Capsule wardrobes may be having a moment, but they actually started way back in the seventies as a way to embrace a more minimalist, conscious lifestyle. The idea is to pare your wardrobe down to a few timeless, quality essentials – the little black dress, for example – that can transition between occasions and never go out of style.
No matter your motivation, it’s pretty clear that a capsule wardrobe is the ultimate cure to at least one problem: overpacking for travel. When you curate a handful of tried-and-true pieces you can easily mix and match, dress up or down, and feel flawless in, packing is so easy, you can do it between glasses of wine.
So if you’re already booking your spring vacay but dreading the packing process, don’t worry. We’ve put together a list of the only items tall and curvy babes need for a perfect spring capsule wardrobe. From tall women’s clothing staples to curvy babe must-haves, we’ve hit every style and occasion.
Check out the items below!
Long jackets are tall girl staples, since tall babes have the frame to carry all that excess material. They can also add a chic, on-trend look to any curvy girl wardrobe, since long jackets – especially trench coats – are in right now.
For those reasons and so many more, long, light outerwear is the perfect statement piece as the weather creeps toward warmer months. In the spirit of spring, go for lighter neutral hues like cream, tan, or light gray.
For warmer climates, you can even accomplish the same look with a long sweater or sweater-jacket. Either piece can be dressed up or down, and paired with jeans and skirts alike.
The tailored blouse is a must-have for any season, but quarter- or even short-sleeved tailored blouses in lighter fabrics are especially suited for a dressed-up spring evening. A tailored cut designed for your proportions will accentuate your height or curves in the best way, so you can feel confident no matter the occasion.
Take the opportunity to rock pinks, yellows, and other bright spring colors, or just opt for chic whites and pale neutrals.
A classic white or graphic tee is essential for kicking back during the warmer months. It’s such a reliable yet fashionable staple that fits so easily into luggage, you may want to choose two or three favorites to pair with denim, skirts, long jackets, leggings, or pretty much anything in between.
The T-shirt is a versatile component of any tall or curvy babe’s wardrobe, pairing perfectly with almost every item of tall women’s clothing you can imagine.
Perfect for long flights and casual afternoons spent sight-seeing, leggings and joggers are your athleisure must-have for comfy spring days. Even if you won’t be jet-setting any time soon, you’ll want a trendy, reliable pair of leggings for working out, catching up with friends, or just lounging around on the weekends.
Okay, so you can probably get away with your favorite jeans all spring, no matter the color or style. But as the days warm up, so does the fashion. Light-colored and white jeans are having a moment, so grab yourself a pair in whatever tall jeans style you love most.
We absolutely love this retro comeback for tall and curvy babes alike. Whether you go for a hip-hugging, femme-fatale look or a more relaxed fit, pencil skirts can create a really flattering silhouette while adding some vintage class to any outfit.
Dress it up with blouses and heels or down with a Tee and sneakers – the possibilities are endless with this versatile item.
Florals for spring may not ever go away, and we’re here for it. There’s hardly a better fabric for light, spring-friendly dresses.
Tall babes have the privilege of being able to rock any length of dress, so you really have endless options with this spring capsule wardrobe staple. Flaunt your height with tall maxi dresses, or show off your legs with midi or mini lengths.
Try close-toed mules or chunky heels you can easily slip into luggage to wear on a dressed-up evening out. Yes, we said it – tall babes can definitely #WearTheHeels. But for a capsule wardrobe, the comfier, the better.
Your capsule wardrobe should consist of items you can rely on for a variety of occasions. So heels and platforms should be comfortable enough for frequent wear, and ideally can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
Whether you’ve booked a vacation where you plan to do lots of walking and sight-seeing, or you’re just leaning into an athleisure wardrobe, a reliable (and cute!) pair of sneakers is a must. Celebrate spring by going for lighter colors, or just plain white.
Spring is the season of light and bright! Ditch your winter blacks and browns for a beige or tan bag in pretty much any style, from over-the-shoulder to understated totes to retro bucket bags. As a tall babe especially, you can get away with larger, fun statement accessories that will catch the eye without overwhelming your frame.
