5 Staples to Wear Now (and Later)

We’ve entered a time of year when opening the weather app feels like biting into a mystery-flavor jelly bean—you never know what you’re going to get. Getting dressed in the face of meteorological uncertainty requires a two-step approach: 1) assemble a lineup of cross-seasonal all-stars, and 2) stock up on add-ons for any kind of forecast. Here’s how to set yourself up from now till summer.

THE LOUNGE SET

Because we’re all for staying in the comfort zone, we see your sweatsuit and raise you one silky-soft set that’s game for lunch pickups (just add cargo jacket), weekend picnics (some packable ideas here), or even just calling in your usual.

THE SHIRTDRESS

Did you know that your closet’s swiftest outfit-maker also happens to be its most versatile? A puff-sleeve shirtdress, while sweet worn solo, has styling potential in spades. Just leave the bottom few buttons undone and add a pair of wide-legs. It’s, well, a cinch.

THE DENIM JACKET

The pros of a good jacket read a lot like those of a significant other: Dependable. Down to earth. Keeps you warm on cold nights and sticks by you through every bold (styling) choice you make.

THE CARDIGAN

Wispy and breathable. Thick and plush. Whatever your preference, a cashmere cardigan is always relevant, as both a practical layering piece (it’s a button-down’s best friend) and a prim accessory (shout-out to the shoulder-drape).

THE CAFTAN

You may have purchased it with vacation in mind, but the shin-grazing hem makes it real-life-ready, too. A chill-thwarting trench—plus the appropriate shoes, shades, and a shimmer of gold on your pinkie—is all you need to make your next wine run.
