I’ve talked about how important it is to keep some basic pieces in your wardrobe before, but sometimes these basic pieces can become boring and simply plain. When you feel like you need just a little something to spruce up a seemingly basic look, accessorize! The great thing about having basic pieces such as a plain shirt or dress, is that it acts like a blank canvas. There’s no need to worry if the accessorizes are going to match the details of the shirt, but instead they will to accentuate and compliment the look, taking it from boring to stylish!
Some of my favorite and fastest ways to instantly change a look from boring to interesting is adding my ever so loved straw rancher hat. I’ve been using this piece on major repeat for the last few months, and why not? It goes with everything, easy to wear, and when I’m feeling a little plain in my look, it instantly adds the extra something it needs.
I also like to play with necklaces and different lengths to give a boring scoop neckline more of a shape, mixing some high and lows, widths and shapes. A plain tee is the perfect background for my ‘love’ necklace, it gives it a spotlight, and layered with my favorite pendant necklace, the pair gives my neckline the perfect amount for chic and stylish look.
So the next time you reach for that plain colored tee and feel it needs a little something else, turn to your accessories. Accessorizing is fun, stylish, and ever so fashionable!
