I love using accessories to change the look of an outfit. Without them a striped tee and jeans is nothing special, but when you add the right accessories you can really transform a look. Take this Old Navy tee and GAP boyfriend jeans:
For daytime I paired them with a Joe Boxer neon orange striped scarf, Route 66 sandals, Madewell sunnies, and gold and neon jewelry.
For evening, I popped on some Calvin Klein coral suede heels, a JCREW glitter clutch, some statement bracelets, and a necklace.
The end result is two distinct looks, using basic pieces from my wardrobe. My rule of thumb: when in doubt, accessorize! ;)
What are your favorite pieces to dress up and down?
