I'm All About Cheap Basics and Recommend These 27
While I dabble in more statement looks from time to time, the majority of my wardrobe is made up of basics. For me, there’s just something effortlessly chic about throwing on a simple outfit made up of timeless staples. Case in point? My daily uniform of a moto jacket, tee, black jeans, and boots. And while investing in more expensive items definitely makes sense based on the cost-per-wear value, I relish in the fact that a hefty chunk of the basic items I swear by skew on the lower-priced end. While you might also have a range of affordable staple pieces in your arsenal, a refresh could be of interest to kick off this new season. Yes? Well, if so, I’m sharing 27 cheap but stylish basics I think are worth considering right now. Keep scrolling to elevate your wardrobe for $50 or less. A simple collared shirt with a little something extra (cue the ruffle details). The tie accents make this top even sweeter. This comfortable bodysuit is incredibly versatile. The perfect white tee? Check. This lightweight button-down is ideal for those warmer days. The ruching elevates this basic tank even more.  V into this boxier cut. A puff-sleeve top isn't necessarily a simple basic but more of a next-level basic for spring. A polo is classic but also incredibly modern. Just in case you also need a perfect black tee. Classic but statement-making. Polka dots are one of those trends that will never go out. Loving the vintage feel of this ringer tee. Cute cardi? Check. Feeling the coordinating-set vibe. Shop the matching Knitted Cardigan ($40). This green hue is basically a neutral because it can go with just about anything. Layer this cropped cardigan over your favorite tee or tank. A lightweight cardigan like this just might become your new go-to. Incredibly sleek tucked into trousers. A spring staple for sure. Wide-cut jeans are where it's at. Yep, joggers are officially a fashion-girl basic at this point. Dress these timeless black leggings up with booties or down with sneakers or mules. Because straight-leg jeans are a go-to style. Flared jeans are gaining steam. Can't go wrong with true blues. Leather leggings will amp up any outfit. Next, check out the basic capsule wardrobe an NYC girl swears by.
