Some days, it just feels best (and comfiest!) to keep your outfit simple. But sticking strictly to the basics can mean sacrificing style. I’ve found the best way to remedy this dilemma is to keep a few notice-me blouses, tees, and button-downs in your closet. Here are four styles I can’t get enough of right now.

Graphic Print

Opt for a top already covered in patterns. It’s an almost effortless way to make an outfit feel playful.

Madewell Party Favor tee, $45.

Neon Sweater

Neon accents are the easiest way to make a statement right now. Pair with jeans or a simple pair of black pants if you think the look is too risky for you.

Madewell Patternplay sweater, $85.

Leather Detailing

Since I bought this top a few weekends back, I've worn it more times than I care to mention. Turns out, leather detailing is my favorite way to toughen up a look or just add interest to an otherwise simple T-shirt.

Zara T-shirt, $29.90.


I've said this before and I'll say it again: I would wear chambray day in and day out if I could. Just like jeans, the denim-colored material seems to go with almost anything yet still manages to make an outfit look current.

Forever 21 chambray button-down, $22.80.

    I have been searching for that madewell sweater literally everywhere! If you are ever interested in selling your clothes, I will totally buy that sweater off your back! haha for full price.

  • I've been eyeing that red top at Madewell the last couple times I went in there. I also have been wanting a leopard belt. Now you just HAD to wear both of them together and look so awesome, you have forced me to go shopping. Dammit.
