“Keeping it simple” always works in all walks of life; be it business, engineering, design, art or our topic for now, fashion. When I think of applying the principle to fashion, the only image that pops in my mind is the classic white tee with blue jeans. But whenever there is a mention of this particular outfit, it is accompanied by a controversial opinion of looking casual and frumpy. But don’t worry! We’ve got ten ways that will help you pull this outfit off easily.
THE CLASSIC WHITE TEE
Tuck it in or wear it out. Whatever the season this combination will always make you look chic in the most effortless of ways. One key tip- accessorize with a chunky belt if tucking your tee in.
THE CRISP WHITE SHIRT
Do not underestimate the power of this look. Tuck your crisp white shirt in, put on your highest stilettos and throw in some red lipstick; the world will know you mean business.
THE UNDERRATED TUNIC
It's easy breezy and super comfortable, almost like wearing nothing while looking so effortlessly attractive. A simple white tunic along with blue jeans can be a lot more flattering than you can imagine. Team it up colourful flat footwear to complete the look.
THE LAYERED WHITES
This comes in very handy for a more formal look. A formal black jacket or blazer can give you an edge when teamed with a white shirt and jeans. To let loose, simply lose the jackets. It will also be useful in covering up stains if you have been careless at lunch.
THE TIE-UP WHITE TOP
It may surprise you how much style can be amped by tying up your basic white shirt/t-shirt. A little belly show can go a long way, and you get extra points for being cute. For those with pierced bellies, this style is meant for you.
White and bohemian go hand-in-hand; I don't think one can exist without the other. Whether it's a boho-crop top or a loose bohemian number, it's bound to make you look like the head-turner you are.
THE SCARVED FASHIONISTA
Accessories have the power to single-handedly change your look from simple to stylish. It doesn't take much, just a clear idea of how you want to style your look. A scarf loosely placed around the neck can make you look like the girl next door, while a delicate scarf tied around the neck with a white top, jeans and pumps make you a sexy siren.
Hats are a seriously underused accessory. Any shape, colour and texture can be worn when teaming with a basic white tee and jeans. Don't over-accessorize when using headgear as it tends to take away from the look.
This one’s a winner. You want to wear something comfortable but look party-ready? Just stack on a statement necklace with a bulky watch over your tee and jeans. It's the best way to look ultra-stylish while staying comfortable and in your element.
BAG IT ALL
A formula that never fails. Why should wearing a white tee with jeans make you feel underdressed at all when you have a stylish, preferably a big and bold bag to make you the stunner you are. It takes care of making you look like a perfect 10 while carrying your little world at your fingertips. If that's not a win-win, I don't know what is.
