The Wardrobe Architect Week 10: The Capsule Palette

Last weekend I decided to hide away all of my heavy winter sweaters and coats and pull out my warm weather clothes because spring is officially here! I ended up sending 3 bags of clothes away to the thrift shop, and I have one bag of clothes that I'm hoping to sell/ consign (I didn't even count those clothes in my wardrobe tally).

This week Coletterie's Wardrobe Architect and I are focusing on color again so that we can narrow down our palettes for spring.
original color palette from Week 5

I started off by selecting a few colors from each category of my original palette (neutrals, near neutrals,  statement and metallics) that resonated with spring.

I decided to lump teal, turquoise and aqua together because they're so similar to one another (and I could add an extra color without looking like a statement color whore).


So my spring 2014 colors are:
  • Black
  • White
  • Heather Gray
  • Navy
  • Icy Pink
  • Hot Pink
  • Red
  • Icy Blue
  • Icy Lavender
  • Teal, Turquoise, Aqua
  • Silver
  • Gold
I would also like to focus on floral and geometric prints for spring -like this one:

It is key to remember that not everything you own needs to fit into your spring capsule palette. This is just a guideline to keep your style focused but we can all wear what we like. Next week I'll start planning my spring wardrobe.
