There are a few key staples all of us have in our wardrobes. Yes, I'm talking about sneakers, jeans, and tees. I honestly couldn't even imagine my closet without these basics. I wear each of them or a combo multiple times per week. Now, there are a lot of options in these categories out there in the market—including plenty of noteworthy picks that'll suit a range of styles and budgets. Below, we're giving you a curation of our personal favorites to provide you with inspiration if you're looking to add something new to your offering.
If you keep scrolling, you'll find the specific sneakers, jeans, and tees the editors here at Who What Wear have tested and now swear by. As a note, the selects coming your way are deemed go-tos because of their quality, versatility, and overall forward nature. Go on for more.
"I have way too many pairs of sneakers, but the ones I always reach for when I'm going to a workout are these On sneakers. They're ridiculously comfortable, and I swear they make me run faster. Plus, I love that I don't have to tie them because I'm pretty much always running late for classes."
"There are so many different Levi's to choose from, but these new-ish 501 '90s jeans are my current favorites. They're slouchy as opposed to baggy, and they have a bit of a low-rise, which is obviously still very much a trend."
"I'm so impressed by this Madewell tee. It's a little cropped (without showing your belly button), and it comes in so many good colors. The fabric is also really nice, so it has the look and feel of a more expensive tee."
"Thanks to Miss Hadid, I was influenced to buy these It sneakers last summer, and I haven't looked back. They're retro and cool, and I find myself reaching for them whether I'm wearing tailored trousers or leggings."
"I have upwards of 30 pairs of jeans in my closet and have tried even more than that over the years, so when I constantly come back to this Agolde pair, it's because they're really good. The tailored fit just makes every outfit look so polished."
"I'm such a sucker for vintage staples, and Re/Done's tee gets a 10/10 in my book. It's slightly boxy and has that soft worn-in feel and not-quite-white color that I usually only find from digging through a rack at a vintage store."
"No matter how many brand-new sneakers walk into my closet, I always find myself going for these. They're so simple and clean with a silhouette that doesn't draw too much attention but looks polished. Every time someone asks me what sneakers they should get (man or woman because there are iterations for everyone) I tell them about Everlane's Court Sneakers."
"I never knew how good Reformation jeans were until I discovered this pair. Low-rise and super slouchy, they're exactly what I need from my denim collection at this moment. They're also super comfortable and make me feel like I can take on the world."
"You know when there's something in your closet that you always want to 'save' for a special day? It's weird that it's a white T-shirt for me, but I hate when I do a fresh load of laundry and all of my favorite things are back in the hamper on the first day. So I usually end up wearing this white tee underneath my favorite oversize sweater later in the week as a special treat for myself. That's how much I love it."
"Golden Goose sneakers are certainly an investment, but I find them to be one of the most comfortable styles, and I like that they bring a cool, laid-back feel to my everyday looks. And yes, I basically wear them every single day."
"I've been wearing my Hudson jeans on repeat over the last few seasons. The wash is on point, and they feature the perfect amount of distressing."
"Mott & Bow makes amazing quality basics. I live in the Driggs Tee. It's the ideal weight and has the ribbed neckline I look for in crew-neck tees."
"Adidas Samba sneakers were everywhere last year, but I'm doubling down on the shoe style for 2023. This time around, I'm leaning into the black pair, which are currently en route to me."
"I ordered Khaite's Danielle jeans ahead of New York Fashion Week last season, and they have since become the go-to jeans in my closet. These are a favorite of Kendall Jenner that live up to the hype."
"I've been on the hunt for a great basic T-shirt for years and discovered this Uniqlo style through the recommendation of some fashion editors last year. Designed by Christophe Lemaire at Uniqlo's Paris Research and Development Center, this is anything but an ordinary tee—from the cut to the fabric, everything about this $15 shirt feels elevated far beyond its price point."
