I Was Bored, so I Made a List of the Best Fall Basics With a Little Twist

Basics are important and quite necessary to one's wardrobe, but as someone who has been sitting in sweatpants and hoodies day after day for the past 6 months, I have been itching for something a little more exciting. While doing my usual online shopping (both for work and personally) I have noticed that there is a new trend wave in town and it's all about basic pieces with a little twist. We're talking warped necklines, exaggerated collars, cool cutouts, and more. 

This is definitely one of those market trends that is hard to explain, but once you scroll through the 28 basics with a twist below, you'll know exactly what I mean. Including everything from shoes to outerwear, consider these fall finds crucial to jazzing up your seasonal wardrobe with minimal effort. 

Asymmetrical necklines are the easiest way to jazz up a simple long-sleeve tee and jeans look. 

If you're already a fan of classic Birkenstocks, this shearling-lined pair is a must-have. 

Swap your basic puffers for a faux leather version. 

Looks like a polo shirt, shacket, and cardigan all in one.

These days, it's all about the shoulder pads. 

Not your average sweater dress, I'll tell you that.

Spice up your life with a cardigan bra set. 

Shearling jackets don't always have to come in neutral tones. 

This is quite literally a basic sweater vest with a twist.
