Remember back in 2011-2013 when Chevron print was REALLY in style? Well, during that time, I bought this super cute pink, orchid purple, red, and white chevron print infinity scarf, and only wore it about one or two times. And over the last few months as I’ve taken on this personal fashion challenge of trying to create at least 260 outfits by utilizing articles of clothing that I already had in my wardrobe, I thought this scarf would be really challenging to incorporate into an outfit because I wasn’t sure if it was too “6 seasons ago”. But this morning, I decided to take the risk of making a possible fashion faux paux by pairing this potentially outdated scarf with a light pink ribbed pencil skirt, a sheer red sleeveless blouse, a pair of white strappy wedges, and an orchid purple statement necklace. And to my surprise, I ended up creating a vibrant, color-blocked look that I absolutely loved, and came to realize that a “stylish” outfit isn’t dependent upon whether or not your clothing is “so this season” or has a designer label on it – but instead, is dependent upon your ability to: (1) style and work with what you’ve already got in your closet, and (2) to wear it with total confidence, which unlike an in-season pair of designer thigh high boots, is something that you can’t buy.

How To Have a Minimalistic Wardrobe and Still Create Colorful Outfits!

I love and hate the idea of capsule wardrobes: I love it because it’s all about making the most out of the clothes that you already have, but as someone who loves color, I also hate the notion that capsule wardrobes should be comprised of only “statement pieces” (i.e., neutral colored clothing). Today, I wanted to give an example of how – through color-blocking, you can still have a minimalist wardrobe, without having to just wear all black and white. So, on Fridays, I usually go back home to NH after work for the weekend, and then drive back to Boston for work on Monday morning. This weekend, I wanted to pack light, so instead of packing a whole new outfit to wear for work on Monday, I just packed this neon pink paisley maxi-skirt, and paired it with the royal blue blouse, beaded green statement necklace, and royal blue wedge heels that I wore with a black and gold pattern skirt on Friday – and “Voila”, I just created a whole new look with just one skirt!
