Instead of the sweet but slightly overplayed necklace with your monogram or initial, pick one with a number instead. Birthday, anniversary, or simply your lucky digit: it'll be just as easy to wear every day, but you won't see someone else with it every hour.
At night, wear it without anything underneath (except maybe a lacy bra); by day, wear it over a little white camisole to keep it more conservative. Either way, the lace detail makes it much more exciting than the average white button-down.
You're gonna wear your trench coat on drab days, when it's rainy and gross and you don't need a ho-hum outfit, too. Instead, pick one with cool piping or shoulder details like this and you'll actually feel excited for bad weather.
Wear this embellished one the same way you would a basic chambray shirt—over a bathing suit at the beach, tucked into a leather skirt, as half of a denim tuxedo—knowing your outfit's slightly better just because of those teeny little beads.
