Reese's basic pieces

I never noticed till recently, but Reese Witherspoon has great style! Sure she's a mom and all, but that doesn't mean you have to be boring. What I like about her outfits are that they consist of very basic pieces, but she adds an unexpected touch with her accessories.

Here are Reese's style essentials:

Bold Necklace
A great way to dress up a basic t-shirt or sweater is by pairing it with a statement necklace. When you're wearing something as simple as a gray v-neck, it's okay to pick the craziest necklace out of your jewelry box. It's so simple and can be done right before you walk out the door.

Comfy Flats
Another one of Reese's re-occuring items are her simple, but chic flats. It's nice to have a pair of flats around in a versatile color to keep your outfit "put together" without leaving comfort out of the equation.

(Clockwise from top): Urban Outfitters, $42.00; Target, $16.99; Old Navy, $19.50.

Trendy Handbags
Go with a detailed bag to spruce up your outfit, even if you're just wearing a t-shirt and jeans. But get your bag in a color that will easily mesh with any of your outfits, such as white, silver, or beige. They are timeless colors that will never go out of style. Avoid crazy prints and patterns.

I've been very into getting some classic, basic pieces that I can make a million different outfits with. Right now I'm coveting a slightly oversized, gray sweater that I can wear with skinnies and a layer of necklaces. How do you dress up your basics?
