Diva's Fashion Guide: How to Create a Colorful Capsule Wardrobe in 5 Easy Steps

When most fashion experts talk capsule collections, the staple pieces in your closet, they often mention garments in neutral tones. Well everyone doesn't wear neutrals. I am one of them. I colorblock and pattern mix more often than not, yet manage not to look like a dizzying mess. There is a way to turn colored pieces into your basics, this is how.

1. Jewel Tones Over Neons

Jewel tones, i.e. emeralds, sapphires, and rubies, are bold, yet not bright. They are easily paired with solids and other jewel tones.

2. Carry a Bold Colored Handbag

Many think only black, tan, grey, or beige can be paired with everything. However, when most of your wardrobe is jewel toned, carrying a deep blue, magenta, or mustard handbag can make your look pop!

3. Step Up Your Staples

Yes, a little black dress is a must, but try the same silhouette in magenta, mustard, deep red, or blue

4. Eye Catching Trousers

Anchor your ensembles with colorful trousers. Pair with a neutral top and shoes for a  added punch.

5. Vibrant Coats

Add finishing touches with a statement coat. Choose a color that is complimentary to most of the vibrant colors in your wardrobe.
