Basics form the backbone of every well-equipped wardrobe. While trendy items like snake leather pants and pastel-colored fur coats (on Instagram and others) are in the spotlight, affordable basics like seamless turtlenecks, classic outerwear and timeless footwear often tie these eye-catching outfits together.
In addition, basics are always worth the investment. These classic pieces don’t grow or shrink with the trends and remain a focal point in every season. The goal is to build a cabinet full of flattering, high quality, affordable basics that will last for years and pepper each season in a few inexpensive trending pieces.
Below are the affordable basics we love for 2021 and beyond. Your wardrobe (and wallet) will thank you.
