No, it is not a new card game. 21 is the number of black items that I have in my wardrobe. They are not patterned or black with the addition of other colours. Those are extra and yet to be counted.
21 seems like a lot of things in just one colour for what is a fairly small wardrobe. These are my staples which means that I can mix and match with everything else. Take a look and see what you think.
One pair of trousers, one ¾ pants and one pair of shorts.
The other thing to note is that several of these items are the only one that I own. The trousers, wool sweater, all of the shoes, handbag, evening bag, wallet, hat and belt are not duplicated in any other colour. Although I do own other dresses and skirts, the black ones shown here are the only plain-coloured ones in my wardrobe.
Black is undoubtedly the base colour in my wardrobe. The secondary colours are red and white and I will look at these another day.
Do you have one base colour or several upon which to base your wardrobe?
