Finding good basics to build up your closet can be tough. While supporting local businesses is fantastic, it's not always the most affordable option for everyone.
Amazon has its own clothing line called Amazon Essentials with lots of great staples like tees, shirts, and dresses. Their items don't stray far from the $20 range, so they're great if you want nice clothing on a budget. They come in a bunch of colours and sizes, too.
We rounded up 32 items that caught our eye.
