One of my friends has long black hair, an outrageous personality, and works in advertising. This is for her!
Please bear in mind that I couldn’t wear this. But it takes all kinds, and doing this wardrobe made it clear to me that the concept of core garments works for any style or personality.
I’ve noticed that the most straightforward way for me to “build” a wardrobe is to start with the scarf and work from there.
And as I think about it, this could be a good strategy for anybody looking for some guidelines and some structure around which to build their clothing choices. The beauty of this approach is that you don’t HAVE to actually own the scarf – you can find one that resonates on a deep level with you (colors, design and theme) and use that as the “keynote”.
Then, any potential garment that isn’t in harmony with your signature scarf needs to be seriously reconsidered. If this keeps happening, maybe you need to re-think your choice of scarf. The beauty of the internet is that it lets you make imaginary purchases which can be re-evaluated over time, before the real money is committed.
