How Celebs Style the Basics We All Own

We consider basics to be those wardrobe essentials you really couldn’t live without. You know, classic white tops, timeless denim silhouettes, and the like. While we all probably style our favorite staples in a variety of ways (come on—you know you have a go-to white T-shirt), celebrities actually have a range of styling ideas to make any of those basics feel, well, not so basic.

With that, we’re showcasing how A-listers like Priyanka Chopra, Karlie Kloss, and Alessandra Ambrosio make the pieces we all have in our closets feel more “fashion.” In other words, we're diving into what statement items they pair with basics to keep their vibes forward and unique. Keep scrolling for outfit ideas, and shop new basics as well if you’re looking to stock up again.

If you live in leggings on the weekend, skip the hoodie and try a chunky turtleneck instead with a peacoat and of-the-moment combat boots.
