Blouses and Tops
Best Satin Blouse
Trust us when we say this luxurious satin blouse will stand by your side for years (and trend cycles) to come. The intricate twist detail in the front of this elevated basic blouse flatters the waist by accentuating your natural curves. And the concealed hook fastening at the bust provides an option of extra cleavage coverage for a lunch with the mother-in-law or meeting with your manager.
Size range: US 00 to 10
Best Button-Down Shirt
From Pantone deeming caramel café an “it” color for fall to celebrity manicurists predicting chocolate brown hues will be on the nails of the most stylish people you know, rich browns are poised to be everywhere. This stunning chocolate blouse, made from 100 percent organic silk (a sustainable alternative to traditional silk), is the button-down your closet needs to take you from winter to spring in one sophisticated swoop. We adore the V-neckline that’ll show off our favorite necklaces, the tailored collar for extra polish and the button cuffs along the outer wrist that you can wear fastened or undone.
Size range: 0 to 10
Staple Jeans and Pants
Best Black Jeans
The hunt to find the perfect pair of black jeans is over. Slim-fitting and flattering, these FRAME bootcut jeans sit comfortably around the waist, hug the hips and fall around the leg with enough room to wear over your favorite boots a la Kate Middleton style. These are made to fit slightly stretchy, with two-percent elastane, so you can stick to your usual sizing and forgo the need to unbutton and unzip after that plate of pasta.
Size range: 23 to 32
Spruce up your plain trousers and keep your legs toasty this winter with this chic Theory pair made with a wool blend. The wide-leg bottoms pair well with pointy-toe pumps or chunky loafers. We also love that this pair has an elasticated waistband and two front pockets to give us ample breathing room and warm refuge for our hands.
Size range: S to L
Swoon Worthy Skirts
Best Mini Skirt
In the mood for something daring for date night? Then this fluted mini skirt is just what you need for a sexy and sophisticated ensemble. Dion Lee’s acclaimed architectural eye produces some of the most stunning pieces that’ll turn heads, and this mini skirt is no exception. Its ribbed knit detailing keeps your waist snug and creates a striking contrast against the frilly hemline full of movement. It’s available in two colors—tan and army green—and, according to The Outnet, it fits true to size, so you can rest assured that your usual pick will suit your body nicely.
Size range: XS to L
Best Midi Skirt
There’s a way to master clashing prints, and Parisian-inspired BA&SH figured it out. With a mixed crimson floral and leaflike print that tiers into an asymmetrical hem, this unique skirt has an elastic waist that makes for an ultra-comfortable wearing experience. And while we weren’t quick to jump on the sheer moment dominating the fashion world, we love the peek-a-boo semi-sheer, ruffled bottom that compliments knee-high boots well.
Size range: US 2-US 8
Best Midi Dress
A classy, sophisticated dress fit for a chic woman. This everyday Nicholas dress comes with a detachable belt detail that cinches the waist and breaks up the silhouette’s midi length. The eye will naturally draw towards your décolletage thanks to the V-neck plunge and collared neck. Made with a wool/cotton blend, this weighted garment will keep you warm without suffocating you. Plus, this timeless dress comes in three other colors besides this moody wine red.
Size range: XS to XL
Best Mini Dress
Still on the hunt for the perfect New Year’s dress? We’ve got you covered. In case you missed our rules for dressing for the holidays, it’s all about going glam and embracing sequins. This luxurious Walter Barker mini comes fully lined for comfort on the inside and covered in sequins that shine brighter than a disco ball on the outside. It has adjustable straps for customizable wear, and we love how it’s slightly stretchy in fabric so you can slip it on and off without scratching up every inch of your body.
Size range: XS to XL
Best Formal Dress
A striking black gown is a must-have closet item for when those black tie and holiday party invitations start rolling in. Made with soft, slightly stretchy jersey, this dress will hug your curves and cascade dramatically off your waist. The cutout detail and gathered rouching along the side of the waist helps to create the illusion of a defined, hourglass waist. We love the drama that the single long sleeve creates, as if it were tailor made for a Bond girl.
Size range: US 0 to US 16
Best Winter Coat
We’re weak in the knees for anything shearling. This Helmut lang hooded coat is like combining your warmest blanket and childhood teddy bear into one stylish looking jacket. It features two slant front pockets for your wallet and keys, a zipper down the middle for easy layering and full lining inside, so the fuzz from the fabric doesn’t transfer to your clothes. We seriously can’t get over how functionable and cozy this faux shearling is—we have a feeling you’ll never want to take it off.
Size range: XS to L
Best Ribbed Sweater
The deep terracotta, olive green, concrete beige and sunset orange of this gorgeous knit are reminiscent of Tuscany in every way. Don’t be fooled by how thin and lightweight this sweater looks: The wool material and ribbed silhouette will keep the cool weather out. As for styling this beauty, we recommend color blocking with similar shades in suede or leather, like the model above.
Size range: US 0 to US 8
Best Chunky Turtleneck
When the forecast reads strong gusts of winds and low temps, chunky knits are essential. And we’re making room in our sweater collection for this dreamy light almond turtleneck. It’s made with thick wool, has a cable knit design and a subtle marled detailing throughout. It even has slight slits along the wrist and the back of the turtleneck. Clearly, no detail was spared in the making of this Rag & Bone beauty. Simply throw it on over jeans and add your coat and scarf for maximum warmth.
Size range: XXS to L
Best Pinstriped Blazer
Finding the perfect blazer is no easy feat. Our rule of thumb when it comes to finding your go-to is to pay attention to the fit, color, pattern and overall style. And we assure you, this Rag & Bone pinstriped beige blazer is just right. It’s made from 100 percent cotton that breathes well and feels incredibly soft on the skin. Plus, the striking notch lapels, single button fastening and flap pockets give it that casual yet polished vibe. Throw it over a classic plain white T-shirt and leather pants to effortlessly go from board meeting at nine to happy hour at five.
Size range: US 00 to US 16
Best Chelsea Boot
When winter rolls around, last year’s scuffed and visibly loved Chelsea boots suddenly begin to look a little dreary. And we’re suckers for a hefty winter shoe that can withstand the terrain and look like they’ve walked straight off the runway. This leather pair from Ganni has a chunky, rubber lug sole with good traction and grip at the bottom. Plus, the elastic sides and pull tabs at the front and back of the shoe make it easy to slip on and off. Our favorite detail is the juxtaposition between the caramel leather and stark black rubber.
Size range: US 6 to US 11
Best Combat Boot
Okay…we are most definitely allowed to have options when it comes to winter shoes. Just look at these suede combat boots and dare tell us otherwise. The stark contrast between the black rubber sole and laces against the ecru suede base looks entirely expensive. Made with 100 percent leather, they’re available in three gorgeously wintery colors: classic black, ecru and tan.
Size range: US 5 to US 7.5
Best Bright Bag
This rich yellow bag can fit your cardholder, keys, lipstick, lip liner, touch-up powder and an iPhone. It also comes with a detachable shoulder strap, so you can wear as a clutch or throw across your body for a bold pop of color. While the yellow speaks for itself, we can’t take our eyes off that mesmerizing gold hardware.
Best Shoulder Bag
Finding a staple bag made from quality materials that doesn’t breaking the bank can seem impossible. Enter: BY FAR’s chocolate shoulder bag. While the hue is muted enough that it won’t outshine your outfit, the unusual oblong shape will make everyone in your life double-take and ask, “Where’d you get that?” Plus, it has a silver zipper along the top that’ll keep your valuables safe, and is large enough to hold your most essential goodies.
