38 Chic Basics From Amazon That'll Go With Everything In Your Closet

Share

There's little out there that's better than a classic, well-made garment you can wear again and again. When it comes to your closet, nothing is more essential than chic basics that go with everything and can be used all year long — because they're the items you'll always turn to when you want to feel confident and polished. Best of all, if you find the right ones, they'll last forever. Think: black pumps, plain white T-shirts, and the perfect pair of jeans. While you're more than welcome to head to an endless amount of stores in search of them, you can surprisingly find some of the most timeless pieces on Amazon.

While all relatively simple on their own, these must-have items make for an incredibly stylish, put-together end look when layered and paired with other shirts, shoes, jackets, and accessories. The best part? They're backed by enthusiastic reviewers who turned to Amazon to build out capsule wardrobes or upgrade their basics to affordable, quality pieces. If you're beginning to imagine what this could mean for your wardrobe, stop procrastinating and start scrolling. Below, you'll find 39 basic closet staples to grow your closet one 'Add to Cart' at a time.

1. This Maxi Dress That's As Comfortable As Your Favorite Lived-In T-Shirt

Daily Ritual Women's Lived-in Cotton Short-Sleeve Crewneck Maxi Dress

$26

Amazon

Available in eight neutral colors, this classic T-shirt dress is a must-have for any and every wardrobe. The short sleeves and side slits make for a breezy essential that can be worn to work, out on the weekend, to the airport, and more. Made with 100 percent cotton, the dress is machine-washable but fares best when hung to dry. Dress it down with a pair of leather slides or take it to a rooftop happy hour with wedges or heels.

  • Available sizes: XS-XXL

2. This Flowy T-Shirt That Pairs Well With Jeans And Leggings

Daily Ritual Women's Plus Size Jersey Short-Sleeve Scoop Neck Swing T-Shirt

$14

Amazon

Made with 5 percent spandex, this semi-stretchy jersey T-shirt is breezy and comfortable. The scoop-neck swing silhouette hangs just below the hips, making it a perfect fit for both jeans and leggings. And because it's not made with 100 percent cotton, you won't have to worry about that perfect length shrinking when you toss it in the dryer. Best of all, it's available in six colors, of which you can buy individually or, if you opt for black, gray, or white, in a set of two.

  • Available sizes: 1X-7X

3. This Kate Spade Bangle Bracelet That's A Classic

Kate Spade Heart Of Gold Bangle

$32

Amazon

This beautiful Kate Spade bangle will add the prettiest gold touch to your overall look. Minimalist from the outside, the inside of the bracelet features a "HEART OF GOLD" engraving on the inside. While you're sure to want to wear it every single day, it comes with a coordinating storage pouch for the days you're less inclined to. It's great to wear alone or layered.

4. These Statement Earrings That Are Equal Parts Geometric And Minimalist

XZP Round Dangle Earrings

$13

Amazon

These gold disc earrings are the perfect statement accessory for any season. They're roughly 1-inch long, making them eye-catching but not over-the-top. If you're not a fan of the solid brushed gold finish, you can also choose from a navy and gold combo or brushed silver as a whole. Whichever you choose, each pair is made with nickel-free, hypoallergenic metal that won't irritate your ears (or, worse, turn them green).

5. This Crossbody Bag That Takes Casual Style To The Next Level

Deluxity Lightweight Medium Crossbody Bag

$13

Amazon

There's always room in your closet for another crossbody bag, right? This faux leather version pairs well with everything from jeans to your favorite cocktail dress. It features two sections: the larger purse body and a front zippered pocket accented with tassels. Inside the main body of the bag, you'll find a striped lining and two more pockets — one of which has a zip closure — and the other an open design that's perfect for storing your cell phone, wallet, or keys. If you'd prefer a more colorful bag, you'll be glad to know the adjustable-strap design comes in a rainbow of hues, ranging from black to blush.

6. This Multi-Textured Sweatshirt That Can Be Worn All Year Long

J. Crew Mercantile Women's Textured Pullover Sweater

Amazon

Add to your sweater collection with this quality, textured knit version from J. Crew. The relaxed fit is available in six colors, including an icy baby blue, warm blush, and rich burgundy.

  • Available sizes: XXS-3X

7. This Little Black Dress That Looks Incredible On Everyone

RACHEL Rachel Roy Women's Romy Dress

$119

Another little black dress never hurt anybody. To add to your list of faves, scoop this above-the-knee V-neck dress that can be worn from desk to drinks. The faux wrap silhouette features side rouching that looks every bit '90s chic while maintaining a modern appeal. The bonus? Unlike many other LBDs, this one is machine-washable, so you won't have to splurge on dry cleaning every time you wear it.

The crewneck silhouette makes it a versatile essential that can be dressed down with jeans or dressed up with slacks and a statement belt. And if you love the fit, get stoked because the shirt comes in eight other colors. Just remember that, since it's made with 100% cotton, it's best to keep it out of the dryer if you don't want it to shrink.

The perforated upper creates an airy effect, while the cushiony sole ensures comfort with every step. Whether you favor olive, black, navy, or blush shoes, there's a pick for you. If you prefer a solid upper, check out the black and taupe lizard print options. While just as cozy as their perforated counterparts, these leather-like options offer a slightly dressier accent.

  • Available sizes: 6-11

14. This Denim Jacket That's A Must-Have

Levi's Womens Classic Trucker Jacket
