The Wardrobe Basics With Glowing Reviews on Amazon

Not to be dramatic, but my life has not been the same since I acquired an Amazon Prime membership a year ago. Thanks to the free two-day shipping, I rely on the site for all my household essentials such as coffee filters and toothpaste. The e-tailer stocks just about any product imaginable, from the chicest lingerie trends (we're talking under $20) to the travel item that will change your life. Next up: wardrobe basics.

At any given time, I have a handful of T-shirts, socks, leggings, and other wardrobe basics sitting in my Amazon shopping cart. Whenever I lose another pair of socks or am running low on plain tees, I know exactly where I can turn for an affordable fashion find. Ahead, I'm breaking down the best wardrobe basics to shop for on Amazon, along with the picks that (sometimes hundreds) of the site's reviewers have vouched for. And I've curated this edit right in time for Prime Day on July 17 (for a sneak peek at the select products that will have Prime Day deals, download the Amazon app).

Standout review: "I am bringing a few of these traveling. They are made of rayon so you can work out in them. They will be used as a regular top, workout top and PJ top on my trip. Super versatile. Already worked out in one and the fabric was wicking and the swingy style allowed some nice airflow while running. The fabric is soft and not see through. I have a short torso so I like the length of the scoop neck."

Available in sizes XS to XXL.

Standout review: "This T-shirt is very good quality and goes perfectly with just about everything. I ordered one size up hoping it would be a little baggy but it wasn't as baggy as I wished it was. It's still very cute and I've been considering getting the black one."

Available in sizes S to XXXL.

Average rating (78 reviews): 4.3 out of 5 stars

Standout review: "I absolutely love this tee. It is my new favorite. The fabric is soft and thick. Even after multiple washes it is still soft. The sleeves are longer but not to the elbow. The length of the shirt goes past my hips so I have no worries I will show skin I want to keep covered."

Available in sizes S to 5X.


Average rating (1532 reviews): 4.4 out of 5 stars

Standout review: "I tend to have a bit of a hard time finding jeans that fit my body well. I have a booty and thick thighs, so I need something that hugs my lower body in the right places and these jeans do just that! They're stretchy enough to make room for my curves which is a must for my body type."

Available in sizes 4 to 20.

Average rating (458 reviews): 4.3 out of 5 stars

Standout review: "These jeans fit very well and go in at the waist enough so that they don’t slide down but they also don’t rise up above my belly button. They hold up to more than one day of wear without losing their stretch. I am happy with the length (I could use another inch) for flats and sandals, but they will also work well with boots. Ankle boots may not work because I'd have too much skin showing between shoe and pant. Overall, though, they are great for the price and they accomplished what I was looking for."

Available in sizes 4 to 18.

Average rating (510 reviews): 4.3 out of 5 stars

Standout review: "The "Marilyn" fits me best because I like a higher waist. The fabric of this particular style number is of medium weight, what I would describe as traditional hammered darker blue jeans material (not summer lightweight). I really like them. I am 65, 5'7", 130 lbs, and the size 4 fit perfectly. It's important to remember that NYDJ should fit snug when new or clean out of the dryer, not tight, and because of the stretch of the fabric, they will miraculously loosen up to form fit your body after about half an hour."

Available in sizes 0 to 18.

Standout review: "Well, I tried these bad boys on and WOO DAMN. They are soft AF, completely opaque, AND they wear like normal leggings/footless tights. I ordered the yoga waisted lettings and even wearing these twice before a wash, they stay up: no rolling, bunching, awkward need to hoist your tights back to where they belong. They are so comfortable that I felt the desire to wear leggings as pants for the first time. I would wear them EVERY DAY if I had ordered more than two pair. Despite the color being a little different than advertised (though the black pair is colored true to description), I would 100% recommend these to any human who is seeking good quality, comfort, and aesthetic."

Available in sizes S to XL.

Average rating (848 reviews): 4.2 out of 5 stars

Standout review: "I never take the time to write reviews and I order off Amazon all the time. I am a Lululemon fanatic and particularly love the Align pant (which retails for $85+) but can't afford or rationalize buying tons of them.

"These remind me of the Align pant so much! They are cut almost identical, but the fabric is a little stiffer. This isn't a bad thing; the Align pant is almost too buttery soft and it pills and gets caught on everything. There is slight compression and gives a nice booty lift. Mine are not see through, even when squatting. I love love love these and am going to order several more."

