She was looking for a foolproof color palette; one day, she ran into this gentleman:
She is thrilled – she can see black, white, shades of grey, camel, khaki, brown, and denim blue. These colors ALL go together…
She starts small, with packing for a long weekend. She knows that her denim shirt is perfect under a black sweater and cords…
Now, how can this be foolproof?
- v-neck sweaters are perfect over button-front shirts, OR on their own;
- button front shirts are easy 1st layers or they can be worn without something over them. Now that she has found Petite sizes that have short enough sleeves, and ample enough torsos, she’s all set! and
- black bottoms and shoes…
So this is what she packs:
She knows that she can pack both gold and silver jewelry, because of camel and grey…a few scarves to tie things in together, and she’s set!
The she doubts herself. This is smart – one should definitely review a travel capsule wardrobe BEFORE leaving, and not the first morning away from home!
Can she wear all of these pieces together, in any combination?
(no, we’re not going to look at ALL of the possibilities…)
I think she’s got it!
This kind of wardrobe, in these six colors, can be expanded in a lot of different ways – a denim skirt? Khaki pants? Grey skirt? Grey silk blouse?
I could do this for hours…
