I love the challenge of trying to create several looks out of 1 -2 pieces of clothing. It really helps me think creatively and it's fun to see how many ways you can wear your clothes. For example, I started with one of my favorite basic v-neck tanks from Express and my most recent favorite pairs of Jeans from Levi's. I was getting ready for the day and when I put those two items on, I looked in the mirror and thought it looked pretty basic. So, I challenged myself to come up with better ways to style them because they are two of my most comfortable items of clothing and I didn't want to change again.
Look #1—Dressy Casual
In this first look, I simply added my favorite snakeskin mules, my favorite boho cuffs from Victoria Emerson along with my two signature necklaces I wear almost every day and some of my favorite rings. The Jewelry and the shoes really helped turned this basic outfit up a notch.
I then added in my favorite handbag from Rebecca Minkoff and the look was complete! I took a basic outfit from boring to chic by simply adding in some cute shoes, accessories and matching handbag.
You don't always have to be dressed up in "dress" clothes to feel like you are put together. I love wearing casual clothes and I love how easy it is to dress them up.
Look #2—Night Out
In the second look, I simply traded my favorite snakeskin mules for my favorite Sam Edelman Suede Heels.I kept the Jewelry the same and added my favorite boyfriend blazer from Express. This blazer is so chic and looks great dressed up or down. The Blazer and the heels turned this basic outfit up a notch even further.
This look is perfect for a night out with your man or your girlfriends! I love wearing jeans with heels and pairing those with a sexy blazer is even better!
You could even pair this outfit with a sleek crossbody bag like this one you will see in Look #3.
Look #3—Sporty Chic
In the third look, I simply traded my favorite heels for my favorite Adidas grand court sneakers. I kept the Jewelry the same and added my favorite new waffle knit cardigan from Target. This cardigan is so comfy and looks great with shorts, pants and even over dresses. You can never go wrong with a cardigan in my opinion. The Cardigan and the sneakers turned this basic outfit into a chic sporty look.
This look is perfect for a day out with your friends shopping, eating lunch, running errands and more! I love styling my favorite sneakers in different ways than just leggings and athletic wear.
Adding in my favorite crossbody quilted handbag from Rebecca Minkoff really helps dress this otherwise casual outfit up along with the beautiful boho cuffs and necklaces.
I hope this helps you style your next basic tank and pair of jeans!
