Style is a natural evolution, so it's no surprise we tend to notice that certain age groups dress differently than others. For instance, what do Bella Hadid, Sofia Richie, and Zendaya all have in common? Aside from all being some of the chicest celebs in their early 20s, they all have a trendier sense of style than some of the other celebs we talk about here, and they all gravitate toward the same items.
We did a little digging and came to the conclusion that there are five main wardrobe basics to own in your 20s if you're a fan of the following celebrity looks. We're calling these somewhat random basics because they're all a tad more specific—a knit tank rather than a plain one, a cropped sweatshirt rather than a full-length one… Curious to know which other basics are filling the closets of these 20-something A-listers?

Who What Wear editors and celebs alike adore this simple wardrobe basic. It's a fan favorite for its minimal design that still feels a bit special.

Cropped Crewneck Sweatshirts
While sweatshirts can often feel sloppy way too easily, these celebs know that a cropped fit is the perfect detail to make the cozy basic still look undeniably stylish.

Whether dressed up for an event or down with jeans and a plain tee, no outfit is complete without a pair of chunky gold hoops if you asking one of these celebs.

Ever notice how celebs in their 20s wear more heeled shoes than flat ones? Oxfords tend to be the exception here since they're still on the trendier end of the flat-shoe spectrum. Celebs like Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid especially adore comfortable Dr. Martens versions.
