Fresh Start Closet: Mixing It Up
The herringbone pattern adds much more visual interest that a flat color. It's a classic pattern that suits my overall concept and as you can see--very versatile. Gray is much less harsh against skin than straight black.
Previously we talked about adding a cardigan for an added layer and pop of color. I love red with my basic palette of black/white/camel/white. Here's how great it works with the black and white blouse and the pencil skirt. But look again at the six pics above and notice how many of those blouse/scarf combinations this sweater would work with.
Instead of this pencil skirt, I could have gone with jeans or camel pants. With just a few pieces you can pull off dozens of looks without the constant need for more shopping.
