A few weeks ago I had an idea that I would create a wardrobe for myself using certain basic pieces mixed and matched in various ways. This idea is not new, but it’s not something I have tried before. I made a few lists and thought I would use approximately 7–8 pieces each of bottoms, short sleeved tops, and long sleeved tops. As of now, I don’t have all of the pieces that I wanted to incorporate, but I was able to put together a bunch of different outfits from what I have! This doesn’t include shoes or accessories and it’s very simple, but here is what I have come up with so far.
These are the pieces I’m starting with. As you can see, I have white jeans, denim jeans, denim shorts, a turquoise skirt, a black and white striped shirt, a black tank dress, a turquoise and white striped shirt, a yellow lacy tank, a purple and white tank, a red shirt, a turquoise shirt, a white tank, grey and black cardigans, a lightweight white long sleeved shirt, and a blue cardigan.
Here are the combinations I put together!
Obviously, once you start mixing and matching the cardigans, there are lots more combinations! I still think I need a few more bottoms, plus I really wanted to add in a long sleeved chambray shirt. At this rate, I could wear a different outfit every day all summer! Just shown above are 22 outfit combinations. And in case you were wondering, these are not the only t-shirts and tanks I have!
I’m not thinking of becoming a fashion blogger, but maybe I’ll start sharing a few “what I wore” posts. What do you think?
