This week I am piggybacking off of last week’s post and doing a cool palette winter capsule wardrobe. Last week was the warm palette winter wardrobe and I mentioned how the cool palette is always more popular and my reasons why I think that may be.

This cool palette wardrobe has an injection of some brighter colours, some that you would think might fall under a warm palette, but I’ll explain why it works here.

We will start with the pink clutch.

Besides its fuzziness, the best part of it is its balanced watermelon colour.

Not specifically warm or cool, it falls in the middle and will change based on what you pair it will. Since this is a predominantly cool wardrobe it will take on those cool undertones and work seamlessly with everything.

But if I took it and matched it with last week’s warm palette wardrobe it would take on the warmer undertones and work there as well bringing out some fun combinations.

This also applies to the pink waterproof boots because they fall within the same tone of pink and will work in both warm and cool palette wardrobes.

Or you can be like me and have a complete mixture of all palettes.

I added more of a waterproof rain boot versus a hardcore winter boot, because let’s be honest. Heavy-duty boots aren’t fun.

We wear them when necessary, and when we can choose another option we often do.

These are a fun, chunky sole, shorty boot that you can make warmer by adding a fleece sock liner, or a sheepskin insole.

It’s already December here and it briefly snowed and immediately melted a couple of weeks ago, and aside from that, I have been wearing regular footwear.

The weather is obviously different based on your demographic and for many people, a boot like this will work throughout the colder, wetter seasons.

When I think of cool wardrobe palettes my mind immediately goes to blue which both makes complete sense and was once the reason I steered away from this palette.

Because I hated blue which I know I remind you a lot. But if you could really understand the depths of the hatred I had towards that hue.

It was weird.

I have had a complete turnaround and actually seek it out now which both shocks me and makes me happy that I have finally seen the light.

So this palette focuses heavily on blues and greys in different tints, shades, and tones.

Remember tints, shades and tones mean different things which I talked about in this post which might be helpful to read through if you are looking to add more colour to your wardrobe.

It is about using the colour wheel to get dressed.

Anyway, I included a brightly knit dickie in this winter capsule wardrobe because yes, they are back. And so are balaclavas.

Those things that your grandma used to knit and that your parents would force you to wear in the 80s when it was cold outside.

I hated them then but might be on board with them now.

Not the balaclava I don’t think I can do one of those, but the dickie for sure.

Tibi has one that is really neat with a chewed hem.

You just toss it over anything for an interesting layering piece that actually serves a purpose and could add a jolt of colour.

See, this is why I love winter.

The clothing options have so much more personality.

Layering is one of my favourite parts of dressing, so when summer comes I tend to feel lost in my wardrobe.

So with this I tried to inject some fun into your winter capsule wardrobe to help brighten up even the drabbest days, and boy there have been a lot of drab days this week.
