The Big 2021 Essentials Refresh
The basic tenets of an essentials refresh in the goop playbook are fairly simple: If it’s classic and trend-resistant, can be worn with multiple existing items, and isn’t the kind of thing you’d feel compelled to slip past your partner in an effort to hide the packaging paper trail (“Another tie-dye sweatshirt?!”), consider it worthy of prime wardrobe real estate.
THE BASIC TEE
Confirmation that you can never have too much of a good thing? T-shirts. But not just any T-shirts. Our favorites run the gamut from fitted (but not too fitted) to slouchy (but never in that swallows-you-whole way) to perfectly draped (meaning they fall juuust right).

Yes, it’s 2021. And no, we’re not giving up our stretchy waistbands. Here, we give you heaven in the form of three can’t-take-them-off cozy sets—all enviable in fit, style, pulled-togetherness, and of course cool factor.
THE LAYERING DEVICE
Streamlined tanks are to your closet what comfortable socks are to sneakers: a base you’ll turn to 24/7—under sweatshirts, peeking out beneath scooped necklines, or tucked into swaying skirts when erranding, Erewhon-ing, or anything-else-ing.
THE BASE LAYER
Aside from versatile, stealth-sexy, and supremely chic, there’s another descriptor for these figure-flattering bodysuits: convenient. They’re one-minute outfit makers you’ll turn to on the regular—no extra styling tricks (or perfect tuck attempts) necessary.
THE BETTER SWEATER
Some like them sumptuous and slouchy. Others prefer them polished with trails of buttons dotting the front. Many go the GP route with something classic pulled over the breeziest button-down they can find.

Contrary to popular belief, your jeans don’t have to be rigid, too tight, or second-skin skinny. The ones we’re gravitating toward these days—quintessential boot-cuts and straight-legs with ample room to breathe—deliver on the comfort front with absolute ease.

This category should come with a warning label: You will feel instantly coddled upon contact. From breathable cotton sets to stonewashed-linen kimonos and a bralette set made almost entirely from bamboo (underwires won’t be crashing this pajama party), these pretty yet pragmatic updates will take you from sofa to sheets in one soft swoop.
JUST IN CASE
On the off chance that you do have places to go (or very important baristas to see), you’re going to want to have a few mandatories stashed near the door. Things like lace-up sneakers, no-slip socks, and a roomy tote that holds—and goes with—everything, plus the washable face covering to match.
