When it comes to your wardrobe, you probably want to get the most out of the clothing items you have. Sometimes it can be difficult to fully utilize your clothing collection, and you might not be sure how to wear certain pieces of clothing. In fact, you may even have clothes that you rarely or never wear because you just aren't sure what would look good with them.

There are a few ways that you can make your clothing go a long way. There are simple clothing pieces that you can buy that will help expand your wardrobe and give you more ways to wear what you already own. It can be very helpful to own certain fashion staples that can allow you to open up more possibilities for your outfits.

It is important to remember fashion neutrals when considering your wardrobe and how to improve it. Fashion neutrals are clothing pieces that come in neutral colors including brown, black, tan, white, navy, and gray. The great thing about these colors is that they go with just about anything you might own. For example, if you buy a new shirt with an interesting pattern, you might not be sure just what you can wear it with and still have it look good. To solve this problem, you would probably want to pick a pair of pants that come in a neutral color. This brings more attention to the shirt, since the neutral color of the pants won't take away from it, and you won't have to worry about clashing colors.

Some good pieces to own in neutral colors include tank tops, camisoles, shoes, pants, sweaters, and belts. It is easy to start with these items of clothing and build on them with color to create the perfect outfit. By adding neutrals to your wardrobe, you will find that there are many new clothing combinations that you can try, therefore opening up your possibilities for what to wear. You can wear a floral green shirt with a tan sweater, or go for a different look and team the same shirt with a navy sweater instead. By doing this, you are able to wear your green shirt in more ways than one.

Be sure to keep several neutral-colored options in your closet, and you will suddenly have more options for what to wear than ever. Having these clothing pieces to work with will make putting an outfit together effortless and worry-free.
