Cyber Monday Is the Perfect Time to Build Your Summer Capsule Wardrobe

Over the past few years, the concept of curating a capsule wardrobe has taken hold. The idea is to have a tightly curated selection of high-quality special pieces; each pairing easily with one another, and worn over and over again. In order to do that though, you often have to fork out hundreds of dollars for each piece to build it out—but not on Cyber Monday.

The sales today are a perfect opportunity to start building your summer capsule wardrobe. Yes, these items will still come at a pretty price, but think about how long they'll last, and how well they'll work with everything you already own.

Below, we've edited down the most wearable, long-lasting, high-quality pieces we've found in the Cyber Monday sales, to deliver you an affordable capsule wardrobe. Shop the five must-have basics below, including sandals, plain tees, shorts, wrap dresses and slip skirts.
