Autumn Capsule Wardrobe 2014


Now's the time to think about what to add to your Autumn capsule wardrobe to take it in to Winter. It may be that you want to add a new seasonal colour, some pieces for the party season, and some pieces to keep you warm and stylish.
If you want to add a new colour to an existing capsule wardrobe, I would ideally add 3-4 pieces in that colour so that it can be used with all of the neutrals you already have. In this example I'm adding a new accent colour - claret (which will work well with an existing Autumn capsule based around navy and grey neutrals for example). I am also adding a completely new neutral of chocolate brown.
The chocolate pieces include casual day wear and a pair of classic boots as well as some pieces for parties. The claret pieces also include day and evening items. I have also added a bit of sparkle in gold and some neutral cream knitwear. These additions will make 21 outfits alone before you take into account the pieces you already have.
So here are the coloured groups:
First the brown neutral pieces – for a whole new neutral group add at least 3 pieces including tops and bottoms and maybe a dress and accessory.

The claret pieces add a splash of colour and work well together

The cream neutrals will mix and match with all your bottoms and the lovely gold adds a festive bit of sparkle.

With these few simple pieces you can then mix and match to make 21 outfits!  From Smart Casual to formal.  Enjoy!
