Spring Capsule Wardrobe

A Plus Size Spring Capsule Wardrobe

With the sun shining brightly and the daffodils peeping their heads above the soil, it really does feel that little bit more spring.   And with spring, comes a host of spring capsule wardrobe possibilities.

I know it is cold out there, and I know that wooly jumpers still reign supreme in our daily style, but I feel bright and optimistic for warmer days and lighter fabrics.

As regular readers already know, my capsule wardrobe experiment has been a resounding success and I’m determined to keep the minimalistic ideals that I have been following over the past month through to spring with me.

Yet there are a few items that I really do wear to death, and, as the weather warms, a few items that will be retired; my beautiful chunky knit from & Other Stories will simply be too warm for many days and so a very minor wardrobe refresh is in need.

Not to be frivolous, I have kept track of the items that I’ve worn a lot the past few months and noted down when I crave an item not currently in my capsule and wheedled this down to three items to see me through the transitional period.

The Blazer

I wear a blazer to death – quite literally.

I like them to make a statement, to be slightly oversized yet remain sharp in their tailoring.   I love to pair them with jeans and sneakers for a casual vibe, or tailored trousers and heels for workwear.

I will probably be unpacking a few of my old faithfuls but there is always room for a new in my life – especially as many of those I packed away in January are, perhaps, getting to the end of they shelf life.

The Day-to-Night Dress

A dress can be so versatile and versatility is exactly what I want from my spring wardrobe.

I crave a dress in a classic, timeless shape that can be worn year-round; paired with tights and knee-high boots in winter, natural tights and ankle boots in spring, and sandals & bare legs come summer.

I have spring travel plans, as well as a few spring parties, and so hope to make the most out of whichever piece I buy.

The Tailored Trousers

Like most of you, I spend more time working than not and denim isn’t always office appropriate.

A smart pair of tailored trousers that can be easily adapted for a range of occasions are staple to my wardrobe and, for spring, I’d like a little more vibrancy in this essential.    I’m drawn to vibrant colours or checkered patterns that will lift my spring capsule wardrobe from its winter gloom … I’m not sure which way I’ll lean yet, but be certain to keep an eye on this in the coming weeks.


What are you craving for the winter-spring transition?

    I haven’t had a blazer in ages as I’ve yet to find one which is casual enough to be comfortable x

    I love dresses that go from day to night. I must admit I’ve never worn a blazer before although I do love how smart they look.

    I sit here today, wrapped in four layers, still cold, and outside I cannot see beyond one metre because there is such a blizzard! So I would really love to dream of sunny spring days and less clothing on. I’m looking forward to wearing dresses again. I was browsing Next the other day and very tempted by some of their day dresses.

    I’m more than ready for spring to arrive, especially as I have so many blazers that I can’t wait to wear this year x

    I really the day to night dresses. I love that you can jazz up the same dress in a variety of ways and have something to suit you for almost all of your needs.
