Episode #1 Foundation Pieces
A functional wardrobe is a sensible wardrobe. Every closet must have the basics in order to be versatile. Here are a few key items that should be in your closet:
I know what you are thinking but don't be alarmed by all of the black. Remember, these are foundation pieces. Therefore, it is the platform to add colour. These subtle additions of colour are what I like to call building blocks. They are pieces that add dimension to your wardrobe.
When purchasing new additions for your closet, focus on items that will work well with existing pieces. The goal is to diversify your looks with occasional finds. However,veering too far away from the foundation can become a slippery slope. Buying an item that doesn't coordinate with what you have will encourage you to make added purchases to accommodate a single item which, can lead to closet overload. Therefore, if it doesn't work with your basics, skip it.
