Never underestimate the power of jeans and a t-shirt!
Jeans and a t-shirt are about as simple as an outfit gets, but when styled perfectly, is definitely an outfit combination that can pack a punch! I recently spoke about my love affair with graphic tees and, as expected, this love has only grown. Oops!
As I’ve been finding myself rockin’ the jeans and a tee more and more of late, I thought I’d have a chat about a few of my favourite ways to style this type of outfit.
Oh how graphic tees have stolen my heart! It was basically love at first sight when I spotted this Andy Warhol UT t-shirt at the new Perth UNIQLO. Even better, its from the Mens section so fits like an oversized dream! UNIQLO hands down have the best t-shirts, so I knew this one had to come home with me.
Graphic tees have the ability to elevate a casual look – a simple print or graphic can be a cute addition and talking point, taking a simple white t-shirt and adding an extra element to the outfit. PS – how cute is this Campbells Soup print!
Black Denim Pairing
Not only is black denim my favourite variety of denim (no surprises here I am sure!), but it pairs so perfectly with t-shirts. If you want to let your t-shirt do all the talking, keep the bottoms quite simple by pairing it back with black denim.
I also think black denim is the dressier type of denim, so is a great pairing if you’re looking to create something a little ‘less casual’ and a bit more sophisticated than the casual nature of blue denim.
I snagged these UNIQLO jeans in the longest length I could so I could add some cuffing at the bottom for some added feature detail to the outfit.
I definitely consider myself to be a skinny jean kinda girl, but after recently injecting these UNIQLO boyfriend jeans into my wardrobe, I’m definitely swayed to a new style - these babies especially fit like a dream! I had to grab them in both white and blue, so expect to see the latter make an appearance in the very near future.
These boyfriend jeans are such a perfect addition to my wardrobe for those casual weekend outfits - stylish and chic but also look like you’ve thrown together a simple outfit. Now we are talkin’!
Accessorise AND THEN ACCESSORISE SOME MORE!
I’ve never been shy about accessorising my outfits, and this is also the case when it comes to causal outfits. What I consider key to an everyday jeans and tee outfit is the added accessories. Stack those wrists with a watch and your favourite bracelets, and your neck with all your favourite minimal necklaces, and the casual look is immediately elevated and more put together. Don’t forget the statement bag too - another perfect way to elevate a casual outfit.
OPT FOR a heel
While we might be more inclined to reach for a pair of sneakers or slides when it comes to a jeans and tee outfit (because hello comfort!), if you’re looking to add a bit more of a sophisticated spin on the usually casual outfit, you can’t go wrong with a black pointed heel. Adding a pointed pump or a black stiletto is one of my favourite ways to elevate jeans and tee. It’s also especially useful for taking an outfit easily from day to night!
