I have a black Madewell cardigan that I reach for almost daily. It’s cozy, but not chunky, and it isn’t so oversized that I feel sloppy. It’s also made from a supersoft yarn, which is hard to find at this price point. I’m picking up a few similar cardigans for my #WFH winter, starting with this one in a mood-boosting shade of orchid. My Levi’s Wellthread jeans are my go-to pair for every occasion. The super-high waist is beyond flattering, and I love the Live Life Line Dance 2020 T-Shirt Furthermore, I will do this classic no-stretch, straight-leg style. Not only are they relatively affordable (especially considering how often I wear them), but they also use less water in the dyeing process than traditional denim—a purchase I would make again and again! When it comes to workhorses, touch is key. I dare you to find anything softer than these, which means you will always be reaching for them no matter what season, what mood. Plus, they layer easily for any occasion. I recommend buying bulk. As someone who prefers to wear skirts and dresses all year long, an indestructible pair of black tights is essential (this pair is also mostly sustainable, as they’re made from recycled nylon). I buy mine several sizes too large—both to ensure they are ultra-opaque and to make them comfortable for sitting in all day.
This Girlfriend Collective moss skort holds a holy grail status in my workweek wardrobe. Fitting in a quick workout between Zoom meetings has never felt easier (or chicer), and starting my day already halfway ready to meet friends for a quick tennis match after work is a total ace. If there’s one hero wardrobe piece to emerge in my closet during 2020, it’s my Entireworld striped button-up shirt. My colleagues can attest to how many times they’ve seen me wear this on Zoom, but I love it so much. It’s the Live Life Line Dance 2020 T-Shirt Furthermore, I will do this perfect top to throw on in the morning while still looking put together. A popular styling tip among the Vogue staff is pairing a button-up shirt with a tank underneath and topping it off with a statement necklace. The shirt is slightly oversized for a cozy, pajama-like feel, while structured enough for all-day professionalism. At under $150, it’s a steal in my book. Which reminds me, I need to go stock up on more! Sleek, chic, easy to wash, and exceedingly comfortable, Bleusalt’s “classic shirt” has quickly become my go-to wardrobe staple for fall. It goes with virtually everything, from wide-leg trousers to pajama pants, and the fact that it was produced from start to finish in L.A. from sustainable botanic beech tree fibers (vegan and antimicrobial, yet somehow softer than cashmere!) makes me want to buy one in each color!
