This season I have this instinctual draw to go back to the basics... If you follow runway trends at all, you will know that a lot of designers went this route as well. Albeit in a very "designerly" way. But I think there is something to be said for pulling out the basics and making them new again. This season I crave simple. Simple but still chic.
When I saw this hoodie on sale at Gap this weekend I knew I had to have one. (Well, I could've taken more than one to be honest!) It's the perfect intermediary to a jacket on a chilly spring day and a perfect warm-up on a cozy Sunday afternoon. I haven't bought or worn a "hoodie" since about 1999. Except maybe on one random camping trip or something. What I love most about this sweatshirt (I can't believe I am swooning about a sweatshirt!) is it's slim fit and straight lines. No puckering at the sleeves or the waist line make it about as plain and simple as it can get.
I knew my goal was to "dress it up" a bit... no slouch-wear around here! So for me, pairing it with a blazer, sequined sandals and a funky necklace was the perfect balance.
How do you feel about dressing up the basics this season? Does it sound boring or like comfort-food for you wardrobe?
