2023 Summer Capsule Wardrobe

2022 Executive Team Shopping List

1 | Oversized Blazer

A blazer is the best layering piece for a work wardrobe. This summer blazer styles are more relaxed and less structured, making them cool and comfy. All of these blazers have matching short or wide-leg pants sold separately.

2| Shorts or Wide Leg Pants

Shorts are stylish and cool. If you feel too exposed in shorts try a culotte or wide-leg pants instead.

Bonus Stylist tip– An open-textured stocking, like a small-scale fishnet, does a great job of camouflaging any skin imperfections.

These suits have two bottom options. If you wear tights, you can use both bottoms all year long.

3| Stretch Pants

These are great quality options with elastic waists I added in 2023.

4| Knit Tank

A thin knit tank like this can do double duty as a vest over a thin blouse but looks great as a simple top too. Here are some styles you add now in the spring of ’23 and wear all year.

5| Split-Neck Blouse

6| Shirtdress

You can add a classic shirtdress to dress outfits that will make you want to give up pants I shared here. Not only can this dress do double duty as a tunic over pants, but unbuttoned it becomes a triple threat as a jacket.

Here’s a 2023 Roundup of my favorite white shirtdresses. Get more flattering white dress links to shop HERE.

Bonus stylist tip– Straight silhouettes are more convincing as a tunic or jacket than A-line.

Monochromatic Match

Swapping or adding another knit tank to your capsule in a color that matches your bottoms to make a monochromatic match or twins with your top is just shopping smart. All of these knit tank tops come in more than one complementary color.

Double Duty Accessories

These are great designer brand investments. Because you can wear them at least two ways, it’s like getting two for one.

Reversible Tote

There is no better work bag for your buck than this. It even comes with a free zipper pouch.

Reversible Belts

Size down so you can wear it around the waist of your shirt dress or over your blazer too.
