All of the pieces can be mix and matched, to create different looks. Without further ado, here’s the basic idea of how to get yourself 9 Summer outfits for under £50 – Including shoes…
Tops Total: £9.75
When starting out your plan to get 9 Summer Outfits For Under £50, you firstly need to select 3 plain tops, which will go with most colours. I went for a black and a coral vest top, which were 2 for £6 in George. I’m a size 18, so love that they are loose around my tummy. I’ve already got several of these vest tops, and they wash really well. The white top is from Sainsburys. It has a cute plaited strap detail and is just £3.75.
Bottoms Total: £28
Secondly, you need to select 3 items to wear with your tops. I have 2 young kids and 2 dogs, so I don’t wear skirts. The 3 pairs of bottoms I chose cost £28 between them. However, you could always opt for shorts or skirts if you prefer. Firstly, the Black and White Aztec Jersey Cullottes are cost £8 in Asda. The Palm Print woven pants were £10 in Asda. Finally, the black bengaline trousers cost £10 from Matalan. These are all perfect for creating 9 Summer Outfits For Under £50.
Once you have 3 tops and 3 bottoms, you can mix and match them to create 9 different outfits. As you can see, all of the tops go well with all 3 pairs of trousers I opted for.
£12 left for Footwear
If you opt for the same items I picked, you’ll have just over £12 left over for footwear. I am a big fan of flip flops in the Summer, but I like to have some white pumps, too. You can choose one pair from the selection below, or shop elsewhere! All 3 pairs shown below are from Sainsburys.

What is a Capsule Wardrobe?
According to Wikipedia, “A Capsule wardrobe is a term used in American publications as early as the 1940s to denote a small collection of garments designed to be worn together which harmonized in color and line”. They go on to say that…
“The term capsule wardrobe was revived by Susie Faux, the owner of a London boutique called “Wardrobe” in the 1970s. According to Faux, a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that do not go out of fashion, such as skirts, trousers, and coats, which can then be augmented with seasonal pieces. This idea was popularised by American designer Donna Karan, who, in 1985, released an influential capsule collection of seven interchangeable work-wear pieces.
The term is widely used in the British and American fashion media, and has been the subject of several popular television series. The term has come to refer to a collection of clothing that is composed of interchangeable items only, to maximise the number of outfits that can be created. The aim is to have an outfit suitable for any occasion without owning excessive items of clothing. This is usually achieved by buying what are considered to be “key” or “staple” items in coordinating colours.”
