An integral part of personal idiom is what you consider a basic. Those tee shirts, camis, cardis, or leggings that don’t really constitute a fashion item, but without which you can’t get dressed? Those may need to be replaced annually, and in duplicates. White and black are especially vulnerable to losing the freshness of their color.
I’ve been thinking for some time about suggesting a basic accent color based on personality. In addition to one’s eye color, these are my top personality-based color recommendations for those pieces that tie the rest of the wardrobe together:
- expressive: white
- gentle: gray
- dynamic: red
- reflective: black
Because I wear jeans alot, buying some of these kinds of pieces to blend with jeans makes sense too.
