The Wardrobe Architect Week 10 - The Capsule Palette
Last week's exercise on the Wardrobe Architect series had us contemplating our capsule wardrobe silhouettes, now this week we have to decide on a colour palette for our wardrobe. As suggested I've gone back to the colour palettes I made several weeks ago and come up with this:
I already have some pieces in my wardrobe that fit my silhouette and colour palette; dark coloured slim jeans (and an almost completed pair of Jamie Jeans too! - more about those another day); dull coral trousers and a navy and cream striped jersey maxi skirt. I also have quite a number of nautical-ish striped jersey tops.
There are a few gaps to be filled - I mentioned that I have a desire for a red maxi skirt, although another pair of trousers or a knee length skirt might be more practical, and I could do with a few tops that aren't striped. As much as I love stripes, it would be nice to have a bit of variety.
The next part of my plan is to play a little Style Sudoko with my wardrobe, as ably detailed by Su of Su Sews So-So this week.
I'm going on holiday to Ireland mid-May and it would be nice to be able to take a co-ordinated capsule wardrobe along with me, even if I may need to wear my thermals and raincoat with it.
