I promised to show you what was in the shopping bag. Sometimes the difference between “meh” and “wow” is in the details. Take this Nanette Lepore sweater for example: it could easily be just another grey cardigan, but the lace insets add visual oomph, and the seaming in front gives it a nice tailored shape. The zippered closure is an upgrade from the usual buttons.
This sweater works with jeans and a tank for a casual look, but also with slacks and a long-sleeved tee for the office. And yes, it’s absolutely going to Paris with me next year!
The boots from Donald J. Pliner are also simple in design, but the metallic finish is a detail that takes them a step up from ordinary.
More lace inset sweaters here. (All price ranges.)
Are there favorite details that make your simple pieces special?
