While we are sitting at the edge of our seats waiting for election results, I thought I would send this short distraction, about how versatile a sweater can be. I have my eye on the Nili Lotan camel sweater at bottom. I don’t need it, but I do think I would wear it again and again. When I spend a good amount of money on a sweater, I want it to play an essential role in my wardrobe. Each of the sweaters shown here work with jeans for weekend or weekday, dressed up a bit with pants and boots and then with slip skirt, tank and little heels you’re ready for a night out (or more like a night in these days). In fact, if you choose one of these sweaters and added the rest of the extras–you’d have a strong, edited wardrobe. By now we have gotten a good sense of which clothes in our closet we reach for regularly and which pieces hardly ever see the light of day. Concentrating on a core essential wardrobe that consists of buy better, buy less pieces will feel relevant for months (and I hope years) to come.
