As our lives have all changed over the last year, our wardrobes have as well. For many of us—including this editor—sweatpants and loungewear have been on heavy rotation, replacing many of the pieces hanging in our closets. As the world begins to reopen, though, I’ve been starting to think about post-pandemic shopping and some of the pieces I’ll be wearing when things begin to return to normal.
While I’m not completely ready to give up comfortable fashion, I am excited to add some dressier pieces that I haven’t had a place to wear. An open-back Jacquemus dress and a show-stopping crystal-embellished Nué jacket are just a few that are topping my list.
Curious to hear which items our editors are eyeing for their personal “reemergence looks,” I asked them to share the pieces sitting in their shopping carts. From swimsuits in retro floral prints to cutout dresses to the heels they’re swapping in for flats, these are the 21 pieces we’re buying first.