Available in sizes XS to XXL.

Average rating (3627 reviews): 4.2 out of 5 stars

Standout review: "These are my favorite leggings, and I buy leggings a lot! I am 5'7", about 190lbs and bought a large, they fit perfect!! The best part about them (which is hard to find in most leggings) they are nowhere near see-through, even while doing squats. Some comments mention there is a seam that wasn't completely sewn in the waistband, it's not, it's actually a 'hidden' pocket and [is] quite convenient too. If I could give this a 10-star review I would!"

Available in sizes XS to XL.


Average rating (274 reviews): 4.3 out of 5 stars

Standout review: "I wear them for my Aerial classes and they are perfect. They fit snuggly enough so that I can be upside down and they stay in place but are not so tight that they are uncomfortable. They are also super soft and have a bit of stretch to them. I will definitely be purchasing more."

Available in sizes S to XXL.

Average rating (346 reviews): 4.4 out of 5 stars

Standout review: "In the summer, I hit a point where I want to rebel against constantly wearing a bra. That's where these shirts come in. These are amazing for layering in spring/fall, but I have worn them stand alone in the summer as well. They are comfortable, semi-supportive without squeezing you in. (C cup so they've got some work here.) In a pinch, I even wore them to yoga class with no real issues. I can do stairs in the house with no problem, but I wouldn't go running in them. I have a longer than normal torso and I have no coverage issues or problems with the back constantly riding up during the day. A solid buy that will become a wardrobe staple for me."

Available in sizes XS to XL.

Standout review: "This top is so flattering! I ordered my normal size and the flare is not so wide as to look like a maternity top; quite the opposite. It gives the "good old-fashioned tank top" a new look and I couldn't be happier. As a 50-year-old, I prefer to wear my tops untucked and with this top having the little flare at the bottom, it does not cling."

Available in sizes S to XL.

Standout review: "The cloud foam insole lives up to its name: they were comfortable from the get-go. I wasn't sure what to believe- there were reviews that said they fit a little big—a couple of reviews said they fit small. They do feel a little bit bigger but not enough for me to go down a size- especially if I wear them all day long. The style is classic court shoe—clean and without the ugly toe cap usually found on this style. The laces are way too long, an easy fix, I can live with buying a shorter pair of laces. If I had to say anything about the shoe that I would change is that I wish they had a bit more of an arch, which would make them better for all-day wear."

Available in sizes 5 to 9.5.

Average rating (155 reviews): 4.5 out of 5 stars

Standout review: "I have been shopping for white leather sneakers for some time and surprised that my childhood brand Keds actually make a great pair. It fits true to size and is very comfortable with no break-in required."

Available in sizes 5 to 11.

Average rating (2,442 reviews): 4.4 out of 5 stars

Standout review: "These are so much fun that just putting them on lifts my spirits! I love showing people the soles too. I was worried they wouldn't go with any of my outfits, but that kind of turned out to be the point. When I wear these, they just naturally become the focal point of my outfit, so it doesn't matter that they don't "blend" with much. As for comfort and fit, it's just as expected for Vans. In case this is your first pair, that means they're very comfortable and they fit great."

Available in sizes 5 to 14.5.


Average rating (53 reviews): 3.9 out of 5 stars

Standout review: "This is such a cute and flattering top. Was very surprised at the material, I thought it would be thin because of the price but it’s actually well made. The bottom was just a tad long for me but I just sewed the buttons up."

Available in sizes S to XL.

Average rating (24 reviews): 3.9 out of 5 stars

Standout review: "Honestly, I seldom find bodysuits that feel comfortable on my body. I'm tall and have a long torso, so they typically aren't "long enough". This bodysuit fits fine and isn't too snug (plus, it doesn't unsnap when I bend over). The fabric is very light, so it's ideal to wear under my sheer tops or layer under my other clothing depending upon the season. Thongs are tricky if you're not used to them, but I wear them on occasion so I don't find them uncomfortable."

Available in sizes S to XL.

Average rating (133 reviews): 3.2 out of 5 stars

Standout review: "These bodysuits are very well-made and maintain their fit all day. It doesn’t stretch much, either. The thong portion isn’t too thick so it's comfortable. The shirt bottom sits at the hip, so it's okay to wear with jeans or skirts. I'd say that a backless bra or going braless is a must so as not to show your bra."

Available in sizes XS to 5X.
