Fashion 101: Omiru’s Womenswear Spring Summer Capsule Wardrobe

March 24th, 2009

Spring/Summer 2009 Capsule Wardrobe
Want to take a closer look at the capsule wardrobe?  Here’s more information about it.

Back by popular demand is Omiru’s capsule wardrobe, updated for Spring/Summer 2009.  As with our Fall/Winter capsule wardrobe, these foundation pieces were meticulously chosen with versatility in mind.    Our purposefully small capsule wardrobe covers a range of classic styles - trendproof pieces that are worth investing in.  Notice the mix of high and low that is the signature of a stylish woman’s wardrobe–and the fact that a few of the pieces repeat from our Fall/Winter foundation wardrobe.  From the classic trench to the perfect pair of blue jeans, these are the pieces that are worth building a wardrobe around.

Presenting Omiru’s Womenswear Spring Summer Capsule Wardrobe:

The Classic Trenchcoat: Pick a neutral color for your classic trench; this is a piece that will be with you for years to come. 

The Hip Length Blazer:
A hip length blazer in a versatile grey fabric will take you from day to evening.

The Casual Jacket:
Mix things up with a short sleeved jacket - great for layering.

The Day Dress: An unstructured floaty style will work alone - or paired with pants.

The Patterned Sweater: Add visual interest to any outfit with a patterned sweater.

The Smart Cardigan: Try a classic cardigan with a twist - two button-adorned pockets at the waistline.

The Dressy Tank: A simple tank can go from casual to fabulous in a sumptuous fabric or artistic pattern.

The Layering Tank: A staple of your wardrobe, year round.  Choose a nice bright color that you would love to see peeking out from under a blouse or sweater.

The Dressy Blouse: Make a simple blouse visually Pop with a bright bold color.

The Button Down Shirt: The classic white button down is one of the most versatile shirts you’ll ever own.  Wear it year round.
The Casual Top: Look for a top with unique details - like the black trim that outlines this halter top.

The Drapey Blouse: Dress this blouse up or down - it pairs equally well with casual jeans as it does formal skirts and pants.

The Perfect Fit Jeans: Keep your favorite jeans in your closet year-round.

The Tailored Trousers: Quality fabrics and great details (like the sailor buttons) make these trousers the pants you’ll keep reaching into your closet for.

The Knee Length Shorts: Try a solid colored knee length short for a spiffy, flattering look.

The Warm Weather Skirt: Mix things up with an interesting pattern - like these polka dots.

Last thoughts?  This capsule wardrobe is best used as a blueprint for your own wardrobe.  Use it as a guide, not as a straight shopping list.  We intend for these pieces to inspire you to make your own wardrobe choices - so your closet has your own personal stamp.

Let the inspiration begin!
Trisha and the Omiru Team

    As usual, you’ve hit all the staples, but managed to pick pieces that are decidedly un-boring. Love this capsule collection, ladies!

    I’ll admit, I’m not so good with coordinating pieces– I’m always too matchy-matchy. Any tips on mixing up this great capsule wardrobe you’ve got here?
