5 Reader Must-Haves

 

 

5-reader-must-haves-january-2021
Shop Sizes XXXS-XXL: J. Crew

 

J.Crew 365 Stretch T-Shirt

 

Readers raved about the cozy J.Crew 365 tee forever and it still remains a top favorite. It’s lightweight, soft against the skin, and super versatile! Plus it’s durable after numerous washings. 

I also picked up a white and black one after heeding readers’ recommendations, totally falling in love with this t-shirt, literally wearing it in every season, either with my Anatomie pants or paperbag shorts. It’s offered in sizes XXXS-XXL, and comes in three great shades! 

 

I adore this tee so much, I even did a full review on it!

Shop Nordstrom: Sizes XXS-XXL | Sizes 1X-3X 

 

Zella Live In High Waist Leggings 

 

The Zella Live In leggings are a huge reader favorite from way back and are still holding strong. They’re insanely comfortable, breathable, and chafe-free because of the moisture-wicking fabric. The smooth flatlock seaming won’t rub or irritate, which is awesome for traveling, working well for warm or cold climates.

We personally adore how Zella has diverse sizing, these are available in sizes XXS-XXL and 1X-3X.

 

Of course, this reader pick could not go unnoticed, find out more about these magical leggings in our Zella review!

Shop: Nordstrom | Saks Fifth Avenue | Zappos | Amazon

 

Lilly Pulitzer®  Bambrey Merino Wool Dress

 

Cozy dresses have been a topic of conversation lately, so it makes sense this Lily Pulitzer wool dress is a top pick. The rhinestone buttons on the sleeves and jewel neck are classy while the 36” length has a modern, fun feel. And the merino wool fabric will keep you warm, without trapping moisture. 

Would look amazing with knee-high boots, ankle booties, and flats. And don’t forget you can layer it with a blazer or trench coat as well.

Blondo Que Waterproof Boot

 

This brand is quintessentially popular with readers and the Blondo Que ankle boots are a gorgeous pick! But these puppies aren’t all pretty as they’re also waterproof (goodbye, puddles!) and have a solid rubber sole to tackle surfaces. As usual, they’re practical yet super stylish.

 

TFG readers love Blondo so much, we did a complete review on the Blondo Villa ankle booties!

Shop: Nordstrom | Neiman Marcus 

 

Longchamp ‘Le Pliage’ Backpack

 

The Longcham Le Pliage backpack gets high marks from readers because it’s water-resistant, packable, and lightweight, weighing less than a pound. 

Users also say the canvas material is durable for the rigors of day to day or travel. Most of all, the style is why people return to this bag again and again. It’s the very definition of simple, understated chic!

Do you also like the Rebecca Minkoff backpack? We did a comparison review between the Le Pliage and the Minkoff, so check it out!

 

 

Honorable Mentions

 

We tried to keep it to just the top five, but these other popular reader items deserve a little spotlight too!

 

 

5-reader-must-haves-january-2021

Shop Sizes XS-XXL: Amazon | Eddie Bauer | Walmart 

 

Eddie Bauer Mountain Ripstop Long-Sleeve Shirt

 

The Eddie Bauer Ripstop shirt is so versatile and comfy which seems to be why the readers love it. It can be paired with jeans, skirts, and shorts, and can be layered with sweaters when the chill hits. 

Personally, I adore this top myself! I wear it flying, to hotter destinations because it’s moisture-wicking, or in colder climates under a merino wool sweater—it even made my top 10 list for 2020. Comes in sizes XS-XXL and multiple colors!

Shop Sizes XXS-XXL: Nordstrom 

 

Zella Strength Racerback Tank

 

Readers are all about clothes that feel great and the Zella tank fits the definition of lightweight, comfortable, and able to double as a workout top or something to snuggle into at home.

It’s also perfect to layer over regular leggings or fleece-lined leggings, and then throw a warm cardigan over it. Available in sizes XXS-XXL and in some gorgeous, soft colors!

Shop: Amazon | Eddie Bauer | Walmart

 

Eddie Bauer Trail Tight Leggings (Regular, Petite, Tall, and Plus)

 

The past year has seen a big shift in exploring our very own backyards. These Eddie Bauer leggings work not only for hiking but even just for lounging!  

I wore these myself hiking around the Red River Gorge in Kentucky and they held up well! The moisture-wicking polyester/spandex fabric has UPF sun protection and odor control properties. The best feature is the three pockets (two cargo, one zip vertical) where you can slip in essentials.

Comes in regular, petite, tall, and plus sizes right here!

Shop: Jibs

 

Jibs Slip On Sneakers

 

Jibs slip on sneakers are uber comfy yet cute! With a perforated upper is 100% real biodegradable-leather, they’re environmentally friendly and also have a Therma rubber sole which is strong and flexible. Plus the natural cork insole wicks away moisture and doesn’t retain odors.

The ones I bought recently are the Jet Black and Onyx—I wear mine everywhere!

 

 

5-reader-must-haves-january-2021

Shop: Amazon | Rockport | Zappos

 

Rockport Copley Tall Waterproof Boot

 

Readers have been into knee-high boots and the Rockport Copley boots land top of the list. Made of durable leather, they’re able to handle the elements with a Hydro-Shield waterproofing layer and a rubber sole that’ll give hours of walking time.

They also have an EVA foam footbed and terrific arch support in the midsole. No wonder they’re so popular—very cute and comfortable!
