Pack For Paradise | 23 Resort Casual Capsule Wardrobe Outfit Combinations

I just test-drove my Resort Casual Capsule Wardrobe for a long weekend in Palm Springs, CA. If you pack the same 10 pieces, including shoes and accessories, you can mix and match to make 23 different outfit combinations. From the plane to the pool, to the party you’ll always have the right thing to wear. Pin and save this 23-page lookbook with all the outfit combinations. Recreate this resort casual capsule wardrobe now with my unique high-low round-up of all the best versions of the pieces on the packing list.

All of the key pieces I pick for my capsules have high-low options so you can decide when to splurge and when to save. With all the mix and match you know you will wear all of the pieces in the capsule a lot. This allows you to cherry-pick more expensive pieces like a designer handbag or premium jeans you’ve had your eye on and that you’ll wear all year. The designer brand items can also provide inspiration for you to get the look for less with my #designerinspired finds for you. Ultimately if you stick to my list and buy what you love you can’t go wrong.

The grand total for all the options in the first capsule would be $7139, but you can make as many simple high-low swaps as you need and still get the same pieces in the second set for only $757 including shoes and accessories.

Curate your own capsule with these high-low swaps.

I’m drawn to bright colors, especially in the spring and summer, however, soft pastels and jewel tones can give off a coastal vibe too. Whether you want to add jewel tones to your capsule wardrobe or prefer a monochromatic capsule wardrobe, this post will give you tips on choosing a color story.
