2023 Best Sellers
Each year, we take a close look at the analytics we have access to and see which items you all loved. We share the top 5 best sellers each month so you can snag them (if you haven’t already), but it’s always fun and exciting to see how all of your favorite products ranked at the end of each year. Below, you’ll find the top 10 best sellers of 2023 that are still in stock. There were tons of chic pieces this year that you all shopped but are completely sold out…especially all the NSale finds! So, in addition to the top 10 best sellers, we’re also sharing 10 of Team Busbee’s favorites that are still in stock and heavy hitters in all our wardrobes.
If you’re looking for our November top sellers, you can find them in this post.
#1) Pistola Jeans
These Pistola jeans were a HUGE hit during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year and we completely understand why. They’re comfortable, affordable, and have the perfect straight-leg fit. It seems like more and more of you are open to baggier or more loose-fitting jean silhouettes. But if you’re not, then these Pistola jeans are a great option for dipping your toe into the trend. They have a classic straight-leg fit, no distressing, and they’re a flattering dark wash. The exact wash is sold out but we linked a few options below that are all the exact same style.
This was another 2023 NSale find and Erin loved it so much that she bought it in three colors! It’s still available in some sizes in multiple colors so if you see your size, grab it. We love the cable knit fabric and cool cropped raw edge hem. It works perfectly with a pair of high-rise bottoms and gives an effortlessly chic look. Plus it’s pretty affordable and currently on sale!
Next up is another affordable sweater (also from the NSale) but this one is a cardigan! This one comes in three colors and is the perfect length. It’s one of those pieces you can dress up with jeans, a blouse, and booties, or dress down with your favorite loungewear. It has subtle ribbing, a shawl collar, and it’s SO comfy!
#4) Hoff Sneakers
If you’re looking for a pair of super comfy but stylish sneakers, these Hoff sneakers are a great option at a wonderful price point. This brand was new to Erin but she tried these sneakers on and immediately loved them. They’re super comfortable (have a memory foam insole), lightweight, and unique. They only come in whole sizes so if you’re in between sizes, order one size up. Erin has the color ‘San Diego’ but we linked another pair that has similar neutral tones.
#5) AllSaints Scarf
There weren’t a lot of accessories on the best seller list this year but we weren’t surprised to see that this gorgeous AllSaints scarf made the cut. Every woman needs a high-quality, neutral scarf in their closet and this one is perfect. The white, gray, and black go with everything and the subtle print looks more abstract when it’s tied around your neck. The exact scarf is sold out but we we linked a very similar one!
Erin reviewed the popular Valentino rockstud sandals a few years ago and when we reshared the post this year, you all loved these look-a-likes from Tuckernuck! If you’re still not quite ready to spend the money on the Valentino’s, these sandals are a great alternative. Erin tried them and said they are VERY similar…and maybe even more comfortable than the real deal.
We’re not surprised these jeans are on the best sellers list. These Mother Hustler jeans are some of Erin’s absolute favorites and she owns them in multiple washes. These are a versatile dark wash (almost black), have the perfect cropped length, and have a frayed hem.
Loafers had a major resurgence this year and we’re here for it! These loafers by Dolce Vita are super lightweight, cool, and VERY comfortable! If you need new work shoes or just want a stylish pair of flats, these are SO good. They run a little big so we recommend ordering a half size down from your normal size.
This pair of James Perse joggers is an oldie but a goodie. These are the perfect pair of versatile, casual, and chic joggers. They aren’t too casual and can be dressed up or down, they’re extremely comfortable (elastic waistband), lightweight (100% cotton), and the mixed-media give them a cool, edgy look we love. They’re a little pricey but you’ll wear them all. the. time. They come in a few colors too.
We were surprised to see these on the best sellers list but we’re SO happy you loved them as much as Erin does! She’s wearing a pair of really cool Rag & Bone jeans that aren’t really jeans. She featured the jogger version of these pants in a few blog posts, early last year and these are a similar concept. The fabric is super soft and lightweight, they have an elastic waistband, they have a flattering wide-leg that’s very modern and on-trend, and…they have the look of jeans printed on them. Yep, they’re basically lounge pants that just look like jeans…without having to actually wear jeans! Just trust us…they’re amazing! The exact wash is sold out so we linked a similar option (and the joggers) below.
Team Busbee’s 2023 Favorites
#1) Vuori Joggers
Next, we want to share Team Busbee’s 2023 favorites that didn’t quite make the best-sellers list but are still worth mentioning in case you haven’t seen them. First up is this pair of Vuori joggers. They are SO soft and comfortable, moisture-wicking, and have such a great fit. Trust us…after you try them on, you’ll want them in every color!
It should be no surprise that one of our Team Busbee favorites is this Veronica Beard dickey blazer. Erin has owned hers for years and many Team Busbee members own and love theirs too. The fit is perfect, you can zip in and zip out different dickeys to get versatile looks, and it’s one of those classic wardrobe basics you’ll wear for YEARS.
Erin talks more about the blazer and breaks down the difference between her two favorite Veronica Beard blazers here on IG in case you’re interested.
#3) Affordable Cashmere Sweaters
If you’re a longtime follow or email subscriber, you know how much Team Busbee loves Bloomingdale’s cashmere sweaters. The two in-house brands at Bloomingdale’s, Aqua Cashmere and C By Bloomingdale’s Cashmere, make super high-quality, stylish, cool sweaters. Plus, they’re usually on sale…making them pretty affordable considering the quality of the cashmere. We linked a few of our favorites below.
These were easily Erin’s most-worn jeans of 2023. The straight-leg fit, dark wash, and high-rise make them the most perfect, flattering, versatile jeans! They’re a little pricey but you’ll wear these year-round and for many years to come. They run true to size.
This Spanx AirEssentials set is SO good. You can wear it lounging at home, for travel, or running errands. The fabric is unbelievably soft, lightweight, and breathable. The pants come in regular, tall, and petite lengths so you can get your perfect fit. The pullover has a 3/4 zip so you can adjust it however you like. Erin has it in three colors and both pieces run true to size.

These Schutz boots are heavy hitters for Erin every year and she loves them SO much that she owns them in four colors…black, chocolate brown, white, and python. They are just THAT good. They’re more versatile than you think too…wear them with jeans, pants, skirts, and dresses. They run true to size and while the stiletto heel isn’t for everyone, they are surprisingly comfortable for heels!
Another pair of booties Erin has owned for years and wears with everything is this pair of Stuart Weitzman sock booties. They’re pretty pricey but if you’re ready to invest in a pair of black dressy booties, these are Team Busbee’s vote!
For a more affordable and casual black bootie, these Steve Madden booties are a wonderful option. Erin bought her first pair of these booties in 2021 and the brand releases a new version each year that she’s also purchased. This year’s version is super lightweight! They have an edgier feel so that’s something to consider, but we really love them style with everything from jeans to dresses.
#9) Madewell Tote
Need a new work tote? Erin picked this one up during the fall and has been carrying it nonstop! The size is perfect, the leather feels very high-quality, and it comes in multiple colors.
This Banana Republic bomber jacket was the surprise hit of 2023 for us! Erin ordered it not really sure if she would like it and ended up loving it! It has a great fit, a unique look, and gives all the cozy vibes. We love the dramatic, oversized ribbed collar. The sleeves are also pretty roomy so you can layer chunkier sweaters underneath. And the herringbone tweed fabric is so beautiful in person. You can wear this with sweaters and jeans, dresses, skirts and blouses. It’s very versatile! It runs true to size but is designed to have a more relaxed fit. It’s also available in petite sizes.
