You have work/dress clothes, & you have weekend/play clothes--never the two shall meet? But do you have some work/dress clothes that are so dressy they're too much trouble to wear? Or you feel too conservative & dressed up in them? Pull out your t-shirts & jeans. See if you might match some dressier items with them.
"Clothes mean nothing unless someone lives in them."
We set up artificial boundaries for our clothes--work clothes, play clothes, dress clothes. Allow them to stray back and forth, and you'll find you have twice as many outfits.
Would you consider wearing a crisp white long-sleeve shirt with your leggings?
Opposite Colors (maybe not opposite but unexpected): Deep Red + Icy Blue; Deep Purple + Green
We're used to pairing black with its polar opposite white. But don't stop there: try other unlikely mates.
Deep red & icy blue:
Deep purple & green
You've been struggling for ages to pair the fabrics just right--a silky blouse with a silky jacquard skirt, for example.
This matchmaking is hard work and may result in just one outfit. So why not try a wool sweater with a lace or tulle skirt? A silk blouse with a tweed or corduroy skirt? Who knew they'd get along so well?
What do you think? Do the combos work?
Let's help each other get more of our clothes into action. Please share other styles we might mix, color combinations we should try, fabrics we might pair together.
