2022 Summer Capsule Wardrobe Recap and Refresh
What’s New Under $100
1. Colorful Cami
You could get four of these for under $100. Layer this washable camisole top with adjustable straps under your wrap or oversized button-up.
2. Cropped Cardigan
Most of the new cardigan sweater styles we are seeing are cropped. These pair perfectly with a tiered white skirt that sits closer to your natural waist and meets and greets your twin set.
3. Brown Pants
#Trending. The washable linen-blend fabric and wide-leg fit make these the perfect pants for all-day fun. They come in petite and regular lengths so you can wear them with your platforms and white crochet top.
4. Metallic Block Heels
Next to nude, a metallic shoe is one of the most versatile colors you can own. This supportive and stylish sandal holds on to your foot with three soft straps and is the perfect heel height to wear all day with your jeans or a skirt.
5. White Dress
The famous counterpart to the LBD this fit and flare white dress is a summer style staple. Wear her to church with platforms and wrap or to the farmers market with your button-up over the top and a Panama hat.
6. Denim Vest
This is one of 6 jeans vests I own. I love it belted over dresses or a tiered skirt. The roomy armholes make it the perfect piece to put over a puff sleeve blouse.

7. Staw Bag
Doesn’t a straw bag just scream summer? I love the cross-body option this tiny tote offers. You can wear it with every outfit in your capsule wardrobe!
8. White Ribbed Tank
It’s a good idea to refresh all your white wardrobe staples each summer. A white tank works to create a flattering monochromatic base with white jeans or a tired skirt. Wear one with the jeans from my summer capsule to make the most popular outfit of all time.
9. Sleeveless Blouse
If your tank top and blouse got together and made a baby, it would look like this. Perfectly pretty on a hot day with your jeans or a white skirt.
10. Laceup sandals
When you want a dressy flat sandal this sweet style is a nice alternative to your Birkenstocks. Wear them with a skirt and a puff sleeve blouse or wear them to dress up a pair of jeans during the day.
11. Braided Belt
A braided belt is easy to order online because you can always adjust the size. I love the look through the loops of my favorite flare jeans and matching my platform sandals. You can even style it around your natural waist on top of your tiered skirt, like Charlotte from Sex in the City.
12. Smocked Top
A smocked top has that 70s vibe that runs through the summer capsule wardrobe. It’s so flattering with white jeans. This is one of my favorite prints from Kate Spade on sale now.

13. 70’s Inspired Sunnies
Quay does the best job of making quality designer-inspired sunglasses under $100. This tortoise pair is perfect with your entire summer capsule wardrobe.
14. Beachy Jeans
This perfectly distressed denim has a casual summer vibe. This super soft-style works great back to a puff sleeve blouse or crochet top. Slip them over your swimsuit and button-up that doubles as a swimsuit cover-up.
Size down in this super high waist style.
15. Anine Bing Tee
This luxe brand graphic tee is legendary and super soft. Messy tuck one into a tiered white skirt and keep the vibe casual with Birkenstocks as I did here in my Haute mama look of the day on Instagram.
16. No-Show Underwear
Wear these no-show panties under white skirts and jeans. These feather-light, anti-microbial, quick-drying air mesh thongs are perfectly designed for all-day wear and travel.
17. Large Square Scarf
I shared 30 ways to wear a square scarf in the summer on Instagram.
Add one to your summer capsule wardrobe and watch your outfits multiply. Wear it as a belt, in your hair, or carry it as a clutch.
18. Jean Shorts
For most of us, it gets hot in the summer. I found these light wash jean shorts from Paige fully stocked and more than 50% off. The 4.5″ inseam is a nice alternative to short shorts. Darling during the day with Birkenstocks and a crochet tank top or for dinner outside with a simple sandal and a puff sleeve top.
19. Stacking Rings
Stacking rings are fashionable and fun. This set is under $20. Wear them together next to a cool turquoise statement ring or spread them out for a daintier look.
20. White Lace Bralette
Let her peek-a-boo under your button-up or fill in some of the gaps under your crochet top.
