Equivalents

Transitional seasons prove the advantage in having warm/dry and chilly/rainy versions of basic wardrobe elements. It's trivial to swap out a crushable polyester straw hat for a boonie model from the Great Big Hiking Co-op if they're both the same color. The same holds true for a coat or trousers.

Once I identified my working core of classic clothing designs, nearly identical sets of black and beige elements in the four-season fabrics that work for layering in Seattle's year-round infinite weather variables allow me to cover my back with the contents of a traditional blanket chest. That's all the storage I need.

This approach won't work for everyone, but it works for me. I fool around with scarves, preferring them to jewelry, and with flimsy shopping totes. The contents of my town wardrobe are no different from the contents of my emergency evacuation kit.  -30-
