Creating Your Summer Capsule Closet
Capsule closets are the future of fashion. With concerns growing about the impact of the fashion industry on the environment, a capsule closet is a win-win. It gives you space to grow and experiment with fashion while being sustainable. At ANS, we’re the home of slow fashion and feminine designs.
Our small capsule collections are the perfect way to add a touch of Australian chic to your closet with versatile designs. We’re sharing our top picks for capsule closet essentials with four of our favourite dresses for summer. These capsule wardrobe outfits will see you through summer and beyond.
What is a capsule closet?
A capsule closet is a compact wardrobe that is made up of transitional pieces that you can wear in any season. It’s full of interchangeable clothing that works together to create dozens of outfits.
A dress is one of the best pieces you can add to your capsule closet as it’s easy to style with accessories like leather jackets, cardigans, and sweaters. Your summer dresses can be styled with sneakers for a casual look or stilettoes for a sophisticated look.
How to create a capsule closet for summer
The secret to creating a capsule closet for summer is to focus on transitional styles. You want clothes you can wear every season. Layering is the secret to taking a dress from summer to winter. You want a silhouette that can easily layer with other clothing, whether it’s tights, sweaters, or blazers.
Our ‘Hestia’ dress is one of our most versatile designs. Its luxurious cotton fabric makes it breathable for hot summer months, while the collared neckline can be buttoned or unbuttoned for a laid-back look. We’ll be wearing this dress with gladiator sandals in summer and knee-high boots in winter.
Every capsule closet needs a party dress. You want one that can take you from a picnic in the park to drinks with your girlfriends. The dress you can reach for on days when you’ve got a full social calendar.
‘Tara’ is the secret weapon and one of our favourite capsule closet essentials. It’s stylish without compromising on comfort. This timeless silhouette has a pleated halter neck and feminine floral fabric. Bring along a cardigan to wear when the temperatures drop or style with ankle boots and tights to transition your look through to fall and winter.
White dresses aren’t only for brides. Their understated glamour makes them the perfect choice for your capsule wardrobe outfits. A staple in our summer capsule closet is the ‘Rima’ dress. Its feminine and intricate design is romantic with its white bodice embroidery and lace detailing. Add a leather jacket for a laidback look or keep it classic with pearl jewellery and a sleek up-do.
No capsule wardrobe is complete without a touch of pink. Our ‘Ekaa’ dress is the perfect plus one for any special occasion. Its oversized bow detailing on the back of the dress adds seductive detailing. The ruffling across the front hem of the dress adds a whimsical feel to your summer outfit. Style with your signature stilettoes or a sparkly heel for a modern Cinderella moment.
