y2k vibes which I love.
