Here is a article talking about what I mean.http://www.sew-whats-new.com/culshaw/wardrobe.shtml
The idea is you plan your wardrobe around a few prints and solids and Sew with that in mind. You start with these 11 garments.
2 pairs of pants
2 skirts, one in a solid colour, one in a print or check
2 simple tops, one solid, one in the above print
4 tops, in colours which coordinate with the solids
1 simple cardigan jacket in a solid colour
Anybody up for it.
