It's true! These basics are calling—no, begging­—for a place in your spring and summer wardrobe. But more importantly than that, they deserve it. Simple enough to go with everything you own, but just a bit cooler and, dare I say, better, than your average top, dress, or sweatshirt, the below finds are a worthy addition to any closet. Plus, did I mention they're all under $50?

So whether you're looking for a pop of color to brighten up your box in your next Zoom meeting or (like me) plan to stick with neutrals for the foreseeable future but wouldn't mind some extra details here and there, these pieces—all of which are from our very own Who What Wear collection—will have you covered. Now, all you need to do is finish your spring cleaning if you haven't already, and, of course, scroll down to shop! When you're done, check out some of our favorite sandals to pair with all your new clothes here.

Next, everything I'd but from Zara for spring.


Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
