One may end up with nothing to wear because they might have limited themselves to wearing an item just one way (this may happen if we buy head to toe looks). If everything flows from one piece to the next then we are left with many more potential combinations and it is best achieved by having items in core colors.
Here is the list of essential elements in core color Black, and I think it is totally worth to have good quality of following items in the closet:
- Blazer &/or cardigan &/or faux leather jacket
- Trousers &/or Denim
- Top (button down/ turtleneck/sleeveless/ any style)
*Jacket also worn here.
Jacket: Blank NYC (faux leather)
Shoes: Steve Madden (faux leather)
Jeans: Abercrombie and Fitch
Top: Ann Taylor
