17 Transitional-Style Staples For A New Season (& A New Normal)

In our former lives, a roundup of wardrobe staples for the tricky seasonal limbo that we’re about to enter (not quite winter, not quite spring) would have consisted of wool blazers, heeled boots, and maybe a structured dress or two. Well, we’re stuck in a different kind of limbo now; confined to our neighborhoods, our homes, and our computer screens. But, our closets are likely still in need of that same seasonal refresh — and we're hankering for some new, mood-boosting duds to help shake off the winter blues.

We’ve still got our ears to the ground when it comes to what’s trending — both among our style-conscious staff, our readers, and the greater shopping public — and while this assortment of 16 staples might look a little different than last year’s, it still reflects what we’re buying — and what we want to buy — as we round the seasonal corner. Whether it’s a best-selling sweatsuit, a wear-with-everything white sneaker, or a house dress for those rare times you actually make it out of the house, there a wardrobe workhouse for you in the list ahead.
