The speaker has isolated a color palette that reflects this energy, including navy, white, off-white, shades of blue, and a bit of gray. She explains how these colors work together to create a beautiful, classic, timeless, and versatile color palette.
The speaker then goes on to explain the pieces she has selected for her capsule wardrobe, which include tops, a sandy-colored sweater set, a silk tank top, a cropped cashmere sweater cardigan, and a blue silk shirt. She discusses the silhouettes and styles of each piece and how they fit into the color palette and style words for the capsule wardrobe.
For bottoms, the speaker has included a pair of long white pants with a wider leg, a pair of navy pants, and a navy midi skirt. She explains how these pieces can be mixed and matched with the tops to create a variety of outfits.
The speaker also includes some accessories in the capsule wardrobe, such as a navy scarf, navy ballet flats, and white sneakers. She discusses how these accessories can be used to complete the outfits in the capsule wardrobe.
