The Top 20 Bestsellers of 2020

In a year that felt chaotic at best, many of you found comfort in our tried-and-true classics.

By Caitlin Abber

As we look to 2021, we’re feeling a new sense of optimism. Some of us might be returning to our offices, beginning new chapters, or starting over completely—and getting dressed will be a big part of that. So whether you’re looking to refresh your wardrobe or just stock up on your standbys, we’ve counted down our list of the 20 bestsellers of 2020. If these pieces got you through this past year, chances are they can get you through anything. 


The Octavia Top

The chicest—and softest—Italian jersey Zoom top



The Aditi Dress

A motivating power dress that’s deceptively stretchy. 


The Didion Top

A dressed-up version of a T-shirt. Looks silky, but goes in the wash with everything else.  


The Harlem Skirt

The lounge-pants of skirts…but sexier.


The Leslie Top

The best cotton T-shirt you will ever own. 


The Emily Dress

Perfect length. Perfect sleeves. Perfect dress


The Zhou Culotte

One culotte to rule them all.


The Morandi Sweater

For those spring days when it’s just a little too warm for a jacket (coming soon!). 


The Sant Ambroeus Jardigan

Is it a jacket? Is it a cardigan? Regardless, it’s great to keep on the back of your desk chair


The Merritt Jardigan

See also: this fan favorite. Easily remixed.


The Antonia Top

For date nights (yes to more of those in 2021!)


The Nejvi Top

Another elegant-but-easy top that can be worn several ways, for anything this new year throws our way.


The Etsuko Dress

There’s a reason this is the dress we’re known for (sleeves, pockets, washable, looks good on everyone). 


The Hockley Pant

Pants that conform to fit you, not the other way around. 


The Mejia Pant

Trousers that show off your shoes (remember those?).


The Rowling Top

An elevated neckline, machine-washable, and always on-point.  


The Woolf Jardgian

This jardigan is like that first sip of coffee in the morning: necessary. 


The Foster Pant

No surprise here: Our #1 best-selling item of 2020 is the beloved Foster. It’s like the Meryl Streep of pants—wins every year, and no one is ever disappointed.
