One more time for the people in the back: You don't actually have to spend a lot on your outfits to achieve one that looks expensive. I, for one, am perpetually on a budget, so I'm always on the lookout for these "special" closet staples that will make the most impact in my wardrobe, and today, I've got just the things in store. I tend to peruse Amazon's fashion section several times a week, so on my last visit to the retailer's vast offering, I spotted a handful of items (29 to be exact) that look so much more elevated than their affordable price tags would suggest.

There are several reasons why the below items caught my eye. For the simple knits I'm highlighting here, it's the neutral colors like beige and camel that make the staples feel so timeless. On the other hand, trendier items like a leather blazer or chain-link necklace are the kind that can pull any look together in seconds flat, ensuring your overall 'fit feels complete. So whether you're looking to add something new to your closet or are simply curious about what's making my edit, peruse my Amazon picks below.

Half-zip sweaters are trending, and this one looks so easy to wear.

My favorite Levi's jeans now come with a faux-leather coating—you know what to do.

Cool cutouts add such an on-trend element to any basic.

I love when the trendiest item is also the most comfortable, don't you?

Make it a matching set with the accompanying ribbed sweater.

Why spend hundreds on a designer scarf when this one exists?

Style these with a cream sweater (like the one below) for a chic monochromatic moment.

I'd think this was a high-end jacket if I didn't know any better.

The black suede and tonal stitching really elevate these boots.

This is giving me "rich mom in Aspen" energy.

In case you were looking for your next top to wear with jeans.

Make all your winter outfits cooler.

I love the cool shape of this puffer, and apparently, so do Amazon shoppers.

I'm pretty much living in knit sets like this.

Because colored shades are having a moment right now.

I'm such a sucker for a good square neckline.

More comfortable than jeans, more polished than sweats.

Calling it now: Silky button-downs are bound to be one of the trendiest basics in 2022.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Everything looks more elevated in this color.

The easiest (and most affordable) way to get in on the bolero trend.
