Allow me to let you in on a little industry secret: most (though not all) editors plan out their ensembles in advance, particularly during busy work periods (ahem, fashion week). Personally, I like to keep a running list of outfit ideas in the Notes section of my phone, but a tiny notebook (oh man
, do we love tiny notebooks
!) works just as well. Most often, these possible clothing combos will strike when you're (of course) not in the midst of actually getting dressed—they more often pop up when you're showering, subway-ing or browsing fashion blogs—so it helps to have a little journal of looks ready to go for those mornings when you can't be bothered to match skirts, tops and shoes.
