Links à la Mode, July 20th
Are you the sort of person who feels like you kind of know what style you’d absolutely love, but time and time again you end up buying clothes that will just do for ‘now’?
Maybe you feel as though you’ve nailed getting the fit right, but everything else about your overall look is a bit ‘meh’. Perhaps you have a default uniform you automatically go to, but it just doesn’t excite you or fill you with joy. Worst still, you may even see others wearing the exact same outfit and feel they look amazing in it? What is the hell up with that?
This is the final post in my series on colour where I’ll be wrapping up everything I covered in my previous posts and explaining how you can use that new found knowledge and apply it to your wardrobe. If you’ve not read any of the previous posts in this series then I’d definitely recommend going back and checking them out; part one, part two, part three. They lay the foundation needed to add more colour to your wardrobe.
This is the third instalment of my colour series, if you’ve not read my previous posts I’d recommend you check them out first, part 1, part 2. In the last instalment, I introduced you to colour harmonies, explaining what they were and sharing some basic examples. If you’re the sort of person who struggles to put outfits together with different colours (hello all black everything!) then colour harmonies will guide you to make sure the colours you wear work well together.
This post follows on from Introducing more colour into your personal style. If you’ve followed my previous post you may be in a position where you’ve gone through your wardrobe and identified whether there are any colour themes. You may have also been searching for inspiration to build a colour palette and played with different palettes to work out what colours you like.
I’m sure you’ve come across the term capsule wardrobebefore. You’ll find many different interpretations if you search on Google or even Pinterest. So I wanted to take some time to explain what a capsule wardrobe is, the benefits of building one, and the steps you’ll need to follow if you’re interested in creating your own capsule wardrobe.
