It’s no secret that a white tee & blue jeans are the ultimate must-have basics. They go with pretty much everything, are easy to wear and look good on everyone, but sometimes you just want a little more…
I walked into J.Crew at Market Street-The Woodlands looking for something minimal and comfy but a little more chic & femenine than the usual tee & jeans combo. And after trying on what seemed like the entire store, I finally have a new take on basics!
Here’s three easy tips to upgrade your basics:
• Look for details– I went for this cute white linen tank. The fringe detail on the hem, bust, and straps gives my outfit a more polished & feminine look. It’s still as comfy and fresh as a white tee would be but with a lot more character.
• Pay attention to fit – I cant’t stress this enough! The fit of your jeans (or pants) will always make or brake your entire look. For the jeans I tried to go for a pair with minimal distress and a great fit for more of a classic touch. These are the ‘Toothpick’ fit and they are seriously amazing!
• Add a fun focal point– Although I do like to wear it once in a while, I’m not a huge fan of big jewelry so I kept it neutral with my bag & hat and finished it off with these adorable pom pom sandals which also served as the focal point. Definitely a new take on basics!
Do you have any tips or tricks when it comes to making your basics pop? I’d love to hear them!
