A chic trench coat is a true must-have in any closet worth its salt. I love this one from Everlane, yes, because it's 50 percent off, but also because it exemplifies a classic trench. It's done in traditional khaki (although you can also shop it in dark cocoa and black), and the sharp lapels and belt create a very crisp and chic effect. It's fully lined, a major plus for the colder weather, and is made of 100 percent cotton (save for the lining, which is crafted from recycled polyester).
I'm a huge fan of a bomber jacket. This option from Madewell, with its cozy quilting and wool fabrication, is at the top of my to-buy list. Akin to a puffer jacket, this bomber boasts ribbed, wind-blocking cuffs and quick front snaps, both details that ensure you'll stay warm regardless of the weather. Plus, it's made of an Italian wool blend, so you'll be nice and toasty. You can pick it up in soft camel if the heathered black-gray fabrication isn't for you. Use code LETSGO for 50 percent off at checkout.
The odds are that you already have a leather jacket in your outerwear arsenal. But you probably don't have a longline style—like this knee-length option from Moon River. It's made from faux leather with a glossy crinkled finish. The streamlined shape and minimal details mean it'll go with practically everything in your closet.
'90s minimalism is a key trend for Winter '23 (when isn't it?), and Reformation's take is typically lust-worthy. This enveloping coat is made from Mocha-colored wool, so it's not as harsh as black but will still go with just as many outfits. It's defined by peak lapels, and it has two roomy flap pockets for storing the essentials or keeping your hands toasty on extra cold days.
Nothing says winter quite like a cable-knit sweater, and Madewell puts a fresh spin on the winter classic with this cropped version. It has a relaxed fit and sloping V-neckline - perfect for framing your favorite pendant necklace or crisp shirt.
Your eyes went straight to the price tag, and for good reason! Cyber Monday means this cozy V-neck sweater is marked down to a lovely, very doable $224. Butt if you need some extra convincing as to why you should press "buy." consider this: Taylor Swift owns this exact Reformation sweater. And don't we all want to twin with Taylor? This oversized, drop-shoulder sweater is made of a blend of fine-gauge recycled cashmere and comes in cherry red, ivory, gray, and light mauve.
Who doesn't love a classic Breton-striped top? The nautical-inspired style is crucial in unlocking the highly sought-after French fashion aesthetic, and it's beloved by top-tier minimalists—Kate Middleton, for instance. I personally plan to snag this lined sweater by Everlane. It's made of a cashmere blend—50 percent recycled and 50 percent virgin—and boasts a boxy fit with a slightly cropped silhouette, which is a key combo to ensure a sweater doesn't swallow you whole.
You're aware that red is the color trend of the season—arguably, the year. This cozy 100 percent cashmere sweater from Nordstrom's mainline is an easy way to tap into trying the cherry shade. Not sold on red? Try any of the 16 other color options. The silhouette is a classic crewneck, making it truly timeless, and the fit is slightly oversized yet not baggy.
Black jeans are a wardrobe failsafe, and you'll turn to this 'Delton' pair from The Row season after season. Refined enough for the office, they have a high-rise waist and relaxed straight-leg jeans that look as good with sandals or sneakers as boots and stilettos.
When you need new jeans, you turn to Levi's. The brand is synonymous with high-quality denim at affordable price points—and it has been since its foundation in 1853. The classic 501 style has ranked high on my list of Levi's jeans that I want to buy. And thanks to the discounted magic of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it's on super sale, so I'm more than happy to at long last pull the trigger.
Say hello to your new favorite pair of everyday jeans. Good American is known for its expansive size range and feel-good denim (in addition to being co-founded by Khloe Kardashian!), and this high-waisted Good Legs pair encapsulates both points. It features a contoured waistband that's designed specifically so it doesn't do the dreaded waist-to-pant gap. You're able to shop from a slew of sizing, too, from 00 to 26.
Ask any fashion editor what their favorite denim brand is, and there's a very high chance they'll answer with an enthusiastic, "AGOLDE!" I personally am a major fan of the brand and plan to snag these laidback cargo pants that are currently discounted on Shopbop. With their two supersized side pockets, they tap into the utilitarian bottoms trend without going full-tilt into gorpcore mode.
A sweater dress like this one by Wyeth is all but guaranteed to sell out. Here's why: The color makes it an easy-to-style neutral piece, and its design is classic and uncontroversial, making it almost a universal closet-pleaser. It features a sloping neckline framed with a relaxed polo collar, long sleeves and comes in at just below the knee, meaning you can definitely wear it into the office. Snag this easy piece now while you still can.
Karlie Kloss wore a version of Jacquemus' 'Sierra' dress in The Hamptons, and it's been a brand best-seller ever since. The springy rib-knitting enhances your natural curves while being comfortable enough to wear all day and evening. The lingerie-inspired straps and signature logo hardware are brand signatures.
I don't know about you but I can't wait for holiday party season. I can easily imagine myself wearing this sequined stunner from Madewell for a seasonal cocktail soirée or formal dinner party. And yes, while it's a flashy piece, it's quite classic. Look to details like its straight square neckline and spaghetti shoulder straps, for example. Use code LETSGO at checkout for 50 percent off.
