How to style a grey-based capsule wardrobe | Late Summer 10×10 Challenge Outfits

Yes, I know you have your doubts, but grey is a colour too and in the right combination, it can actually become an accent colour in itself, not just a neutral. 

I like a lot of black and white and reds, navies and now grey. And I really like pushing myself to create outfits within the confines of themes.

Usually, when doing capsules (this is my 4th this year), the difficulty is making pieces work together, especially if you have prints or loads of colours. For this one, I had the opposite problem. How can I make things look interesting with just three colours to work with and all three neutrals to boot. I did get a bit of help from my trusty red accessories (scarf and earrings), but I also made things harder by only using two pairs of shoes, black and silver.

I am looking forward to showing you what I ended up with and of course,  to hear what you think.

10 ideas to style a navy-based capsule wardrobe | Me-Made-May 2018

Me-Made-May seems such a long time away now, but I still owed you pictures of the second part of my DIY 10×10 challenge. Me-May-Made is an annual challenged in the maker community when we pledge to wear our hand-made wardrobe more than we usually do, be it one item each day or entirely hand-made throughout the month. My personal challenge this year was inspired by the Style Bee 10×10 Challenges, where you need to choose 10 items to be styled into 10 outfits over 10 days. So I decided to put together 3 capsules in May, which consisted of at least 70% hand-made, and style them into different outfits, each containing at least one handmade item each day. I was partially successful in my challenge, and I achieved two of the there capsules. I continued to wear all handmade for the remaining 10 days, I just could not figure out a theme to build a capsule around it with my remaining hand-made items.

I can’t tell if the Style Bee Spring 10×10 challenge whizzed by because I enjoyed it so much or because it made getting dressed in the mornings so much easier, or both. In any case, the fact is that it’s already over. But the good news is that I have a…
