30 Affordable Wardrobe Basics To Build Your Closet On A Budget

Basics by price point

I recently shared my entire spring/summer capsule wardrobe in this post. It’s a popular post every season and a lot of fun for me to put together. I select quality basics that last for years, flatter most body shapes and all work together seamlessly. If you are a newsletter subscriber, you also get access to a Lookbook that extracts all the parts from the capsule to create 40 outfits!

Many of you have been asking me for a few more budget-friendly basics to help you build your spring/summer wardrobe. So below I’m breaking out 10 basics in 3 different price points…under $200, under $100, and under $50. That’s 30 pieces you can mix and match! But first, here are some quick tips for shopping and building your wardrobe basics…

Quick Tips You don’t have to buy everything at once. Review your basic wardrobe checklist (which you get when you subscribe to the newsletter) and decide which gaps need to be filled. Find basics with a twist! Sure, a plain white T-shirt will do. But if you find a plain white T-shirt with a nice flutter sleeve, you add an extra detail that makes you look even more stylish. Make sure you know your body shape. Knowing your body shape makes it easier to get dressed every day. Learn how to determine your body shape here.

Now for fun! Keep scrolling to find the base under $200, the base under $100, and the base under $50…

After a decade in TV news, the desire to help women “look beautiful” led to a career switch. I started my own clothing consultancy, styling ‘real’ women for years. In 2014 I changed direction again, using my TV background and styling expertise to launch this website and my YouTube channel. We’re now a community of nearly 700,000 dynamic, vibrant, amazing women over 40… who know age isn’t something to hide from. Life is just beginning for us!!
