Do you or a loved one suffer from closet overchoice, or having a rough time making decisions because you’ve got too many options? Symptoms may include irritation, confusion as you stare at your bulging wardrobe, and being so chronically late that your friends have begun giving you separate meet-up times.

While the Silicon Valley solution to this is wearing the same black hoodie and dad sneakers daily, who wants to take it to such an extreme? That’s why we’re proposing a lite version, otherwise known as capsule dressing. Step 1: Zero in on a handful of pieces you absolutely love. Step 2: Rotate, finesse, and style until the wheels fall off. To give you an example, we’ve partnered with Macy’s to present content creator Anitra Pearson’s capsule, made up of just four excellent pieces. Because when it comes down to it, that’s really all you need for an overchoice-proof summer.

The Stand-Out-In-A-Crowd Dress

You might be questioning why we’ve included an item this memorable, but summer logic dictates that fewer clothes = fewer opportunities to flex. And with this ultra-flattering maxi in a juicy lime, you’ll definitely stick around in any passerby’s mind. Play with accessories and makeup in complementary colors — you might find that this shade goes with way more than you previously thought.

The Trophy Top & “I Want To Wear This All The Time” Skirt

You know when you buy something that’s not necessarily highly “matchable” but you end up wearing it a million different ways anyway? This is that, two times over. A square-neck top can go with just about any bottom you throw at it (the ditsy print is small enough not to interfere with other patterns), while a flirty eyelet skirt can support throwaway T-shirts and button-ups and tops with texture, e.g., ruffles.

The Well-Ventilated Dress

Looking cool and staying cool in the summer don’t have to be mutually exclusive. With this cutout dress, Niagara Falls running down your back won’t be an issue. To keep your subsequent looks featuring this frock similarly fresh, use the abstract print to mix in other monochromatic prints like the polka-dot shoe here, or bring in any color you like.
