Basics are not basic. Well, okay, they really are. What we’re trying to say is that basics are not basic in that boring, don’t-really-need-it kind of way. Everyone needs a nice collection of basics to get them through the season.
1. Banana Republic Heritage Collection Long Sleeve Henley
When will you ever buy a long sleeve henley that’s $119? You probably wouldn’t (and we don’t blame you). Well, at the very least, you can discover what an originally priced $119 henley feels like. ThredUp is selling this slightly-worn henley for an affordable $27.99. Wear this while lounging on the couch or as a layer underneath a sweater on an afternoon picnic.
Every woman needs a nice pair of tights in her footwear arsenal because (1) tights are cozy and comfortable, and (2) they make pale, dry, wintery legs look great. We like this pair from ThredUp because of the tights’ warm, gold hue. While the color would look great all fall and winter long, we especially like them because they’d look lovely with other early autumn hues. Priced at $25.49.
3. Fleece-Lined Leggings
What’s the ultimate lounging and baking at home piece of clothing? Leggings! And it’s even better when the leggings are lined with fleece. (Yes, you can stop dragging all the blankets from your bed out to the couch now.) This pair comes from Anthropologie. Comes in three colors (sky, grey, and black) and priced at $19.50.
4. The Scoop Suit
Body suits are in this year, and we couldn’t be happier about that. Body suits are pretty darn comfortable and look great when paired with super tight pants and mini skirts. Or you can just wear this suit along with some sweatpants, socks, and a beanie… we won’t judge. Comes in amber glow and black. Priced at $58 from Free People.
5. Pretty Lady Layers Top
While this may be a less-basic basic, we love it anyway. This cute mockneck crop top would like amazing under a sweater, a cardigan, or if it’s a warm day, on its own. Priced at $78 from Free People.
