Nonetheless, we shall endeavor to make progress!
Any way you look at it, that’s one amazing photograph!
So starting with the neutral grey that our friend requested; a simple, classic pair of pants, and a pair of comfortable but still attractive loafers is pretty much where EVERY wardrobe starts, on The Vivienne Files!
I’m sticking with VERY simple silhouettes, to start. We’re going to have enough wrangling later, with colors….
A classic pair of jeans, and an equally classic tuxedo-style shirt finish off our first day’s choices. While none of these pieces, on their own, will blow your hair back with excitement, having them all in your wardrobe gives you a good basis upon which to show off your favorite accessories! And your more colorful and “statement” wardrobe additions will have some “anchors” if you’re careful to start simply…
Yes, admittedly, this is pretty basic, and tremendously neutral. That’s the strength of these pieces!
And don’t lose sight of the fact that you’ve already got 8 outfits, just from these 5 pieces. Imagine what the addition of just a scarf and an accent cardigan will do for this fledgling wardrobe.
Tomorrow, things get more… colorful, certainly, but also more challenging! Join in to see if this is going to work…
