February Capsule Wardrobe Essentials to Suit Your Colouring & Body Shape

As I’m looking out of the window all I can see is grey sky and rain – sorry to be so down beat! So what better than some bright rainwear to make venturing out less daunting. Yes of course a classic neutral rain coat works best for the office, but for downtime why not choose something a little more interesting?

Here are some suggestions and who they will suit:

Bright rainwear to suit your colouring

Yellow trench works for Light/Warm and Warm colouring.

Aqua trench for Light, Cool and Bright colouring.

Candy rain coat for Cool and Bright colouring.

Navy/Red mac for Deep and Cool colouring

The classic double breasted trench shape works best on those with a defined waist and a small bust. If you have a fuller bust choose one that is singled breasted. For a slim straight shape cinch in the belt to create a waist.

If you are apple shaped choose an unwanted style like the Candy or Navy print one above.

Bright rainwear to suit your colouring

Red trench for Light, Warm and Bright colouring (as this coat is a bright and warm Watermelon red)

Black trench for Deep and Bright colouring and would look even better with a colourful scarf added.

Navy print poncho for Deep/Cool, Cool and Bright/Cool colouring.

Baby pink trench for Cool and Light/Cool colouring.

    Hi Natasha, thank you for your question and sorry I missed Soft! The yellow coat would work if you are soft with a warm skin tone and the pale pink would work for soft with a cool skin tone.
