If you work in a business professional or business casual environment, there are some basic pieces you need. With these you can add pops of color, pattern and texture with your completer pieces and accessories to build multiple outfits. It will also take the guess work out of "what to wear to work".  A white button up and some tan/khaki (neutral)  pants are two of those basics. A colored blazer  (or cardigan) and leopard belt are two examples of "pops".  Any black, navy, tan, or grey pants will suffice for a neutral. They don't have to be tan. I just happen to like how to red goes with these tan pants for something a little different than red and black.

When I get stumped for outfit ideas I turn to formulas like these. Two basics + two pops.  In this situation, my shoes are neutral but you could wear colored or patterned shoes as one of your pops.

Do you have a favorite formula or formulas for getting dressed?
