let’s revisit our friend who had the navy and pink Common Wardrobe. Her accessories look kind of like this:
Since this friend is really dedicated to wearing pink and navy as her core colors, it’s not a stretch of the imagination to assume that she has both a solid navy wrap, and one in solid pink. Additionally, I’ve taken the liberty of giving her a couple of pair of sandals – flat, comfortable sandals, in navy, and in white.
Now I got an email from this lovely friend, telling me that she needs a summer dress. Nothing over the top; just something that is legitimately a dress, and that will be appropriate for picnics, family events, and casual evenings with friends. She’s spotted this little gem at L.L.Bean, but isn’t quite sure how she could wear it.
With her core wardrobe of navy and pink garments and accessories, she has a wealth of choices, from really casual with a denim shirt worn as an overshirt or jacket, to relatively dressy with pink accessories. (Theoretically, the shirts could also be worn UNDER the dress, but I would NOT assume that this was possible). This dress could be a great purchase!
Once you’ve chosen your signature colors, shopping can be much easier, and often much more productive.
Just a reminder – these are the garments in The Common Wardrobe of pink and navy. All are from L.L.Bean.
