Underutilized Wardrobe Items: Keep ’em Visible

keep clothes where you can see them

We all play favorites. We reach for the same skirt, the same jeans, the same flats again and again. And in order to make that reach less time-consuming, we move those favorites to the front of the closet, the nearest shelf, the top of the drawer.

So here are the last of the truly autumnal outfits. This one both leaf-heavy and comprised of fall-colored clothes and accessories.
