January is a great time to start fresh – and that includes your closet! But where to begin? We’ve got you covered with a capsule wardrobe of must-have styles that you can mix and match to create endless looks to love. Remove the guesswork with 10 essential pieces that make everyday dressing exciting and effortless.
What is a “capsule wardrobe”?
It’s the foundation for your daily style — basic tops, bottoms, outerwear and footwear that can be dressed up or down. Then, you can add in trending colors, patterns, and accessories to make each outfit your very own. Give it a try!
Top 10 pieces for endless looks to love
The Sweatshirt: A staple that’s up for anything. Layer a print under a solid for an extra pop or throw it on over a dress in case the temp drops.
The Legging: Your go-to for doing it all (or nothing at all). Dress them up with booties or go casual with comfy sneakers.
The Button-Down Shirt: Dress it up for work or down for the weekend. Like to play with patterns? Try pairing neutral stripes over a fun print.
The 24/7 Tee: Perfect for layering over or under your favorite pieces. Make a statement by wearing it over a button-down or hooded pullover!
The Dress: Explore the twirl-worthy possibilities. Wear it as a casual dress with bare legs or tights or as a tunic over leggings.
The Jacket: Top off a tee or dress. It’s a blazer by day and jacket by night and the drawstring waist accents your shape.
The Bootie: High, low or wedge, booties finish any outfit in style. From workdays to the weekend, they’re a comfortable classic.
The Sweater: Easy to dress up or down — just throw on and go! Long and lightweight, it’s perfect for layering.
The Jegging: Our most comfortable jeans do it all. Wear them with your favorite sweater, tee or even under a casual sweatshirt dress.
The Sneaker: Not just for jeans anymore! The new “flat,” sneakers pair perfectly with pants, skirts and even dresses.
