So I thought about how this quote applies to the wardrobes that I build – let’s try on Chanel’s advice!
First, two suits: one black, one taupe. Now, to me, a suit is a jacket, pants, a skirt AND a dress. (sometimes, nothing looks better than a dress and jacket). Yes, I’m taking the definitions very loosely…
Next, you need the things that go with the 2 suits. One twinset that matches a suit, and another twinset in an accent color. One turtleneck that matches one of the suits, and a turtleneck or other sweater in an accent color. And of course, a light, neutral blouse, and a light, neutral tee shirt type top.
And finally, you’re going to need jeans. And let’s thrown in a pair of velvet pants – just for fun. And a really amazing, statement skirt. Another solid top in a tee shirt type style (this one’s silk, so it can be worn dressy or not), and a few things that combine the two colors of your wardrobe, and I’d say you’re set for a long time to come.
