Last week’s Youtube video had such great feedback, that I thought I would share with you some of the new items I am adding to my Spring capsule wardrobe and how they fit with my Style Formula. If you didn’t watch the video, briefly, your Style Formula describes the important elements of your personal style. If you would like a much more detailed explanation and to find out how to discover yours, have a look at The Style Guide course. Pieces in your wardrobe will work best for you if they contain one or more of the elements of your Style Formula. You can then also split out those pieces into groups, depending on whether they are Essential Basics, Signature Pieces or Standout Pieces. Here are a few of my Spring pieces, gifted as part of my ambassadorship with Pure Collection, and why I chose them.
In this category are tops and bottoms mostly in neutral colours. I love the Pure Collection linen T-shirts because they are such good quality and stand up to constant wash and wear, as proven by one in my wardrobe that is 4 years old! They are also soft, which along with the quality makes them fit my Style Formula as an Essential. This T-shirt is the perfect Spring top, with it’s navy and white colour way and is smart enough to wear with trousers under a blazer or more casually with denim or Chinos.
The next new item in this category is a pair of cotton stretch cropped trousers in navy. Trousers that I know I will wear again and again through Spring, Summer and even in to Autumn. Mixed with coloured and printed tops, flats and heels, these are an essential wardrobe item for me. (They come up a little small so for comfort I would size up)
The final item, the Shawl Cashmere Cardigan, is one that falls into one of my Signature Pieces because of the gorgeous colour, the soft cashmere and the relaxed shape (all key elements of my Style Formula). It will go over so many pieces in my wardrobe, providing the extra warmth that we still need at the moment.
I haven’t added any Standout pieces to my wardrobe yet this season. They tend to be items that are harder to find, but are even more special when you do.
