Week 9: The Capsule Wardrobe – Spring/Summer 2017
Colette Blog: What is a Capsule Wardrobe? A capsule wardrobe is a small, manageable subset of your wardrobe, and it usually is something you can plan seasonally.
Today’s focus – Choosing silhouettes
Going clockwise: Outfits 1 & 2 are my Everyday Lounge Wear, Outfits 3 & 4 are Hot Summer Days and the last two are Work Wear
These are the silhouettes I aspire to wear this Spring and Summer. I would love to be able to sew up most of them if I only had the time but I’m going to try my best either way. Some of these pieces I already have and some I just received for my birthday (I may have hinted a bit…). I will most likely add some more flowing pieces but for now this is a good base to work with.
Week 10: The Capsule Wardrobe Palette
This week’s exercise: Choose your capsule palette for the season. Use the list of favorite colors you came up with in week 6, picking a few colors from each category.
This Spring/Summer I want to go for lighter colors. I will probably wear plenty of black as that is my usual work color but I am going to make an effort to make/buy this season’s clothing in the colors I picked above so that I don’t just stick with blues, grays, white and black which is what I am always drawn to.
