Style Your Basic Outfit, T-Shirt And Jeans

A basic t-shirt and a pair of jeans are one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your wardrobe. Believe it when I say this, the number of ways you can style this attire is endless!

Here are the five coolest ways you can ginger up your t-shirt and jeans, and revamp your basic casuals to ultra-fancy ones.

1. Add a fancy accessory or a glittery footwear

The easiest way you can style your t-shirt and jeans is by pairing the outfit with one flashy piece. Turn your basic outfit into a fab one, by picking up an accessory that compliments your attire. Be it your embellished sling bag or your glittery shoes; this one piece can add all the oomph to your basic outfit.

Never go overboard with the accessories. Don’t add too many flashy pieces all at once.

2. Layer your outfit with a glossy piece

I strongly believe in the ‘everything fashion’ mantra. Layering your outfit can be fun, and if paired in the right way, it can make a strong style statement. Style this basic outfit by simply throwing on a metallic blazer or a shiny black leather jacket.

Make sure you pick a layering ensemble whose color compliments your t-shirt. A bright pink blazer over a purple tee looks tacky.

3. Color block your look

Color blocking can add a lot of liveliness to your most basic outfit. While pairing, pick the colors that are opposite on the color wheel. For starters, you can choose a yellow t-shirt with your favorite dark blue jeans and carry a bright blue sling bag to ace the look.

4. Knot up the t-shirt

There are days you don’t want to put a lot of efforts into dressing up, but still, don’t want to look too basic. Tie up a knot to your t-shirt and pep up your bleh outfit in no time.

Pick t-shirts that are a bit loose for you as they’ll give a better fit after tying a knot.

5. Sport a statement jewelry

Last but not least, a statement jewelry piece can easily add a lot of vivacity to your basic outfit. Adorn your basic casuals with a statement necklace or funky earrings, and you’ll be ready to command.

Keep your bag and footwear basic and let your jewelry do the talking.
