How to Make Use of Your Entire Wardrobe

With two days left in 2020, we’re in major manifestation mode: herd immunity (huge shout-out to scientists), hugging friends (if your love language is physical touch, hang in there), and wearing something other than sweats (miss you, #ootd).

The first two will happen in time, but getting dressed when it’s dreary out requires a bit more problem-solving on your part. How do you layer without bulking up, incorporate color without looking seasonally confused, and make the resortwear that you stress-bought work for right now? You’ve got q’s, we’ve got a’s—here, four closet combinations to try in the coming weeks.

PATTERNS + PULLOVERS

Even the most tropical pieces can be kept in play year-round—all it takes is a couple of cold-conscious add-ons, like a knuckle-grazing knit (the chunkier, the better) and a pair of sensible shoes.

COZY DRESS + CASHMERE SOCKS
