This year, I am especially thankful for the internet. While COVID-19 undoubtedly threw a wrench into nearly all of our 2020 plans, the unseen power of WiFi has played a huge part in ushering us through these unprecedented times. Whether you've spent countless hours streaming new shows, ordering groceries online, or elevating your apartment's aesthetic, none of this would have been possible without the ability to shop online, and that's something we at Who What Wear are particularly thankful for this year.

So while we still love to identify the latest trends, shine a spotlight on emerging brands, and revel in the hunt for the perfect party dress, I'm taking this opportunity to give a shout out to the everyday items that have seen our editors—and thousands of our readers—through countless Zoom calls, at-home workouts, and indoor weekends. Get ready for an instant upgrade, because 35 of this season's best-selling fashion basics on Amazon are just a few clicks away.
