Spring Capsule Wardrobe Part Four – The Colour Scheme & First Pieces

If you have been following along with the “how to create a Spring capsule wardrobe” posts you will know that so far we have looked at coats, jackets, suits and dresses, so this is a good point to start making some choices for what to include and working out a colour scheme. I’ve chosen a couple of the Spring seasonal trend colours and a Spring favourite combination of navy and white (or in this case a soft white). So here is what the colour scheme looks like so far:

Navy, Toasted Almond, Soft White, Tangerine, Soft Aqua

Below are the pieces I have chosen to include. Starting with a coat, suit and the jackets.

I’ve chosen:

  • A classic raincoat in a single breasted style which suits more body shapes than the traditional double breasted trench.
  • A three piece navy suit which won’t date.
  • A white jacket for work and also for any formal occasions during the season (weddings, Ascot etc)
  • A soft Aqua jacket that will be can be worn with casual trousers and jeans but also over dresses and smarter work separates.
  • The must have jacket of the season; a nautical stripe, which can be worn over casual dresses and jeans or smart casual skirts and trousers.
  • A leather Biker in a neutral that will go with everything.

It may seem like a lot of dresses but these cover work, casual and one dressy option. So if you don’t work in an office and don’t need smart dresses you would adjust it to suit you. I’ve chosen:

  • An easy wear but smart shift dress in this season’s Tangerine. This will grab attention and make you stand out from the crowd. It can be worn alone or with the Soft White and Navy jackets.
  • 3 jersey dresses that can be dressed up for work with the Navy suit jacket, Soft White or Soft Aqua Jacket or made more weekend casual with the leather Biker jacket.
  • A stripe casual jersey dress, great on it’s own in warmer weather with a pair of sandals or earlier in the season with trainers and the Biker jacket.
  • Another season must have is denim. So I’ve added it in here in a dress. A simple and easy to wear shift shape, add a necklace or scarf and wear alone or topped with a knit or the Biker. Layer with a T-shirt now and a pair of boots or wear in the summer with sandals. Endless options.

Now as it is February I am sharing the love by offering you the chance to win a capsule wardrobe!
