The Wardrobe Edit

Adding colour into your wardrobe

By Elena Taggart, The Closet Stylist

After a dreich old Scottish winter it’s time to reach for those mood boosting colours and inject some brights into your wardrobe.  

While there are some colours some of us can’t wear, I do think with a full face of make-up we can all wear whatever colour we want!  Having an idea of which colours work for you can make choices easier. You really don’t have to have your colours professionally “done”, just look at your hair and skin tone.

I have clients where the wardrobe edit leaves really strong veins of certain colours like yellow, orange and green. We all have a signature colour we lean towards. If you add more of that signature colour to the pieces you already have you can’t fail to make it work.
