The secret to putting together a capsule wardrobe that works is to take a neutral colour and then add a second colour and some pattern. The tops and bottoms should mix and match into multiple outfits. Here I have chosen all items from Hobbs . Starting with a Spring weight linen suit of jacket and trousers then adding a twinset and dress in purple, an animal print skirt and cardigan and a stripe skirt in a mix of cream and purple. One more neutral cream top and a pair of purple flats, and neutral heels complete the capsule. An the bonus – several summer trends also incorporated – soft neutrals, brights and animal print!
Below – all tops mixed with the trousers and the dress:
