Happy New Year! Before we say goodbye entirely to 2022, we wanted to share a recap of the favorite products you all loved during the month of December. Many of you stocked up on elevated basics and I have to say GOOD FOR YOU. A great wardrobe starts with the basics and without them, the other fun, exciting, and sparkly pieces you love simply can’t work. If your new year is starting out with a closet edit you may want to consider a few wardrobe staples that lay a perfect foundation in any outfit formula and make getting dressed so much easier. Keep scrolling for YOUR top 5 favorites plus a bonus.

Cozy Pull Over
Shearling and faux shearling is really having a moment right now. This cute Sweaty Betty 3/4 zip pullover is the perfect piece to throw over your tank or sports bra before and after your workout. But it's also great with jeans or lounge pants too. It’s super soft, cozy, warm, and comes in three other colors.
These boots were a favorite for a few months in 2021, 2022, AND are still going strong! You really can't beat the comfort and the styling options are endless....jeans, skirts, dresses, leggings. If you haven't already tried a lug sole boot, I highly recommend these! They're under $100 and very comfortable with the sock-like ribbed inset. If you already have the black, they come in 6 other color options.
These straight-leg jeans by L’Agence have a raw hem, high-rise, and are SO flattering and comfortable too. They are made of a stretchy denim fabric but retain their shape. They're the perfect pair of flared jeans that aren't TOO flared!
If you don't already have a cream or white sweater in your wardrobe, this slouchy Free People rib knit tunic is stylish, warm, and cozy. It has an oversized fit so I would recommend sizing down one size. I have it front tucked in the graphic image above. Left untucked, it will cover your bum. It's also on sale in a few other color options...linked those too!
I can see why this classic, plush belted coat was a favorite! The oversized shawl collar is on-trend, the wool fabrication will keep you warm all winter, and the streamlined cut and belted tie waist are super flattering. It's currently on sale in this gorgeous camel shade and grey, and also comes in black. Sizes are super limited, so I linked a very similar version of this coat that's a bit longer.
This ba&sh turtleneck sweater is another wardrobe basic with such lovely details. I love the super subtle ribbing, ruching at the shoulders, and balloon sleeves with fitted cuffs. It’s lightweight wool so you’ll stay warm, but the sleeves are thin enough that you can layer over them if you need to. It also comes in a beautiful heather beige.
After a decade in TV news, a desire to help women "look pretty" sparked a career pivot. I started my own wardrobe consulting business, styling "real" women for many years. In 2014, I changed direction again, using my TV background and styling expertise to launch this website and my YouTube channel. We are now a community of well over 1 million dynamic, vibrant, amazing women over 40... who know that age isn't something you need to hide from. For us, life is just getting started!!
