It’s a celebration of colour, creativity and community and the idea is to inspire you to experiment and play a little with your wardrobe - and mostly to have fun with your style!!
Everyday there will be a colour prompt to follow, and although I won’t be sharing “live” outfits (as I’ll be at work and my work wardrobe is a bit limited currently due to my rather large baby bump!) I thought it would still be fun to dig through the many outfit pics I have on my phone and share some of my favourite colourful combinations!
If you’d like to join in, check out @ColoringOurClosets on Instagram!
The daily prompts are in the graphic to the right.
My Colour Story
I’m someone who has always loved incorporating colour into my wardrobe. Even when I discovered capsule wardrobes and more minimalist fashion back in 2015, I always tried to include colour and pattern into my style as it was a way for me to express my creativity and personality (and bright colours just make me feel happier!)
I even made a few Youtube videos sharing my #ColourfulCapsuleWardrobe and tips on how to create a colourful capsule, as it was something that seemed lacking in the minimalist style scene. Just because we like simplicity and smaller, more edited closets, doesn’t mean it has to be all about the neutrals and I wasn’t seeing a lot of people sharing more colourful capsules!
While I do find it easier to add in more colour and print in the summer months (you know I adore my beautiful bright dresses!) I do still like to add in a few pops of colour in winter as they always bring a smile to my face!
Colourful Wardrobe Inspiration and Tips
I thought I’d dig through the archives of the blog and round up a few of my old posts and videos about Colourful Capsule Wardrobes, in the hopes that they can inspire and help you to add a little more fun and colour to your own wardrobe if you want to!
I know sometimes people think it’s not possible to have a more minimal wardrobe if they’re lovers of print and brighter shades, but I can definitely tell you it is totally do-able - you just need to put a little thought into it in the beginning to make sure you have your more neutral basics covered. These will be the “glue” holding everything together and making all your fun pieces more versatile!
