Basic Clothing for Women

It’s plain and simple. Stock up on basic clothing for women. We’ve curated a collection of closet staples from top brands. Invest in quality pieces you can mix and match with other items in your wardrobe. Read on to check out which key pieces to build your wardrobe around.

When curating the perfect closet, you should focus on adding basic, versatile items that speak to your style. A good place to start? With the tops. T-shirts and tank tops are two keys styles every woman should own. You can switch things up with various necklines and sleeve options. Start with neutrals and sprinkle in your favorite colors for a well-rounded selection. A button-up shirt is another standout staple. From denim to woven to cotton, there are plenty of materials to choose from. A button-up in a solid color is classic while one featuring a subtle print is a nice easy-to-wear option.

Ready to get to the bottoms? Pants are great year-round options. From relaxed cargos to sleek slacks, stock up on your favorites. In warmer weather, make sure you have a few capris, shorts and skirts to keep in rotation, too. Looking for the perfect one piece? A laid-back dress is a basic every woman should own. Find the perfect pick you can easily throw on to run errands, wear to work or dress up for a night on the town. Bonus points for finding an option that’s versatile enough to work for all three occasions.

Interested in building a workout wardrobe? Fun prints and bright colors may be tempting, and should definitely be explored, but starting your collection with basic activewear is a smart move. Stock up on leggings, performance tops, jackets, shorts and more. It’s time to go back to basics. Shop for basic clothing for women, including plus size and petite options, at Macy’s.
