Replacing the security blanket with the next best thing.
Something I’ve recently started to do is become more invested with my clothing. The knit sweater has become a staple in my closet for years on end, and last year I bought one from Express’s Capsule Collection that has been featured in many outfits for the past year. I put it away when summer time rolled around, but after shifting my seasonal clothes back to fall/winter, it’s made its way as one of my key pieces yet again.
Knit sweaters are as easy to come by as “denim” in many fast-fashion retail stores, but is it really worth the investment? After a couple of washes, you’ll notice that the item shrinks tremendously and the material starts pilling early. A quality sweater is tightly knit, made of material that will actually keep you warm while insulating heat (cashmere, wool, alpaca, etc.), and keeps its form throughout time. Investing in one from a quality brand will pay off for years to come.
*Hover over for brand+price.
