Angie - I’m wondering if you ensure that you have essentials replicated across all three of casual / weekend wear , work wear , and your dressy capsule . Replicated in terms of having a navy coat in each of those 3 categories ; a striped top in casual , dressy , and work fabrics etc; if that makes sense ?

My perennial downfall in wardrobe management is the category of essentials . I have trouble keeping work/ casual/ going out capsules separate in my mind and don’t address the needs of each one the way I think I should . I’m thinking I should keep my work collection ( all black ) completely separate from the rest of my wardrobe and focus on developing my “ personal “ clothes in colours I’d rather have , like navy , olive , mustard , teal and cognac . Not sure if that’s a great strategy or not.

I welcome your thoughts .
