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
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 😩💫

A leather jacket & banging sunglasses couldn’t hurt either. Cute outfit found on Pinterest.
Jean jacket + jean dress
Found on Aliexpress.com
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. 💏
Utilitarian khaki + a pop of color
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. 😉 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!
