The Everymom’s Budget-Friendly Summer 2020 Capsule Wardrobe

While it’s true that summer is probably going to look a lot different this year, it is still coming, and that’s something worth celebrating! Warm weather, sunshine, and longer hours of daylight are all things to be excited about—and they all keep the kids playing outside longer, right?!

Maybe you’re searching for inspiration for outfits that we’ll wear when all of this is over, still getting dressed as usual for yourself (and the neighbors you pass on your daily walks, of course), or planning modified versions of these activities at home. Whatever the case may be, this summer capsule wardrobe will help you have a perfect outfit for every occasion—without hurting your wallet.

Capsule wardrobes are ideal for when you don’t want to have too many items in your closet but want to be able to mix and match to create tons of different looks. These 21 pieces will ensure that your closet always has the right elements to create an outfit for every activity on the agenda this summer.
