If there’s one thing I own a lot, it’s basic tops. Whether it’s white t-shirts or black tank tops, they’re the backbone of most of my outfits because I pair them with pretty much everything from midi skirts to high-waisted jeans and relaxed pants. But what really takes my basic tops to another level are the accessories I wear with them, like the chic belts and beaded chains.
The right accessories can make the simplest basics 10 times higher and more expensive. The best part is that these items don’t need to cost a fortune, especially if you know the right places to look. An added tip is that these timeless accessories can also help you easily transition your favorite staples from the office to the weekend and back again. Below I want to share some of my favorite pieces that will make your basic tops look expensive and chic and are totally on trend.
