What's Hot 'White' Now?

So we all spend a lot of time talking about trends for the new Spring season; Nautical, Safari, etc. But if you're like me and work a "normal" job and make "non-celebrity level" money, then you know it gets to be very financially tasking to buy into every trend that's out there and most of our wardrobe usually consists of basics - your basic white button down shirt, basic color tees and cardis, your favorite blue jeans - and every now and then, a trendy, flashy accessory to glam it up.

I love some of the basics we have this season on metrostyle - some of the basic knit tops and especially in the Buy 2 & Save section, loaded with tops and shoes (you buy more, you save more!) And these basics will last you through all seasons - Sleek Knot-Front Tank and Bootcut Jeans with flats or sandals in the Spring, and throw a Cascade Cardigan on for the Fall! And you don't HAVE to buy the plain old white shirt, we've got some great alternatives too, like this Ruffled Short Sleeve Shirt - I think I'm going to have to get!

What basics do you have in your closet and what do you do to 'trend' it up?
