I Didn't Think I Needed New Clothes, But Then I Saw These New Basics

After shopping during the holiday season, I wanted to put a pause on buying new clothes for a bit. But after doing market research for a few upcoming stories, there were a few basics I discovered that I thought could be worth considering. The items in question all skew on the affordable side (under $75) and fall in the trend-forward-basics category, so they’re elevated yet still highly versatile.

The specific pieces I’m considering include this H&M coat and these Zara trousers. I also thought you might be interested in some fresh next-level basics, so I pulled together a list of 29 other new basics that might pique your interest.

This blouse is flawless with its relaxed fit and longer sleeves.

These trousers would definitely be considered a next-level basic in that they're elevated but could be styled with many different pieces.

The perfect white tee if you want a perfectly tucked-in look.

Talk about a sharp blazer.

Cable-knit sweaters continue to be a go-to among the fashion crowd.

This is one of the key denim silhouettes of the moment.

Miniskirts are reigning supreme.

A two-in-one piece for under $40? Excellent.

So into this longline style.

This bodysuit is basically famous.

Just in case you love a muscle-tee situation.

You can wear these jeans with so many outfits.

Wear on its own or for layering.
