How to create outfits from a (mostly) neutral travel wardrobe

Here are a few more travel outfits from my 2-week capsule wardrobe. I’m in London for color and style training with Red Leopard, so needed clothes that would be comfortable all day. But I also wanted to look put together without a lot of effort, and be able to change it up a little from day to day.

On Saturday, we wrapped up six (solid!) days straight of color training. I was wiped out but exhilarated at the same time. During this week, I opted for mostly neutral outfits. When we do color analysis, we’re standing behind a seated model, both facing a mirror, and I’m draping different color fabrics to compare the effect on their skin. I didn’t want what I was wearing to distract what I was seeing from the color drapes.

Scarves and bracelets added a pop of color.

The weight of the clothing I packed has been perfect. The sweaters (or a lighter top and sweater jacket) have been comfortable indoors. I haven’t had time to do much sightseeing, but when I have been walking outdoors, the packable down coat (current version) is just right.

The real MVP of this travel wardrobe so far has been the Madewell chore sweater jacket. I’ve worn this multiple times, and always receive compliments on it. (I’m wearing the XS.) I’ll definitely be packing this one again for future trips!

By Saturday night though, I was ready to bust out some COLOR. Manina had invited me to join her with some friends for dinner, so I opted for this coral sweater jacket. (Here’s another option in Misses, Petite, Plus, and Plus Petite.)

Were I to style this look again, I’d probably opt for the ivory sweater to give it a bit more ooph.

Today we begin training on the Style Personalities. I’ll share more of my London travel outfits later in the week.
