I recently purchased a few new items and now it’s time to figure out how these pieces will work with my spring/summer capsule wardrobe. After The French Capsule Challenge, I discovered that black is one of the core colors in my wardrobe. Yet I don’t think it is the most flattering neutral on me and I would like to incorporate it as an accent color instead. But I do not want to shop just to shop, so I will have to adjust my wardrobe slowly over time. I’m going to mix in my French Capsule Challenge wardrobe with my new additions, into my spring/summer capsule wardrobe, by using my color capsules.
The largest capsules in my spring/summer working closet by color after my French Capsule Challenge wardrobe are navy and turquoise. And the printed dress in my French Capsule Challenge wardrobe, has turquoise in it. So this seems like a good place to start.
By adding turquoise shoes I can bridge outfits between the French and turquoise wardrobes. The turquoise also helps to ‘lighten up’ the colors in my French Capsule Challenge Wardrobe.
Of course adding turquoise and navy to the turquoise capsule will work. And the solid colored items help to calm what is otherwise a very print heavy (and busy) looking capsule.
And my turquoise and navy additions will work nicely with my navy and olive wardrobes as well as my wildcard yellow trousers. Of course, new additions mean another closet purge so that my wardrobe does not begin to creep up in size.
Have you ever shifted the core color of your wardrobe?
