I love investing in fun jackets and coats, but I really can’t be bothered to switch up the pieces I wear underneath them. I’ve accumulated a core basics collection that has proven time and time again to work with every single thing in my closet. If it ain’t broke, why fix it? I keep my tees, sweaters, and jeans very simple and instead spend my money on quality outerwear.
Below, I’ve rounded up the four basics that I swear by for fall and winter. I wear them with everything from shearling jackets in Sweden, satin blazers in L.A., and double-breasted coats in Italy. (Yes, I had to use photos from different cities because it’s still sweltering out in L.A. in early November). Scroll down to see and shop my favorite basics to wear under jackets and coats.
