15 Outfit Add-Ons To Make Your Staples Feel New

We're all creatures of habit, and that translate to our wardrobes — whether we notice or not. We'll repeat our T-shirt and boyfriend jeans uniform at every brunch, our favorite black midi-dress for any drinks thing, our jumpsuit for a last-minute girls' nights (à la Miley). But, instead of splurging on new clothes to avoid being repetitive, we focus on the add-ons to our everyday basics: a strappy sandal for the first days of spring, a gorgeous bralette under that midi, a seriously cool crossbody to stand out in a see of neutrals. They may not be essential, but they make a difference. If you want to try this closet-stocking strategy, we picked out some of our favorite outfit additions from our past week of stories to start with.
