Welcome to this month’s edition of Work it Wednesday! So, I was thinking about my wardrobe basics for fall and considered how my go to looks when I am running late usually involve something really quick and easy like a tunic and leggings. Well, while those are great to grab and throw on when I don’t want to much effort into my look, I also do not want to look like I am wearing the same thing all the time! I pondered how I could style a simple black tunic and leggings in a myriad of ways and still look totally put together in a hot minute.

First up we have a layered look with a white button down underneath my tunic with black oxfords. I think we all forget sometimes to layer underneath, and how it can expand our wardrobe. If oxfords aren’t your style, flats or heels would work just as well.

A simple tunic and leggings can be dressy with the right accessories. Add a bit of glitz, glam heels, and a clutch and you are good to go. Also, can I just say I am happy my hair is long enough to pull into an up-do again!

Denim jackets, booties, and scarves are always favorite layering tools for me. I love how they add so much dimension to a look, especially when they include leopard and olive! Those are my faves at the moment, but obviously this would work with a variety of colors and print options.

Add a lace extender under your tunic for a dress look with booties or boots for a casual boho feel. A pendent necklace or scarf work well with the long lines of a tunic as an accessory.

A colorful blanket scarf and wellies offer a fun option for rainy days. A great way to keep warm and dry, while looking cute and stylish in the process.

A moto jacket and booties are a fab way to bring some extra edge to these basics. I rarely do monochromatic looks, but know I am all set to be back in black for this take on style.
