Where would we be without our trusty sartorial staples? They ground our outfits, they’re the building blocks of our wardrobes, and quite frankly, they’re hardest-working items we own. And for this reason, we like to talk a lot about the best basics to invest in here on Who What Wear. We have our go-to brands and retailers we love to shop for great basics (Everlane, Vince, H&M, etc.). Amazon also happens to be high on our list for affordable everyday essentials! Music to our ears. Below we’re highlighting some of the absolute best Amazon basics we guarantee you’ll wear for the rest of your life! From the best white tees to nude lace bras and black leggings, you won’t regret buying these 11 timeless basics.
