When I decided to write this post, I really started thinking about the closet. Today our closets can be whole rooms. As a matter of history, Closets were not originally invented for clothing. Since people did not even have bedrooms in some cases, the Closet was a room where people went to be alone and have their most precious possessions.
In Europe as houses grew bigger and there were bedrooms for everyone, closets disappeared as a place for privacy. Most people did not have many pieces of clothing so many bedrooms did not have a closet. If they did they were quite small. I live in a house that was built in the 1800's and the closets that were in the house were so shallow we just added shelving instead of trying to use it as a closet.
So, I thought it would be a good place to start to think about what if you only had that narrow closet. What pieces would I choose. That is why I had originally created SP Essentials. Even though the essentials have grown over the years, what 5 pieces would give me the most out of my wardrobe.
The Jet can be worn as a skirt or a dress, the jacket as a Jacket or a wrap top. The Lea Tube is also an essential part of your basics and since it takes up no room in your closet we will not count that in the 5 but just think of all the options. It is a belt, It is a top, It is a neck scarf.
The Catherine Dress is a good foundation piece in your wardrobe. Mixing it with the Roxie Jacket for Office to Dinner or over the Jet Skirt for a longer look are just a few ways you can style it.
With these few items there are at least 14 days of outfits. You will look put together and timeless. Who needs a big closet!
