A Guide to A Holiday Capsule Wardrobe

Going on holiday is something that many of us have not been able to do over the past couple of years. Not only have prices of everything skyrocketed, but there has also been the extremely limiting pandemic that appears to be clinging on indefinitely. That being said, many restrictions have now been lifted, and you can grab yourself some great hotel and flight deals if you know where to look.

For some people, part of the fun of going on holiday is the chance to show off a bunch of new outfits. For a world that has gotten used to a uniform of sweatpants over the past couple of years, it is now time to get dressed up and go out.

This piece will offer you some inspiration for a holiday capsule wardrobe, so you can make the most of your outfits while you are away.

Think of the Weather

The weather should be a significant factor when considering what clothes you want to bring on holiday – that is, unless you plan on being indoors all day and night. 

Taking a look at the forecast in advance can give you a somewhat reasonable idea of what the sky might be doing when you turn up at your chosen destination. That said, you should also be prepared for the weather to be wildly different from what was forecast – always pack a poncho!

However, there are areas that stay relatively consistent. From March to September, Hawaii has the highest temperatures and the lowest rainfall. So, if that’s your bag, head over to Maui resorts for more information. 

On the other hand, if you are going somewhere notoriously cold, make sure to pack a coat instead of hoping that there will be a freak heatwave and vice versa. Bring a foldable raincoat for temperamental showers and some sturdy shoes if you plan to go hiking.

Use Complementary Colors

Using complementary colors is the best way to get a capsule wardrobe to look right. It means you can put any combination of top and trousers on and know it will look absolutely fine together. Using neutrals is a particularly easy way to do this, and then you can add a pop of color, known as accent colors. It would be best if these could also complement each other, but if you are only going to be using them as accent colors against a neutral base, it won’t matter. 

Bring Accessories 

Accessories are one of the easiest ways to mix up an outfit, and they often get overlooked when it comes to a capsule wardrobe. Bags, jewelry, scarves, and shoes can all completely change your whole look. When going on vacation, it is best to limit the bulky items such as shoes and focus more on the jewelry and bags that can be folded up – this can help greatly with your suitcase space! 

Do not forget makeup, hair accessories, and different styles either, as they can be transformative to any look too!
