Why Is A Colour Palette Important?
The correct capsule wardrobe colour palette can make all the difference in your overall appearance. Choosing the correct colours and initially limiting those colours, will make it much easier to create outfits and reduce decision fatigue. Finding the colours that suit you will make you look younger, healthier and enhance your natural features.
Consider The Colours That Suit You
Choosing the correct colours for your capsule wardrobe colour palette is an essential part of building a capsule wardrobe. There are several elements that that have to be taken into consideration when building a capsule wardrobe so that it works in the long term and contuses to serve you. Those elements are;
- A small selection of colours that suit you.
- Styles that suit your body shape
- Rediscovering what you love
- Quality based on your needs and wash cycle
- Your lifestyle needs
Many private clients come to me and ask if they have to have only neutral colours in their capsule. The answer is no. You can have neutral (canvas) colours in your capsule if you choose to, but you can also have brighter shades (paint) colours or more commonly a mixture of both.
Once you know which colours suit you, I recommend choosing under eight to start off with. If you prefer neutrals choose only neutrals, if you prefer brighter colours choose brighter, but if you are not sure, I recommend choosing a mixture of both. Consider 3-4 canvas colours and 3-4 paint colours. By having a base of canvas colours that work for you and then topping the capsule wardrobe colour palette with paint colours will make it much easier to mix and match colours when creating an outfit.
How To Pick An Outfit From Your Capsule
With your capsule wardrobe colour palette chosen you should now have a limited collection of colours to choose from. Ultimately it makes it much easier to select an outfit.
There is a simple way to choose an outfit that looks stylish every time.
Want to know what it is?
When choosing an outfit select three colours or less. Even better, choose two canvas colours and one highlight paint colour.
It keeps an outfit looking chic and stylish in no time.
