Have you ever wondered how you can get so many amazing statement styles with the most beautiful colors, fabrics and patterns, but something in your wardrobe still feels off? I’ve been dealing with this problem recently, especially on days when I just want to go the simple route. After doing a bit of a closet audit, it became abundantly clear that I was missing a selection of solid basics to serve as the foundation of my wardrobe. While I love a bold, unique statement piece as much as the next fashionista, there’s something about having easy-to-wear, versatile pieces ready to go that just hits the spot. Since badly needing to round out my basics, I headed to H&M, Zara and Mango for these wardrobe essentials.
Not only are these retailers incredibly affordable, but they have uber-stylish, elevated basics like no other. I’m on the hunt for some tops, bottoms, outerwear and simple shoe items to act as the building blocks of my wardrobe. Scroll on to see some of the best basics I came across while hunting online for H&M, Zara and Mango.
