Back to Basics: Shop These Vintage Basics

Vintage Basics

If you're a fan of basics, you need a wardrobe that's full of staples you can wear often. Just because everyone else is shopping for a popular fad means you have to buy, too. The idea is to invest in a vintage fashion that never fails you and will look perfect with trendier items.

Let's understand more about it below! 

What Do We Mean by “Basics”?

When it comes to fashion, there are a lot of trends that come and go. But, you don't need to fall for it! Instead, go for the basics. Timeless and will never go out of style, basics are the foundation for any wardrobe. These are the staple pieces in your closet, which will be your go-to items year after year. They can be mixed and matched easily to tailor or create different outfits that are always fresh and interesting.

When we talk about staple wardrobe pieces, these are normally vintage or designer clothes that are long-lasting. For example, a t-shirt or dress. If the item gets worn down, you can resell it or take it to the dry cleaners to maintain its quality.

What Types of Basics Are Considered Staple Wardrobe Pieces?

Staples should be versatile enough that you can use them in multiple situations. No matter how you wear them, they have the “wow” factor and satisfy your desire for an Instagram-worthy look!

Staple pieces included the following.


Here are the staple types of clothing:

  • White T-shirts: They work well with any item in your closet. You could even call it the LBD of T-shirts!

  • Black T-shirts: They’re versatile and match almost anything.

  • The ultimate pair of jeans or pants: They won’t ever go out of style and can be worn with anything.

  • Staple pair of heels: Basic heels can match any outfit and make you feel like royalty walking down the street.

  • Staple warm coat: It matches a variety of outfits and is versatile enough to wear for years.


A fun way to spice up your wardrobe, prints are a great addition to any outfit. Versatile prints include:

  • Leopard print: You can wear this print with anything, especially white, black, or neutral.

  • Designer prints: Classic and sophisticated, they give you a look that's sure to turn heads.


Textures can add interest to your look and create a unique style statement. For example:

  • Fur: It's the perfect way to add a touch of luxury and warmth to any outfit.

  • Silk: This material is also versatile and can be used in formal and casual outfits.
