Spring Capsule Review

Here are some of the outfits I wore from my Spring capsule. After putting together this capsule at the end of March, I added several other items to it, but kept to my color palette of navy, denim, white and various tints of magenta, pink and lilac. 

(Edited to add individual photos)

New purchases (in Finds) included a berry color moto jacket, a lilac moto jacket, navy tulle skirt, a multicolor paisley dress and two pairs of platform sandals I love and will wear into the summer. Other items such as hiking pants, plaid pants, blue off shoulder top, light blue jacket came from my closet. 


Coming up with a color palette for the season seems to work well for me, because it helps me see gaps and focus on purchases that work well with other items, but I do need more variety than I originally planned for. 

My most worn items according to Stylebook were my white hobo bag, straight leg faded and frayed ankle jeans, pearlized light taupe high tops and a pair of multicolor statement earrings. One thing I learned from this capsule is the way I prefer to wear color is generally one color plus neutrals.

    KILLER all round! You dress beautifully every day. A capsule that is superbly suited to you, Lana :)

    Please wear skirts and dresses more often! #2, 5, 6 and 7 are my faves, and #8!

    #6 with the tulle tartan skirt and off-the-shoulder top is KILLER to the POWER of KILLER. I fainted when I saw it....

    What a great capsule. Seems to have worked well. You added but you could tell what to add (!)

    Lana, why don't you load each of your KILLER outfit pics separately in the photo section of this post. Then we can admire them more deservingly :) Many people look at the forum on their phones, so the one frame with 8 outfits ends up VERY small, and doesn't do your awesome looks justice, IYKWIM.

    Fantastic outfits, Lana!  My favourites are #6 and #7.  You have a great spring capsule.

    Thanks Angie!  That’s a great idea so I added the individual photos too. One of my goals for this summer is to wear more skirts and dresses. 


    Thanks Rachylou and Style Fan! I’m surprised the dresses/skirts are favorites but that’s good to know.

    All fab outfits!  I think 2 and 8 are my favorites.  Observation fwiw, so you have identified that you prefer one color with your neutral, that relates to you feeling like something is missing in an all white outfit.

  • Lana replied 8 months ago

    Star that’s an interesting observation! In the case of the all white I think it needs some contrast for me which could be a color or a darker neutral accent since I am so light overall. I know I do feel uncomfortable in two or more colors together unless one of the colors is neutralish to me like any blue. I would wear a most any other color with blue, but red and yellow for example would be too much. Maybe it has to do with cool tones feeling more neutral because generally they recede.

    Ah, yes, now I can see! Thanks for doing that.

    Crossing the streams here, I see several tops/toppers that could work with lilac pants, in 1,2,4,5&8. Pretty much anything in your road trip capsule.

    Thanks for the ideas Stag, I need to have a play date with them. It’s seems like they would work seamlessly but not feeling it yet. Maybe LESS contrast would work better.

    Fantastic outfits! I like how the ruffles play together in #2! Beautiful color palette on you too.

  • Indigoprint replied 8 months ago

    #7 is perfect in everyway. The berries you have focused on seems spot on for you. They seem to effortlessly flow with you neutrals making a cohesive, signature look for you.

    You look great! 1, 4 and 5 are my favorites. Lovely items and great style all around. :)
