One criteria that I have when I am contemplating a purchase is whether or not I can style it at least three different ways using my current wardrobe. It is also important to me to determine the item’s cost per wear before purchasing it. For example, if a piece is more expensive but it is so versatile that I would wear it very often, then using the cost per wear model the item becomes a really great value. Take this amazing sweater by Belstaff. First off being a neutral automatically means that it will fit in flawlessly with my current wardrobe, which implies that I can style it with a countless number of my pieces. What sold me on this sweater is the unique moto details throughout and the v- back. When I purchased it online I had a hunch that the overisized silhouette would lend itself to being styled in various ways. Although the photos online show the model wearing the V on the back I found it is just as comfortable to wear it as a v- neck! The modern, slouchy shape also lends itself flawlessly to an off the shoulder style for a casual cool look. Just right there I can wear one sweater three different ways and taking into account the fabric and style it can be dressed up or down easily. I’ve already worn it several times since receiving it and I can tell already that this flattering sweater is going to lend itself perfectly to cool summer nights and right into fall/winter.
When I am looking to invest in designer pieces my first stop is always Nordstrom. Their selection is amazing and are constantly adding new up and coming designers. Plus their customer service is seriously awesome, which is so important when buying those pricier pieces.
Thanks Nordstrom for partnering on this post.
