Are you looking to upgrade your wardrobe for spring? I put together a Spring Capsule wardrobe for under $500 featuring the cutest pieces from Mango.
Check out my Mango Spring 2021 Haul and Spring Capsule wardrobe for under $500 in my YouTube video:
Mango Spring 2021 Haul
I picked up some beautiful pieces from Mango this spring! Mango consistently has beautiful knitwear, blouses and outerwear at very affordable prices.
One of my favourite pieces was the mint wool cardigan, which was under $50 and is perfect for layering. It is incredibly warm and I adore the chunky openwork knit.
Another favourite is this faux leather shirt and faux leather paperbag shorts. I love how chic they look together as an outfit, but the pastel pink faux leather shirt also looks super chic tucked into a pair of jeans. You can also wear a faux leather shirt as a “shacket” (see how I styled a plaid wool shacket here) over a tee and joggers for an on-trend casual outfit.
This green trench coat is SO chic. I love how it pairs effortlessly with a white cotton blouse and jeans, or layered over a dress for a feminine dressy look. This trenchcoat for under $150 was such a steal, and also has weatherproof fabric! I paired it with the white cotton baby-collar blouse, my Senreve Maestra bag (get $50 off with code NATALIEAST) and a pair of cap-toe mules from L’Intervalle.
This spring outfit idea is perfect for a Saturday date or even a casual Friday at the office. Now that we are getting back to a more regular routine, it feels so nice to dress up again!
How to create a Spring Capsule Wardrobe for under $500
A spring capsule wardrobe is a must-have as we enter the new season! You can build your own spring capsule wardrobe for under $500 with a few key pieces and some creativity!
I only added a white t-shirt and a pair of classic dark skinny jeans from Everlane to create this spring capsule wardrobe. As shown in my Youtube video it helps to have a consistent colour palette and tone and separates that can be combined for dozens of combinations!
I also think it’s key to be creative and see how you can make classic pieces more versatile. For example, the floral blouse can be worn with jeans and a cardigan for a casual spring look, or combined with pastel pink shorts and a trench coat for a more formal look.
A classic trench is a staple throughout a spring capsule wardrobe, and I adore how this Mango classic water-repellent trench has a beautiful green colour that pairs so well with other pastels, neutrals and prints alike. This is the key piece you need to build your capsule wardrobe, and is well worth the investment!
Here are the key pieces you need to build a Spring capsule wardrobe for under $500:
- A classic trench coat
- A nautical-inspired striped sweater
- A white cotton blouse with pretty detailing
- A pair of dark denim jeans
- A floral print blouse
- A chunky wool cardigan
- A pair of pastel paperbag shorts
- A faux leather shirt
- A white cotton t-shirt
- A pair of classic white sneakers
- A pair of black or nude leather ballet flats
With this list, you can create dozens of outfits that are perfect for any occasion! I also love that this capsule wardrobe idea isn’t “basic” and features beautiful prints, and trendy pieces like a faux leather shirt.
I hope you enjoyed these spring capsule wardrobe ideas for under $500! I was so excited to pull this together and share how you can create dozens of outfit combinations on a budget.
