Have you heard your trendiest friends dish about their capsule wardrobes and wondered what they were talking about? I’ll break it down for you.

With a capsule wardrobe, you focus on reducing the clutter in your closet and choose versatile pieces that you can pair together. Minimalists, fashionistas and busy women everywhere could benefit from building a capsule wardrobe. Thankfully, Dirty Hippie’s newest collection is full of neutral pieces that mix and match beautifully.

You don’t have to feel overwhelmed when starting your capsule wardrobe. Instead, take it as a chance to give your closet a tidying up and start choosing pieces you know you’ll wear over and over again.

Five occasions. Five outfits.

1. Listening to live music

Music festivals and concerts are back in Birmingham, so it’s time to add flare to your wardrobe. The best part of Dirty Hippie’s new capsule collection is that the pieces are meant for you to wear with every occasion. Rock tropical patterns at a music festival, then wear them to the office on Monday.

2. Browsing local farmers’ markets

There’s nothing better than a Saturday morning browsing Birmingham’s farmers’ markets, except maybe shopping while wearing an outfit that’s cute *and* comfortable. Dirty Hippie’s neutral pieces flow well together, so whether you add one piece or five pieces to your closet, you know they’ll match what you already have.

3. Brunchin’ with your crew

Brunch dates are even better when you’re wearing an outfit you love. The chicest fashionistas know how important an LBD is to finish a wardrobe (or a little black jumpsuit). Throw on a loose cardigan and a felt hat to complete the look.

Bonus—Dirty Hippie carries sizes up to 3X and has options for children and tweens so everyone in the family can find pieces they love.

4. Strolling through Birmingham’s gardens

Spend a day strolling through one of Birmingham’s gorgeous gardens while wearing outfits that are as cute as their background. Neutral pants and tops make it even easier to wear and re-wear your pieces.

5. Relaxing at the end of a busy Bham day

Of course, cozy loungewear is an essential part of your wardrobe. Instead of reaching for an old pair of sweats, throw on a loungewear set that you’ll feel good about wearing out and about.

Whether you’re getting ready for a summer of fun events or just want to refresh your wardrobe, Dirty Hippie has everything you’ll need.
