Basics could easily be considered the backbones of a wardrobe. It’s these simple pieces that are highly versatile and more or less act as the building blocks to help balance out the perfect outfit. We routinely share with you some of the key basics fashion people rely on. And today, we thought we’d focus on those spring basics that pair flawlessly with any pair of jeans you own.

With all that in mind, keep scrolling to check out the knits, shirts, and more that work well with skinny jeans, straight-leg cuts, and wide-leg silhouettes. Oh, there’s also a range of visual and shopping inspiration as well.
