New You: Wardrobe Plan

Nancy's just posted the last part of the current wardrobe plan, and she says that going forwards "we'll talk about where you might go from here to build in more variety And after that we'll spell out the concepts at work here so you can get similar results in your own wardrobe whether you follow this specific formula or not."
Summary is as follows:-

Garments
Dark neutral colour e.g. Chocolate brown - Trousers, Skirt, Cardigan/jacket/shirt, Top
Lighter neutral colour e.g. Camel - Trousers, Skirt, Cardigan/jacket/shirt, Top
Accent colour e.g. Turquoise - Cardigan/jacket/shirt, Top
Print including all 3 colours - Skirt and Top

Accessories
Dark neutral colour e.g. Chocolate brown - Shoes, bag and belt
Lighter neutral colour e.g. Camel - Shoes
Both neutrals together - Bag, Necklace, Scarf
All 3 colours together - Necklace, scarf, pashmina
Accent colour e.g. Turquoise - Necklace.

If I try to interpret this in my chosen colours it looks something like this....

Garments
Dark neutral colour e.g. Chocolate brown - Trousers, Skirt, Cardigan/jacket/shirt, Top - yes except top
Lighter neutral colour e.g. Mocha - Trousers, Skirt, Cardigan/jacket/shirt, Top - yes except skirt
Accent colour e.g. Burnt Orange - Cardigan/jacket/shirt, Top - yes
Print including all 3 colours - Skirt and Top - no but could sew from existing knit fabric

Accessories
Dark neutral colour e.g. Chocolate brown - Shoes, bag and belt - yes though belt is a little casual

Lighter neutral colour e.g. Mocha - Shoes - well nude ones
Both neutrals together - Bag, Necklace, Scarf - bag no, necklace and scarf yes
All 3 colours together - Necklace, scarf, pashmina - yes I think so
Accent colour e.g. Burnt - Necklace. - definitely yes :-)

The Madison Avenue Collection at CC  could be made to work in a Nancy type plan, in shades of chocolate, camel and ochre with accessories and everything.

Ruthie, I never heard of Nancy Rix-Rice before - the tutorials are great and it was from one of her posts that I thought I need to add some beige to my Navy collection.

thanks for the link.
