We are not just at the beginning of a new year here, but of a new decade. It’s exciting! But maybe your closet isn’t. Maybe your closet is begging for a refresh—not of anything particularly crazy or garish, but good, stylish stuff that’ll make sure your 2020 looks even better than your 2019 did. Lucky for you, this is a great time of year to be shopping, with loads of steals to be found from all the post-holiday sales going on. One of our favorites? Nordstrom’s, which is chock-full of wardrobe essentials that currently cost much less than they used to. Here are 12 of our favorites.
Relaxed Baseball Cap
Let’s start off easy: just a simple, slightly faded, black baseball cap with the most classic of Adidas logos.
2-Pack Cotton Trunks
Good underwear is quite literally the foundation of a great outfit. Get some now (and throw out the stuff that’s seen better days).
Wide Leg Corduroy Trousers
If you haven’t dipped your toes—well, legs—into the world of wider trousers yet, it’s time. This pair lets you try things out without making a huge investment. Oh, also: the chain is removable (and you should probably remove it).
Glen Plaid Merino Wool Scarf
There is such a thing as a grown-up scarf. It’s good to have on hand to pair with other, you know, grown-up stuff. Even those cords!
Type III Faux Shearling Lined Denim Trucker Jacket
Like your favorite Levi’s Trucker, just warmer.
Air Ghost Racer Sneaker
A classic that’s been brought back from the archives, the Ghost Racer is a favorite around the Esquire offices for its vintage lines and penchant for bold color.
Monteverde Long Sleeve Button-Up Camp Shirt
You probably have a camp-collar shirt or two by now. But do you have a long-sleeve camp-collar shirt? No? Get this one.
Elastic Waist Slim Fit Pants
The elastic waist will be kind if you were a little too indulgent over the holidays, and it’ll still feel great once you’ve kept your resolution to drop a few. (Everyone totally keeps that resolution, right?)
Faux Shearling Trim Faux Leather Biker Jacket
A real shearling biker is a big investment. A faux shearling biker lets you spread your (proverbial) style wings without skipping out on rent.
Pala Shirt Jacket
The shirt jacket is a modern essential, as versatile as it is layerable. Haven’t you heard?
Maghill Waterproof Trench Coat
Barbour may be known for its waxed cotton, but this waterproof cotton/poly blend is a little more breathable and just as capable of keeping you dry in a rainstorm.
Single Breast Oversize Plaid Coat
It’s time for a great overcoat with a little personality. If you’re feeling bold, you can even wear it with that grown-up scarf.
