I know we inundate you on the reg with all things wardrobe basics, but can you really blame us when the pieces just keep getting better? If you’ve also noticed the rise in trendy basics, you know what we’re talking about. While perennial classic pieces will always have a spot in our closets, it’s more unique details on these staples—think cutouts and open backs—that are capturing our attention the most right now. These pieces technically qualify as basics because of their easy, versatile nature but they all have a little extra flavor to them—a sprinkle of spice if you will.
From cutouts to asymmetric necklines and waist floss, the more risqué trends of the moment have officially made their way into the basics section. Ahead, we’re highlighting 30 examples that tap into some of these trends but do it on some of the easiest-to-wear silhouettes like tanks and bodysuits. Peruse our edit to find the wardrobe refresh you were looking for.
