I’ve been following a Capsule Wardrobe lifestyle for almost 2 years now and I really love how it’s simplified my life, but one of the things I’ve learned is that it’s hard for me to put together an entire 6 month season (my climate only calls for 2 seasons) in 1-2 weeks, so I’ve given myself the leeway to add as I go. If that sounds counterintuitive, let me explain. This “add as you go” idea is very limited. I make very thoughtful purchases and the additions are usually something I already had on my list, like a pair of jeans, linen dress or a new crop top. The idea of a Capsule Wardrobe is that you only own/buy things that you love 100% of the time, so I don’t want to force myself to buy something on my list if I haven’t found the perfect item.
Case in point. My warm-weather collection has been missing a pair of denim shorts. I currently own one pair of denim shorts and I wear them 90% of the time. I love them. They go with everything and I can dress them up or down, but one pair of shorts in a 100-degree, 100% humidity southern summer just isn’t enough.
I’ve been hunting my friends…and here are my top 7 denim shorts for the perfect Capsule Wardrobe.
