We all have tees but sometimes we need to dress them up last minute, or simply don’t know how else to wear it with other than jeans. Here are some simple accessory ideas that make any tee look more put-together. Let’s face it, tees are comfortable and they’re also convenient. They’re the ultimate go-to outfit option when running out the door and there is nothing wrong with having a closet full of them, right? And while we may feel like wearing a tee shirt all the time, we may not always want to rock that same old basic tee look. Fortunately, t-shirts are some of the most versatile pieces and can be transformed easily depending on how you wear it and accessorize it.
There are some easy outfit fixes for dressing up a tee. When it comes to mixing and matching clothing, there are several options. If you’re going for a flirty look, wearing a tee with a floral skirt can add some texture and complexity while still retaining the basic t-shirt’s inherent comfort. You’ll be totally date ready but still be totally comfortable. Wearing a tee with a printed or colored pant is also a great option. When wearing a bold pant, it’s always best to wear them with a solid top so a basic tee in a matching color (or simple black or white) will do perfectly. The focus of the outfit will be your legs, and a pattern or bold color will instantly make the tee appear polished, the entire ensemble put-together and balanced. And if you’re looking to wear a tee in autumn, winter or early spring, a cardigan is a great way to dress it up and keep you warm.
Accessories have the ability to redefine most clothing pieces and basic t-shirts are some of the best canvases. Depending on what you choose to wear with it, this staple, everyday piece can see countless reincarnations and never once be the same. All of your accessory options are simple and easy. A statement necklace instantly adds glam and color, especially when it features a bold color or pattern. Similarly, you can choose a colored or patterned chiffon scarf to wear around your head, neck or shoulders, each with their own drastically different look. Vests also work well, which works a bit like a cardigan but acts more like an accessory. Depending on the fabric and style of the vest, you can drastically dress up any plain outfit, especially if it features lace or satin-like fabric.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match! A tube scarf and a floral skirt can create a fun and flirty outfit, while a scarf and a printed pant will have you looking like you just walked off the runway. T-shirts are extremely adaptable, but sometimes we forget they can be worn with anything other than jeans! Play around and experiment with what you own and find just how many combinations you can muster. Chicastic has some great tube scarves and jewelry that can really help make a tee look dressy.
