Basic Outfit Combos With Bite

While blue jeans and a white shirt will never go out of style (thanks, Lana del Rey), sometimes our everyday wardrobe routine could use a little shakeup. Ahead, three outfit combinations that offer a fresh alternative to your usual t-shirt and denim, and are just as easy to put together - we promise!
A-LINE SKIRT + SILKY TOP
It may sound simple, but in reality this basics combo is anything but basic. The length, colour and fabric of the skirt can be mixed and matched to suit the weather, your mood or occasion, while the silky top is just as versatile. Try a pleated midi and tucked-in camisole for an on-trend take on transeasonal dressing that can go from desk to date and back again!
OVERSIZED BUTTON-DOWN + SKINNY PANTS
Borrow from the boys with a basics combo that’s It-Girl approved and easy enough to throw together for a day of errands, class or a breezy Sunday brunch. Crisp white cotton is always a winner, but banker stripes and washed back chambray work just as well. Team with leather pants, black leggings or tapered trousers for a look that’s just as comfortable as it is polished.
JERSEY DRESS + CROPPED JACKET
For warm weather dressing without the brain power, turn to this last outfit equation. A stretchy tank or tee dress is wearable on its own, but takes on new life when teamed with a cropped jacket. Choose a distressed denim jacket, leather biker or street-style-bait bomber to bring a little extra dimension and interest to this weekend staple.
