It’s finally time: The summer months are here, and it’s time to refresh our closet for the new season. 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? No matter what you’re planning for the season, this summer capsule wardrobe will ensure that you have a perfect outfit for every occasion.

You might be searching for outfits to wear for fun vacations or adventures this summer, or maybe you just need a wardrobe reset for your usual activities. Capsule wardrobes are ideal for when you don’t want to have too many items in your closet but still want to be able to mix and match to create tons of different looks. 

The goal of this year’s summer capsule is to be able to put any of these pieces together and instantly look effortlessly chic. You’ll no longer have to spend lots of time searching through your closet for pieces that “go together”—instead, you’ll take comfort in knowing that you can throw on any of your capsule pieces for an outfit that will have you feeling your best. 

We’ve curated these pieces to include a mix of neutral pieces to make up a solid foundation, and then mixed in some statement, on-trend items for when you want to make a statement. You’ll find a few of summer’s hottest trends—such as fun colors, raffia, and linen, alongside classic denim and basic tees.

These 24 pieces will ensure that your closet always has the right elements to create an outfit for every activity on the agenda this summer. Scroll on to check out The Everymom’s capsule wardrobe for summer 2023:
