HOW TO BUILD A CORE CLOSET + GIVEAWAY WITH JANICE MEREDITH
What is a Core Closet?
You might be asking yourself, what in the world is a core closet? Don’t worry, we’ll explain. Have you ever had a closet full of clothes, but found it nearly impossible to put an outfit together? You may have even had the thought, “I don’t have anything to wear!” even though you've never had more clothes in your closet. That’s what a core closet is for, to help you create a foundation of essential styles, typically solid colours and basic pieces, that you can style endless different ways to create various different outfits. Creating a core closet is a great tool, if you want to have functional wardrobe pieces that will be worn and loved for years to come.
Why do Miik pieces make the foundation of a great core closet?
At Miik, we believe you never have to sacrifice style for comfort. We make incredibly buttery soft, eco-luxe fabrics with 4-way stretch, while maintaining timeless style and ultra flattering silhouettes. Our number one goal at Miik is to make you feel comfortable in your own skin. Our Founder and Designer Donna, makes sure that every time we come up with a new style, it works for every body type, age or size to make everyone feel their best.
Some of the reasons why our styles are great for a core closet:
- They’re incredibly comfortable and suited to real life and lots of wear
- Versatile styles; many of our tops and tunics are back to front reversible, can be styled into 5+ different outfits, and are easily paired with many other pieces
- Timeless over trendy. We create styles that are classic and will be in style for years to come, instead of just a season.
- They last FOREVER! Our fabric is durable and high quality rayon from bamboo or MicroModal. All our fabric is custom milled and ethically made in Canada, too!
- Easy care. You can throw them in the wash and lay flat to dry, and they constantly look good as new.
- They flatter many different body types. The fit and silhouette of our clothing is made to accentuate your best features.
The core closet blazer: Our Emily soft blazer
Whenever you think of blazers, do you think of stiff, itchy material — constricted arms and shoulders and lots of discomfort? Well, then that’s because you still haven’t met our Emily blazer, made from custom milled, luxuriously soft and stretchy fabric that will make you look super elegant while feeling like you’re in your pyjamas. The Emily blazer is going to be restocked in a number of different colours in just a few short weeks, so you can dress it up for a corporate office look — or dress it down with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt like Janice does here:
The core closet jumpsuit: Our Andie jumpsuit

It’s an absolute must-have if you love comfort and versatility. Because of its open-back it makes your life a whole lot easier when going to the bathroom. We all know the struggle of going to a public bathroom and having to strip naked! 😳 Not fun, am I right? So we got that one covered for you! Because of how nice it looks and fits you can easily dress it up for a fancy dinner with heels at your favourite restaurant, but you can also dress it down to go to the mall wearing sneakers or even you have friends over for brunch, and you can even pair it with flip flops for the beach. The versatility of the Andie is what makes it a top pick for your Core Closet.
