Start off with a jeans and tee basic look (it can be any style or color) and dress it up to show off your personal style with accessories, jewelry, and whatever you’d like to add.T-shirt and jeans may be a boring combination but if you know how to dress them up, they may not be boring after all. Some of the keys on how to dress up a boring T-shirt and jeans:
Layer it: I love layering especially during winter. It’s hard to see but I am wearing 4 layers in this outfit. I started with a plain white tank top underneath, a white button-down shirt, a basic sweater and a blazer. The key is to start with pieces that are made from thinner materials first then layer them with heavier items to avoid the bulkiness.
Define your waist: Wearing a belt is a simplest way to dress up a casual outfit. The belt can immediately turn the plain T-shirt into something formal and more interesting. I rolled up my sleeves to add a feminine touch to this menswear-inspired outfit.
What I am wearing:
Jeans: AE Artist in faded wash - sz 00R (buy similar here - on major sale)
Shirt: H&M button-down - sz 2 (buy similar here - available in small sizes)
Sweater: BR merino wool sweater - sz XSP (buy similar here - available in XXS)
Blazer: BR linen blazer - sz 0R (buy similar here - available in small sizes)
Bracelet: Amrita Singh bracelet (buy similar here in black)
Accessorize: A plain outfit doesn't necessarily mean that it must be a boring outfit. One piece of bold accessory can spice up any boring outfit. This Amrita Singh bracelet is the key piece to this outfit. I can’t tell you enough how much I love this bracelet. I bought it from Gilt a few months ago and I cannot stop wearing it. Since this outfit is kind of plain, it creates a nice backdrop for bold jewelry.
Jeans and a T-shirt may seem plain and boring at first glance. However, there are countless way to dress them up. Experiment with what you have in your closet and see what works best for you.
