When shopping on Amazon, there are a lot of items that can make their way into your cart: a new printer, some feel-good jeans and even beauty items for when you don’t want to go to your nearest drugstore.
But, something we always have on our radar is clothing. Not just any clothing, either — affordable, versatile pieces for men and women that will soon become some of your most-worn items.
One brand we need to turn you on to is Amazon Essentials. We know what you’re thinking, doesn’t Amazon sell everything under its namesake brand? Well, yes, but you’d be surprised at its flattering, well-varied fashion selections we have on our radar.
Ahead, shop our 12 favorite pieces you can add to your cart today. Some are best-sellers, others are personal favorites and all are 100% recommended.
Ready for a new flannel-like top to foray into the fall season? There’s none other like the Amazon Essentials 3/4 Sleeve Poplin Shirt. It’s cute, comfy and comes in an array of hues to choose from. For less than $25, you’ll want to pick up more than one.
As one of the best-selling men’s polos, the Regular-Fit Cotton Pique Polo Shirt is less than $20 and has a rich color variety. Its comfort-grade material fits like your best t-shirt, too, and you can dress it up or down depending on the occasion.
We love Amazon Essentials for many reasons, but one of them happens to be for its Women’s Plus catalog that’s inclusive and super stylish. One of our favorite pieces is the Plus-Size Tank Swing Dress for its breathable nature and cute prints. For more, check out our guide to the best plus-size clothing brands.
Looking for a sharp pair of pants? We can’t stop looking at the Athletic-Fit 5-Pocket Stretch Twill Pant — not only for its autumnal flair but also for that flattering fit. They resemble your fine pair of chinos in the best way.
When in doubt, a new pajama set will always make you feel put-together. One of our favorite selections is the Poplin Sleep Tee & Pant Set. For $25, it also makes a fabulous gift for anyone’s birthday (or early holiday shopping!)
With more than 10,000 reviews, it’s no surprise people use Amazon to shop for men’s underwear. At a great value, the retailer’s Essentials brand has a fabulous seven-pack of Tag-Free Cotton Briefs waiting to be worn every day of the week.
You can never have too many bras. Coming in hot is the Classic T-Shirt Bra — a surefire way to make you feel your best without feeling like you’re wearing one at all. For more of a lift, check out our guide to the best push-up bras (many of which you can snag on Amazon!)
We don’t even have to explain why this two-pack of Performance Tech T-Shirts are worth it. Not only are they unisex (ladies, you need some men’s sleep shirts in your life) but you can select your preferred colors before checking out. Oh, and they’re so cozy.
We have these Relaxed Fit Studio Terry Capri Jogger Pant on our wishlists. For one, they’re an elevated take on the sometimes mundane jogger bottoms and, much to our delight, look fresh with your good pair of white sneakers. They’re also widely loved on Amazon.
If you’re on the hunt for a well-made pair of men’s jeans, you need the Amazon Essentials Skinny-Fit Stretch Jean. For less than $35, their color selection is great, and it’ll look wonderful with a snazzy sports coat.
Meet your next favorite Amazon dress. The Mini Feminine Flannel Shirt Dress is the quintessential work dress we want: belted, flowy and versatile. Not to mention, the color selection spans to neutrals if you’re looking for something to style with nude heels.
If there’s one thing Amazon sells fast, it’s a good pair of leggings. For just $15, you’ll love how these athletic-grade bottoms are fit for any workout — whether you’re on a rowing machine or treadmill. Oh, and they pair well with a good sports bra.
