Here’s How to Build a Minimalist Wardrobe from Everlane
Everlane is known for its approach to transparency and its commitment to sustainability, but we know it as our favorite place to shop for quality wardrobe basics. They make the pieces we reach for every single day, because they’re so damn easy to wear. Case in point: These 12 essential items that make up the Everlane minimalist wardrobe. We love that they effortlessly mix and match with not only each other but also everything else in our closet.
1. The Cotton Crew
Everyone needs a crisp white tee to wear on its own or under wool sweaters. At this price, we suggest buying multiples so you’re never without a clean one.
2. The Washable Silk Relaxed Shirt
Just as essential as a white tee, a silk button-down can be dressed up or down and will always make you look put together. Steam it in the morning and you’ll be practically wrinkle-free by 5 p.m.
3. The Japanese GoWeave Essential Jumpsuit
Meghan Markle wore this exact jumpsuit on the set of her Vogue cover shoot this July. And then she re-wore it last month on her first solo engagement in South Africa. We’ll be wearing it to all our holiday parties (with a turtleneck under or a sweater over).
4. The ’90s Cheeky Straight Jean
A vintage-inspired pair of jeans with a button fly will outlive all other denim trends.
5. The Cocoon Coat
Because tailored wool always looks chicer than a bulky puffer.
6. The Oversize Alpaca Crew
Super soft and oh so cozy—you’ll wear this ribbed knit over T-shirts and under coats all year long.
7. The Wide Leg Crop Pant
These wide-leg crops are just as flattering as jeans, but come with a business casual undertone.
8. The Modern Loafer
Trade ballet flats for a sturdier (read: more supportive) pair of loafers. They go with jeans or slacks and won’t give you blisters. What more could you want?
9. The Boss Boot
LBBs (that’s little black boots, for the uninitiated) are the new LBDs for obvious reasons: wearability and versatility.
11. The Oversize Blazer
This roomy blazer will serve as lightweight outerwear now and an additional layering piece come winter.
12. The Cotton Turtleneck Tee
Behold: The VIP of fall and winter. Wear it under a warm but scratchy sweater on the weekend or a polished blazer Monday through Friday. Plus the breathable cotton fabric ensures we don’t have to stash deodorant in every handbag.
