Spring Capsule Wardrobe 2019

I have decided NOT to buy an off the shelf spring capsule e book for Spring and instead try and make up my own. So now I am in the middle of planning my own capsule wardrobe using what I have learnt over the last 4 seasons using someone else ideas.

I have been thinking about what colours suit me now that I have grey hair. All my life I have worn autumnal colours. Green and brown went really nicely with my auburn hair – which was natural once! Now that I don’t dye it anymore and the grey is more dominant I have been noticing that some colours suit me better than others.

I watched this video on You Tube and it made a lot of sense and gave me the idea to use some different colours.

So I then decided to buy a few t-shirts in some different colours to convince me which colours now suit me. I put on my sun glasses because I did not want to screw my eyes up, but also because I think I look cool 😂

Doing this has also made me look at the necklines of the t- shirts and thinking if some look better than others.

What do you think?

The only one I don’t like is the grey one. I think I should stick to wearing grey on my bottom half and not close to my face.

Back to the capsule then. I need to decide what colours I will use as the base of the capsule and what accent colours I will use to contrast with the base colour.

I think I will choose navy blue as my base colour, but I haven’t quite decided on the accent colours yet. It will depend on what fabrics I can buy and what colour the manufactures have decided we are buying this year! Always annoys me that someone has made the decision for me what colour t shirt I can buy in a particular year.

I have thought about what groups of clothing I need. Obvious really but these are what I need to consider :

  1. Coats/Jackets/Gilets
  2. Tops -Blouses/T Shirts/Tunics
  3. Trousers/Jeans/Skirts
  4. Dresses
  5. Shoes/Boots/Sandals
  6. Accessories- bags, belts, scarves, jewellery

Before I go and buy anything I need to go through my stored items at home – although I have a rough idea of what I have got stored away, I know there will be some things that I have forgotten about!

So, for now, I’ll carry on planning and let you know what’s in my Spring capsule in March.
