It’s fascinating to me that one can buy a cashmere sweater any month of the year, but it offers us an interesting wardrobe-planning option.
Think of this: you choose a color that you’d like to add to your wardrobe – maybe a bright or pastel accent, maybe a new neutral.
Over the next 6 months, you gradually add things to your wardrobe, and by the time autumn comes (or spring, depending on what hemisphere you call home!) you will have an accessory family in your new color!
Maybe you already own a piece or two in your color; I’m thinking of doing some deliberate shopping to get more mileage out of my purple cashmere crewneck sweater!
One really excellent item per month is a much easier way to shop…
This can be useful if you’re considering adding a new neutral to your wardrobe – I suspect there are a lot of us who might experiment with camel, or grey!
Of course, you might feel that you really want to bring a new bright color into your wardrobe…
I feel like I’ve never really done a good job of incorporating my purple sweater into my wardrobe, because I’ve never taken the time to find the small things that would make a big difference – purple socks? An amethyst bracelet?
Buying an orphan item doesn’t make sense, right?
