Whether you’re looking to reduce the clutter in your closet or aiming to build up the perfect spring capsule wardrobe, we’re talking about how to maximize actual wear in classic styles as you curate your very own seasonal capsule wardrobe.
Based on Moore’s breakdown of three categories: tops, bottoms and outerwear — here are some sweet essential spring capsule clothing items — and where to get them.
This base layer will help set the tone for your look of the day. Choose styles that match your overall desired look — for example, if you’re more laid-back, go for an oversized tee. If you like the more polished look, go for a cap-sleeved tee like the ones below.

According to our Style expert, you can get away with just a couple classic style pants. Your bottoms compliment your tops and outerwear, but their not the star of the show. Don’t stress out about this section of your closet, and opt for simple items.
