Sometimes, you have no motivation for getting dressed. For me, on these days, when you’re running late, and you can’t find the sweater you wanted to wear or you spilled coffee on the first outfit you put on, I’ve created a formula. Go basic, then add some fun.

For example. Nothing more basic than black and white. With clean lines and classic shapes, you have your work outfit. But with a scarf…or a purse…or a belt…or a blazer.

That’s four different outfits, all with one new piece added to your basic ensemble. Easy, right? And for a more casual look, just add jeans, a-duh.
