These 10 Under-$40 Basics Have So Much Replay Value—Here's the Evidence

Here at Who What Wear, we're pretty much experts when it comes to finding the best basics. Whether you're working with limitless funds or are on the opposite side of the spectrum and have a strict budget, we know exactly where to shop to find staples of every variety. This time, we're delving into cost-friendly pieces that also happen to be extremely versatile—the biggest win-win situation if you ask me. These are more than plain pieces simply meant to be a square one for more fashionably complex looks. The basics I'm showcasing offer up a little more punch. They're good to go on their own or work as a starting point to let your styling imagination run wild. If you've been watching your monthly spending as I have, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Everything below will only set you back about $40 or less. As you prep your summer wardrobe, all the pieces here, especially the breezy summer dresses and matching shorts sets, are solid contenders to build out an easy curated wardrobe.

Tired of your sweatsuits yet? Since we're still wearing ours on repeat, meet the summer version: the lounge shorts set. Of course, you don't have to just wear these with sneakers—style them with boots or strappy sandals for an elevated twist.

It's time to give your basic tank top a rest and embrace its snazzier one-shoulder relative. It still has all of the layering power of a regular tank but offers up a little more pizazz when worn by itself.

Although there are a lot of summer dress trends floating in the fashion sphere right now, the voluminous minidress may be the one to embrace if you're into easy, no-brainer styling. Pro-tip: The shorter length allows it to be worn as a tunic when temperatures start to drop. Our style suggestion? A pair of bright party pants.

When you need something a little more substantial than a T-shirt, try a lightweight knit. It's a little more polished, but the biggest relief is that you don't have to stress as much about finding the right bra. This one from Who What Wear's summer collection features a trendy ruffle sleeve that feels more intentional.

I know, I know—Bermuda shorts aren't for everyone, but as a professed shorts hater myself, these are leagues above what you're used to. The voluminous shape and longer length are flattering on a diverse range of body types, and they definitely feel more grown-up than a pair of denim cutoffs.

It's the season of the matching set, and let us celebrate by bringing you one of the cutest we've come across thus far. To get more use of it, style the pieces as separates.

On the subject of trendy basics, we're very much into this blouse. With a smocked pouf sleeve, it's a little more eye-catching than a plain white tee. Layer it underneath a vest or wear it with shorts, and you have an elevated summer look.

The grandpa cardigan reigned as an It staple beloved by fashion people, so it makes sense that its sleeveless counterpart would also make the rounds. It's a nice reprieve when you're tired of traditional T-shirts or skimpy tops yet still want to look extremely put-together. 

Without fail, by the end of summer, my midi dresses are, by far, my most-worn items. Even as a fashion editor, I appreciate when an outfit basically styles itself, and in this case, all you need are a few simple accessories (I advocate for hoops) and a cool pair of sneakers or sandals.

Nope, high-waisted pants aren't going anywhere, and we can't stop wearing this cropped paperbag version that feels super sophisticated.

When It Comes to Jewelry, I Keep it Simple: 30 Gold Pieces I Approve Of

I'm all for incorporating colorful jewelry into my looks here and there, but the jewelry that I wear on a daily basis (and sometimes to sleep) is my collection of gold pieces. What can I say? I'm a simple girl. Okay, not really, but I can be when it comes to jewelry. Instead of doing a full-on Y2K-inspired jewelry party, I like to stick to my everyday jewelry and mix the more kitschy pieces in to create a balance of aesthetics. It's taken me some time to collect my everyday pieces, but it's been worth it because I've kept (and worn) many pieces for years and don't plan on getting rid of them anytime soon. 

If you're someone who wants to upgrade their everyday jewelry game, look no further. And remember, simple gold jewelry doesn't have to be boring, so fret not because the selection I've gathered today is versatile but features unique and playful silhouettes. Whether you're on a budget or are looking to invest in pieces for the long haul, keep scrolling to see the best gold jewelry on the market right now.

I own the ring version of these, and it's safe to say the only time I'm not wearing it is if I'm sleeping or in the shower.

A crowd favorite for obvious reasons. 

Pearls will forever look classy.

Nothing like a simple pair of large hoops to spice up an everyday 'fit.

Chainlinks don't have to be just for bracelets.

If an average hoop isn't your jam, opt for a more unique shape.

Like this one, too.

The flower just adds a little something, don't you think?

Chunky and gold, just how I like it.

A trip to Paris, anyone?


If you wear a lot of black, this is perfect for you.

The most perfect little set.

This is very similar to my engagement ring, I preferred a dainty ring so I can mix it with other jewelry easily.

Just gorgeous.

An excellent layering situation.

Many sellers are turning vintage designer buttons and pins into jewelry, and I'm 100% here for it. It's the perfect way to get a designer item but at a less expensive price point.

Chic and Unique

You can't go wrong with a chunky chain.

The perfect combo of modern and old.

Summer is coming.

Mateo is highly known for its luxurious items. This is definitely something you'll hold onto forever.

Minimal perfection.

Can you tell I have a thing for pearls? They just pair with gold so well and take an otherwise minimal bracelet just up a tiny level.

Not your middle school charm bracelet.

This is a statement piece for sure.

I know the entire bracelet isn't gold, but you have to admit it's chic.

Anklets are the wave this summer.

If you're feeling a little risky.

This can also double as a mask chain.
