Did you know I love basics? It's true—I live in them. Jeans, T-shirts, simple (but amazing shoes), and classic outerwear not only make up the majority of my wardrobe but make up the bulk of my outfits both for day and night.
Do you know what else I love? Making shopping for things I know our readers want exponentially easier than it already is. Because while perusing through countless websites and pages of products is pretty much my job (actually it is literally my job), I know that not everyone has the time. So much like I do every week with my roundup of the best new arrivals, today I'm bringing you all the best basics from some of my favorite sites, all in one place.
From the aforementioned pieces to skirts, tops, totes and more, there are so many amazing essentials on Shopbop, Nordstrom, and Net-a-Porter at the moment that I actually had trouble narrowing my favorites down to just 42. But I did, so to shop my top picks from each site, simply scroll down—and thank me later.
