My 30-Piece Spring 2024 Classic Casual Neutral Capsule Wardrobe In My Closet


See everything in my own capsule wardrobe, which includes tops, bottoms, layers and shoes, in mostly neutral colors. My capsule wardrobe is based on the Simplified Style®: Classic Casual Capsule Wardrobe. I’m showing everything in my own personal capsule wardrobe in my closet, here on the blog.

For those of you that follow the Classy Yet Trendy blog, you know that I have been using a capsule wardrobe in my closet for several years. I absolutely love using a capsule wardrobe every season, as it helps me get dressed quickly and easily everyday. A capsule wardrobe is a small set of clothes and shoes, which all mix and match, so you can have dozens of outfit combinations ready to wear. Using a capsule wardrobe lets you focus on more important things in your life and takes the stress away from getting dressed.

My full-time job is administering Classy Yet Trendy, as the sole person who does everything while working at home. Since I work at home, I like to wear elevated-casual styles like jeans and casual pants, tops and layers. My job everyday consists of: working at my desk, doing photo sessions of clothes and shoes, moving about creating flatlays for Instagram, etc., so dresses and skirts are not feasible for my work-week lifestyle. On Sundays, I do wear skirts and dresses to church, in addition to wearing outfits from my capsule wardrobe since we all dress casual at our church.

Living in Alabama, our Spring season temperatures fluctuate, averaging from the 60’s and 70’s during the day to the 40’s and 50’s at night. One day it can be warm and the next will be cool, so my capsule wardrobe needs to have a mix of sleeve lengths and layers.

I created my all-neutral capsule for my closet based on the women’s Simplified Style®: Classic Casual – A Year-Round Foundation Capsule Wardrobe. In Simplified Style®, there are 400+ outfit combinations for the entire year, capsulea for all seasons, outfit calendars and more!

My Color Palette

For this Spring 2024 season, I chose Black as the base color for my capsule wardrobe. I chose black as my own personal preference, so if you are referencing this post to create your capsule wardrobe for the season, feel free to use your favorite neutral base color (other base colors can be navy, charcoal, brown, etc).

This month I’m experimenting with Navy as an accent color! While I don’t like to mix both Black and Navy in one outfit, I do enjoy wearing navy, so I added two items in the Navy color.

The capsule wardrobes I share from my own closet every season are clothes that I have in my own closet and is my personal style. Everyone has their own personal style as well as color preference in clothes and may be based on the weather where you live, so your wardrobe may be different from mine. You are welcome to use my capsule wardrobes here on the blog as inspiration for creating your own! While I don’t have a guide of outfits for my own personal capsule wardrobes, feel free to follow along on my Instagram account @classyyettrendy, where I share outfits I wear from my capsule wardrobe throughout the season, as well as outfit collages and outfit ideas!

If you need a complete wardrobe for the season, then you may enjoy using one of my “ready to wear” capsule wardrobes in other styles available in the Capsule Wardrobe Store!

Since my favorite colors are mostly neutrals and blue, I chose those colors for my color palette!

My own capsule wardrobe from my closet…

What Is My Personal Style?

My first and foremost favorite style is “Classic” with a bit of “French Minimalist” style, which may include solid color tees, button-down shirts, casual pants, jeans, cardigans, denim jackets, loafers, mules and flats. What is “classic” style? Classic style includes timeless designs that stand the test of time, never go out of fashion and are mostly solid, neutral colors. I love the simplicity of classic styles and I enjoy wearing this style the most. I create French Minimalist capsule wardrobes every season…see them here!

How Did I Create This Capsule Wardrobe?

I created my own capsule wardrobe for my closet based on my best-selling capsule collection, Simplified Style®: Classic Casual Capsule Wardrobe. I also followed the 4 steps in my blog post, How To Start A Capsule Wardrobe: An Easy 4-Step Visual Guide to create my capsule.

What Is In My Capsule Wardrobe?

Here’s everything in my own Spring 2024 Classic Casual Capsule Wardrobe. For my own capsule wardrobe, I included 30 tops, bottoms, layers and shoes.


When I create a capsule wardrobe, I select my tops first, but you can also start building your capsule by choosing bottoms or shoes first! Here is my capsule wardrobe on the clothes rack in my studio room.

I have 7 bottoms in my capsule wardrobe, pants and jeans. Since I work from home, I dress casually and wear jeans and pants. For my jeans, I prefer soft, stretchy jeans that hold their shape, to bend and move in them easily while I am up and about working or sitting at my desk.

  1. I can’t wait to start collecting these pieces!! Also, where did you get your clothing rack?? It’s so chic!!

  2. Jen,

    I bought the flats in my usual size 9 and they fit true to size. I have another pair of beige non-woven flats from two years ago and they are also a size 9. 😀

  3. Deanna,

    My clothes rack is from Pottery Barn several years ago. It was from their Emily & Merrit collection. 😀

  4. I love this collection. What puzzles me though is why you call the base color black. I think tan or light blue would be a more accurate description. I have purchased one of your capsules in the past, but since I don’t wear black or navy I have been trying to figure out what the purpose or function of the base color is since I have to swap those items out for a different color in my own wardrobe. I would love more explanation of the principle behind the base color. Thanks so much!

  5. Hi, If you don’t mind me asking, what size and length do you have in the ‘Magical Pants’ from Quince? I think we’re about the same!
