Back to Basics

Maybe LA is finally starting to rub off on me, or maybe it is the fact that sportswear is having such a big fashion moment, but lately, I find myself reaching for comfortable, easy-to-wear basics in lieu of my usual tailored tops, structured bottoms and high heeled combos.

Latest find and current favorite is this cropped sweatshirt from Rodarte I picked up from Forward the other week. Love it because it is truly one of those pieces that tends to work with most bottom options ( from high waisted jeans, to leather mini skirts and tailored slacks ) but also because as you well know, I have a bit of a weak spot for details and this one has those in abundance. First, there is the cropped length which yields versatility, and the slightly slouchy fit, and the white embroidery which makes for a stark contrast against the black fabric. Basically, win win on every level and definitely one of those wear-with-anything and anywhere pieces! Of course you know just how much I love those!
