It's an Editor Thing—20 Items I Know You'll Never Regret Buying

I have been an editor at Who What Wear for seven years now and have learned a ton during my time here. While there are many seasoned tricks I now have up my sleeve due to my experience thus far, there is one skill I am particularly proud of, and that is knowing what pieces to buy for a lasting and relevant wardrobe.

Call the aforementioned category basics if you must, but if the past couple of years have taught me anything, it's that basics aren't boring, they are a way of life. They are the lifeblood of a sturdy wardrobe, and below, I have selected 10 relevant yet timeless pieces I know you'll never regret buying. Featuring black ankle boots, perfect carryalls, and even some party-ready pieces, a wardrobe filed with any of the below is a good one; trust me.
