When she’s not working with big names like Lupita Nyong’o, Constance Wu, and Diane Kruger or writing a best-selling book, celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger divulges her fashion expertise in our Ask a Stylist column. From the best places to source vintage to the secret to finding your most flattering jeans, come back each week for a professional’s perspective.

Over the past year, I've shared a handful of my Amazon shopping secrets, like the skinny jeans I buy on Prime, all the winter items you can purchase on Amazon, and the top trends you can find under $100. Today I'm adding to the list and focusing on the three categories I shop when updating my wardrobe basics, specifically the clothing items you should add to your next Amazon Prime delivery. Shop the best basics available on the world's largest shopping destination below.

Value Packs 

I always suggest taking advantage of the value packs offered on Amazon, particularly when bulking up on essentials like tanks, T-shirts, and socks. It never hurts to have a backup white tee or clean socks when you're behind on laundry day. Shop the value packs on my Amazon shopping list below.

Workout Essentials 

I always look to Amazon to freshen up my workout pieces and start with staple athleticwear brands like Nike and Adidas. Shop the fitness gear that's currently in my shopping cart below.


I also look to brands like Nike and Adidas on Amazon when I'm in need of new sneakers. Most times, you can find prices lower than on typical footwear sites and have the kicks delivered to you in a speedy manner. Shop the sneakers I'd buy below.
