If you’ve been around here for a while, you already know how keen we are on the concept of capsule wardrobes—a closet full of items that can be mixed and matched with one another for an infinite amount of combinations and a permanent fix to your “I don’t know what to wear today” conundrum.

Memorial Day weekend is upon us, which means that the beginning of summer is officially commencing, and this year, we’re picturing it being full of a lot more lake days, Farmer’s Markets, and barbecues than last year—which means we need to be ready to get dressed again. Luckily, looking good and being ready for anything doesn’t have to be rocket science; instead, you can just rely on a classic set of pieces that can be dressed up or down to make them appropriate for any occasion.

Whether you’re easing back into wearing clothes again or are preparing to leave the house every day of the week for the next three months, our 2021 summer capsule wardrobe will take you there in style.
