Today’s step will bring our second neutral color more fully into our capsule wardrobes, by the addition of another “suit-like ensemble” in this color. Please note that you can choose a really different cardigan style from your first one, or you could choose a jacket – even a denim jacket!
And I’m opting for ballet flats for this color – no matter what shoes I choose, someone somewhere is going to detest them and want something very different. I’m including these in a really neutral style mostly for illustrative purposes – I want to focus on the role that a second pair of shoes, in a different color, will play. Tomorrow, when I show outfit options, this 2nd pair of shoes will make a big difference.
