Although the mixable items of the basic wardrobe allow a lot of slowfashion options, sometime you may feel like mixing it up with a bit of colour. How can you add colours by sticking to your minimalist wardrobe approach? First of all decide on the colour you wish to incorporate. As the basic wardrobe works with a black-white-grey pallet you could choose almost any accent colours. I’ve selected blush pink, yellow and red to illustrate. Depending on the colour I would get 1-2 accessories, 2 tops and an outer layer in this colour. So no more than 5 items and it would give you plenty of options. Here are some ideas (the items are just for illustration purposes, I’m by no means affiliated with these brands):
I love this colour. It is easy to wear for cool skintoned and has a perfect ‘spring is here’ feel to it:
I’m attracted to the colour pallet black-white-gray with a yellow accent. In my opinion yellow adds a fun twist to the otherwise serious attire. Although I love the colour, I don’t like wearing it as a top so I’ll try only accessories instead. A top would give me a lot more options on paper but I know each time I would pass on wearing it as it washes me out. And that is the whole point. Know what you like and what looks good on you. If you are a kind of person who hates wearing scarves because you feel like its going to strangle you, please get a chic top instead. These are just ideas to show you that a little more conceptual thinking regarding your wardrobe purchases will result in being satisfied with less items that is good both for your wallet and the Planet (no pun intended:)) Yellows are tricky, if this is what you want in you wardrobe, make sure to get the same shade of it in your items.
Let’s not forget that beauty products have colour too. You can add a little spice to your outfit by a bit of red nail polish and lipstick. If I wanted to add red to my wardrobe I would choose something like these:
Stay tuned, Wednesday I will the post the outfits from the basic wardrobe. Till then take care! 🙂
