Maya Blue Argyle Sweater

First and foremost, not only is this sweater adorable and on-point on trends, it actually has really great quality.

The fabric is very thick, and the inner has also been knitted out so there won't be any scratchiness. It feels soft and feels very comfortable!

As seen in the image, the sweater has an argyle design that comes in the colors navy, light blue, and white. The coloration is on-point without any variation and the pattern is also exactly the same.

There are no crops on this sweater, although it's not too long nor too short- the perfect length of coverage.

Fave Points

Thick Fabric- feels very cozy and perfect for colder days.

Inside Knit- not only is the outer side good quality, so is the inside!

Long Sleeve- thick navy sleeves.

Essential for Colder Season

This sweater is the perfect must-have this upcoming weather, with a cute look and quality that will exceed your expectations.

It comes as a one size, but it should be a size that caters to both smaller and larger sizes.

To shop the Maya Blue Argyle sweater, get it here for $26 USD.

Fuzzy Checkered Pastel Cardigan

This cropped cardigan comes in three different color options: blue, pink, and purple all in pastel shades. The light blue is exactly as it looks in the photo below- in fact, the cardigan is 100% the same as the image.

While the crop may be a bit more higher up than expected, the rest are completely the same. (The crop comes around 3/5 coverage of the torso.)

The texture of the fabric is light and super soft fuzzy feather-like feel. However, the fuzz will not fall out, so that shouldn't be a concern.

The buttons are very easy to slide in and out, and are well-sized for closure. The quality of the cardigan overall is wonderful!

Fave Points

Fuzzy Feel: the softest cardigan you'll ever feel.

Crop Top: perfect for pairing with a high-waisted denim (coming below...)

No-Loose Sleeves: the sleeves are not loose and will fit perfectly around your arms.

The Cutest Top For a Look

I would recommend going up a size if you are debating the fitting. Additionally, as it is a crop, sizing up would allow more coverage.

Get the Fuzzy Checkered Pastel Cardigan for $28 USD here.

High-Rise Cargo Jeans

These jeans are so comfortable and lightweight. Plus, they have a bunch of pockets that are real!

The High-Rise Cargo Jeans are perfectly loose-fitting without being too baggy. The color is a light blue that isn't too light, and it overall looks exactly like the image in the bottom.

Like its namesake, it's pretty high-waisted, although it may come up a bit higher than the image below.

These jeans are perfect for pairing with any outfit- and is the go-to for anytime and anywhere!

Fave Points

Loose Fit: does not cling to you!

Pockets: the ones on the sides of the legs are very much real, and the hip and back pockets are as well.

Not Heavy: these jeans are pretty light and not quite thick, although fit for the upcoming colder days!

Essential Jeans for Anywhere

As for sizing, if you are:

2~4 in US sizing, go for a small.

4~6 in US sizing, go for a medium.

Anything above, go for the large!

Get yours here for $36 USD.

Blue Denim Patchwork Jeans

Patchwork jeans are the rave these days, and being the trend-caterer, Dainty Basics is here to offer it to you for a more affordable cost.

The patches of the jeans are well put together, so you won't have to worry about any frays. The color contrast is stronger, like the image below, but it doesn't detract from the style!

It feels lightweight, but not as much as the High-Rise Cargo Jeans. It's thick enough for the colder season, and the material is pretty sturdy.

The Blue Denim Patchwork Jeans looks most like the image below:

Fave Points

Fit Style: it tends to be tighter and the upper part of the jeans, then goes out straight at the bottom.

Solid Back, Patch Front: while the front has the patchwork design, the back is a solid darker blue color.

Light Back Pockets: the two back pockets are in a lighter shade.

Essential Jeans for Anywhere

As for sizing, go up! You could consider even sizing up by two.

Especially if you're going for a less constricting fit, sizing up would be helpful.
