This is the step in which each capsule wardrobe is going to start taking on a distinct personality, based on personal needs, preferences, and desires. I'm adding a complete outfit to each of the various wardrobes, based on a variety of scenarios that might be possible.
Starting with Madame Grey and Navy - she's starting to feel that navy is under-represented in her wardrobe, and moreover, she'd like to get a gorgeous, versatile cardigan and a luxury skirt into the mix. Nothing overly dressy; simple and beautiful are what she wants...
And now her wardrobe is this:
|Cardigan – Joseph, white tee – Majestic, navy skirt – Nina Ricci, grey hoodie – Uniqlo, shoes – Reebok, floral blouse – Parker, earrings – Majorica, sweater – Dear Cashmere, navy and grey scarf – Hinge, lavender blouse– Marni Edition, pastel scarf – Twisted Muse, silver grey tee – Hallhuber, pink top– Velvet, lilac tee shirt – Nougat London, grey cashmere cardigan – Jaeger, watch – Fossil, bracelet – Majorica, navy cardigan – Dorothy Perkins, white cotton shirt – Diane von Furstenberg, necklace– Saako Design, pink shirt – Fenn Wright Manson, silver grey trousers – Viyella, grey jeans – Rebecca Taylor, navy trousers – Jacques Vert, skirt – Marc Jacobs, bag – CK Calvin Klein, wedge pumps – Trotters, navy ballet flats – Geox, tasseled flats – Trotters|
Conversely, our Lady Caramel and Black is longing for something edgier - a leather jacket? A simple turtleneck and jeans let the jacket really stand out, and provide useful and versatile pieces for her evolving wardrobe.
|Leather jacket – Jaeger, black turtleneck – Uniqlo, black jeans – R13|

Chere Navy and Beige is longing for a dress for summer, a lightweight sweater to wear with it, and a simple top to give the cardigan the look of a twinset when worn with jeans or trousers.
A really pretty and versatile wardrobe taking shape here!

La Dame de Khaki and Olive realizes that her favorite maroon/burgundy accent color is grossly missing, so she goes all-out in a head to toe outfit for the coming cold weather. The print blouse will certainly look great with olive or beige skirts and pants too...
The colors here are more balanced - that sleeveless floral top will take on a year-round life under the new cardigan!
|Cardigan – Distante, shirt – Zanetti 1965, jeans – J. Brand, beige hoodie – Uniqlo, canvas booties – Matisse, top – Dorothy Perkins, wooden earrings – Hring eftir hring, zigzag infinity scarf - Brazen, Turquoise angora sweater– Roberto Collina,khaki tee – Target, jasper and pyrite necklace– Nangara by Julia Fusinato, turquoise blouse – Ralph Lauren Black Label, tan cashmere cardigan – La Garconne, watch – Armani Exchange, bracelet – Chan Luu, ivory silk blouse – Jaeger, striped scarf – Missoni, olive tee – Shu Moriyama, olive cardigan – Merona, tan trousers – Hallhuber, beige jeans – Morgan, olive trousers – Isabel Marant Etoile, skirt – Vicky Tiel, bag – Longchamp, maroon tee shirt – Linea Weekend, blouse – French Connection, penny loafers – Cole Haan, wedge pumps – French Sole, olive ballet flats – Chloe|
Ms. Black and Grey has run into an irresistible skirt! But she's going to be somewhat practical by adding a truly basic and versatile sweater to this outfit, and by investing in a wonderful scarf in one of her accent colors. Sometimes, you just have to give in to this kind of "whappage" when it occurs.
Picture the skirt with a simple black tee shirt and the denim jacket...

La Belle Brown and Beige is ready for something soft and pretty, but still appropriate for work. It's a skirt, but it's a KHAKI skirt, so we're not too far over the top. Paired with cashmere... mmm....
The khaki skirt goes with virtually everything...
