Is it just us or does it seem like less is more lately? Minimalist trends have been popping up left and right, especially in our favorite place: the closet. What better way to whittle down your wardrobe for the season than investing in a custom built closet organizer? Boston Closet Company offers walk-in closet systems designed specifically for your needs when it comes to getting ready for your summer clothing purge.

We’ve all had that pile of clothes building up on a desk chair that looks like a person at night… let’s get rid of that this summer. The secret: the capsule wardrobe. A capsule wardrobe is a mini wardrobe made up of versatile pieces that can be mixed and matched for the season. The key is to clear out and store your bulky winter items and to put your light and breezy pieces on display, so you have easy access to them every morning.

A custom walk-in closet will help Boston homeowners create a super simple capsule wardrobe. Use islands with extra drawer space to put away any pieces that you won’t be reaching for this summer and valet rods to hang extra tanks and blouses that area must have in your final capsule.

We know everyone has different clothing needs and essentials, so we’ve put together a rough guideline of a couple of basics your capsule wardrobe should include by the end of your process.

1.)    White Linen: Once a staple for hippies and home goods, this trend is making a strong comeback. Lightweight, woven fabric is a comfortable, and you’ll still look chic and put-together at the same time.

2.)    Tan Sandals: The best thing about a tan slide or sandal is that it’s practical. Tan is everywhere this summer, so footwear in this color will be easy to find and can be very affordable. Boston Closet Company makes it easy to take care of your footwear all year long with walk-in closet organizers. Slanted shoe shelves store your supply of sandals and make it easy to swap them out all season.

3.)    Monochrome Sunglasses: A good black or brown pair will elevate any outfit. Our closet organizers have lockable, velvet-lined jewelry drawers to safely store your nice summer sunnies.

4.)    Florals: Floral dresses, blouses, dress shirts, pants… you name it. A good basic is near and dear to our hearts, but summer is the time to break out a loud pattern.

A capsule wardrobe can be difficult to master. Let us make the process a breeze! Boston residents love their closet organizers because they provide fold-away, full-length mirrors, adjustable compartments and shelving for a methodized approach to building your summer wardrobe.
