Step Into A Lively Spring, Step Into Garden-Fresh Colours.
It is time to step into Spring and enliven your wardrobe with the new season’s garden-fresh colours.
If you’re tired of navy, grey and black coats or frequently-worn puffer jackets, then this beautiful wake-up blue coat, which is the key piece of the capsule below, will be a tonic after the cold dark days of another difficult Winter.
Think of nature’s garden, alive with fresh Spring colours and you’ll be on track for this year.
Key seasonal colours range from cool pastel pink, popcorn yellow, fresh acidic green, warm coral rose, orchid mauve and of course a vibrant mid-blue to mention a few.
Core or base colours include white Alyssum (gardeners amongst you will be familiar with these gorgeous white flowers), humus beige, a light grey fog and poppy seed anthracite set off the cheerful colours of Spring perfectly.
Early Spring Capsule Wardrobe
I’ve put together a simple 7-piece capsule wardrobe plus accessories.
From this capsule you can make at least 8 outfits and you may already have a pair of navy or grey trousers.
If you’re looking to update your wardrobe, I’ve chosen some new-style pull-on navy pants and a pair wide-legged softly tailored grey ones.
There’s also plenty of scope to expand the capsule further as your core pieces are in neutral colours. See below for ideas.
How to wear this capsule
Business style has very much morphed from a Formal suited-and-booted look to a more Business Relaxed style. Gone too are the days when you needed to wear a suit or jacket but choose tops that are chic and are of made of quality fabrics.
In my opinion it’s still a good idea to have one or two blazers in your wardrobe.
They tend to give you a straight shoulder-line and add ‘balance’ to your look.
CWC style tip: if trousers have a loop, wear a belt so you look ‘finished’.
Nothing says smart more quickly than a dress.
And today dress lengths vary from above the knee to on the knee, from the popular midi to even longer. Yes even for day wear. Add a pair of heels and you’ll look business-ready.
How to extend this capsule wardrobe further
You can extend it further by adding a pair of on-trend leather culottes.
And by introducing another seasonal accent colour such as the acidic green.
