There is nothing better than jeans and a tee. T shirts are so comfortable, so flattering. They come in all different styles, colors, shapes. They can be worn with anything from a pencil skirt to boyfriend shorts.
A "jeans and tee" look has the connotation of being casual, and comfy. While this is true in part, a jeans and tee can also be dressed up! You can wear this look for a date night, work (if jeans are allowed!), meetings etc! Today I am sharing three ways for you to easily dress up this look.
I am a shoe fanatic. Your shoes can make or break an outfit, step it up a notch or bring it down to a relaxed level. Shoes can make a statement while bringing your whole look together. Want to dress up a jeans and tee? Start with the shoes. Obviously, heels are going to be the dressiest option. A classic pump is great for dressing up any look! But, you can also choose a sandal, some flats, or boots that have a dressier look to them. Sandals with a heel, flats with embellishments, or black boots with a classy gold buckle or embellishment are all great options. I've linked several different options below, so you can shop them or just get an idea of what look to go for.
Like your shoes, your bag can say a lot about your look. Try to go for neutral, classy colors. A small quilted bag with a long dainty chain, or a minimal handbag like I have styled above, or a clutch are your best bets. (And of course, throwing some flowers in it really brings your look from casual to....okay maybe not haha! ;)
This is probably the easiest and most effective way to dress up any look! Your jewelry can add so much statement, sass, dressy vibes or whatever look you are going for. I love my earrings and tend to gravitate towards the statement pieces. A simple crystal cluster stud or dangle earrings are my favorite when I'm going for a dressy look. Anything with gold and/or neutral colors are the perfect choice for dressy or classic vibes.
I love these ones from Mod & Jo and am so excited to start working with them! When I found their jewelry line, I immediately fell in love! I was a big fan before they reached out to me, so I am particularly excited for this partnership! They have something for every style and comfort level, from simple studs to crazy statements, to dainty layered necklaces and large, unique rings. You will not be disappointed. You can even use my code, 'ALYSSA15' for 15% off your purchase. You can see another pair of their earrings I styled here. This necklace in blue calcedony, matched perfectly to the earrings and my shirt!
I hope these tips helped! Let me know in the comments :) Read through my 5 min takeaway for a surprise 4th tip!
A jeans and tee look can be dressed up in three easy ways. When you want to be comfortable in a jeans and tee but need to look a little more polished, professional, or dressy, you can do that!
1. Choose your shoes wisely. Try to go for a heel if you're comfortable with that. If not, choose a flat, sandal, or boot that have a dressier feel to them. I.e, embellishments, a small heel, a leather look and feel.. etc
2. Try to pair your look with a dressy bag. Something with small dainty details, like a clutch or smaller handbag, or a classic handbag.
3. Complete your look by adding some dainty or statement jewelry. If you go with statement earrings, pair it with a simple necklace and vice versa. You don't want to go too crazy with the accessories if you are going for a polished look. Simple is better!
4. Surprise number four! If the weather permits, throw on a blazer! This instantly adds a level of chic to your look! Go for neutral or light colors and clean, fitted lines.
