Metallics! Rosettes! No pants! There's no doubt we editors love a fresh and exciting trend to get our sartorial juices flowing, but equally as important in our wardrobes (if not more) are the reliable basics that we lean on time and again that ground our looks. These are the bread and butter of our wardrobes that we turn to daily, and they serve as the perfect backdrop to style with statement pieces.

So today, I asked a handful of our editors to share the trusty and affordable staples that they wear all the time that cost under $100. From everyday jeans to the perfect white tank tops, keep scrolling for plenty of inspiration from your friends who shop, write about, and are immersed in all things fashion day in and day out.
