Heart Eyes for Eyelet - Elevate Your Basic White Tops

 Haley Ivers Urban Outfitters Eyelet Ruffle Top

I've always been drawn to white tops (aren't we all though?) I mean they're classic, go with absolutely everything, and you can always rely on them. After all, they are staples.

Honestly, I've never met a white top I didn't like. 

However, as I've been getting more into fashion this past year, one thing I've been trying to learn is how to transform my basics into something more. Like, how can I make an outfit with a white top turn heads? I surely can't do that with a basic white tee.

I started turning toward texture to help me answer my question. 

Not only does texture add this visual appeal, but it's also a stepping stone for becoming more comfortable when branching out of what you'd normally purchase for yourself. 

What's also neat is that when you pair a textured top with other basic elements, such as a beige hat and Levi denim shorts, all of a sudden, everything else doesn't look so basic anymore either.

Listen - we don't want to be #basic. That is not our middle name.

And guess what isn't basic? Eyelet tops. I've been obsessing over eyelet tops lately. I think it's maybe because I've been getting more in touch with my feminine side. (I mean jeeeez, I never used to dress as girly as I do now, believe it or not!) But anyhoo, eyelet is so me. And it will be so you, too.

If you haven't tried on this style before, I strongly urge you too! Not only is it feminine, but it's so boho (big plus) and it's such photogenic material.
