Wardrobe Classics: Striped T-shirt.

A striped t-shirt is cool with leather and a statement necklace.

Remixing the classics– like a striped t-shirt and skinny jeans– is a surefire way to keep your wardrobe fresh without getting too trendy. I’m all for test driving all the new-and-now buzzy pieces, but incorporating timeless elements ensures outfitting success. I put a boxy leather jacket (an old Victoria’s Secret score, but current dupes right here and here) over the top and added in some oomph with a huge (and heavy, ha) statement necklace and suede pumps. A gold cap toe feels pretty cool right now, doesn’t it? The result is a go-anywhere outfit that can be worn again and again.

What I love about classic basics like this striped t-shirt and skinnies is the serious go-anywhere remix potential. This outfit is great for dinner dates, out-of-the-office work gatherings, or going out with your girlfriends. Outfitting arithmetic: subtract the leather jacket, mega necklace, and pumps + add sneakers and a bomber jacket. Now you’re super casual (but still polished) for doing the Target-mall-grocery run or grabbing a few drinks at your neighborhood watering hole for the game. Sub the skinnies for a pencil skirt and add in a classic pump? Now you’re elevating that striped t-shirt to most office dress code standards and can do happy hour and dinner after, no problem.
