The "Boring" Fashion Items You Need From Urban Outfitters

Best wardrobe basics at Urban Outfitters


The Style Stalker

While a closet full of statement pieces sounds great in theory, it really only serves a strong purpose if you have more basic pieces to pair them with. Head to retailers like Opening Ceremony or Nordstrom's Space for some of the most original pieces on the market, but for the more "boring" items (i.e., wardrobe basics), we suggest you head to Urban Outfitters.

Ahead, we've shopped out the categories of must-have wardrobe basics that you should be shopping at the affordable retailer. To be clear, "boring" doesn't actually mean boring. It just means they might not be the showstoppers in your closet, and that's okay. These are the bread-and-butter items that will make your closet well rounded, no matter what the season. And since we love saving money as much as you do, most of these pieces are under $100 to prove that stocking up on the classics is not only necessary, but manageable.
