Even though we still have snow on the ground, my mind is on hot, humid, summer weather. Last summer I felt suffocated wearing jeans and cotton t-shirts, so I want to start thinking about how many pieces would be enough to get through approximately 3 months of crazy hot weather.

I want to shop my closet to start my capsule, but I don't know how many tops and bottoms is a good target number to get through the summer. I don't crave a ton of variety, but I do suspect I will need more pieces than I did in winter, simply due to the fact I will be washing more often.

Four tops and three bottoms would give me 12 outfits, but is that enough to reasonably make it through 12 weeks of summer?
