If you read the first post in this series about starting a project on creating your perfect wardrobe you may already have gathered together some pictures or examples of things that you love. So here is an example of how you can use what you have found to create a colour scheme.
Let’s say for example you have found a beautiful scarf, the colours just grab you and you would like to create a colour scheme around those colours. This is a great way to create a colour palette as it’s built around a selection of colours that you already love together.
I found this beautiful scarf and here is how I would pull out the colours and use them in a capsule wardrobe. You will need one or two neutrals, a light neutral and a couple of accents.
For the neutrals I’ve chosen Cocoa and Taupe, light neutrals are Cream and Cement and accents are Lavender, Blush, Cassis and Amber. Strictly speaking you wouldn’t normally include Amber and Lavender together as one is warm and the other cool but it works in the scarf, so this shows how you can break the rules if you want to.
You may not find items in all of your chosen colours immediately but that’s alright because you can build them up and expand over time as and when you do find them. You can also add to the colour palette over time too. I’ve haven’t included all of the colours that are in the scarf so this would allow you to grow your collection. You could, for example, add Camel and a deeper pink.
See how by adding a jacket in the accent colours you can make a neutral dress and accessories colourful. The outfits are pulled together by adding in the scarf. By adding accessories in the accent colours you start to expand the possibilities too.
I hope this will give you some inspiration for putting a colour scheme together. But If you would like me to create a capsule wardrobe for you check out my personalised capsule wardrobe service.
