Apparently Michael Kors has said that every woman should own 70% basics and 30% “icing and fluff” (trendy/unusual/jazzy) in her wardrobe. I quite agree with this. One can’t possibly put an outfit together having different proportions of the afore-mentioned.
I would also add to it though. A woman must also decide her style and her colours. It is necessary in order to be able to wear ones clothes with more than one or two other pieces. See, if one decided on a palette, one would than find most things would fit in together. Of course there are shapes and lengths to consider as well, but that’s another story.
And do not forget to always invest in accessories and shoes/bags. That’s a 100% perhaps even 120% on top!
