How to Create the Perfect Spring Capsule Wardrobe

How to make the perfect capsule wardrobe (1)

Don’t know what a capsule wardrobe is? Fundamentally, it is a minimalist approach to the things you keep in your closet. It’s trying to get more neutrals in your closet and less of those pieces that you can never seem to match with anything, besides that one skirt that you don’t even like that much. It will also help you save a little time and money by helping you figure out what you need to buy and skipping all the things that don’t really have a place for in your closet. At Gliks we have some items that are on trend, but are also basic essentials for the entirety of the spring season.

Capsule Wardrobe

To help you have the best spring capsule wardrobe possible, we found the 16 items that we think your closet cannot go without! For a little consistency we stuck to a color palette of about four different colors in various shades. However, many of these clothing items we listed come in a variety of colors and styles, so this capsule wardrobe can totally be adapted to fit your personal taste!

Fate Clothing Off the Shoulder Striped Top | Jack By BB Dakota Delle Flare Sleeve Top | Elan Clothing Fray Hem Button Front Top

There are four trends that are going to be very pronounced in 2018. These trends are off the shoulder, stripes, flare sleeves, and button ups. We found 3 shirts that incorporate all these trends, in a subtle but chic way. These shirts are lightweight so they will be perfect for warm days, or you can layer over them with a warmer jacket for the colder days.

Piko Tops V-Neck Short Sleeve Shirt | Lime N Chili Criss Cross Short Sleeve Top

Everyone needs a comfy throw on tee for the days that you do not want to try and put together the perfect outfit ( but in our opinion jeans and a tee is the perfect outfit 🙂 ). Plus, these tees will look great under your overalls, with your denim skirts, or with a denim jacket. We definitely recommend having a tee that has a looser fit and you feel totally comfortable in. You can dress the right basic tee up or keep it casual.

KanCan Jeans Flare Highrise | Flying Monkey Jeans Twist-Seam Hem Skinny Jeans | KanCan Jeans Distressed Long Overalls

We are so happy that flare jeans and overalls are making a comeback! These flare jeans by KanCan are highwaisted, making them a comfortable fit for everyday wear and they will pair effortlessly with your shorter cropped tops. Everyone needs a good pair of medium wash denim in their closet. We personally love the twist-hem step hem jeans from Flying Monkey and they have an ankle crop fit, which makes them perfect for showing off your strappy sandals! At Gliks we have an array of overalls to choose from, but black overalls leave you with a neutral base that will naturally match with anything in your closet!

DRESSES ARE A GIRLS BFFCapsule Wardrobe (4)

Piko Dresses Short Sleeve Swing Dress With Pockets Jack By BB Dakota Off the Shoulder Dress | Everly Clothing Striped Midi Dress

One of our favorite things about spring is that it finally is warm enough for dresses. These three dresses incorporate some of those hot trends like off the shoulder, ruffles, and stripes. The Piko dress is a casual dress that will be perfect to throw on whenever you need something simple. The Off the Shoulder dress by BB Dakota has a slightly fancier vibe but its jersey knit fabric makes it a comfortable fit for everyday wear. The striped pattern of the Everly Clothing Striped Midi Dress gives you a fashionable option with the perfect length, stopping just below the knee. The best part of all these dresses is that they can easily be dressed up or down to fit whatever occasion you need.

Elan Clothing Ruffle Shoulder Denim Jacket | Jack By BB Dakota Laren Vegan Leather Moto Jacket

For colder days, we found the two jackets that you absolutely need. These neutral outerwear options will go over every outfit! We love the ruffle denim jacket by Elan Clothing. It has a shorter fit, so it will look ah-ma-zing over your dresses or overalls. The vegan leather moto jacket by Jack By BB Dakota is made out of the softest faux leather material. We love this lighter colored leather jacket option for spring days and it will be perfect for nights out over your basic tee and ankle length jeans.

Qupid Shoes Tuxedo Flats with Heel Strap | Outwoods Bork Diagonal Strap Sandals Qupid Shoes Core Perforated Peep Toe Heels

Now for the footwear options for your capsule wardrobe! Here are three pairs of shoes that will pull together all your spring looks. The Tuxedo shoe is an essential to your footwear collection, offering a comfortable footbed and covered vamp ballerina shoe design will look flawless for your everyday ensembles. Strappy sandals are essential to any spring outfit and in the color rose gold it will add a little bling to your looks. The peep toe heel is a fashionable option that will be great for dressing up any of your outfit combinations.

Now all you have to do is mix and match these pieces together to create the perfect spring looks. To shop all these spring capsule wardrobe essentials, head over to!

Outfit of the Day Inspiration

We love when our customers and sales associates share their Glik’s style with us. So, each month we will choose a trend and have our sales associates style it out to show off their different styles. Check out some of the styles we received in March and April!

March Men’s Outfits | BBQ Shirts

For the month of March, our favorite trend was BBQ Shirts for men. We thought the one who wore it the best was our Chairman, Mr. Glik. Although, all of our guy associates rocked this look, it’s hard to beat Mr. Glik!BBQ Shirts

March Women’s Outfits | Off the SHOULDER

For the month of March, our favorite trend for Women was off the shoulder tops and dresses. Our sales associate Paige from our Jasper Glik’s location was voted best to wear an off the shoulder top! Off the shoulder tops and dresses look great on just about anyone and are always fun to style!Off the Shoulder

“Since working at Glik’s, I have really developed my own personal style. In my OOTD photo I was wearing a white off the shoulder Poof top, with a brick colored bralette underneath. I love all of the lace detail on the high neck bralettes, and think they really helped tie together my look. I wore dark washed Flying Monkeys because these are my go to jeans. If you can go comfortable AND stylish that’s always a win in my book! For footwear I had on a pair of City Classified peep toed booties. The taupe canvas with the wooden accent on the heel really helped dress up the entire outfit. To accessorize, I had on a beaded necklace that I chose to style as a layered choker.” – Paige

April Men’s Outfits | Novelty Shirts

For the month of April, our favorite trend was novelty shirts for men. Our fearless leader, CEO, Jeff Glik, took the lead for wearing the best novelty shirt. He styled it with a fun hat and matching Yeti. Although, Jeff got us with his tropical vibes, I think Chad really rocked his dinosaur shirt!Novelty Shirts

April Women’s Outfits | Piko Tops and Dresses

For the month of April, our favorite trend for Women was Piko tops and dresses. Our sales associate Jess from our Vincennes Glik’s location was voted best to style a Piko. If you don’t have a Piko top or dress then I highly recommend investing in one. You will love it! Piko

“I love the Piko because it is so effortless to layer and dress up. Of course, bralettes are everything right now, so adding one to an outfit with a basic tee really makes it a little more special. I am so in love with floral prints this season, so I couldn’t resist the Sweet Claire kimono. Adding a cute pair of KanCans and some peep toes is just the icing on the cake!” – Jess
