You don't have to pack away these pieces after you hit the gym or get home from the campsite.
The arrival of a new season is a great time to take stock of your wardrobe basics.
We especially love basics that are versatile — those comfortable pieces that don’t have to be stowed away after hitting the gym or a taking camping trip. These picks can just as easily be worn out in the city and even to a casual office and, as basics, can pair with anything.
