The best wardrobes are built out of basics. If your closet is well stocked with basics then it can be super simple to mix and match items (or add items) to make your perfect outfit. But not all basics are created equal! If you’re after high-quality basics at affordable prices, then look no further. Here’s a list of all the best cheap clothing brands you need to know for buying all the basic clothing items.
Of course, online giant ASOS is on the list of cheap clothing brands. You can literally find anything you need on here, so if you’re stumped for where to find an item, ASOS is a safe bet. They also offer cheap multipacks of basic items like short sleeved t-shirts, bodysuits and even underwear. If you’re someone who likes to buy the same item in lots of different colours, then definitely have a browse through the ASOS basics category.
In my opinion, Topshop is one of the best cheap clothing brands to buy cheap yet durable denim pieces. Their jeans range is fantastic — they carry the most diverse shapes and styles. Plus, Topshop is one of the best brands for finding petite sizes. Their mom jeans and skinny jeans are must have basics for every closet.
Monki is one of the best places to hunt for cheap basics. Their collections are usually super trendy and change often, but you can always count on them to stock some of the cutest and softest basics around. I am obsessed with their super-soft tees and would buy them in all colours if I could. Also check them out for jeans, socks and underwear.
Na-kd is a great place to hunt for dressier basics, like trousers and blazers. Na-kd is similar to ASOS in that it houses different brands, so you won’t have to scour the internet to look for different options. Bonus: they have super cute affordable bikinis as well!
Pull and Bear is the best place to go for basic tops. Whether you’re after the perfect blouse, a crisp button down or delicate camisoles, they have a huge selection that changes often. During Autumn and Winter they also have a great selection of basic tailored trousers that are super comfy and last forever.
Brandy Melville is an absolute treasure trove of basics for warmer days, or for anyone who wants to achieve a Cali-girl vibe. They have tons of tank tops and cropped tops in a variety of styles and colours. They might be a little pricier than say, H&M, but once you feel how soft and cosy all their stuff is, you won’t mind paying that teeny bit extra.
If you’re into minimalist, Scandi style, then Weekday is the store for you. They offer a range of high-quality basics in tons of different colours. What sets them apart is the more androgynous, boxy fits to their clothing. Whether you’re looking for the perfect sweatshirt or the perfect long coat, you’ll find it here.
Uniqlo is a one-stop-shop for literally ALL your basic needs. You’ll be able to find underwear, pyjamas, dresses, jeans and t-shirts in all colours. Uniqlo is super affordable but offers clothing at a much higher quality than other brands in the same price bracket, so it is definitely one of the best brands out there for buying basics! Top tip: shop here for winter gear! They make the best thermals and ultralight down jackets out there.
Let’s not forget shoes. & Other Stories is a great place to find everyday shoes in classic styles and neutral colours. Their shoes are super high quality, yet are far cheaper than designer brands. The sleek designs also make some timeless basics that will truly last in your wardrobe.
If you want fuss free basics shopping, head to Muji. With everything neatly organised by colour and category, finding what you need in Muji will be an absolute breeze. Shop here for basics like socks, t-shirts and cardigans. You’ll also find canvas trainers, tote bags and even homeware!
