Why You Should Invest In Solid Colors

Fall Colors Tanvii.com 7

Over the years, in my quest to create a functional and minimalist wardrobe, I have realized the importance of solids in my closet. If you browse through my outfit posts here you will notice the abundance of solid colors for all occasions. Don't get my wrong, I love prints and patterns as much as the next person, but they are not conducive to bringing most bang for your buck. They are bright and attract attention which means you cannot wear them frequently among the same social circles. They are often tricky to mix and match with other prints/patterns in your closet. 

Solids on the other hand, are: 
  1. Ideal basic layer
  2. Versatile to wear 
  3. Give you more bang for your buck
  4. Not as eye catching (hence, versatile!) as prints
  5. Easy to style and mix and match
Below are some of my looks from all seasons where I have styled solids sometimes as a layer and other times as a mix-match element to my look.

I have come to realize the value of investing in good quality of solids, as they have turned out of my the most worn pieces in my closet. As you can see you can style them all year round.
