New Classics: 31 Fresh Basics That Just Might Replace My Old Ones

new classic wardrobe staples



Do you ever start shopping and realize that you don't just want one or two items and suddenly crave an entire wardrobe overhaul? Because same. Recently, I've come across so many strong pieces in the market that I started envisioning a whole new wardrobe with these chic updates. While trendier picks are usually what I'm excited to jump on, it's the more classic wardrobe basics that have really caught my eye lately, and they are making me consider replacing those staple pieces in my own closet.

These aren't just your plain tanks and jeans. No, the items I'm about to showcase here each have something special about them that sets them apart from the basics you've seen time and again. Think perfectly lived-in '90s-fit denim, Instagram-worthy Balenciaga mules, and repeatable trousers. I'm fully obsessed with these cool finds, and I think you will be too. Scroll down to shop all my favorite new classics.

I've seen a lot of trousers, and these come pretty close to perfection.
