Yep, These Are the 7 Trendy Basics Everyone Will Wear Next Year

Best trendy basics 2022



I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Basics are the backbone of my wardrobe, and I think they’re always a great investment. After all, I wear and rewear them more than anything else in my closet. While I have the core basics in my closet covered, I’ve been leaning more into trendy basics these days—you know, those staples that still feel like building-block pieces but are finished with some directional details.

So what are the best trendy basics to add to your cart as we head into 2022? Looking to the fashion set, there are plenty that fall on the short list, from shearling jackets to relaxed suiting to cool knits, and they all happen to be sitting in our new arrivals from Who What Wear Collection. Ahead, shop the seven trendy basics that are all editor-endorsed and in heavy rotation among the fashion set.

Half-Button Sweaters

Knits seem to get reinvented each season, but half-button silhouettes are the style our editors can't get enough of right now. Slightly preppy yet relaxed, they're the kind of piece you'll want to pair with anything from leather pants to jeans.

Shearling Jackets

I've been talking about my shearling jacket obsession for some time now and can't say enough great things about this take on it. I just ordered the black version of the Billy jacket, so you'll spot me wearing it very soon.

Matching Sets

Fashion people love a great matching set, and each season, we see new takes on them. Right now, you'll want to get your hands on elevated loungewear sets ranging from luxe pleated versions to new sweatsuit proportions.

Leather Trousers

Best trendy basics 2022: leather trousers



A few years back, winter fashion was all about leather pants. Now, wide-cut leather trousers have replaced formfitting styles, and I personally can't get enough of the modern shape.

Relaxed Suiting

Relaxed suiting isn't exactly new, but it's only picking up more steam. Opt for a matching blazer and trousers, or even add in a vest top if you really want to nail the current trends.

Slit Skirts

Best trendy basics 2022: slit skirts



With the rise of "naked" trends over the last year, it should come as no surprise that skin-baring pieces are on the rise. Even if you're wearing a midi-length skirt, you'll find slit details in many of the styles on the market for 2022.

Satin Separates

Separates are getting a cool, polished upgrade with sleek satin fabrics. Consider this the easy, grown-up way to wear basics in 2022.
