I love a good better than basic top in summer! They’re bold and fun to dress up or down. Here are 4 outfits with a better than basic top for summer.

A couple of weeks ago I shared a post about “SUMMER CLOSET STAPLES.” If you didn’t see it, check it out RIGHT HERE. Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing how to wear some of those closet staples so you get more wear out of them in your wardrobe.

Today’s closet staple: BETTER THAN BASIC TOP

A top that is better than a t-shirt is a staple for summer. Dress it up or down, there are so many occasions and options to wear a fun top.

I shared a bunch of Better than Basic tops in this post, if you want to add some to your closet!

4 outfits with a better than basic top

Today I’m sharing four ways to wear one of my favorite Better Than Basic tops — this white top. Here’s four ways to wear it, and you can copy them with your Better Than Basic tops!

Dress up your Better than Basic Top

An easy way to dress up your Better Than Basic top is to tuck it into a skirt. You can do an a-line skirt like this, or you could do a fancier skirt, like a slip skirt or a dressy midi skirt.

Of course to keep things dressy, you have to choose dressy shoes. You could do a classic pump, but I went for a more summery heeled sandal.

Wear your Better than Basic Top for work

Your Better than Basic tops can be great for workwear! In the case of this top that has Better than Basic sleeves, I just paired it with dress pants and fun loafers.

If your Better than Basic top has a fun print but the sleeves are simple, you could layer it under a jacket or blazer.

Of course, you could also tuck it or half tuck it into a pencil skirt for work!

Wear your Better than Basic top with jeans

Better than basic tops are a great option to wear with your jeans to make a cute and fun outfit. Tuck it into high waisted wide leg jeans like I did here, or half tuck or leave untucked with skinny jeans. They’re great with any style of jeans!
