Summer Mix and Match Capsule Colours




Summer

You will need to select two main complementary colours as the basis for your first mix and match capsule. Later you will need to add one or two lighter or brighter colours as accents, for your blouses and sweaters, and perhaps additional dresses or skirts.

Choose from your best neutrals in your Seasonal Colour Palette as a basis for the colours that you would like to use in creating your new mix and match capsules.

To start with you would select your best dark neutral for your coat and / or your basic suit. Your secondary colour would be for your basic dress, or dress and jacket. You could also use a combination of the two main colours you chose for other items in stripes, checks, tweeds etc.

For example if you have chosen a navy and red mix and match combination for your work capsule, you could use soft white or blue grey as your bright and light colours, and your print could incorporate all of these four colours. Later you could start to add other complementary colours to your overall scheme.

The best neutrals for you are jade or navy with perhaps a rich rose, burgundy, purple, charcoal grey teamed with pastel versions of each colour, and if you are very fair then aqua and blue green, or grey blue with lavender would be a good choice.

For evening wear you might choose rose or soft teal, soft fuchsia, plum and blue red, and if you have darker hair then pewter, spruce or forest green might be best for you

For your casual wardrobe perhaps raspberry teamed with mauve, medium blue or cocoa, watermelon red, medium grey or blue, emerald turquoise or navy and blue grey.

For an easy to use program to give you personalised dressing rules for your height, age and weight, plus your vertical proportions look no further than this!

There are innumerable combinations available for your mix and match colours and you can of course also look at your own collection in the Spring Colour Palette and choose any other combination of colours from there.

Occasion Magic








If you have a special event during the day, it may call for something a little more casual than a sheath. Baby showers, luncheons, or other daytime events call for a feminine look that is a bit more light-hearted.

Softer colours, such as neutrals or pale tones give polish without drawing too much attention. Lower neutral heels or sandals work well with this easier look. A fitted, crisp white shirt and pearls may be just the thing with a skirt that is more draped.
