Summer basics can sometimes be a tad boring. But, when it’s severely hot outside, all I want to reach for are breezy basics. I do these 3 things to take my basics from boring to fabulous.
Bell cuff tee (on sale) | Tie-waist shorts (on sale) | Gladiator sandals | Bag (c/o)
Kendra Scott necklace (old) | Movado Bold Sport watch
1. Pay attention to details
A breezy t-shirt and shorts are easy choices on super hot days. Choosing these items, though, with interesting details easily jazzes up the classic combination. My bell cuff white tee (now under $20) and tie-waist fluid shorts (now under $20) pack lots of pizazz.
2. Add accessories for flair
The right accessories can take any look from basic to brilliant. From statement earrings to chokers to cuff bracelets, the choices are plentiful this season. For this look, I chose an old Kendra Scott necklace with tassels.
3. Step into sandals that make a statement
Statement sandals have been especially popular this year. From slides to lace-up sandals, add a pair that shows off your flair for style. I found these gladiator sandals by Vince for a steal in Nordstrom Rack (find more sizes also on sale here).

Totally agree with all these tips. I love using accessories to dress up my basics in the summer.
Thanks so much, Janel!
