I love wearing a warm color palette because it makes dressing for aesthetics so much easier. Of course I still love a pop of color, or a statement piece, but when you style around a central color palette, you are able to make better investments in clothes that you will constantly be able to style. A lot of people use the word “wardrobe capsule,” but since I’m not targeting specific items (i.e. pants, jeans, blouses) I instead target the color. It is a very similar concept since most wardrobe capsules are neutral colors, mostly white, black and navy.
Neutral colors are so easy to incorporate, and once you have a strong foundation you can add more colors. For example, I tend to buy mostly white, camel, pink, burgundy, red, blush and beige. I can also style white with navy, beige with white, and black with burgundy. As long as you have a solid foundation of neutral colors, the styling options are endless!
When I was in college I was the most random shopper. I would buy whatever caught my eye, and it was generally the most crazy thing in the store. What ended up happening was that I found it difficult to style the piece since the majority of my items were statement pieces, or hard to style in other ways. I have now learned to be more cautious with my purchases and understand the “cost-per-wear” mantra.
For this look I styled my color-blocking cashmere sweater with some pastel pink pants. I love this cozy outfit topped off with the camel coat and heels. Of course you can’t forget my Chloe bag that I intentionally purchased to style all year round. These photos were shot at the cutest location ever, Tea Bar in Portland. They have the cutest and yummiest boba tea. I actually meant to order the pink colored drink, but ended up with this yummy vanilla-flavored one instead. You know you’re extra when you start ordering food to match your outfits 😛 When you want to keep your aesthetic on point, you gotta do what you gotta do.
