Every January I have a renewed energy for to tackle my closet. I have specifically been taking inventory of my collection of basics to see what’s in dire need of an update. Stylish basics, in fact, are what my wardrobe primarily consists of, so they are always top of mind. Not only do these pieces tend to be comfortable and easy to mix and match, they often have a timeless quality as well. Even so, it’s time to store (or even sell or donate) some of the old staples and make room for some fresh additions.
For this good old-fashioned closet clean out, I am focusing on incorporating new basics that not only feel more modern, but elevate my everyday looks. Think of an update for everything from simple socks to stylish sweaterdresses (the slouchier the fit, the better), classic outerwear, and more. Ahead, check out 5 basics that have served me well in the past and what I am swapping them out for this season.
