Spring is here, and my spring 2022 shoe capsule wardrobe is complete. This season loafers, slides, slingbacks and sneakers are hot, so I made sure to include these street style trends in my shoe capsule wardrobe for spring 2022.

These black slides have been in my wardrobe for several years. They are broken in, and I occasionally polish them to keep them looking good. While the inside might be a little worn, they are still supportive and comfortable for the spring season. I love an investment shoe!

Street sneakers are still hot for casual looks, so these platform sneakers are still on heavy rotation. I wear them multiples times per week, all year long. They are my go-to shoe and will serve me well in the spring season. If you don’t have a fabulous pair of street sneakers, yet, what are you waiting for? Snap up a pair now!

Flats are perfect for spring since they play well with trousers, power suits, and jeans. I love this fun little yellow pair and my tan pair from last year is still serving me well. I love the chic yet comfy vibe that comes from loafer flats.

Slingbacks are the hottest thing in pumps since, well, pumps! Of course, slingbacks are a classic style in high heels, but for spring 2022 they are little more popular than their classic counterpart with closed heels. If you don’t have a pair of slingbacks, be sure to add one to your closet this season. They’ll take you through spring, summer, and fall. Love that!

As you know, spring 2022 is all about smaller handbags, and lots of colors! In addition to small and colorful, we are looking at handbag styles for spring 2022 which can be found in many of our closets. The hottest handbag trends for spring 2022 include the bucket, the small tote, top handle bags, the continuation of the pouch and the hobo handbag.

Since I was a huge bucket bag fan seven to eight years ago when the Mansur Gavriel bucket bag reached its insane IT bag status, I knew I had this trend in my closet to shop. While spring 2022 is bringing us new versions of the bucket bag, I prefer to stick with the classic that I already own. I decided for spring 2022, I would pull my pink bucket bag out of the back of my closet. I have found myself reaching for it often already! It’s so easy to wear and has fabulous interior capacity. Plus, the light pink hue freshens up a foggy day and adds a touch of spring to my overall look; even in my workout cloths. haha Mansur Gavriel has a lot of really pretty colors in stock for spring, just in case you didn’t invest in one the first time around. You can see them all here.

The small tote bag is a great returning trend too. I had this blue tote bag in the back of my closet, and it’s still in stores! I love how small tote bags give the illusion of being a small handbag but are actually quite roomy inside. The cross body strap on most small totes comes in handy too. Love that!

This fabulous yellow tote was from Coach’s spring 2022 runway. They released a small batch right during New York Fashion Week, but plan to release more very soon. I will keep you updated for their in-stock return! In the meantime, they do have larger versions of this classic tote online. I love the neutral hues and the green.

The hobo bag and the pouch are continuing to be hot in 2022. So, if you already invested in these two styles, keep wearing them! If you don’t have a hobo yet, you can still invest in one, they will stick around awhile. Love!

Spring feels different this year. Perhaps it is because we are moving away from the pandemic, dropping the mask mandate, and enjoying the scent of spring. Aren’t the cherry blossoms beautiful? Also, the pear trees; despite the allergy inducing pollen they create, those white blossoms are so pretty! I am so happy spring 2022 is here! Yay!

Since spring has sprung, and the blossoms are everywhere, it is time to talk about my spring 2022 capsule wardrobe! I have two capsules this spring season, one casual capsule wardrobe, and one power suit capsule. Normally my capsule wardrobe builds on itself from season to season, but I am down forty pounds since last April, so I was forced to replace most of my wardrobe, and this means my clothing capsule is mostly new. While all that shopping is fun, the point of a capsule is to build on one’s wardrobe each season without buying all-new; but this season I had no choice. Moving forward, these pieces will be built on each season since I am stable in my weight now and will maintain my current size.

For the spring 2022 season, my capsule wardrobe consists of classic boyfriend jeans, colored jeans (because this is a huge trend), and brightly colored tee’s. Color is in! I love the cheerful look these pieces bring to my closet. I love mixing and matching these pieces together for a cheery spring look. The only mix and match I am not doing is the yellow tee with the beige jeans, I don’t like that look. The beige jeans look fabulous with green, neutrals, and pink. Love!

I am sure you have heard; the power suit is back. The power suit is perfect for a capsule wardrobe since it can be broken up into so many different outfits! I decided to invest in one classic black suit, and one trendy blue suit. These pieces can be mixed and matched into four different suit combinations. Plus, the blazers can be paired with jeans and shorts later in the season. This green top is perfect for adding some spice to a suit. It can also be worn with trousers or jeans for a going-out-at-night look. It’s a great evening top to keep as part of a spring and summer capsule wardrobe.

You cannot go wrong with layering tees. These black and white tees’ fit nicely underneath the blazers, and don’t add bulk or warmth. That is perfect for warm spring days. One huge trend with power suits right now is to wear a cropped top underneath the blazer. While this looks fabulous on some people, it isn’t really my style, so I am sticking to layering tee’s.

The look for jewelry right now is simple and understated, which means a blank neckline. Since I wore power suits back in the day, a blank neckline is weird to me. I have the urge to pair my blazers with vintage neckerchiefs from the 1990s, so stay tuned to see how that plays out. Since I wore suits all the time to work in the 1990s, I also have the urge to pair blazers with necklaces, but that isn’t a thing right now. Think simple and chic. Let the brightly colored blazer do the statement-making. Let’s see if I can do this without a scarf or necklace. haha
