True Spring capsule wardrobe

A capsule wardrobe for True Spring, in spring, what could it look like? It would look like pure, exuberant joy.

The essence of the Spring palettes is absolute warm, drenched in sunshine, multiple colours, complimentary colours, lots of movement, in patterns, texture and fabrics.

Good neutrals for the spring palettes are camel, sand, milk chocolate. I am choosing yellow, coral and green for accent colours.

I have linked most items to the online store where I found them (the Norwegian Zalando shop). I am not an affiliate of Zalando, but this is a convenient online store for my Scandinavian clients, who always ask me where they can buy the items.

Cardigan sand
Orange A-line skirt
Milk chocolate brown pants

I use the 1-2-3-4 formula as a start for any capsule wardrobe.

The basics

1 cardigan
2 bottoms (one skirt, one pair of pants)

They could be all neutrals, but I add a skirt in coral.

Yellow top
Floral blouse yellow and apricot
Green floral top
The fun stuff

For the tops, I picked a yellow long sleeve top, an absolutely lovely floral pattern blouse and a floral pattern green top. All these tops can be worn with both the bottoms, creating different looks.


Two scarves, one patterned and one solid colour, a pair of multicoloured dangly earrings and some fun sandals.

Orange and yellow scarf
Multicolour earrings
Multocoloured sandals
Coral scarf
