HOW TO BRIGHTEN UP A BASIC LOOK

FASHION

Exact tank here & t-shirt version here. || Similar cutoffs here and more at bottom of post. || Zippered clutch || Layered necklace || Exact earrings sold out but similar versions from same brand here and more options at bottom of post. More expensive version here.

 

If you’re anything like me, then you love a good jeans and t-shirt look. On hot summer days the jeans turn into cutoffs, but the concept of reliable and comfortable basics stays the same. A crisp white tee and denim is the perfect base combination because it’s simple and casual. But did you know that it’s equally as easy to elevate the same look with just three fun (and in this case, inexpensive) accessories? Before you know it, you have a whole new look!

Look no farther then Target to find affordable and trendy accessories to help brighten up a basic wardrobe look. For under $45 I purchased a zippered clutch, a layered necklace, and a pair of statement earrings. If you think you’re not a jewelry person, I encourage you to try on a pair of fun, colorful earrings and I promise you’ll change your mind! If you’ve been following for a while you know that I’m obsessed with tassel earrings like the ones I’m wearing here… I can’t get enough! The exact pair I’m wearing sold out but I linked many more in the same color scheme, from the same brand. If you’re looking for this exact tassel combo though, you can find the more expensive version here. The layered necklace look is so eye-catching and pretty but most people have a difficult time finding all the right pieces in the right lengths. Well, no worries because all the work is done with one-piece necklaces like this one that do all the layering for you. Lastly, grab a clutch with a cute summer pattern on it and you’re ready to go!

Please open this post in your browser so you can see all of the shoppable photos below. Be warned that Target is having a huge sale today and their site has been extremely slow. If you’re having issues when you click the links, then maybe try again in a couple hours. I also linked similar denim cutoffs, the exact tank I’m wearing and the t-shirt version as well (can’t beat white tees under $20).
