I have been reading through The vivienne files posts on starting a wardrobe from scratch series and I really liked her idea of starting a wardrobe with two neutrals and two accent colours. Well, lo and behold, turns out that forum member E had already embarked on this idea three years ago http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....l-wardrobe
and now is a proud owner of a large functional wardrobe. Suz is also building her wardrobe along the same lines and if seeing her outfits, I know that she has done a brilliant job.
In order for me to do this, I first have to come up with two neutrals as my core. I am hoping that some of you will be able to help me choose a neutral. I have decided to pick navy as one of my neutrals but am not sure about the second neutral. I look dreadful in grey and black around my face so those two are out. Brown and cream are the two options I am looking into. I also have a few items in white but can white be my neutral to wear all year round?
I am attaching a few items that I have in navy/denim that I already have in my wardrobe. I also own a denim jacket and a pair of slim black trousers. For accent colours with navy, I am thinking yellow and green.
All suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
