The Art of Dressing in a T-Shirt and Jeans

I don’t wear t-shirts often…so when I do, it’s gotta be a standout tee. That being said, there is an exact science to wearing a t-shirt fashionably and age appropriately. I’m petite and I look like a baby (so what I have been told). The last time I wore a t-shirt with jeans the Delta gate agent asked me if I was traveling with a chaperone. 30 going on 13 I guess! So here’s how to wear a tee fashionably well.



The Knot

Something as easy as a side knot can take your look from ok to great. Knots come and go but right now they are unusually hip. But more than that, they serve a very specific purpose. Knotting your t-shirt is a great way to show off your figure and reduce bulk. Consider a side, middle, or back knot the next time you suit up in a t-shirt.



Step it Up

If you are petite like me and you wear a t-shirt and sneakers, you will be mistaken for a teenager. Swap the sneaks for some heels and just like that you up your style game. And it doesn’t need to be a five inch stiletto. A high heel slide will do the trick. This pair is under $40 and available in pale blue and tomato red. Stock up while supplies last.




Surprise, surprise

Pair your tee with an unexpected bottom. A skirt, culottes, or flounce hem jeans perhaps. This style hack is just as impactful as mixing prints but it is easier to execute. So remember, knots, heels, and dynamic bottoms. Happy Friday!
