Share

You can never have too many wardrobe basics. After all, when you're stocked on staples like T-shirts, simple dresses, and versatile layering pieces, it makes it so much easier to put together an outfit in the morning. But because our attention is often drawn to the latest pair of It heels or statement-making coat, the task of shopping for knit tees and and everyday pants often gets neglected. That's where this list of cute basics under $30 from Amazon comes in; stock your closet with a handful of these highly-rated tops, bottoms, dresses, and shoes, and you'll be equipped with the building blocks you need to put together a no-fuss outfit every single day.

If you've just started foraying into the whole wide world of Amazon fashion (it's a gem, isn't it?), the selection of basics is definitely where to start. Though you can also find impossibly chic dresses and an incredible selection of statement-making jewelry, you simply can't go wrong with the knit tees, comfy pants, and jersey dresses that have garnered a cult-like following across the reviews section. And that's the other thing about the pieces on this list: each one has hundreds, if not thousands, of wildly positive reviews — so you can feel assured about your purchases.

Scroll on to shop these 37 ridiculously cute fashion staples from Amazon.
