If you’re looking for a few new outfit formulas to mix into your rotation, you’ve landed in the perfect spot. Below, I’m sharing a range of stylish ensembles to consider. While each look is unique in its own right, there is a common thread to note: Yep, each outfit features a trendy basic

Given that basics act as the foundational elements in a solid look, it probably doesn’t come as much of a shock that some of my favorite recent outfit ideas start with next-level basics. For reference, the basics in question fall in that “trendy” category because they’re highly versatile like a tried-and-true basic, but also have a forward element to make them especially modern.

Keep scrolling to check out 2023 outfit ideas that feature a trendy basic as the hero piece.

A striped sweater is a go-to basic for many. As the fashion crowd embraced in 2022 and will continue this year, it’s the relaxed styles that will be the hero piece in many standout looks.
