Dress up a T-shirt
September 21, 2014, 1:06 pm

Many fashionistas choose to wear t-shirts for their amazing designs and sense of comfort. A plain white t-shirts is usually the go-to piece of clothing when you to feel relaxed. Usually worn with jeans, knee high boots or flats, styling is simple and doesn’t require a lot of thought. However, changing your look up from time to time is a good idea.

The best part about taking a t-shirt to the next level? Up styling is easy. Here are five suggestions to make your t-shirts to look less casual and more snazzy.

Add a blazer: A well-fitting blazer makes a fun t-shirt look borderline professional. While you might not be able to wear the ensemble to your office, it will look good for an evening with friends or a causal party. A t-shirt plus a blazer should be a standard in your wardrobe.

You can find blazers in an array of colors and styles from stores, but classic colors like black and gray go with a wider variety of tees. Eye-catching colors like neon blue or salmon will set off your darker color T-shirts nicely.

It’s all about a big necklace: Statement jewelry can make all the difference in any outfit, and it especially stands out against plain clothing. Look over your t-shirt collection and make a note about the most common colors. With that in hand, head to your preferred accessory store and choose a few complementary pieces – the bigger, the better. Giant jewelry seems to be trendy right now, and you accessorize your plain t-shirt with dazzling chunky necklaces and earrings. If you don’t feel comfortable with big jewelry, a simple faux pearl necklace also does wonders.

Fancy footwear: Heels of any height make a t-shirt paired with skinny jeans or leggings look fantastic. Knee-high boots add something extra too, even if they are flat. And, if you don’t plan to touch heels, you can find flats that have the same effect of interjecting spunk into your outfit. Go with flats that are adorned with sparkles, spikes, or a glossy finish.

Find a cute skirt: Amp the fashion quotient of graphic tees with skirts in straight styles like A-line and pencil skirts. Or you can consider going flirty with skirts that have flounce like a maxi or skater skirt. Solid colors work best, and a mix of bold shades will definitely add a level of oomph to your outfit. One style advice that has worked for years is to wear a graphic t- shirt tucked in or out of a red, pleated style skirt.

Ditch the denim:  Usually you can’t stop yourself from wearing your t-shirt with blue jeans, but attempt other styles once in a while. Swap out your regular jeans for dress pants in any color, striped pants, or leather (real or fake) pants. Actually, even changing to colored denim can make a difference.
