My Stylish 58-Year-Old Aunt and I Live in Elevated Basics—Shop Our New Wish List


Reformation; The Reformation Parker Relaxed Shirt ($128)

In case you're new here, my lovely aunt has been my style icon since before I can remember. Despite our age differences and varying style aesthetics, we somehow always agree on one thing—basics. We are firm believers in investing in classic pieces that will serve as the building blocks of your wardrobe which often aren't the most exciting pieces to buy. Today, we're here to bring you our newest wish list filled with basics that believe it or not, are pretty exciting. Well, as far as basics go. 

Ahead, you'll get to shop our curation of 27 elevated basics that are timeless and extremely wearable. Featuring an array of price points and a mix of ready-to-wear and accessories, adding even just a few pieces from this list to your shopping carts will ensure you have one of your most stylish summers yet. 

These are the perfect everyday heels. 

If you're into that "coastal grandmother" vibe. 

These look triple the price.

We love throwing sweaters over our shoulders, even in the summer. 

You'll want to wear this every day.

One pair of Staud shoes is never enough.

Proof comfortable clothes don't have to be ugly. 

Our readers can't stop buying these shoes and neither can we.

You'll be surprised by how much you can actually wear this color. 

Is it bad that we're telling ourselves these are a "basic" shoe? Don't answer that. 

I love wearing a big sweater like this over a swimsuit in the summer. Purely for aesthetics, of course.
