I’m always on the lookout for simple, lightweight knit pieces that will layer well. They’re the basis of my travel wardrobes, and of my at-home wardrobe as well (especially this time of year, when temperatures can fluctuate so much.)
Sure, it’s easy enough to find these kinds of pieces in black or white, but in other neutrals or colors, not so much. I’d been eyeing these Belford cotton sweaters at Halsbrook, so when they offered me something from their Spring collection to style, I chose this one in Lilac.
This v-neck sweater is a fine gauge knit and has a slim fit. I’m wearing the size Small. If you like a looser fit, I’d recommend going up one size from your usual.
They also gifted me this gorgeous floral scarf, which is from the Fall collection. It’s quite lightweight and pairs beautifully with the sweater. I think it really makes the outfit!
This is the Eileen Fisher cardigan I mentioned in an earlier post. It’s organic cotton and silk, and has a fun texture and lovely drape. I’d call this an “elevated basic.” It’s simple enough to be classic and versatile, but it’s not generic. (It seems to be marked down at the moment.)
Some of my favorite slide sandals from prior seasons have heels that are now too high for me to wear comfortably, so I’m beginning to replace them. These are a purplish-brown, which can skew either as a neutral or color, depending on the rest of the outfit. They’re comfortable and easy to walk in, too.
What “elevated basics” are on your wish list this season?
