Shop Your Closet
So, for the past several days, I have been seeking new combinations. Yes, I know, I shouldn't have any that I haven't already discovered; after all, I did recommend that we all style in each new item when it enters our wardrobe. But, I have either been too lazy or (should I offer you the opportunity to vote?) spending too much time blogging.
Enter closet shopping. Even if you don't have any new items, you may have combinations you have never tried. Because of the warmth afforded by extra layers, late winter is the perfect time for this project.
Wonder what I have been finding?
- Spring and summer t-shirts to wear under winter sweaters for a flash of color at the neckline.
- Sweaters that will fit under a tailored jacket.
- Sweaters and jackets that can be topped with a belt.
- Silk, cashmere, and cotton tops that can be layered three deep.
As an example, an uncommon color combo I wore yesterday: light taupe crewneck tee ( my hair color), topped by dark brown longsleeve thermal knit (my eye color), plus light blue cashmere cardigan (the complement of my light orange skin) with silver + crystal buttons (again, my haircolor). It works for me.
Results may vary. Some restrictions apply. See your closet for details.
