13 into 31: your spring wardrobe, sorted

We do love a good capsule wardrobe at Kettlewell, and since the season is a-changing, I thought it was about time for another one. I challenged myself to come up with a full month's worth of outfits from a mere 13 items (and none of this February nonsense, a full 31 days. And not just because it's a pleasing reversal of the 13 items).

Whatever colour palette you favour and whatever your personal style, there might come a time when you need to put together a capsule wardrobe, whether you are travelling for business, needing to live out of a bag for a couple of weeks during a house move or have rapidly lost or gained weight and need a handful of clothes to see you through until your weight 'settles'. Knowing how to put together a wardrobe in colours and styles that suit you will make the entire process easier - you can see that even with the very bright Spring palette, I've still stuck to just a handful of colours, and included two fairly neutral colours - cream and navy - to keep outfit combinations straightforward.

Capsule wardrobes; not just for boring people.

I too would like to know where to get the skirt, jacket and top from.

I like capsule wardrobes, but am useless at getting it right and have no imagination!! I am a Winter person and would love a capsule wardrobe for at least 2 seasons of the year, updated on an annual basis. Thank you

Please make top 7! It's lovely!

It would be good if you could do the above for all the seasons, not just spring, as I am an autumn person, and find it hard to identify with some of the colours above. Thanks.!

Thank you - I love these capsule wardrobe posts! Would be a great sales tool for Kettlewell if you could create these for each colour season when the new range is launched :-)
