Everyone dresses in this combination. At least once in your life, you turned towards the famous tee & jeans combo to get you out of a sticky situation. After all, if celebs can pull it off, then there’s certainly no problem for you to do it. Although it’s a definite comfortable combination, you might be tempted to think that it’s a bit of a cop-out choice, which is a statement of despair.
Can you make a T-shirt and a pair of jeans look chic stylish? You can – and this is why we’re here. We’ll tell you how, with the right accessories, you’ll be able to look like you’ve come straight off the catwalk of a glamourous fashion show.
#1 Wear a colourful Scarf
Scarves are our faithful allies in case of a fashion emergency, as they are often the spice and pepper of an outfit that we’re trying to improve. Drape a patterned scarf around your neck, play around with the way you fold it, and you’ll undoubtedly elevate the chic-level of your whole attire.
Scarves go extremely well when paired with some nice western-looking boots and a pair of subtly coloured shades. You can avoid looking too much like a cowgirl (unless you’re willingly going for this style) by throwing in some retro accessories to balance it out, such as classy rings or a long-chained necklace with a small watch pendant.
#2 Go Bold with Colours
This is what you should be majorly aiming for here. Denim isn’t a particularly colourful material and it often fades into the outfit. If you benefit from a richly patterned T-shirt, then perhaps you don’t need to worry about making your apparel pop out more. But especially if it’s a classic “white tee, blue jeans” combination, then you need to channel all craziness, colours, and patterns into everything else.
Opt for a pair of sneakers embellished in spots that resemble a painted canvas or ones decorated with feminine floral patterns blended in with bubblegum pink and white. Clothe yourself in pastel – on the bag, on a nice hat with little gems embedded in it, or on a cute watch or pair of earrings.
#3 Decorate with Pearls
Yes, pearls. We live in a time of possibilities and, with the right eye, anyone can pull off even the most surreal of combinations. Pearls are always a pinch of elegance and refined style to any outfit. While it’s easy to match them to a little black dress or a ball gown, they can also add a stunning touch to a casual outfit.
Clip around your neck a classic bead of pearls or put your hair up in a messy bun and unveil a cute pair of fishhook slip-in freshwater pearl earrings. Whether it’s a necklace, a pair of earrings, a bracelet or a ring, they will suddenly make you feel like you’re strolling through Paris and about to be photographed for a big fashion publication.
#4 Rock out with Spikes and Leather
Fear not, for you can also make this outfit be incredibly sexy. One sure way to achieve that is by putting on a black leather jacket. No matter the time of the day or situation, the mystery and elegance of black combined with the boldness and sex-appeal of leather will cloak you in an air of sensuality and confidence.
You can further accessorise by trying to follow a desired style – for example, a minimalist glam rock appearance. Opt for a gold spiked necklace with black accents that will definitely bring to light your inner tigress. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to slip your feet into that pair of leopard-print pumps to make you completely irresistible.
Cheers for debunking one more fashion myth. This is what style is all about, in the end – knowing how and when to add the right accessories. It’s all in the little things, which can make a great impact and ultimately completely change the vibes you want to transmit through your outfit.
