I recently purged a lot of my closet onto the Poshmark app, anyone on there? It’s great because what I was left with are all my basic pieces that may seem rather “blah” to a lot of people, but are essential in my book. Yes, neutrals tend to get a bad wrap simply for being “boring” or “safe.” Well hrmph. I love my dress shirts and my denim staples dammit. And my oversized cozy sweaters with my little booties, yes those are being kept forever.
The professional me always tells clients that neutrals are the building blocks to any strong wardrobe, the staples that aren’t going anywhere. Taking my own advice, I got rid of the trendy overplayed stuff i.e designer pun t’s, holographic bags..etc. Don’t judge me. Anyhoo, the foundation to an easy, yet spot on wardrobe consists of black, white, grey, nude, navy, khaki: all easy colors to mix and match with each other. You can’t build a strong look without nailing down the basics first, right?
This is just my personal take on playing with neutrals, wearing my favorites priced high to low for an easy yet far from dull look anyone can wear :)
