When I shop, I shop for trends. It takes my socks starting to pill and my white T-shirts no longer being white for me to motivate me to re-up my wardrobe basics—and I do so begrudgingly at that. Then, and only then, will I actually do the responsible thing and make these fashion purchases that are less than thrilling but definitely seem like the right thing to do.
Usually, this is my relationship to basics. But as soon as we turned a corner into spring 2020, something interesting started to happen. All of a sudden, these non-exciting (okay, downright boring) pieces started to seem as cool and exciting as any newer trend on the market. Maybe it’s a larger shift in the fashion world towards shopping for longevity or maybe it’s simply that designers are putting some seriously fresh spins on these tried-and-true pieces, but there’s no denying that something’s afoot. You know it’s real when this admittedly trend-minded editor has a shopping list chock full of these new clothing basics instead of their more out-there counterparts.
In any case, basics are having a moment and I’m so here for it. To see each of the seven pieces on my spring shopping list—and maybe even add them to your cart, too—just keep scrolling.
