WHAT IS A COLOR PALETTE?

Palettes are the building blocks of your baby or toddler's capsule wardrobe. Each color in your palette should compliment the others, giving you countless options to combine pieces into adorable outfits with little to no effort.

1.

Stick to a limited number of colors - three or four is ideal

Start by choosing a main color and two accent colors. The main color will be the one that dominates their wardrobe and sets the tone for the entire capsule.

Your main color should be a neutral on the darker side of the spectrum--think navy, grey or brown. The base color is going to serve as an anchor, so it should be bolder than the others.

Once you've decided on the main color, it's time to choose 2-3 accent colors. These should be complementary neutral colors that will help to round out the capsule--ivory and beige are always safe, but more vibrant colors pink and turquoise will also do nicely, as they work harmoniously with other colors.

 With these three colors in mind, you'll be well on your way to creating a stylish and cohesive capsule wardrobe for your little one.

ADD PATTERN

Once your base colors are established, add visual interest in the form of prints and patterns. Colorful dots and stripes add interest, but still coordinate within the framework of your base colors.

And...we're going to let you in on a little industry secret. Both camouflage and leopard/cheetah are neutral enough that they can match literally any other colors. Don't believe me? Just try it and see.
