I'm starting the 5 piece wardrobe after NAS. I'm having a little trouble with the question of what is a basic (or essential). I patiently waited for the Villous hoody to come in the next size up, and it came yesterday. It fits the way I want it to. It is my regular size in HL. So much for trufit.

I also purchased this EF tee and sweater. Would you call these essentials or statements? The tee is a keeper, but I had to have them send a sized down sweater to my house so I'll see if I like the fit.
