Neutrals (N) form the foundation of your wardrobe because they go with everything. Choose your most flattering Neutral or Basic color for your coat, suit, jacket/blazer and basic dress – the clothes worn closest to your face. Any of your Neutrals may be used for skirts and pants, shoes and bags. Basic Colors (B) are the ones that are versatile and go with many others and can sometimes be used in the place of a Neutral.
