Let’s say that you’ve got a well-established core wardrobe of the essentials, in mostly black. So you decide, this fall, you’re going to use this amazing painting as the inspiration for your purchases – your “French 5-Piece Wardrobe” for this season:

Once you have the basics in place, it doesn’t take a lot to really personalize your wardrobe!
