Mid Rise Dark Wash Stretch+ Jean Leggings

Stretch Jean Legging

A pair of jeans is essential to our wardrobe. A pair of leggings is essential to our wardrobe. A pair of jean leggings? Double essential to our wardrobe! These pants feature the perfect amount of stretch for all-day comfort. Definitely a much cuter option than our old, baggy sweatpants. “Fits like a glove,” one shopper said, among hundreds of others loving their new bottoms!

Tulip Sleeve Sheath Dress

Express Dress

This dress is sleek, it’s simple and it’s available in five colors! The tulip sleeves are an adorable accent, dressing this basic up enough to wear to a nice event. We love the deep V and the clean, flattering lines on the torso, as well as the way the zipper flawlessly flows into the back seam. Day or night, we’re wearing this dress and we’re impressing, for sure.

V-Neck Essential Tank

V-neck Tank

This sleeveless top has an easy flow to it, hanging effortlessly out of high-waisted jeans or leather shorts. It’s the epitome of a basic tank we can wear anywhere, but the V-neck is just enough to make it entirely appropriate to wear to work or a nicer event. It all depends on how we style it! It’s all about the shoe pairing. This tank isn’t only available in one color, but seven, so we can have one for every day of the week!

Fitted Crew Neck Sweater

Crew Neck Sweater

Over 400 shoppers have expressed their love for this wardrobe staple. It comes in 14 colors, yes, 14, and has vertical ribbing which creates visual interest. Even basics can be eye-catching! This sweater is not only so easy to style, but it’s warm, “very comfortable and not itchy,” as one shopper reported. Others commented on how when they wear theirs, the compliments just keep on coming. Did we mention it’s on sale? Yes, we’ll take two of each, please.

Express One Eleven Off The Shoulder London Tee

Off the shoulder top

This tee has an off-the-shoulder fit which we’re obsessed with lately. We can either bare our shoulders or add a cute accent of colorful bralette straps! Shoppers are loving the versatility, one saying they wore theirs to a benefit one week and to work the next. Another loved how easily it could be dressed up with boots or dressed down as a workout top for yoga outings!

Low Rise Barely Boot Editor Pant

Editor Pant

Denim is forever fabulous, but for a more work-appropriate basic, these pants are the way to go. They’re available in four colors, ranging from dark black to light pink. The updated waistband was made with extra stretch, so eight-hour days will fly by without a hitch. No more folding our waistband down underneath our top because we can’t handle the physical pressure! Yeah, we’ve all been there. These stylish pants have our backs. Or our legs, to be more accurate.
