Memo 257: The Bare Necessities



It’s no secret that this trench cape from H&M is one of my favorite pieces of outerwear. It can be said that she who findeth good basic fashion necessities, findeth a good thing! I think that verse can be found in the Queen Jessica version of Pret-A-Porter 18:22 from the 36th edition of the International Fashion Bible.
Great basic pieces can become an integral part of your fashion arsenal. It’s worth the time and energy to find items that speak to your spirit and are eligible to be worn to death. I don’t know about you but I buy my clothes to actually wear them and wear them out.
Look for pieces that can transition throughout the seasons. This cape can be worn in the Spring, Fall and a small part of the Winter with the right amount of layers and weather appropriate accessories.
We’re approaching sale season. Get in formation.
