Minimalist Travel Spring Capsule Wardrobe | 10 Pieces, 9 Outfits


It’s Spring and a lot of us are starting to take vacations! When you travel, you want to pack as little as possible, but have lots of outfits to wear. It’s easy to do with a travel capsule wardrobe!

A few of you have requested a small travel capsule wardrobe that you can pack in a carry-on suitcase, so I created one with 10 pieces, which make at least 9 outfits. All the pieces are neutral colors, so you can mix and match them to create many outfits.

To find out more on how to build a travel capsule wardrobe, see this article here on the blog, “How To Build A Travel Capsule Wardrobe.”

If you love the idea of getting dressed quickly and easily everyday, save money by not continually buying clothes you don’t wear, I have a Foundation Capsule Wardrobe that will love! Several of the pieces in this travel capsule wardrobe are in the Simplified Style: Classic Casual Foundation Capsule Wardrobe, a complete year-round wardrobe for all seasons of the year!

What Suitcase(s) Do You Recommend?

My husband and I have this Calpak Black 2-piece Luggage Set. It includes a small carry-on piece and a large piece. We have had this set for about 5 years now and absolutely love using them! If you need just a small carry-on suitcase, this is the Calpak Single Carry-On Luggage.

I also have these similar Packing Cubes Set, which keeps all your things organized in your luggage.

Where Can I Wear This Travel Capsule Wardrobe?

When you are planning what clothes and shoes to pack, look to your destination first, then find out what the weather will be at your destination. This capsule wardrobe would be great to wear if you are going on a sightseeing vacation in the Spring. You have layers to wear if the temps are slightly cool, but you can remove them as the day warms up. I includes two pairs of shoes, comfortable sneakers and flats for walking. You can wear the flats with the skirt for an evening dinner for a slightly dressed up look.

These 10 basics will make 9 outfits! You may already have these pieces in your closet. If you are missing any, use the convenient shopping links below to add them to your closet!

How to Expand This Mini Capsule Wardrobe

You can expand this mini capsule wardrobe by adding more pieces! You could add pieces like a white shirt, ivory blouse, gray pants, tan pants, loafers or sandals. You can also add your favorite accent color pieces from your closet like a blush color top, green pants, blue cardigan or brown loafers.

My hubby and I are on our 2nd week of the Hello Fresh Delivery and LOVE it so far! It’s easy to use, convenient and healthy too! Just sign up for your first free box, make your meal selections for the week and select which day of the week you want them delivered (I select 3 meals a week, 2 servings each for my husband and me). When you receive your box, you put the pre-bagged ingredients in your refrigerator and lay the instruction sheets to the side. Then, when you are ready to cook them, just take the bag out of the frig, chop up the premeasured veggies, cook and you are ready to eat.

We eat low carb, healthy meals, so I choose those types from their vast selection of meals. For our first box, I chose the Pepita-Crusted Salmon with Tomato-Feta Salad & Harissa Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Paprika Chicken In A Lemony Sauce with Pistachio Rice & Roasted Carrots and Spicy Salsa Verde Turkey Tacos with Crema & Pico de Gallo.

We have already saved money so far, since Hello Fresh sends you just the right amount of ingredients for each meal, so there is no food waste. Click below to get YOUR FREE BOX and try it yourself!

Add Some Accessories

Add these accessories to your outfits for a chic and polished look! Add a scarf to not only add texture and color to your outfits, but to keep you warm if the weather is cool.

When I travel, my favorite bag to carry is a crossbody bag. It compact and secure, plus it keeps your hands free to sightsee, take pictures, shop, etc! This Italian Leather Quilted Crossbody Bag from Quince is just the right size, reasonably priced for real leather and I love the quilt texture.

Mix And Match Pieces To Create Outfits

All these tops, bottoms, layers and shoes will mix and match creating several outfits.
