Six Mini Capsule Wardrobes to Suit Your Colouring

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how to wear colour and which colours suit you as well as creating a capsule wardrobe. So this week I thought I would combine both and give you some ideas about which colours to pick for a capsule wardrobe and how to put them together dependent on your colouring. If you don’t know which of the six colour types you are check out my online colour analysis service.

It’s been a long post to put together but I hope it will give you some inspiration for trying some of the lovely Spring colour that is already in the shops. Note – there are a couple of pieces from Hobbs which are due in store soon. Also the pieces are from all price brackets dependent on what I could find in the right colours. UPDATE… January 2017 This example is from 2015 so the items are no longer available. I have left the links so you can click through and find similar items.

Here are 6 mini capsule wardrobes and a few outfits from each:

    I just wanted to thank you for the weekly bulletins and your wonderful blog.
    I love reading the Friday updates, and have devoured everything on the site.
    I’m determined to crack the capsule wardrobe thing this year, and finally feel that with your guidance I will do this. I especially loved your timeless classic capsule wardrobe this week and I can’t wait for your book.
    Since discovering your work I’ve been inspired to purchase less, but purchase better and every time I open my wardrobe I truly appreciate what is in there instead of feeling like I need more…. and that is a first!
    Thanks so much Maria.

      Hi Leigh, Thank you for your lovely comments – I’m so pleased that you have been able to use the advice and get so much from it. It does take time to create your perfect capsule wardrobe but it’s worth the effort to be able to go to the wardrobe and always have something to wear. Good luck with working on your wardrobe and the book will definitely help! Best wishes Maria
