Jared Kushner Brings an End to the Era of the Skinny Suit

The authoritative hand of fashion has become so dulled, and the anything-goes attitude of personal style so pervasive, that nearly every article of clothing can survive attempted annihilation. The black turtleneck can thrive in spite of Elizabeth Holmes’s endorsement; Lanvin flats can rise above “the Soho Grifter” Anna Sorokin’s dubious affection; Savile Row tailoring will press on despite Roger Stone’s best efforts; and the Barbour jacket has risen above Steve Bannon’s attempted putrefaction.

The 20 Best Cheap Spring Accessories That Look So Expensive

One of my guilty fashion pleasures is a good T-shirt. I would honestly wear one every single day if I could (and I try my hardest to do so). As much as I try to force myself into more elaborate tops and outfit combos, my default is always some combo of jeans and a T-shirt. Luckily for me, with the addition of a few strategic accessories, you can make the classic T-shirt outfit feel modern and new.

In fall, it’s a chic pair of knee-high boots and a blazer. In summer, it’s a midi slip skirt and elevated sandals. This spring, it’s a few key accessories like chain necklaces and polished sunglasses that are going to make my favorite tees feel elevated and expensive. The best part is that these accessories are secretly super affordable if you know the right places to look. Below, I’m highlighting the best cheap
