I live for basics. Basically because you get a lot of wiggle room. Break up any color-blocked fit with your favorite print or statement necklace. I am a sucker for leopard print year-round and find any excuse to pair it with a plain tee.
As far as necklaces go, the chunkier- the better. My kate spade collar necklace is my immediate go to and can revolutionize any look with a classic, casual vibe to instant rocker chic. What pattern are you going to dress up and dabble in?
