5 Ways to Style Basics You'll Wish You Knew Earlier

As summer is drawing to a close and fall fashion is right around the corner, many Fashionistas might be looking for new ways to revamp their wardrobes for the season change. So before we start exchanging flip-flops for riding boots, I wanted to share with you one of my newest fashionable obsessions. This fall I’m going back to the basics. I love wearing basic tees and tanks because they’re perfect for college kids on the go because you can dress them up or down. Basic tees and tanks are a fashion staple that doesn’t have to break the bank.  If you’re looking for some quick options for styling those pieces, here are five easy ways that are sure to make for a truly rad look.

When looking to accessorize a basic, adding a simple neutral colored watch to an outfit can definitely be that secret sophisticated ingredient to dressing up that tee.

Don’t get me wrong—I love classic dark wash denim, but I also love stepping outside of the box and exploring some news styles when it comes to jeans. A sweet pair of distressed jeans is a perfect pairing for a basic T-shirt if you’re looking to go that extra mile with your look.

A colorful shoe really gives an extra pop to an #ootd that includes a plain T-shirt. When it comes to footwear with basic pieces, I personally love to wear a pair of Converse or a lightweight sneaker.

Jean jackets are a great way to dress up a plain T-shirt. A statement jacket is great a complement to a T-shirt because it provides that cool layered look that’s just right for autumn temperatures.
