Elevated Wardrobe Basics, Down-to-Earth Prices
One of the things I think we all struggle with is finding quality clothing at an affordable price. I don’t disagree that the overall quality of most fabrics and construction has taken a noticeable downturn in the past couple of decades. Even high-end brands have issues with less-than-stellar quality. I’m still committed to a wardrobe of “fewer but better” pieces, but I’m trying to be mindful of price as well.
I’ve had my ups and downs with Everlane over the years, but lately they’ve been hitting some home runs for me. The ballet neck cashmere sweater above, sells for $100, and is soft, lightweight and has an easy-to-wear silhouette. (Not too short, not too long, not too snug, not too boxy.) It has a luxe look and feel for less than many mass market cashmere sweaters. This is the kind of “elevated basic” that I rely on for my wardrobe foundation. I was recently gifted a pair of stretch denim jeans which you’ll be seeing in an outfit post next week. I was really impressed with the quality and fit, which is comparable to some of my premium denim!
I’m still on the hunt for an ivory v-neck sweater that isn’t too long, and am hopeful this one might do the trick. I’ve ordered and will report back. And I still think their Modern Loafer is one of the best shoes for the money anywhere.
Where do you find good value for your money?
