Basic; only interested in things mainstream, popular, and trending, as defined by the ever so clever “Urban Dictionary”. But let’s for the sake of this post use the definition from a more, oh I don’t know refined source like the Merriam-Webster dictionary: Ba·sic /‘bāsik/ adjective: forming an essential foundation or starting point; fundamental. By that definition I don’t see anything wrong with something being basic! A basic sweater – we all have one. Whether we reach for it when we’re running out the door or living in it when the first leaf turns and the cold front comes, it fills our hearts (and bodies) with nothing but that cozy feeling. With a busy schedule and a length of a to-do list that proves it, your go-to sweater is an easy option that you know will never disappoint you.
Boy did I find mine! I went into H&M at the beginning of the season, let’s say around September and left with the most flawless orange sweater. It was the perfect length, fit, color, material and not to mention $25!! I love H&M not only because there inventory is always changing but they also do such a great job with making everything affordable. I went back in a week later “just to look” (we all know how that goes) and left with the same sweater in 4 different colors (orange, camel, lavender, butter yellow, hunter green and emerald green). I couldn’t help myself! Yes, the sweater is probably as “basic” as it gets but with an amazing foundation for an outfit it was probably one of my smarter purchases. A sweater such as this one is great because you can wear it as a stand-alone to do just the job it is supposed to or you can use it as a layer to build out a more “stylized” look.
I kept mine pretty simple by paring it with a great black skinny jean, patent leather combat boots, Mango cross body, and these amazing earring from a local boutique! I’m super obsessed with anything camel colored these days.
Lots of love, Lindsey
