Thrifted Wardrobe Basics

We've seen a few thrifters say that thrifting is worthwhile as long as you're looking to get big-ticket items for cheap, such as fancy dresses, coats, and shoes. We respectfully disagree! Thrifting for fashion basics is just as worthwhile, as long as you keep and eye out for quality (see our Thrifting Tips for more on that).

Here are a few of our favorite wardrobe basics that we've found. By basics we mean timeless pieces that can be used to put together many different outfits and can be dressed up or down depending on the situation.
