Building out a wardrobe is much the same as building a house – you’ve gotta’ lay a solid foundation if you want it to serve its actual purpose. But with that being said, finding the best wardrobe basics is absolutely not easy. How many white t-shirts must a girl buy before she discovers the one? If you said about a million, you’d pretty much be correct. Pieces like t-shirts that wear well and singlets that actually keep their shape are the unicorns of fashion land – elusive, mystical, and probably only exist in our dreams. That is, until now.
In the name of good journalism, we’ve done the legwork and found a trusted edit of wardrobe basics you can rely on. Ones that won’t tear in the wash, stretch, or look like a rag two weeks in.
A final word of advice from us? Buy more than one. Ain’t nothing sadder than a discontinued wardrobe hero.
