Your inbox, with its folders and tabs and tags, is a work of art. Your workout routine is fine tuned for maximum sweating. And don't even get started with your online dating game — you've perfected a system for separating the dates from the duds in two texts, flat. So, why then, is your closet not a shrine to efficiency, too?
The secret to having a closet that inspires you doesn't necessarily have to lie in owning more clothes. It's about filling it with fewer pieces that go with more things, and can be worn more often — but don't think that you've got to stick with a stable of boring, "classic" pieces in shades of gray. No, some of the most touted pieces this season are also the most versatile. And when you start thinking out of the box, you'll find that there's a near-infinite number of outfits you can make. Dress, meet pants. Top, meet other top. You, meet 14 head-to-toe outfits created with just 10 items.
