While fun coats and badass boots might get all the attention this time of year, you can't forget the unsung heroes of your cold-weather closet: basics for layering. They're the fundamental building blocks of your winter wardrobe and it would be pretty darn hard to face 20-degree weather without pieces like turtlenecks, thermal leggings, cozy socks, and more.
I will be the first to admit that I sometimes begrudgingly take off my coat inside because it's way cuter than what I'm wearing underneath, but that doesn't mean I don't see the value in simple, functional, and well-priced pieces for layering. Scroll down to shop the 4 wardrobe basics I wear under winter outfits—all from wallet-friendly Amazon.
1. Thin Turtlenecks
2. Thermal Leggings
3. Cozy Socks
4. Crewneck T-Shirt
I never spend a lot on my basic T-shirts so that I can replace them with the armpits turn yellow or I get a hole in them.
