I have to admit that there’s still one topic that I don’t often talk about… Essentials pieces. And I’m still wondering why, because I truly think that people largely underestimate the power of those basic but indispensable items. I mean, it’s just an amazing feeling to wear a great basic and to be satisfied with it over months and years, don’t you think?
Yesterday I wrote for the first time an (non exhaustive) list of everything that I would NEED this season: a wool cardigan in grey or black, a poplin white shirt, a long sleeves t-shirt, a mid-long black jacket, a knit jumper and a coat in a versatile way -will develop this notion later!
Qualitative, timeless colored items that I could easily match with some highlights of my closet. Although the fact that I do really love color and details, I swear not to buy anything else but this list. I have to be strong.
Of course everyone should be able to set up a price limit to these purchases, for my part I first decided to ban materials like ‘elastan’ or ‘polyester’ tee-shirts and ‘acrylic’ knits. I personally would never spend 200 € for a single tee, where price does not mean necessary quality, that’s why I love brands like Stefanel and COS for tee-shirts. Here are 2 great mid-seasonal pieces that I own.
So I’m still looking for the mid-long jacket, knit jumper and ‘versatile’ coat, but I might have found the 2 first items:
What about you, did you already made a needlist -or a wishlist- of things you absolutely want this season?
