This past holiday season, almost everyone I knew was shopping. I, as an editor, scroll through hundreds of flashy and trend-forward items on a daily basis, so I'm a little less easily convinced by the promotional emails flooding my inbox. However, I am still human, so I did make a few purchases but primarily focused on the basics my wardrobe was missing. While the Mango bejeweled slingbacks and the under-$100 metallic jeans from Gap still pop up in my mind on occasion, the staples I've bought have already gotten plenty of wear in the first two weeks of 2023.
If you're curious as to where I scored my new set of basics, look no further than Mango, J.Crew, and Gap. You'll find everything you need—from classic oversize button-downs and point-toe slingbacks to of-the-moment staples like maxi skirts and wide-leg denim. The added bonus? All three retailers are running quite a few discounts right now, so you may even end up saving some money along the way. Keep scrolling to take a look.
