We talk a lot about shopping for basics at Amazon. The e-tailer has plenty of them, from $5 white T-shirts to all the Levi's jeans your heart desires. But today, I'm here to talk about the trendy pieces living among all the basics on Amazon. Some of its in-house fashion brands, such as The Drop, are particularly good at capitalizing on the trends at affordable prices.
I ordered a pair of silky shorts, a cropped halter top, a printed second-skin turtleneck, an oversize button-down, and furry slippers. All are comfortable enough to be suitable for working from home and are polished enough for venturing out into the world (save for the furry slippers). Since it's sometimes hard to know what your Amazon clothing purchases will look like IRL, I tried them on for you. Keep scrolling for the photographic evidence of how cute these pieces are and to shop them for yourself in many colors.
The Drop Greta Top & Eva Shorts
The quality of this top is so good. I can definitely see myself wearing it with high-waisted jeans and an oversize blazer. Buy it in multiple colors if your size is in stock—it's the best Amazon piece I've ever tried. I also love these shorts. They're more elevated than sweatshorts but are equally as comfortable. The length is perfect (for reference, I'm 5'4"), and they're machine washable.
Goodthreads Washed Cotton Boyfriend Tunic
This shirt could certainly pass as a basic, but I found that the oversize fit and pink accents contribute to its trendiness as well. The fit of this shirt is pretty much perfect, and it's nice and lightweight—ideal for summer. (Pro tip: Try it as a swimsuit cover-up.)
The Drop Marina Faux Fur Cottage Slippers
Winter may have come and gone, but I'm still living the house-shoe life. These are so cozy and soft, and the open-toe style allows your feet to get some air. I advise sizing down in these.
The Drop Phoebe Turtleneck
Second-skin tops may have risen to fame this past fall and winter, but you can still wear them well into spring, especially this pretty watercolor one. The turtleneck is fitted without being extremely tight, and the material is quite soft. I love this as a layering piece under a light jacket or blazer.
