I Find the Best Basics at Madewell—These Items Have My Attention Now



At the beginning of each season, I take a good, hard look at what I already own and decide which pieces are due for an update. These are the kind of pieces that my winter wardrobe is built on: a few pairs of jeans, a few chunky knits, and other layer-ready pieces that will keep me warm. And when it comes to finding the perfect basics to replace my old versions, I obviously head to Madewell. 

What was once just my favorite spot for jeans has become one of my go-to destinations when I need to add a few new wear-everywhere pieces into my collection, and this season is no different. I was on the hunt for a turtleneck and ended up finding 30 of the best updated basics that I can't wait to live in this season. 

If you, too, are in the mood to shop for a few new elevated winter basics from Madewell, keep scrolling. I have my eye on every single one of the pieces on this list, from a bunch of holiday party–ready dresses to some seriously amazing knits. 

Quarter-zips are seriously everywhere right now. 

Flannels are always a good choice in the winter. 

Wide-leg jeans are an all-time favorite. 

Sweater-vests are back in a big way this season. 

I'm loving anything with a square neckline this year. 

It looks like everything is quilted in 2021—even the blazers. 

These are a great way to transition out of wearing exclusively leggings. 

These high-rise jeans have a slim, relaxed leg for optimum comfort. 

Boilersuits are the key to looking put-together in under five minutes. 

Another great reason to expand your sweater collection. 

Finally, a sweatshirt that you can totally wear to work. 

It's never a bad time to stock up on your basic T-shirts. 

Swap your blue jeans for this pair of rose-toned cords. 

The crossover detail updates this otherwise simple pair of jeans. 

I have been living in shackets lately, and this one is my new favorite.
