Do you ever over wear something?
I read somewhere; I think it was about shoes, you should never wear the same pair two days running. Apparently changing them and allowing a day’s grace improves the life expectancy. Cashmere sweaters are probably the same; I seem to have failed with this advice.
I wear the same piece over and over when I like it; day after day and back-to-back, especially in the winter.
After the balmy days in Antigua, where my only thought was a light dress and a pair of slides, the freezing days of London have caught me off guard. An oversized cashmere sweater has been my go to with a pair of black woollen pants or leather leggings. The balloon shape of an oversized sweater suits me well and as they sit just under the bottom a pair of narrow trousers are essential. If I was a skinny Minnie I would wear the wide legged style of pants and my sneakers with an oversized jumper; for now, I’m better to keep the excess in one place, not two. A big sweater can also work very well with a pencil skirt.
The beauty of these oversized sweaters is they are not only practical but also good looking.
Over-wearing tells me I’ve made a good fashion decision. I don’t mind repetition if it works well. Don’t you think?
I could easily over wear these over-sized beauties. xv
