The Absolute Best Capsule Wardrobe Staples to Buy on Amazon

Dotdash Meredith and Yahoo Inc. may earn commission or revenue on some items through the links below.

Zillions of reviewers can't be wrong. Here's the top blazer, jeans, white tee and more classic items to buy on Amazon right now

By now, the concept of the "capsule wardrobe" is a familiar one: You edit your closet way down and donate or recycle everything you no longer wear or that only serves one very specific purpose. Then you replenish the racks with fewer, very intentional items that are meant to last and work well with everything else you own. What that looks like in practice: Simple pieces in classic, flattering silhouettes that aren't likely to go out of style anytime soon, and picking neutral colors that can be mixed and matched into different outfits easily.

If you're thinking about starting your own capsule wardrobe — or even if you just need some good basics and want to start in the easiest possible place — we rounded up our favorite finds on Amazon, backed by tons of positive reviews (and in some cases, celebrity fans). Buy one piece or stock up on them all; at $70 and under for every item, this is a no regret, versatile investment you'll be happy you made.

The White Tee

The quest for the perfect white T-shirt can feel almost Herculean at times. Does one exist that's lightweight but not transparent, fitted but flattering, and doesn't cost a fortune? According to hundreds of Amazon reviewers, this Madewell tee might check all the boxes. For under $20, this delivers softness, comfort and quality that many reviewers claim holds up after washing.

The Black Blazer

Initially an office staple, blazers are having a fashion moment, whether worn with crop tops and jeans, as part of an oversized suit set or just adding a little polish to a comfortable travel outfit. We (and hundreds of other shoppers) like this slightly roomy cut for being able to do all that and more, at a great price.

The Classic Jeans

Top models including Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber love Levi's "wedgie" jeans for their surprisingly flattering fit (despite the name) and they've caught on with tons more people since being popularized in paparazzi shots. Reviewers love them for their butt-flattering cut and for holding their shape after many wears.

The Gold Hoops

More than 45,000 Amazon shoppers have reviewed these hoops and left them with a glowing 4.5-star rating — and at prices as low as $13.95 (for 20MM gold-plated) or $36.95 (for vermeil) you can nab the versatile, well-loved earrings that come in four sizes and earn wearers "countless compliments" without breaking the bank.

The White Sneakers

Everyone has a favorite pair of white sneakers, so you might as well pick one that's royally approved: the Superga sneakers favored by Kate Middleton. She's often seen pairing them her sportier looks, and even people without access to a tiara collection call them "objectively awesome," with high marks for comfort and wearability.

The Striped Sweater

Cupshe's swimsuits and casual dresses are staples in the closet of many a Bachelor Nation member, and people are equally as enthusiastic about their fall offerings, including this sweet slouchy striped number. "99.99% of the time Cupshe is on point. This is no exception," one reviewer wrote of the lightweight, layer-able piece with dropped shoulders that add some visual interest.

The Black Leggings

Spanx have mastered the mix of cute (the compression fabric that flatters everyone) and comfortable (they're black leggings — need we say more)? Celebs including Jennifer Garner and Jenna Dewan have been seen in Spanx's athleisure, and you'll join the chorus of happy reviewers who like the opaque fabric that can be "dressed up or down." (One note: We wouldn't work out in this pair — it's strictly for your capsule wardrobe only.)

The Perfect Sunglasses

While there is no one style of sunglasses that works on every face, this style is pretty darn close: A rounded frame with a slight cat-eye, in a dark tortoise that looks good with most skin tones and hair colors. More than 1,600 Amazon reviewers have given these a 4.5-star rating for being durable, lightweight and a great price.

The Nude Flats

Ballet flats are back in for fall (were they ever really out?) and stylists and celebs alike love a "nude" version for the way it visually lengthens your leg (and goes with pretty much everything). Since no two nudes are alike, we like these under-$20 pairs that come in multiple shades and styles — and so do more than 1,000 reviewers who have given them high marks.

The Claw Clip

Another accessory that gives trendy '90s vibes and yet is totally timeless: The humble claw clip, which can polish up an outfit or simply keep your hair out of your face while hunkered down at home. So many celebs love Kitsch, and we're guessing some of them might be among the 400 reviewers raving about this two-pack (made of recycled plastic!) for its powers over long, thick and curly hair. "This clip captures it all!" one wrote.

The Cropped Jacket

For days when you want to brave the elements without looking like a snowman yourself, this cute cropped parka does it all (and is Amazon climate-pledge friendly, and comes in sizes up to 6X, and is under $80). Reviewers praise it for being lightweight and superwarm.
