“This above all: to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.” – William Shakespeare
William Shakespeare said, it best, know thy-self. In order to build an amazing wardrobe I believe the key component is to know thy-self. Life throws so many different curves that we just can’t control, but we can control how we build our wardrobe. Now that we have decluttered and emptied our closet it’s time to get the foundation laid. I want to tell you about few key items that can be building blocks to an amazing wardrobe.
In fashion we are going to use the 80-20 rule. How many of you watched Tyler Perry’s movie “Why did I get married”? They used the 80 -20 rule, but just not about fashion. The rule was about cheating (with the 20 %) on the person you were married to (who is 80% and don’t realize it. In a nutshell this is saying don’t risk what you have for what you think you want. Oh, how I have digressed. How is this pertaining my wardrobe Tabitha? Glade you asked. My closet will use the 80-20 rule, 80% will be basics or those timeless pieces that will be around for years and 20 percent will be whats fun and trendy.
- Tops: Tanks, short-sleeve, long-sleeve, v-neck, crewneck, button down, collar .
Style on Tops; are determined by what feels comfortable and confident on, Also, what your lifestyle allows. For example if you are a stay at home mom, the majority of tops will probably not be button-downs. Once you establish a good balance and choose colors and styles, its time to shop. My basics are pretty diverse in style in every basic color.
Use the neutral color guide to buy
Basics are just that. Nothing more nothing less. Often that timeless pieces in our closet doesn’t pack the punch. If you know what I mean. It could just be plan Jane on a dreary rainy day. Let’s face it some of you are like yahoo! so this is gonna be an easy task for you. On the other hand be careful because comfort doesn’t mean boring. Thats what the 20% is there for. Those trendy items that are colorful and bold, distressed and has rhinestones, even a blazer can add the punch to any of these basic tops.
I love when basics meet with fashion forward trendy looks because not only is that where the fun begins but truly changes your closet into several different looks.
