How to choose a baby capsule wardrobe color palette

WHAT IS A COLOR PALETTE?


The first thing I always see experts say about building a capsule wardrobe is "choose your palette." But what does that even mean?

A color palette is a selection of 4-6 colors that will serve as your guard rails. As long as you stick to these colors, you'll be able to mix and match within the capsule wardrobe without having to think about it.

Establish your base

There are certain magical colors that match EVERY other color. These should be your base colors. 

-Light Grey
-Dark Grey
-Pink
-Navy
-Light Blue
-Turquoise

Tops & Bottoms

Lighter colors should always go on top. Babies in diapers have accidents, and unless you want to spend your life scrubbing out poo stains, well...just pick dark-colored pants!

Pick your pops

Now for the fun part! Once you've established a base of neutrals, you can play with pops of color. Layering pieces like sweaters, hats, tights and socks are great places to work in brighter colors.
