Summer Capsule Wardrobe // Look 13

If capsule wardrobing teaches you anything, and in my limited experience with the concept I can assure you that it most certainly does teach you things, it’s that accessories can totally define a look.  They can dress things up, dress them down, make them preppy or bohemian or edgy.  They can make something as simple and casual as this jean and t-shirt look come together and look finished and intentionally casual/sporty.  Hats, of all accessories, are one of my favorite ways to finish out a look.  Do you own a hat?  You can find …
