the 3 B’s of elevating a basic tee

I love t-shirts; they’re just so comfy and can really work for just about any occasion if you play your style cards right! I recently made an Instagram reel on my 3 B’s for elevating a basic tee, so I wanted to share them with you here on the blog! They’re super easy to do, and odds are you have all the items in your closet already! Read on (& watch the reel I did below for a visual!)…

Bling (aka jewelry)

What look isn’t elevated by a little something shiny? Jewelry is a great way to jazz up a basic tee and take it from loungewear to lunch on the town. Layering a bunch of pretty good necklaces and a pair of statement earrings is all you need!

Blazers always feel put together and professional, so they’re a great way to complete your elevated casual outfit! This is especially great if you work in a business casual office and want to be comfortable, yet polished! Bonus style points if your blazer has some cool details that add visual interest, like a jacquard textured fabric!

A chic bag is the perfect finishing touch to any outfit! I’m personally a fan of teeny mini bags when I want to feel ultra-trendy, but a tote works too if you have a lot to carry! I’m also a huge fan of shopping vintage when it comes to bags, and the one I wore in the video is a vintage Fendi crescent bag.
