How to Bring a T-Shirt & Jeans to the Next Level

I love that no matter what time of the year or the season, as long as you have a good plain white tee and a pair of jeans, the possibilities are endless. All you have to do is find the perfect accessories to switch it up from time to time!  Add a killer jacket, some super fun shoes or a bag and suddenly even the most basic of outfits can be statement making chic.

Bomber: Coach (Similar Here) | Jeans: Frame Denim | Shoes: Fendi | Sunnies: AHLEM

For this look, I wanted to focus on the outerwear. I threw on a super cool shearling and faux fur jacket from Coach, some chic sunnies, and some sneakers on to transform my tee and jeans. As the weather cools down (yay!) breaking out cool jackets and coats are the perfect way to edge up an otherwise simple outfit. Whether it’s a funky bomber like the one I’m wearing here, or something classic like a trench or leather jacket– outerwear is going to be your secret weapon.

Bomber: Coach | T-Shirt: James Perse | Jeans: Frame Denim | Bag: Coach | Shoes: Lena Erziak

This look was all about accessories. This bomber and bag have the cutest matching strawberry print, and right when I saw it I was reminded of Chloe! I’ve had to hide this bag from her, because if she found it- it definitely wouldn’t be mine anymore LOL! The print also inspired me to create a more playful, whimsical look and I always love a good feather moment! These heels (similar here) are the perfect balance between sophisticated and fun.

So if you, like a lot of girls on my team, like to stick to the basics, try playing around with accessories to bring your outfit to the next level!

    The Coach faux fur with shearling jacket is stunning on you. I have been looking for a shearling jacket for a while now. I would buy the Coach jacket but it is no longer available…unless someone knows where one could get it?
