8 Versatile Fashion Basics Your Wardrobe Needs

As fashion editors, it’s more or less our job to source the market for the latest trends and test out various items that could be of interest to others. In fact, we recently highlighted the casual fall dresses we have our eyes on at the moment. Next, we thought we’d focus on one of the hardest-working sections in our closets: our basics. These simple items—like neutral tees and classic knits—act as the foundational elements in our wardrobes in that they can easily be mixed and matched with some of our other trendier items to create those well-balanced, forward looks. On that note, there are actually a few basics that we’d consider to be the handiest items in each of our specific wardrobes.

The items in question are basics that we routinely wear on repeat and would essentially never give up thanks to their versatile nature. If you’re intrigued and looking to mix in a few fresh basics into your rotation, keep scrolling for an edit of the pieces we swear by and shop inspired finds as well.
