Play to your strength. That seems obvious, of course. But I hear a lot of gals say things like "oh, I love it, but it's navy. I have SO much navy. So much more than anything else. I should branch out." Well, yes, you should, but that doesn't mean to leave that item that you love behind. When you're fond of a color or style, you'll tend to accumulate more of that, and that means that while you might not have a lot of pieces in your wardrobe overall, what you do have ... will match.

Rolling over the clothing item again - Day 42 uses the same skirt from Day 41, but while the palettes are similar, the outfits are disparate. Of course, this project about wardrobe isn't really done in the way that you or I would normally - the day to day "rollover" is for the point of illustration. I find that I have "groups" of items that I tend to mix like this with, so too-similar colors don't get worn back to back. I have the black, red, and tan group. The navy, pink and white group. The brown and chartreuse group. And of course, there's cross over between those groups, too. Navy and Red. Brown and pink. Black and chartreuse. Etc. I feel like I should draw a real-life clothes mixing chart, but I feel like it would look as confusing as Lil' Abner's family tree.
So, what are YOUR strengths? What do you find you tend to lean toward in collection. Is there anything you have a hard time pairing up with the rest of your wardrobe?
