I am continuing with the idea of creating a capsule wardrobe from scratch, as inspired by The Vivienne Files, but combining this with your Fashion Feng Shui type to build a wardrobe that is consistent with your personal style. I now turn to The Pioneer or Wood type in Fashion Feng Shui. The Pioneer enjoys sporty, comfortable clothes, with the emphasis on blues, greens and florals.
If like me you have retired, you shouldn't have any problems with this wardrobe, however if you work in a formal workplace you may need to adapt the wardrobe to suit your work environment, although obviously it will be ideal for your leisure time!
If you click on the link above to The Vivienne Files, you will see that the first item that Janice selected was a pair of trousers, which definitely suits Pioneers, and I've included three pairs in this capsule. I have similar pairs in my own wardrobe and no doubt you have too. I must admit that I tend to buy striped tops rather than florals, partly because of my fear of appearing like a little old lady, though I do have several floral scarves. (Hopefully my children won't read this post and comment: "But you are a little old lady!")
Pioneers usually have cool colouring, often with blue or green eyes, and a rectangular shaped body. They enjoy casual or sporty clothing, with details such as zips and hoods plus sporty accessories. Pioneers look their best in slim trousers and jeans, with vertical lines and little waist definition.
Even if you're not a Pioneer, you may wish to include some Wood elements such as a floral scarf, a blue top or green accessories when you want to be more competitive or you need to take action to achieve something.
