Last month, we introduced you to the 10 pieces in a Year-Round Capsule Wardrobe. These are the fashion staples you should own and wear season to season, year after year. You can make hundreds of outfits with just these pieces. But as the spring season approaches, now is the time to think about key pieces you should have in your seasonal wardrobe or what to shop for this season. Spring's warmer temperatures are the time to incorporate lighter fabrics and brighter colors. Spring season is all about finding the right color palette. Think about what colors you look best in or get compliments when you wear. Add 2 neutral base colors to your spring wardrobe to give you 2-3 accent colors + 2 neutrals to create outfits. The 8 pieces are the foundation to build a capsule wardrobe or to update your spring wardrobe.
