I have really enjoyed wearing outfits in my own Summer capsule wardrobe! I included several of my favorite basic essentials, plus added a few pieces that are new to my closet. Mostly all the pieces in my Summer capsule wardrobe are classic styles, like tanks, tees and tailored shorts. They are also in a neutral color palette with black as the base color and soft blue as the only accent color. I experimented with my own capsule wardrobe this Summer, which is a French Riviera style, influenced by French Minimalist and Coastal Vibes styles.
A color combo I have been especially drawn to this Summer is black and tan! These two neutral colors go with everything in my capsule wardrobe. I can even wear these colors into the Fall season so they are great transition colors.
For size reference, my height is 5’9″ and I weigh approximately 165 lbs. For tops, I typically wear a size Medium (10) or Large (12), depending on the brand and fit of the top (for slim-fit, I usually wear a Large). For bottoms, my normal size is a 10 OR a 30/31 waist, a 10-inch high rise fits my waist the best and a 28 inch inseam comes to my ankle. My shoe size is 9 medium or 40EU.
The outfit I’m wearing has been one of my favorites this Summer! It includes the Talbots Pima Bateau-Neck Black Tank (size Medium), the Quince European Linen Wide Leg Pant in the “driftwood” color (c/o) (size Large, comes in other colors) and Nisolo Catalina Slide Sandals in “black” (c/o) (size 9) (use code CLASSYYETTRENDY for 20% off). I completed the outfit with the Madewell Piazza Bucket Bag in “black” (c/o) (currently on sale), Brighton Silver Hoop Earrings (I have had these for years), Le Specs sunglasses and Kendra Scott Fern Necklace and Grayson Silver Cuff Bracelet.

Let’s talk about these Quince European Linen Wide Leg Pant in the “driftwood” color (c/o) (size Large)…I LOVE them! I love the soft material and wide elastic waist with the drawstring in the front. The “driftwood” color is a lovely tan color and the hem of the leg falls just below my ankle. Quince is a sustainable company and offers luxury that lasts for a fraction of normal retail prices. They have garments made of cashmere, leather, silk, and organic cotton. And, they have free shipping, free returns, and a 365 day return policy.
I love this Talbots Pima Bateau-Neck Black Tank (size Medium) so much that I bought it in the black, white and navy colors! I have the black and white colors in my own Summer capsule wardrobe. I like that it is similar to a sleeveless top and does not cut in too much from the shoulders.
I have worn these Nisolo Catalina Slide Sandals in “black” (c/o) use code CLASSYYETTRENDY for 20% off (size 9) many times this Summer and love the crisscross strap style! They are comfortable to walk in with the cushioned memory foam insole. I have enjoyed wearing items from Nisolo, not only for their beautiful styles, but also because they are making a different in the fashion industry. Nisolo, founded in 2011 by Patrick Woodyard, has one simple mission: “to push the fashion industry in a more sustainable direction.”
One of my favorite handbag brands is Madewell. I have been wearing Madewell bags since I first started blogging in 2014! I recently added this Madewell Piazza Bucket Bag in “black” (c/o) to my closet. It is surprisingly lightweight and is a great crossbody bag to wear when you are out shopping or traveling. It is a full leather bag with a cinch closure and has an interior pocket. It comes in black and two other colors.
What are some of your favorite Summer pieces to wear?
