Summer is travel season and, let’s be real, packing light isn’t always easy. The answer? A travel capsule wardrobe. The perfect carry-on capsule wardrobe always includes pieces that can pull double or even triple duty, so before you pack an item, think: “How will I wear this at least two times for two different occasions?” (This is also assuming you have access to laundry machines!)

For a one-week getaway, stylist Erica Wark says you only need: seven articles of clothing, three pairs of shoes, and three bags. Yes, that’s it. It’s all about mixing and matching your capsule wardrobe.

Check out some of Erica’s looks below.

JUMPSUIT + CROSSBODY BAG + SANDAL

A jumpsuit is a great piece to include in your capsule because of its versatility; you can easily dress it up or down. This one from Addition Elle is made of Tencel, so it’s lightweight, breathable and sustainable. Finish off the look with a crossbody bag and a pair of lace-up sandals.

DRESS + DENIM JACKET + TOTE + SNEAKER


Like a jumpsuit, a dress is such a great option to pack in your capsule since it’s so versatile. Wear this slip dress from Zara with sneakers for day, and pair of heels by night. A denim jacket is another great piece to pack. Wear this one from Gap on the plane and then keep it handy for when going in and out of air conditioned spaces or at nighttime when the temperature drops.

T-SHIRT + SHORT + DENIM JACKET + CROSSBODY BAG + SANDAL


A t-shirt and short combo is essential when travelling in the summer, and there are so many outfit options you can create with them. Pack a 100% cotton tee for breathability like this one from Canadian brand Kotn. Skip the denim shorts and opt for a pair like these from H&M that you can more easily dress up for night.

SWIMSUIT + TROUSER + CLUTCH + HEEL


It’s time to rethink your swimsuit! Wear it poolside by day, and then out at night with a pair of floral print trousers like these from Zara or even with the shorts you packed in your capsule. The next day, pair these trousers with your t-shirt and sneakers for a completely different outfit.
