Even though I have quite a few sweaters of my own I’m forever coveting Dan’s. There’s something so wonderful about the feel of an oversized sweater, especially when it’s not yours. However, it’s rare that I curl up in one of his as his collection is somewhat smaller than mine and I feel pretty bad for taking them away from him. I spotted this charcoal grey sweater in the men’s section of COS a few weeks ago and have been living in it since. It’s super soft (a mix of wool and yak), so comfortable and just the right level of oversize to not swamp me. I seem to be able to wear it with everything.
This year I’m going to be focused on curating my perfect wardrobe. There’s so much I need to get rid of, pieces that don’t bring me joy (you can thank Marie Kondo for getting me into this frame of mind) and that linger too long in my wardrobe for another day. I want to be able to open my wardrobe and have the problem of not knowing what to wear because I want to wear it all. This last year I’ve spent a lot of my money on items I want to wear until the day they fall apart, like this Comme des Garçons PLAY t-shirt (just seen) and perfect white leather trainers by Common Projects. (If you’re planning to buy either, go up a size in the t-shirt and down at least one size in the trainers.)
If you’re looking for a great pair of tights I cannot recommend Heist enough. Not only do they have the coolest branding and packaging for a tights brand but they are also make the most comfortable tights I’ve ever tried. This is due to their unique seemless 3D knitted design and a waistband made using a luxury sportswear technique that means it doesn’t dig in or roll-up. Qudos to Heist, they really have nailed it.
