One of the most common mistakes people make when building a wardrobe is placing too much emphasis on bold statement items they think they might wear some day, given the proper occasion. Of course, those risky, trend-forward pieces have their place, but it’s important to balance them with more versatile pieces that'll come in handy on a day-to-day basis. While Amazon may not be the first place that comes to mind when it comes to quality basics and classic wardrobe staples, the online retailer is actually a veritable treasure trove of high-quality, timelessly chic pieces that look great on everyone — all at affordable price points you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.

If your collection of easy, go-to essentials could use an update, you’re in luck. This list features some of the most impressive staple pieces currently available on Amazon. While the items you'll find here range from basic knit tanks to impeccably tailored jumpsuits, they’re all the types of pieces that look great, feel great, and will never go out of fashion. Better still, each of the pieces on this list rings in at just $35 or less, meaning you’ll still have plenty of room in your budget to splurge on the season’s hottest trends. So go ahead, stock up on a few key pieces — and feel confident that you'll always have something reliable to wear.
