The neutrals for my Autumn and Winter wardrobe are black and grey, with accent colours of red and blue plus a touch of white. I used grey in my Spring and Summer wardrobe too so that will add to the versatility of this wardrobe as some of those pieces will be suitable for warmer autumn days as well as being useful for layering. The advantage of using neutrals throughout the year is that my accent colours will go with all my neutrals though not necessarily with each other. Here's my proposed wardrobe for Autumn and Winter:
My lifestyle is casual, so I'm sticking with a pair of jeans plus some heavier trousers, to be worn with Converse trainers and boots. I have included a wool scarf and jackets rather than lightweight cardigans and as you can see the tops all have long sleeves and two of them are cashmere. As with the Spring and Summer wardrobe, you can create multiple outfits from this basic collection, and I already have similar items in my current wardrobe so I can gradually add pieces to my capsule.
If you were starting a wardrobe from scratch, would you include several pairs of trousers like me, or would your preference be for skirts and dresses?
