I love Zoe Saldana's wool coat and matching booties. Her ensemble looks great, and made me realize I have a wool jacket and booties that go well together, too. I kept the theme of her outfit and added cobalt jeans and an oatmeal sweater in today's look, but my jacket + bootie combo could be used over and over again with different jeans and tops in colors such as oxblood, gray, navy, mustard, ivory, black or olive. I call these "outfit shortcuts" and can be virtually anything in your closet - bottoms and shoes that go well together, a cardigan and necklace, etc. What are some outfit shortcuts in your closet?
