One thing that I’ve noticed after many years of wearing clothes is that I feel like my capsule wardrobe is better balanced if I have more “tops” than “bottoms”. Two to one seems a pretty workable ratio for me, and so in search of this it’s time to grab a couple more blouses, tee shirts, or sweaters. This is an ideal time to introduce a pattern, if you wish, or to bring in more of your accent colors. If you found that you really preferred wearing light neutral blouses, those are perfect for this step.
And a necklace… Some days when I’m walking in downtown Chicago, I make a point of looking specifically for necklaces, and I’m always kind of shocked that I don’t see very many. A semi-precious stone or fabric necklace can completely change the look of an outfit, bringing colors together, adding texture and lustre or sparkle, or reinforcing an accent color. Bring on the necklaces!
