Have you ever found yourself without the necessary element to put together a proper outfit due to circumstances such as having everything at the cleaners, in the wash, etc.?

Several months ago all of my primary gear was still damp or dirty (not dirty, really, but unwashed) and the only thing that I had that I could wear to work was a pair of tan linen pants, a pastel purple shirt and a blue-gray cotton skinny tie. It was embarrassing. Halfway through the day I finally took off the tie, but it didn't help much because the shirt's buttons were a dark grey. Didn't look good. At all. I actually did receive a compliment from one of my coworkers. I fear he was being genuine, too.

This happened to me several times in the far past, but I am fortunate enough now to have a wide enough selection that it hasn't occurred in years.

This is why it's nice to have multiple versions of staple items. I have three ecru OCBD, for example, so I'm almost always guaranteed to have one ready to go at a moment's notice.
