Over the past couple of years, as I’ve strived to be more thoughtful about what I add to my closet, I’ve found myself naturally gravitating toward a colour palette for each season. I don’t find that it really happens intentionally; it just slowly comes about as I notice what I’m drawn to every fall or spring.
This season, it’s definitely all been about black, grey, and white (see here, here, here…). Almost everything I’ve added to my closet or have pulled out to wear again has fallen in this colour scheme. And as it’s organically happened, I’ve found it to become kind of a looser, less time consuming version of a capsule wardrobe, where everything goes with everything, and each piece is very well-loved and well-worn. Having a strong foundation that I feel comfortable and fully myself in has also made it more fun and effortless to add unexpected elements, like a bold lip, a pop of colour, or a fun pair of earrings. Plus, the older I get the more I want to just do “uniform dressing”, and I feel like this approach is a move in that direction! Here are some of the pieces in heaviest rotation this winter…
Bag | A.P.C (a few more minimalist, structured options here, here, and here)
Sweater | Equipment (also a fan of this turtleneck, plus a slightly shorter, more lightweight version here)
Toque | Club Monaco (old)
