How to: Build Around A Basic


I'm trying a new site feature, the "How To" section.  I last tried this out with mint green pants, in this post, which turned out to be really popular :)  My hope is that seeing an outfit laid out like this will make it easier for your to go to your closet and make a cute outfit with pieces you already own.

How To:

  • The Basic: I chose a Gap dress.  There is a similar dress here, with all sizes available. Because the basic that I chose is striped, anything else that is going to be layered over it is going to be a solid color.  There's a definite art to mixing patterns - like mixing stripes and polka dots, etc., but for now, we'll keep it simple.



The Accessories:
