This collection of work-appropriate separates shows how easy and practical a carefully curated closet can be. Let’s take a look at what’s here: a pair or two of neutral pants, one neutral skirt, one patterned skirt , a solid-colored dress, three neutral tops, one patterned top, and a few pairs of shoes. With this combination almost any top can be worn with any bottom. Think of all the outfits you could make with only nine pieces of clothing! Throw in some accessories like scarves, belts, and statement jewelry and create even more! Use the Banana Republic Mix and Match Wardrobe as a guide to customize this concept for your own style and needs. Start with some coordinating neutral pieces, add a few patterned items in the same color palette, and don’t forget to consider your jewelry and shoes.
