Project 333 – Plains & Prints

1 Comment

Today I had a blinding flash regarding the items in my wardrobe.

2012-05-14 02I have plain shorts (black, white and khaki) and plain trousers (black, white and jeans).  I can wear patterned tops with these (striped, floral prints etc).

2012-07-02 09My skirts are patterned (striped, floral, spotted) and I have plain coloured tops to wear with them.

2012-06-11 05But………..never the twain shall meet, so I am limited in the selection of mix and match outfits that I can create.

2012-07-02 03I can, and do wear a plain coloured top with plain shorts or trousers but there is no way I would ever mix 2 different patterns.  So I have come to the conclusion, that although at least some of the patterned tops will remain to be worn with the trousers or shorts, I will work towards having more plain coloured tops that can be used in a greater number of ways.

How have you identified ways to streamline the clothes in your wardrobe?

  1. You should try wearing your patterned separates together. Now before you freak out, I’m not talking about 2 florals together. What about that black and white stiped skirt with one of the above patterned tops? That stripe is so small and it monochrome that it is hardly a pattern at all and wouldn’t clash with the red and white top for example. It’s actually quite fashionable to mix ‘prints’ at the moment so not as much as a faux par as you might think 🙂
