Even if you transition your wardrobe at the start of every season, there are likely a handful of pieces you always keep in your rotation because they work for year-round wear—certain styles just don't have a seasonal expiration date. But there's an extra layer to it this year: Many people are returning to their offices for the first time in two years, and their calendars are filling up with events, too. If you want to dress up your look with a few simple pieces you'll wear throughout spring, summer, and beyond, Amazon just launched a new secret section filled with elevated basics

The retailer's latest curated virtual storefront has almost 100 pieces tucked inside, ranging from sweaters and jeans to bags and shoes. It makes it easy to create your own capsule wardrobe that includes both clothes and accessories—and there are lots of under-$50 finds. 

Jeans, like a classic pair of Levi's, are a closet staple no matter the season because you can dress them up and down. You will never regret having a lightweight sweater like this timeless cable knit style to wear or take with you for use in chilly, air-conditioned spaces. Plus, a pair of mules and a backpack that can double as a purse and a travel bag are essentials. And Amazon shoppers are fans of the items, of course.

One five-star reviewer who purchased the Levi's Ribcage Straight Ankle Jeans wrote: "These jeans are perfect," adding that they already own 20 pairs of pants from the brand. "From a Levi's connoisseur, get these!" they continued. Another shopper added, "Favorite Levi's jeans I've ever owned."

The Telena Travel Backpack is another customer favorite. "​​Lots of space and compartments in this stylish [backpack]," wrote one shopper. They confirmed their 14-inch laptop fits inside, and they also shared that the bag "has lots of pockets to stash away a host of other things."

You're welcome to browse through all of the items and their varied price points, or you can shop nine of our favorite everyday basics below. Whether you're running errands on a Saturday or gearing up for in-person meetings, these pieces will definitely earn a spot in your year-round rotation.
