  • The absolute easiest way to upgrade your favorite jeans and tee is with a killer necklace. Picking a flare silhouette over your go-to skinny jeans helps switch up the look a bit, and an easy bag adds some cheerful color to your weekday outfit.


  • Yaaas, it's time to break out that longline vest you've stashed at the back of your closet. If you can go casual at work — or need to meet with a professor and look, well, profesh — this is definitely the way to do it. A green-on-green shoe-and-tee combo gives this outfit major life.


  • Layering never goes out of style, and this cozy AF vest will keep you warm as the weather transitions from muggy to chilly. Booties always pair nicely with distressed denim, and a mustard-color bag shows you've got that whole '70s-inspired trend on lock.


  • You know when you want to look just put together without worrying about how exactly to make it happen? This is the outfit for you. Take your favorite striped tee and jeans, and add a light jacket, killer IDGAF booties, some bling, and you're ready for whatever comes your way.

  • The color burgundy is still majorly trending, only this autumn it's paired with pastels for a pop of personality. Mix these two unexpected oldies-but-goodies with a casual bootie, ladylike bag, and a patterned scarf to prove you can do casual-cool better than anyone.

  • Remember that poncho-wrap cardigan thing you thought you'd never wear again? Make it fresh with a crisp pair of jeans, a gray crew neck tee, and an OTK boot. A final touch of fancy-schmancy earrings will take your whole look up a notch.


  • If you want to look like a French It girl, here's your chance. Take your fave striped tee, mix it with curve-hugging denim jeggings, add a red jacket, and ladylike shoes and bag. And voilà. C'est chic, n'est-ce pas?


  • Running errands – not so chic. An excuse to use that drugstore aisle as your own personal runway? So chic. This seemingly thrown-together outfit will have everyone from the checkout gal to the pharmacy dude sneaking glances at you. Jeans + tee + rad high tops + on-trend shopper is all you need to feel fabulous.


  • A good jeans-and-tee lewk doesn't mean you have to go too crazy with accessories. Try a tonal tee and scarf to add personality to your favorite pair of flares. A platform is key here to elongate your leg and show off what you've got.


  • News flash: You can layer things under a tee too! Try taking a worn chambray shirt and layering it under a tee for a new spin on old standby favorites. Retro boots and a coordinating blue tote will totally have you turning heads.


  • This year, even your graphic tees can (and should) get in on the action. This eclectic outfit works for a reason — because you give zero fucks. A heavy necklace, a quirky pump, and a super high-waisted jean will have you strutting around town like the queen you are.
