I’m having a major obsessive moment with all things cotton, lace and pretty. What I love about tops that have those details is that they’re so soft, feminine and dreamy. You could style them to be sexy (think pencil skirt, major heels) or down to earth (think denim and leather booties).
Due to the awful weather we’ve been having, I’m also kind of obsessed with being really cozy and warm. (Who am I kidding, I always want to be cozy.) Since it’s spring time you want to start shifting away from wearing very heavy, wintery sweaters that don’t necessarily speak of spring, or the coming summer. For this dilemma, I’ve switched over into wearing cardigans of all shapes and sizes though I keep the colors fresh, light and away from too many heavy wintery colors like browns, dark yellows, and reds. Go fresh with greens, creams, blues, bright reds etc.
Wear some dazzling feminine esq earrings, nude heels (for a fresh look) and a great bucket bag.
We all have those tee-shirt and jean days, the ones where you’re rocking your fav vintage tee or boyfriend sweater and a pair of smoking hot cigarette leg skinny’s. It’s the day that putting in that extra effort to be runway just seem like a bit much. In past, present and future, the jeans and tee look has survived all the fashion trends, still maintaining ease and every day comfort.
Taking that classic look from so-so to sassy is easier than you imagine and as someone who lives in jeans and tee mode more than I’d like to confess, I feel as though I have some insight into “making it work”.
Lets start from the top and work our way down.
I like to stick to something natural looking. Doing too much work will make you look a little Barbie-ish. It means that you’re trying too hard to pull off a look, rather than owning your sense of ease and style. Whether it’s natural wavy beach hair (salt water spray and dry shampoo at the roots works wonders to achieve this look) or a fun top knot that has some texture, or a messy side braid, you’re bound to look fresh, comfortable and trendy.
I like going for something that’s a little more than just natural. A cat eyeliner adds that sass while a subtle smokey eye adds intrigue. Polish off with a nude or fun lip color and your overall appearance can vacillate between classy and sassy.
When wearing a tee shirt (or in fact, any simple top), try a sparkly jewelry collection. Whether it’s vintage diamond stud earrings, gold bangles and a solid leather belt or a long necklace, make sure it adds a sense of richness to your outfit. Again, this separates your look from drab, to fab.
If the jewelry option doesn’t appeal to you, try a fun scarf. Whether it’s a chunky knit one, fur or linen, drape it loosely around your neck.
At this point anything goes, except sneakers or work-out shoes, those are meant for the gym or long walks. I like a pair of flats, booties, cute kitten heels or even Havianas. Pumps or high heels can work if you’re wanting to step it up a notch, but that case is rare.
Have fun and experiment! Nothing looks better on you than you being you.
