Cleveland is a city that really comes alive in the summertime! It offers fabulous weekly festivals like Edgewater Live and Wade Oval Wednesdays where live music, food trucks and a general good time turn up in abundance. On Wednesday I decided to check out the Summer Solstice Celebration at Lakewood Park – known for the somewhat newly (2015) constructed Solstice Steps where local residents gather each night to watch the sun set over Lake Erie.
While I rarely wear shorts anymore, I decided to this night. Hey, if you can’t wear shorts in Cleveland on the longest day of the year, when can you? This pair (and the top) are older items in my wardrobe but the shorts reminded me a bit of a current pair from Sandro. The pink and black combo takes me back to my 1980’s teen years!
Continuing on last week’s capsule wardrobe theme, today we’ll focus on foundation tops. Again, you don’t need ALL of these pieces for a capsule, but it’s easier to get started if you have at least a few of them.
With foundation items, I recommend buying the best you can afford. An exception to this would be white camis and tees as most people I know replace them often. As with our basic bottoms, keep details clean and somewhat minimal. At this stage we are working on versatility. Remember to stay true to your primary color palette. If your go-to dark is black, don’t buy navy tees/sweaters and vice versa. Charcoals and greys fit in nicely with both navy and black color palettes for mid-tone neural pieces.
