The older I get, the more value I see in investing in classic wardrobe pieces that can evolve with me. Long gone are the days of buying the ultimate trendy look that will inevitably go out of style after a few wears; instead, I’ve started looking for pieces that can do double or triple duty in my wardrobe. These fundamental options are the building blocks of sustainable style, and when they’re well made, they’re super comfortable. Enter Amazon. Don’t look any further, check out these 39 stylish basics that are so comfortable you’ll wear the sh*t out of them.

On this list, I added closet staples that never go out of style and keep you feeling confident all day long. For example, you’ll find the ultimate plain white tee, because let’s be honest, your current t-shirt collection could probably use a refresh. I also included thong underwear that feels (and looks) invisible, because comfort begins with your undergarments. From slip-on shoes to a stretchy LBD, these are the pieces that you can repurpose and will last you for years.

Additionally, you’ll find a few good trends that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. From a striped sheath dress to a neutral-colored jumpsuit, these looks can be transformed for work, play, or vacation by simply adding a jacket, swapping sneakers for heels, or bring on the bold jewelry. Get more bang for your buck by purchasing items that can be taken from day to night and back again.

When clothing fits well and looks good, you feel more confident — which means you’re more likely to actually wear it. So toss anything in your closet that doesn’t make you feel like your best self, and sub in these fashionable basics that are cozy and versatile.
