19 Super-Basics Celebs Always Wear

Red carpet season is full of wow moments, but there's very little that can translate from the spotlight and into one's regular, day-to-day wardrobe. We can all appreciate and dream of a frothy tulle gown worn with treasure chest's worth of diamonds, but it's fairly unlikely we'll replicate the vibe for an 8:30 a.m. client meeting at Pret a Manger. So whilst much of the world's focus is on Lady Gaga and her glamorous evening attire right now, we're shifting the focus slightly to analyse A-listers and their off-duty attire.

January is a time to rethink the structure of your wardrobe rather than going wild in the aisles, stocking up on all of the things you definitely don't need in a bid for feeling new and revitalised. Instead, we're urging you to consider the staples that are missing from your closet—imagine it as the prep work behind looking sophisticated for the rest of the year. We're talking about the silent heroes that make getting dressed a thousand times easier and last far longer than a flash-in-the-pan trend. The clever jackets that work with countless outfits; the smart shoes that never fail you; the feel-good denim pieces that don't date. See the elevated basics celebrities love to rely upon below, and you'll be pleasantly surprised by how many of them you probably own already.
