The simple style that never lets me down.
As someone with a strangely long and straight torso, there are certain outfits that just do not work on me. However, after some time I figured out my fail safe formula – a just slightly cropped sweater/shirt with high waisted pants. For some reason these proportions just seem to pull me together and also create the illusion of some curves. It is my go to for feeling polished and confident with minimal effort. (Always my goal as I am a perpetual – leave it to the last possible 5 minutes to get dressed for the day). I think that is truly the best part of clothes and fashion in general – the transformative and powerful feeling that they can impart when you start to hone in on what suits you best. I love the concept of a uniform or capsule collection – a pared down arsenal of clothes/accessories that make you feel incredible every time you put them on.
The top that started it all for me was this black cropped cashmere version from Everlane, which annoyingly seems to be constantly out of stock. (I would want duplicates in every color otherwise!) Nevertheless, I have linked below a bunch of similar options as well as some perfect bottoms to pair with.
Do you have a transformative outfit formula that always makes you feel 100%??
