More often than not, you’ll find the editors at Rue dressed in head-to-toe basics. While we love taking fashion risks, we believe in the power in finding a uniform and sticking to it. After all, there’s a reason why some looks never go away. Enter our favorite – blue jeans and a classic white tee.

Victoria Törnegren’s take on jeans and a t-shirt is pretty fabulous. The addition of leopard pumps and a Rebecca Taylor moto jacket elevate the look from “Saturday errands” to “Saturday night out.” The best part? Many of us have these items in our closet already! It’s just a matter of thinking outside of the box (or closet) and trying something new.

Tell us – what’s your favorite way to dress up your basics?
