Beige Capsule Wardrobe with Accessories in Celadon Green, Brown and Light Blue

To show how very versatile these "accessory families" can be, I chose six beige garments for today. From these six pieces I put together six outfits. Then I picked three of the families from last week, and show each of those against the beige outfits.

Some of the families that had a really strong silver or "cool" cast to them didn't dance terribly nicely with the beige, but these warmer accessories just look wonderful with the simplicity of the classic garments.

So many possibilities...

  1. Beige, brown with gold and I am happy. Oddly enough, even as I am graying, these are still good colors for me.

  2. That first set of colors are gorgeous for spring! So always inspire Janice.

  3. Now we're talking my colors --what a wonderful way of minimizing purchases and maximizing the variety of looks --thank you !

    1. I could also see teal, rust, warm red, burgundy, forest green, or purple used here in accent clusters.

    2. And how about warm ballet pink, navy, cream, black, pale dusty blue, soft coral or turquoise? The options seem endless!

  4. Dazzling post! I'm now on a serious verdigris accessories quest. What other color tags, Janice, besides seafoam and laurel green and eucalyptus, do you suggest that I might try?

  5. Love the brown with gold with the beige. Of course, I would have to add a bag with personality, something like the ones that Burberry made this past year.
