5 Ways to Make Basic Clothing Items Un-Basic

Like you, I get tired of the same basic items in my closet, yet I like to be comfy at work and need those basic items. I also would like to avoid spending my whole paycheck every week to look on-trend. Here are 5 ways to upgrade the basic items in your closet:

Bodysuit + maxi skirt

From sustainablesiren.com

Muted tones tone down the sexiness while the shilouette keeps the look feminine & sexy. Gold layered necklaces would complement the look ideally.

Delicate,beautiful, gold layered necklace from Etsy.com

Simple staple bodysuit from Americanapparel.com

Jeans (any style) & a T-Shirt + mules 

Jeans will never get old, but after wearing the same pair to death, they can seem old and routine. Pair yours with a white or cheeky t-shirt and adorable pair of very fashion-forward mules.

Swap out your sneakers for mules.

They also have them in gold πŸ˜©πŸ’«

A leather jacket & banging sunglasses couldn’t hurt either. Cute outfit found on Pinterest.

Jean jacket + jean dress

Found on Aliexpress.com

From Topshop

I absolutely love denim on denim and I’m a firm believer the all-American material will never get old. Even when it does, it looks sexier, and denim on denim is a chic way to re-wear the jeans items in your closet. A bright lip and chic white sneakers can keep the look tidy and prevent it from being drab.

Does Cara Delevigne keep getting prettier or…? Living for this lip color. πŸ’

Utilitarian khaki + a pop of color

Kenzo runway

I love the utilitarian khaki cropping up on SS 2017 runways. You can add a bold lip or eye look as shown here as on the Kenzo runway, or pair a trench jacket with a bold colored dress, top, or pant. A pop of color from accessories like purses or shoes would be cute if you want to keep all clothing in the khaki or olive family.

I love the offbeat cuteness of this dress. Plus, let’s save the honey bees! 😊🐝🐝🐝 Extra Tip: Keeping the dress under the jacket in the same color family keeps you from looking like a clown. πŸ˜‰ Yellow is also everywhere right now.

Sundress or slip Dress +Mesh top

 You love that sundress or slip dress you’ve worn a million times, but you can’t wear it again the same way right? That’s okay. Pair a cute on-trend mesh top like the one below by Urban Outfitters under it and you have a chic look for any night out.

Love Urban Outfitters’ mesh tops. 

Too too freaking cute. Love this look. Found on Pinterest.com

I hope you enjoyed this post & it gave you some summer outfit inspo.

Have a beautiful day!

I seriously doubt I’ll ever get over this outfit. It’s me & my love for fall in a nutshell. I paricularly love the transition between the two seasons. I love the promise of what’s to come..and I love mini skirts, kimonos, bodysuits, and warm fall colors in case you haven’t noticed. 🍁

Loving those sixties bell sleeves right now, and always really.

Seriously my fave fall colors. You can never go wrong with rust, olive, & mustard. Plus, the fact that the kimono is lightweight & this is a mini skirt makes it a good transition outfit. If youΒ live somewhere where it’s colder you could totally swap out the bodysuit for a turtleneck & add tights.

I may never get over this outfit. I’ll be living in these staples this season.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with bodysuits and the only thing that can cure this addiction is buying more. What is it about them that’s so flattering and makes you feel sexy? Not sure but I’m digging it. You can wear them a million ways and here are three ways I styled the black one by BCBG shown above.

1. With high waisted jeans

res_1470622862445_1

These super comfy and cute ones are by Calvin Klein. They’re one of the best pairs I’ve found so far for sure. I love this look and it feels like something a supermodel like Kate Moss or all around It girl like Brooke Shields would’ve worn in the 90s. In terms of my hunt for the perfect jeans..they’re up there in the top 3.

I also absolutely love the black and white theme and this long Calvin Klein vest thrown over the top of this.

2. With white dress pants, especially black or nude bodysuits.

I really love this look for date night or for a dinner party, wedding, etc. It would even be fine for work with a blazer over it. These super sleek dress pants are by Vince Camuto.

3. Β With a flirty skirtskirt, as shown above. This one is by the Marilyn Monroe clothing brand found at Macy’s.

Love this look for a date or girls’ night out. So there are my fave three ways to wear this bodysuit, and I’m already coming up with more. Can’t wait to wear bodysuits in the fall with cute jackets. To be continued!

Love you guys!
