I Just Discovered These Affordable Yet Expensive-Looking Basics, And I’m Hooked

As much as flashy, trendy items are quick to grab my attention, it’s the basics that do the actual heavy-lifting in my closet. Last summer my daily uniform consisted of mostly simple white tank-tops and easy oversized button-downs, so in that same vein, I’m putting all the focus on basics again for my cool-weather wardrobe. I’ve waded through my fair share of pricey, luxurious versions to basics on the penny-pinching cheap end, but isn’t it rewarding when you can find a happy medium?  Enter Who What Wear’s latest fall offering at Target. Of course, there are trend-forward pieces included like faux-leather dresses and matching sets, but the collection is also a jackpot for streamlined basics that only look expensive. Priced at under $40, they’re on the more affordable side, but at the same time won’t disintegrate after one wash cycle—so yes, that means I’m stocking up on all the sweaters and blazers right now. Below, I’ve rounded up my favorite luxe-looking (and affordable) essentials to keep your assortment of fall basics fresh. Keep scrolling to see them all.

A houndstooth coat is a non-negotiable for me during fall. This one strays the line between a light jacket and a blazer so it’s really like a 2-in-1.

Add the matching skirt for a power combo.

Doesn’t this look incredibly soft?

Take a styling cue from above and pair this with your favorite leather piece.

I never considered myself a hoodie person—until I moved to L.A.

You better believe I’m buying these to complete the set.

This would make an ideal errand-running ‘fit.

Side buttons transform these from basic sweatpants to cool sweatpants.

Although it’s a floral print, the easiness qualifies this as a basic (according to me).

This is definitely a lewk.

Fall to me is all about midi dresses, and I certainly want to wear this on repeat.

Wear this with straight-leg jeans and casual canvas sneakers.

This is calling for a pair of tall boots.

Basics with a twist.

I’ve never seen a sweatshirt like this, so call me intrigued.

Can’t say no to color-block.

These look way more than $37.

The details are unique, yet timeless.

Truly the ideal top.

As soon as a cold front hits, I’ll be ready wrapped up in this.

Near the definition of expensive-looking is this sweater.
