As we’ve discussed a little, I think it’s hard to tell when you first add something to your wardrobe what you will truly love and live in; it may take a few months or even years to realize how essential a certain item is in your wardrobe. If only there was a formula…There is, sort of, if you know well enough what lengths, shapes, and styles work on you, and which to avoid. And then, you must find the item that meets all of those requirements. A daunting task.
I had a hunch, but wasn’t certain that this “sweatshirt” would be as good as it is (it IS James Perse after all…). I’ve already worn it more than a handful of times, and it’s one of my favorite pieces to reach for, not least because I think it’s the optimal length on me: not too long, not too short. And it fits well otherwise. I wish it was a bit more user-friendly and lighter-weight, so I could wear it even more, but as it is, I still wear it, even in mid-sixty degree weather, without getting too hot.
Did anyone order this top during the James Perse sale? What did you think?
What item in your wardrobe do you reach for over and over again that you weren’t sure you would in the beginning? Or are you pretty sure when you buy something that you’ll love it?
