This month let's focus on getting our wardrobes in better shape! I'm challenging you, but challenging myself, too, to give our closets an overhaul, so that at the end of the month, our winter capsule wardrobes are perfect for us.
Seasonal Color Analysis for January Jumpstart ~ Four Weeks to Create Your Best Winter Capsule Wardrobe...
Here's the four-week process I have in mind...
(1) Week One: Wear the colors that flatter you most. This is the guideline, so go through your closet and weed out anything that doesn't work for you. If you don't know your season, find out first, so that your closet can become a reflection of your color palette.
(2) Week Two: Find the right level of contrast. Depending on which season you are, you may need low, low-medium, medium, medium-high or high contrast in your outfits. Once you know which it is, you can put together a wardrobe plan so that each outfit replicates the level of contrast in your coloring.
(3) Week Three: Create a winter capsule designed to make the most of your coloring and level of contrast. So as you began to plan your winter capsule wardrobe, if you noticed any gaps in colors that match your season or pieces you need to create the contrast you need in your outfits, make a list of what would fill in those gaps and begin looking for what you need.
Meanwhile, create the best capsule you can with what you have.
(4) Week Four: Identify a favorite outfit or "go to" uniform that you can rely on again and again as part of your winter capsule wardrobe. After several weeks of road-testing your winter capsule wardrobe, hopefully, you will have begun to identify the outfits you like best, that also like you best!
When you can identify a style of outfit or uniform that you know will work no matter what the individual pieces are, you can use this again and again.
Ready to get started? We'll check in each week on Wednesday and review the plan for the coming week and share our progress. You can let me know how you're doing in the comments.

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints
