Back with my FOURTH Capsule Wardrobe…this time it’s a Spring Capsule Wardrobe from H&M of course! I usually wait until April to put together this post, but the weather in NY has been so mild (other than the random snowstorm we had this week) and so many of you are already requesting it, so I figured I would post it in March!
This H&M Spring Capsule Wardrobe it’s a GOOD ONE! I kept it under 30 pieces (many of which I’m sure you already own variations of) and also gave you 48 outfit ideas. I’m ready to pack away my sweaters and layers (well most of them at least) and this Spring Guide definitely reflects that! Lots of dresses, pretty sandals, straw bags and more and also all very wearable. In fact, I ordered a few of these items and I can’t wait to get them and wear them again and again! All of these items will also work perfectly in the Summer too!
When I shared my Winter Capsule Wardrobe last season someone asked if I could also make one of these for Madewell, so stay tuned because I’ll be making a bonus mini Capsule of items from Madewell next! So if you have any other stores you’d like to see Capsule Wardrobes from let me know!
Affordable H&M Spring Capsule Wardrobe Items:
1. Pleated Dress ($49.99)
This feminine, airy dress is Spring perfection and exactly what your closet is missing. I also love that it can be worn on it’s own or layered with a sweater or jacket over it to highlight its pleated skirt! Also if you’re headed to a Spring wedding this is the perfect dress!
2. Smocked Dress ($39.99)
This purple floral dress screams Spring. The long sleeves allow you to wear it when the weather is a little cooler, but the lightweight fabric will keep it in rotation for months! This is definitely a piece that can be dressed up with an on-trend platform heel or down with a denim jacket & sneakers (both of which you’ll see in the outfit ideas portion of this post).
3. Pleated Maxi Dress ($69.99)
Who doesn’t love a romantic maxi dress and this pleated, floral one is on the top of my list! I love the high neck in front and low cut back! And also it can easily be dressed up or dressed down.
4. Crop Tank Top ($9.99)
A cropped tank is a must in my warm weather wardrobe! H&M makes great basics and I’m definitely adding this cream and black striped top to my closet this season. If stripes aren’t your thing this top comes in a TON of different colors!
5. V-Neck Blouse ($14.99)
I need a new white blouse every Spring to last me through the warm weather months and this one is light, airy and perfect for this year! It can be dressed up with a skirt or tailored pants or dressed down with jeans. And if white isn’t your thing this top also comes in black, blue and a fun pattern.
6. Single Breasted Jacket ($39.99)
This tailored jacket is polished, back to the office perfection and a great addition to your work (or play) wardrobe this Spring! The light green color is so perfect and it can be worn alone or paired with the matching dress pants!
7. Dress Pants ($34.99)
I’ve actually never included a full suit in any of my capsule wardrobes and it was about time I did! Relaxed fit, wide-cut pants have been on my radar for a while and I think they would be a great alternative to your basic tailored “dress pants” for Spring & Summer, plus again this light green color is amazing! These can be worn with a heel and the matching blazer just as easily as they can be paired with a crop top and sandals!
8. Flared Pants ($29.99)
These cream patterned pants were one of the first items I pinned for this Spring Capsule Wardrobe because I loved how versatile they were! These are a great example of how something with a pattern can so versatile! Not only can they be paired with both solids and other patterns, but they can also be dressed up for work or an occasion or worn casually!
9. Wide High Jeans ($34.99)
It wouldn’t be a capsule wardrobe without a pair of jeans and H&M makes great ones! Wide leg jeans aren’t going anywhere so if you haven’t added a pair to your closet now is the time!
10. Ribbed Leggings ($24.99)
No explanation needed!
11. Cotton Twill Trench ($74.99)
This sage green immediately caught my eye and I loved that it made this trench different than your normal trench coat! The color screams Spring, but is also a neutral and will go with pretty much every outfit here!
12. Biker Jacket ($64.99.99)
Every closet needs a biker jacket and while I’m sure you have one already I figured I’d include this one just incase you don’t and to show you how many ways you can wear it with these items! Plus I love the idea of switching up a black biker jacket for a beige one for Spring!
13. Fine Knit Cardigan ($19.99)
While I would love to say cardigan season is over, it’s definitely not yet. This soft, lightweight sweater is a great option while its still on the cooler side and for upcoming chilly nights! It comes in blue, white, black and a really pretty dusty rose color!
14. Rib-Knit Sweater ($24.99)
While I despise the fact that it’s still sweater weather in NY I’m less upset about not being able to put my sweaters away when they’re as cute as this light green one! It’s still functional and will keep you warm, but the color is perfect for Spring.
15. Crew Neck Sweatshirt ($12.99)
I was raving about H&M sweatshirts a few weeks ago over on Instagram and honestly I can’t count how many I own. Like the t-shirts, they are the BEST! So soft, comfortable and affordable! This cream one with a cute embroidered saying on it is a great piece to wear with everything from skirts to shorts to jeans!
16. Slip On Sandals ($34.99)
I am OBSESSED this these slip on heeled sandals that you’re seeing everywhere this year! The heel is just high enough and they are so chic! I recently got a similar pair from Target.
17. Textured Sneakers ($30.99)
Classic white sneakers – a staple in my closet and a staple in my capsule wardrobes! No explanation needed!
18. Studded Sandals ($79.99)
Quite possibly the most trendy sandal for 2023, these studded slip-ons will make everything you wear this Spring and Summer cooler!
19. Leather Slides ($49.99)
How chic are these slides? I honestly couldn’t believe they were H&M as they look WAY more expensive than they are and are a great addition to your closet.
20. Pumps ($34.99)
These square toe, block heel pumps are perfect for dressy occasions and the office!
21. Double Strand Necklace ($9.99)
Who loves the look of layered necklaces, but hate having to actually layer them? Then this is for you! I also love pairing a more elegant gold necklace with fun green and pearl beads!
22. Hoop Earrings ($12.99)
I’m seriously loving hoop earrings and these are so unique and a fun addition to any outfit this season.
23. Straw Shoulder Bag ($32.99)
A straw bag is a Spring & Summer essential and I promise that you’ll have a hard not not pairing this one with just about every outfit!
24. Small Shoulder Bag ($24.99)
I’m really loving hot pink this season? It’s truly everywhere and I’m so here for it. While it’s definitely a statement it’s surprisingly wearable and goes with pretty much every outfit I included below.
25. Crochet Shopper ($29.99)
I treat myself to a new straw crocheted bag every season and this one might be it this year! I love the pattern and it’s perfect for vacation!
