You know I love fashion…and also, I crave simplicity. As such, I’m prone to selecting quality staples for my closet and adding novelty items to create multiple outfits without a lot of leftover and unused apparel items. Below are six staple pieces I recommend adding to your closet for 2020. Let’s start with the hardest thing to purchase–in my opinion….pants!


Knit Denim Pants

Flowy Pants

Textured Palazzo Pants

Every woman needs a great, comfortable pair of jeans. National’s knit jeans are a great option for any time of year. If you’re like me and prefer a bit more detail to your look, opt for the flowy denim pants (my go-to for spring and summer thanks to the lightweight construction). Palazzo pants made a roaring comeback this year and the trend isn’t going away anytime soon. I recommend keeping these on hand for 2020.

Next up, tops to complement your new pant assortment. You know I’m a fan of layering, so I’ve selected three pieces that are easily paired or worn on their own. First up, National’s oh-so-soft mock turtleneck. This classic look transitions season to season with ease, especially with the addition of our fly away cardigan (which comes in an array of colors!) Lastly, and my personal favorite, the always classic button down blouse. You can wear this open over a sleeveless top or buttoned and tucked into your favorite pair of slacks.
