4 Ways to Take a Plain White T-Shirt to the Next Level

Over the heat? Nothing to wear? Update your plain white t-shirt with one or more of these accessories that’ll be sure to heat up your outift.

Add An Enamel Pin

Consider these to be the new, low-key brooch. Wear enamel pins on the collar of your shirt, on your sleeves, or even in groups of three. The eclectic, tongue-in-cheek styles are endless, including our favorites: an empty donut box and a Picasso’d out Kanye.

Add a Choker

As hard as we try to fight it, the choker trend is still going strong. So move on from last summer’s minimal black ribbons and opt for a statement choker (like Alison Lou’s new velvet emoji necklaces) instead.
